Healthier Sex Life from Heels? Well then…

Inspiration832

In an earlier post I discussed research from some Italian doctors explaining how high heels helps you sex life. Well,  just passed by an older mention form fox news that also claims the same. Check out the article here.

My first thought is to say, show me the stilts, but they say only about a 15 degree incline is necessary (like 2 or so inches I believe).

BEAUTIOUS BOOTS!

As the seasons change and I re-organize my closet of shoes and other nonsense I rarely wear- I pull out the boots for fall and winter.  What typically defines a boot is “footwear that covers the whole foot and lower leg” but that’s now false (silly Webster) as more recently, boots are made with holes in them which ads a whole new side of sexy to the footwear.

Nevertheless, boots come in all shapes, sizes, and styles.  Some boots are made for walking and others are definitely not (well, long distances at least). This post looks at the variations of this so-called “boot” form of footwear and picks out some of my favorites from each category. I’ve done my research and to my knowledge all of the boots you can find on heels.com for cheaper than anywhere else, Zappos, etc….Also, use this link to receive free shipping and free returns on every order through heels.com!

Knockoff or Not?: Madden & Louboutin

Steve Madden comes out with a pump very similar in design to the Dillian Pump, a very popular Spring 2009 collaboration with Christian Louboutin and Phillip Lim. Hot or Neon pink is another big trend for Fall 2009 which is also incorporated into this hot selling pair of Madden hells called “Fiestaa”

Fiesstaa - Fuchsia Suedevs.christian-louboutin-dillian-ruffled-pumps-orange

Copy-cat, bad knock off, or am I just seeing things? It is arguable.

The Evolution of Footwear in America- starting with Columbus Day!

nativeamericansdiscovercolumbus

As the story is told, in 1492 Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue and accidentally ended up in America – were he met the Algonquians.  Obviously, traditional European dress varied extremely from traditional Native American dress.  One of those differences was footwear.  While Native American apparel varied greatly from tribe to tribe- one thing remained relatively common- the footwear as most tribes wore what we call “moccasins.” Interestingly enough, if you look at all the drawings from Europeans first coming in contact with Native Americans- you will see that nearly all the illustrations show Native Americans barefoot- wonder why? Nevertheless,   this post, randomly inspired by Columbus Day, focuses on moccasins – Moccasin history and various styles with all their comfortable glory.

Moccasin History:
(Information from MarieShoes.com – the moccasin, slippers, and boot specialists)

While Native American Apparel varied greatly from tribe to tribe- the one  nearly universal element was the moccasin.  The word “moccasin” comes from an Algonquian word (also spelled mocasin, mocassin, moccassin, mocassions,or mocussin, depending on the language and transcriber), but that is only because Algonquians were the first Indians encountered by Europeans–they were used as footwear from Sonora to Saskatchewan Native Americans.  While the term  “moccasins” may be understood and accepted by all of them at this point, most Indian tribes have their own native word for them.

American Indian moccasins were originally made of soft leather stitched together with sinew. Though the basic construction of Native American moccasins was similar throughout North America, moccasin patterns were subtly different in nearly every tribe, and Indian people could often tell each other’s tribal affiliation simply from the design of their shoes. (In fact, the common names of some large nations like the Blackfoot and the Chippewas refer to their characteristic moccasin styles.) Tribal differences included not only the cut of the moccasins but also the extensive beadwork, quillwork, and painted designs many Indian people lavished on their shoes. In some tribes hardened rawhide was used for the sole for added durability, and in others rabbit fur (or, later, sheepskin) was used to line the leather moccasins for added warmth.

Since then, however, the style has evolved somewhat into a very adorable form of footwear today: the moccasin.  The beauty of the shoes is that they are so comfortable- they’re feel slippers (lots of slipper style moccasins that are ridiculously comfortable and warm).  Yet, the shoes if worn right can be a very trendy and sexy statement.  Check these out:

So comfortable and quite stylish.  Thank you Native Americans for these amazing contributions to footwear.
