2013 nyc FASHION WEEK 50 Fab SHOES

At the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center………shoes took to the runway……..and the Plaza.  Sexy Heels, Platforms and Boots….Stiletto Heels……d”Orsay Pumps…….T-straps….Wingtips and plenty of Stacked Heels…….studded, sequined and laced.

Most of them were INSTRUMENTS of TORTURE.  Pain was everywhere.

Lots of red soles , Christian Louboutin…….Jimmy Choo and yes, they do cost a small fortune……Louis Vuitton will empty your bank account…..and so will the Orthopedic Surgeon when you complain of pain.  BUT….. if you are as chic as Sarah Jessica Parker,  you will have to have the latest Manolo Blahniks.
