Coming Back Down To Earth - Fashionable Women Can Walk Again

Is this a result of the economy and a returning sense of seriousness?

From Manolo The Shoe Blogger

The End of the Highest of High Heels?

Manolo says, the Manolo has been predicting the end of the ultra-extreme towering heels for many months now, and at last it has come to pass, as announced by Leon Andre Talley himself.

Designers with an obsession for towering torture chambers, often poorly designed
for the well-being of the foot, must get a reality check. I, for one, am over
the mania for the high, high heel. Too many career women look like a herd of
fashion beasts, aping one another in impractical shoes . . . Can’t anyone take a
cue from First Lady Michelle Obama, in the elegant low-heeled shoes she always
wears? A flat would be nice.

You know I love heels and don't (yet) own a pair of flats, but even I've been feeling like the shoes lately are just stupid. To think, people raised their eyebrows at my Prada flower feet for being too extreme and then blew right past that level to greater heights of both height and weirdness. It's such "me too" behavior.

Wendy, like you I love shoes high heels, especially with comfortable platforms...but up to a reasonable height.
