    Heels That Actually Feel Like Sneakers

    In this week's StyleWatch section of PEOPLE magazine, Mariah Carey's stylist June Ambrose praises the Steve Madden shoes created for the "Adventures of Mimi" tour, saying "They crafted us a seven inch inch pump that felt like a sneaker." Personally, I couldn't imagine how a heel that high could be as comfy as my beloved Keds! But, last night I went out in my brand-new pair of Cole Haan heels with built-in Nike Air technology. I still had all of my usual wobbling on-uneven-sidewalk issues, but my feet didn't hurt! The whole sole is thickly padded and even a little bouncy. They may not replace my sneakers for long days of shopping (I stand in awe of the future Ms. Cruise's stamina) but I could definitely go out dancing without fear. -- Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

  4. I posted on this subject before, but I have to say it again. This company, Natural Comfort, has it figured out. They use 3/8" of memory foam in the insoles of their shoes. I can stand on my feet for 10 hours in clinic in these at work and not even give my feet a moment's thought all day.

    They are absolutely wonderful. I hope they come out with a whole lot more styles.
