Shoes for March the 8th

Today is March 8th, International Women's Day. As usual, this day is met with general ignorance across the US, though most European and Asian countries make a modicum of effort to mark the occasion. If you're a feminist or feminist sympathizer, you know the kind of issues that you should be concerned with (if not, get a dose of good ol' Twisty).

Since the scope of this blog is to fight for every woman's right to stylish AND comfortable footwear, let me answer a question some readers may be wondering about. What kind of shoes should you get your woman? Well, whatever you do, avoid anything with spike heels. Really. Even if she's a lover of high heels, she will still love you (all the more so, perhaps) if you give her feet a break with, say, some beautiful Icon shoes. For example, this nice ballet skimmer:

Or, for even warmer days, a pretty slide:

They are whimsical, yet sticking to classical shapes and fit you can't go wrong with. They are supremely comfortable, with soft insoles and incredible arch support. The leather is soft and supple and there is virtual no break-in time. They may not be glamorous or couture or even high-fashion (and by all means, avoid the styles that might remotely smell of kitsch); however, they are clearly made keeping in mind how a woman should feel and walk in her shoes. So, even though she may love her Louboutins, know that her tired feet will be eternally grateful for a pair of Icons. They are also happy, happy shoes: you can't look at them and not smile. Right?

You can buy them on Zappos,, and various other places on the Internet or specialty stores (in the greater Philadelphia area, the Benjamin Lovell stores). You can even find them at, where all shoes are on sale for $99, though in a limited number of sizes and styles.

The great novelist had gone mad, but now there seemed to be some hope for his recovery Diablo III Gold. For six months, he had been sitting at his typewriter pounding out a novel. Finally, he pronounced it completed and brought the book to his psychiatrist, who eagerly began reading it aloud:  General Jackson leaped upon his faithful horse Diablo 3 Gold and yelled, 'Giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap' The doctor thumbed through the rest of the manuscript Diablo III Gold. There's nothing here but 500 pages of giddyaps! he exclaimed.  Stubborn horse, explained the writer.

Let me think, tears still flow. original or so deep love you, maybe D3 Gold, maybe not understand this have no life Give your love has been very quiet, to exchange your concern.
