[Cue voice over narration].
In a city of eight million people, sometimes it's hard to stay on your feet. Especially when you're a woman in Manhattan. Teetering in a pair of Manolo Blahniks that put her at eye level with the Empire State Building, Charlotte York truly was an uptown girl. But, is it true, that the higher the heel, the higher a New York woman's social status and style? And, if we wear flats, does that mean we really fall flat?
Davis doesn't stand (in comfortable flats) alone in her opinion. Karl Lagerfeld recently sent models down the runway in sneakers, and Dior just debuted sporty slip-ons for Fall 2014. Stilettos for sneakers may just become a popular switch, which means a present-day Carrie Bradshaw may be found fogging up the windows of Niketown, whispering sweet nothings to a pair of silver Dunks.
