We need these. . . Really?

Oooh! Tres Chic, you might say.  
But we need these shoes, because. . . why?
Because we can pierce flower blossoms on those heels, layering them up like a walking lei.
Because we can break ankles wearing them.
Because we all lay around on flowers.
Because other women will say Ooooh! Tres Chic!
Because the platforms will keep our feet 1 1/2" out of the water.
Because our toes can peek out while the rest of the foot stays warm.
Because we really don't have to walk anywhere.
Because if we did, our feet would hurt within 5 minutes.
Because we all are trying to prove we are tres chic.
Because the fashion industry says so.
Because we are all trying to cripple our feet so we can wear SAS-type shoes when we are fifty.
Because then we won't be so tres chic, only tres grandma-looking.
Like I am now.

Ha ha ha. As a very tall woman who uses her feet for transportation (fancy that), I spend large amounts of time frustrated with or angry at the women's shoe industry. With all the shoes built and sold, why is it so hard to find something cute, flat, and walk-in-able? And don't even get me started on the women's jeans industry....
