SOMETIMES IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SHOES
Whether facing the forces of evil or simply battling a bad hair day, fantastic footwear is key.
Yes, there are the right shoes for the right situation, and not every moment calls for Manolos. Sometimes a woman’s gotta be fierce as well as feminine, fiery as well as fragile. And when the legwork required is a roundhouse, when a girl’s mantra has to become “I am woman, hear me roar,” those are the times it’s good to know there’s magic in the world…because in super-powered pumps, the shrinking- est Violet or the nervous-est Nellie can do anything. Every step in magic shoes is sure to be a big one.
