These heels were made for walkin'??


What to do? It’s such a quandary
Look sexy or be comfortable, what’s the boundary?

It is a dilemma that many city women face
High heels look great, but in them you win no race

Each morning I wake up thinking heels would be cuter
But I would only make it to work if I road to the door on a scooter

I am in awe of the women who shop in heels on Madison
How do they walk so gracefully without getting a giant bunion?

Last week I walked to 56th and it just about killed me
When I finally put on sneakers, my feet screamed with glee!

I guess I am just more of a sport shoe and flip-flop girl
Only for special occasions will I bring my heels out for a whirl

I am with you Erin! Also, think about the long-term damage to the knees, ankles, back and hips. I wear flats to work, but will slip on heels for a special meeting.

I can't believe it's come to this: I actually walk to work every morning wearing my Asics, then change into my crazy high heels once I'm in my cubicle. Why do I even bother? It's not like I'm going to impress "Mr. Right" while I'm confined to the 5th floor of a 10 story building with a M/F ratio of roughly 1:500.

Maybe D was right: women don't dress to impress men - they dress to impress other women. :-)

Long live stilettos!!

Oh yeah, I thought of one more reason heels in the city are bad... terrorism. I am convinced that people would die trying to get out of the subway in a disaster because people wearing heels walk too slow... slow walkers drive me nuts!

JP, D might just be right! I've never thought about it that way, but it is probably true! That said, I think it depends on the office;-0 I've heard some crazy stories!

i'm with you on the slow walkers! and i'm no new yorker. jp-- tell d he's definitely on to something.

oh, and the German soccer game (Europa Meisterschaft qualification game) was actually quasi-interrupted (!!!) by a ticker about what's happening in NY. Doesn't sound like it's anywhere near where you are, but hope all is well.
