Natasha Nakamura's Diary
Don't Tokyo women realize that high-heeled shoes, particularly ones that have to be strapped on, are not made for walking? They are only for showing off the curve of the leg. This city is too large for traipsing around in high heels. A popular alternative seems to be the athletic shoe, but the problem here is that this suggests the wearer is preparing to sprint 400 meters or at least trek around Mars. They simply do not go with a sweet summer dress. The Italians are the people to design athletic shoes that are not only comfortable to walk in but also make a statement.
