Article: Why We Love the Shoes that Hurt Us

Posted in Shoes by Michelle on October 12, 2009

Extremely interesting article I found on the New York Times on the Room for Debate Blog.

The article focuses on shoes that hurt, and why we love them. Did you see that? I just paraphrased. Included are some insights/opinions from “The Editors,” and their take on the phenomena, such as:

  • “It’s About Power”
  • “The Urge to Strut”
  • “Little Girls on Stilts”
  • “The Myth of Sexual Gain”
  • “Platforms = Tendonitis” (at times, I will admit)
  • “Visual Impact”
  • “The Risks, The Rewards”
