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
