Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
I am looking for cute walking shoes that I can wear on my commute to work and they’ll still be appropriate for work. I am sick and tired of ruining my cute (nonwalkable) shoes on the stairs, escalators, and uneven sidewalks in Washington, DC. What do you suggested?
Manolo says, it is the eternal question: On the one of the hands, “OMG, those four-inch stiletto-heeled patent-leather peep-toes are AMAZING!!! I will look like the trillion dollars in them.”
On the other of the hands, the next morning, “Ayyyy! I am late for the bus, I must run!”
On the third of the hands, “Owwwww! I have fallen and broken my leg, and worse, the heel has broken off of my fancy shoe!”
On the fourth of the hands, “These orthopedic shoes which look like they were made by the medieval goatherds, are remarkably comfortable on my feet.”
On the fifth of the hands, “That cute boy in accounting, just said I reminded him of his Aunty Muriel.”
On the sixth of the hands, “Sigh, perhaps I should get some nude knee stockings to wear with my new tweed, mid-calf old-lady skirt and twin set.”
Look here is the Cole Haan Air Clair Short Boot, the comfortable shoe that would look good on the way to, and in, the office.
