Do they want us to have ugly feet?

Apparently they do. I found these shoes while searching for some updated images for some ads I'm trying to put in my mini-book. England based Punitive Shoes sells a whole bunch of different styles of this "ballet shoe" (even boots!). All I can say is: If this catches on in the U.S, I don't care if Beyonce rocks these; I can't do it, I won't do it.

Can you imagine the pain? YIKES!

those are cool looking shoes, but i don't know how a person's leg and foot can possibly stay in that position while walking.

Ouch...looks painful!

Speaking of Beyonce...what do you think about her recent quote: "I'm just jealous that I wasn't born Latina. I wish I had been because the culture is so beautiful. I'm very grateful Latinos are embracing me."

Check out some of the colorful comments from the public: http://blackvoices.aol.com/blogs/2007/09/07/notable-quotable-beyonce/

Daaaaaannnnggg!!! I should've known B was already hip to that European shoe game. I never saw that video before. See, I was about to buy that extended CD that had all those videos on it, but then they were taken off the shelf when that some lady said Beyonce never got permission to sing that one song...
Then I was mad because I wouldn't get the FULL extent of the extended version, so I never bought it. And one of my homeboys sent them all to me, and I only watched Get me Bodied. heehee.

It isnt to walk in. I also came across these adorable shoes. Truth is there for the shoe fettish people. They are for people with shoe collections and such. Only for looks. They are a 7" heel and merely for the shoe loving type. In fact the models for the shoes themselves are laying down or sitting in a chair.

They are fetish shoes people. My boyfriend has a foot and shoe fetish and I have a few pairs of ballet boots. I used to do ballet so yes I can walk in them, but no I don't wear them out to dinner and the club all night! They're fun, and they don't hurt anymore than ballet pointe shoes do.
