That may be true. But I just finished a book that was all about an Italian family that made shoes...and they called themselves cobblers.

Actually, the Italian term would be ciabattino.

[quote=LexWest;16339969]Flats don' provide enough arch or heel support. Walking in flip flops alters the way one walks.
/quote]

Food for thought:
Pre pregnancy -10 inch stilettos
Post pregnancy - flip flops and 1/2 inch heels (even at a wedding)

I'll skip the flip flops. Some of them are cute, but I have flat feet. I plan on wearing heels for awhile though. Short of amputation of both legs, nothing's gonna stop me. If that were to happen, I'd have to start walking on my hands. If that were to happen, I would be wearing my shoes. I'm just a diehard shoe fashionista.

No disrespect intended but heels no higher the 2" won't do much harm. Just avoid the skyscraper 4" heels that really throw you entire body out of whack and you should do ok.

I agree with the OP post. My grandmother, who grew up in the twenties and thirties, wore high heels her whole life. By the time she was 90, it was heart breaking, she was almost as crippled as those Chinese women who had their feet wrapped. Her feet were gnarled, arthritic, and she was in constant pain. She could barely walk at all. She never wore flip flops, tennis shoes, she always wore heels, the higher the better. She was sexy, true...but she paid dearly for that look.
