Heels That Actually Feel Like Sneakers

08/21/2006 at 03:00 PM ET

In this week’s StyleWatch section of PEOPLE magazine, Mariah Carey’s stylist June Ambrose praises the Steve Madden shoes created for the “Adventures of Mimi” tour, saying “They crafted us a seven inch inch pump that felt like a sneaker.” Personally, I couldn’t imagine how a heel that high could be as comfy as my beloved Keds! But, last night I went out in my brand-new pair of Cole Haan heels with built-in Nike Air technology. I still had all of my usual wobbling on-uneven-sidewalk issues, but my feet didn’t hurt! The whole sole is thickly padded and even a little bouncy. They may not replace my sneakers for long days of shopping (I stand in awe of the future Ms. Cruise‘s stamina) but I could definitely go out dancing without fear. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

4inch heals will never feel like sneakers. Ever!

I agree…over $200 is too much! You do NOT have to spend $$$$$ on shoes. Check out bargain sites like Zappos, BlueFly or SmartBargains.com. Totally can find the cutest styles without the hefty price tag. Shoes are great to buy online – I always order two pairs (size 7 and size 7 1/2) and return the ones that don’t fit!

Actually, SmartBargains.com is doing a big expansion of their shoe selection in the next few weeks. Should check back in mid-September for even better deals!
