Secondly- To the mom who always picks up her son from school wearing shoes that should only be sold to strippers I have this to say to you... Are you flippin' kidding me? You are going to wear those 6 inch stilettos to an elementary school while there is 3 inches of snow on the ground? There is ice under that snow lady! When you fall and crack your head open-and you will- yes, I will call an ambulance for you but you better believe that I will do it ONLY after I point out to any bystanders the ridiculous shoes you are wearing. We will all nod in smug agreement that your unfortunate choice of footware will be the talk of the croc/tennis shoe wearing moms for the next month or until you get out of traction.
Yes, I am jealous that I can't wear 6 inch stilettos. I can't even wear 1
inch pumps. I am one of those girls with the deadly combination of top-heaviness and weak-ankleness that would lead to the immediate snapping of both ankles if I were to even THINK of wearing those kinds of shoes. Then again, I don't know if I would wear 'em even if I could.
Don't get me wrong, obviously these shoes have their place. Strippers would look silly in Uggs. Porn stars would look out of place in scuba flippers (well, unless it was scuba porn (it exists. Google it)). Starlets would look a bit off in the head if they showed up to the red carpet wearing house slippers. I get it. I do. Stilettos have some practical applications.
Hoofing through the ice and snow to pick up your first grader... no.
