Soon to be Banned: Killer Heels

File these under: Call Girl Special.Work as a call girl in advertising? Occasionally have to interact with the shadier elements of life? Are the remnants of the handsier members of Occupy Wall Street camped out on your front step? With the government acquisition of the whistle industry, and the subsequent restrictions on firearms in favor of a push for rape whistles, ladies on the go aren’t quite sure how to protect themselves on the (since the sequester) mean streets.

As much of the Nation is already doing economically, we advise looking to Texas to see what damsels in distress are doing there.

Papal Shoe-sury

Francis doesn't want to try walking in Benedcit's shoes...Since he was selected to replace Pope Benedict, a man so desperate to sleep in on Sunday he gave up the papacy, people have been wondering exactly what type of pope, Francis would end up being. Would he be a Marxist, spewing social liberation theology a la George Wallis pope? Would he be a moderate? Would he fight corruption in the church? Would he even acknowledge corruption in the church?

As the old saying goes, “If you want to know the measure of a man, simply look at his shoes.”

If ruby slippers could get the job done for the Dorothy and Benedict, why is Pope Francis passing them up?

Winter 2013’s “It” Shoe

Even odds these will cost more than a month's food rations.Should that be the “It” shoe or the “Ick” shoe?

The word winter congers up thoughts of icy cobble stone and cold pavement. So naturally if you were a designer doing your winter line you’d want something with all of the cushion of a flip-flop and all of the tackiness of a tutu.


Chicago: Taxing Kicks

A connection between gangs and certain kicks? Nooo.As Argentina enacts a two month price freeze on all supermarket products, a similarly cash-strapped Chicago is mulling over the idea of instituting an extra 25 cent tax on all sneaker purchases---you know, for the children.

Black Friday: Slipper Picks

Slippers for everyone, and a chicken in every pot.Once you’ve crossed off ammo from your Black Friday shopping list, slippers are another family fave.

Muk luks, Minnetonka, L.L. Bean, or even Gucci, there are slippers out there for everyone on Santa’s nice list.

Special note: Keep an eye out for a resurgence of moccasins in the Northeast to couple with Elizabeth Warren’s big election win.

Get Your Boots On

Boots of the season. Not a lot of jazz going on.As the crisp Fall chill turns to a winter howl, everyone from Baltic Avenue long passed Boardwalk has got their boots on.

With opulence this and ornate that rounding out this season, boots however have taken a much more practical approach. Buckles, leather, and water resistant materials are key, with last year’s thigh high boots being dropped in favor of going back down to the ankle, and a snip above or below the knee.
