I would prefer not to look like an extra in Working Girl

Over the last 4 months, I swapped out the driving part of my commute for walking. I walk about 4 miles round trip. This is great, but my beloved heels are all gathering dust in my closet. I would like to do the shoe swap out at work, but I really dislike the look of running shoes and dresses clearly designed for heels. Where can I get cute shoes for this purpose or am I resigned to running shoes?

Cycling shoes--what do I need to know before I buy?

Doing my first (sprint) triathalon in about 6 weeks and need to start looking into gear. I don't have real bike/spin shoes yet, only good sneakers, and I'm ready to bite the bullet and get some. Anything specific I should know before I go into the store and ask someone knowledgeable for advice? Are there different types or are all bike shoes pretty much equal? (For instance, I'd love if I could get one pair and it would work for spin class + both the bike and run portion of the tri.)

Desciphering Shoe Description

I recently read an Ebay description for a pair of shoes in which the soles were described as "in new condition with the black refinished paint on the bottom soles." Does anyone know what this means and/or the consequences of having refinished paint on the soles?

Does Ben Sherman make quality shoes?

I'm thinking about buying a pair of Ben Sherman Manchester boots on super sale from JackThreads, but I'm concerned they'll just be another pair of cheap Chinese-made shoes and a waste of a hundred bucks. Anybody have experience with recently made Ben Sherman shoes in general or this model specifically? Alternatively, if you have good experiences with black, mid-calf (10-12 eyelet) boots, I'd like to hear those, too.

Search and buy shoes by size AND width - in Canada

I'm shopping for shoes and have a wide foot. Last I looked, Zappos had the best search option for filtering out shoes that would not fit me. Alas, I live in Canada and apparently Zappos Canada recently stopped business. What are my options in Canada for a good online store that has advanced search options like Zappos? Perhaps my only route is going onto company websites - but the only companies that I know for sure have some sort of width measurement system are: Rockport, Sketchers, New Balance....

Where is the magical shoe fit fixer fairy?

High Heeled Shoes: I got two pair at TJMaxx recently, same brand - Tahari. On both, my heels kinda slipped out of the back when walking, but I normally put these Dr Scholl's heel liner things on the inside of all my heeled shoes and that fixes that problem. However, this only worked on one pair this time. Please hope me be able to wear these awesome shoes. [more inside]

And glide... and glide...

Someone who very rarely wears high heels just got a pair of snazzy high heeled boots that I'm now wearing to work every day. (About an inch and a half tall, thick heels not stiletto) It's a learning experience. I'm trying to figure out how to walk gracefully but I still seem to be clomping awkwardly. Is there a trick to this or just practice? Also, I've observed that some women move their hips when they walk (which I've never done naturally) so I tried that but it makes this weird sensation in my hip joints like "popping" kind of. Is that normal? Is it just because it's a different kind of movement? Or does it mean I'm terribly deformed?
