Nurses squeaked by in thick soled comfort shoes, cowgirls clomped around in work boots, and those who could get away with it wore tennis shoes or some other footwear designed less for success than for casual comfort.Still, in many work situations where dressy clothes were required, high heels reigned. Now despite holdouts who don't consider themselves dressed without an extra inch or two spiked beneath their feet the high heel is losing ground as a woman's work wardrobe staple.A national telephone survey of 500 women conducted this spring by the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society found 24 percent of working women wear high heels on the job, down from 37 percent in 1990.That's good news for women's feet, because according to the orthopedic society, more than 90 percent of all major forefoot problems occur in women.But the trend toward sensible shoes may have as much to do with fashion and comfort as a conscious nod to health. Pairing high heels with much of today's casual wear makes about as much sense as sipping expensive champagne while eating pork rinds.Ntina (pronounced Dena'') Antoniou, 25, office manager at Girl Games, glanced around at the footwear in her all female office one recent afternoon and reported an assortment of Doc Martens, Birkenstocks and tennis shoes.The only person here who wears heels is a salesperson who hasn't worked here very long,'' says Antoniou, one of the 20 somethings driving the trend toward low heeled shoes.I think I (wore heels to work) once with a pair of pantyhose and said, Never again.' It always just seemed absurd to me. People are just a lot more individual these days. I don't see a lot of young women walking around in pantyhose and skirts.''High heels, she says seem like more of an evening thing. If you're gonna get dressed up and go to the opera maybe. With an evening gown, they're just beautiful.''Al Remer, who sells shoes at Leon's Fashions, says he's noticed a swing away from high heels.There's no doubt that there's a trend toward comfortable, low heeled shoes,'' he says. Even the ladies who used to wear a high heel aren't wearing them as high. Years ago, 2 1/2 to 3 inches was standard, and 3 inch heels really don't exist anymore. Now 2 1/2 would be considered high.''5 PhotosPhoto: (1 Cover Color) On the cover: Pancake flats in plum velvet by Max Azria for BCBG, $105 at Macy's.

Men Nike Free Run 2 Blue White Yellow Quilted,Becky Luetjen became the 16th player in Colorado College history to record 500 career rebounds and CC re claimed a share of first place in the Western Division of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference with a 73 55 victory over Sewanee on Sunday afternoon. Luetjen reached the milestone with just under eight minutes remaining in the first half and set a career high with 18 to move past Lolita Curtis into 15th place with 512. She added 14 points to complete her sixth double double of the season Hannah Hoppingarner posted her first double double with 10 points and 12 rebounds. She grabbed three offensive rebounds on one possession in the first half and had a career high 11 at the break. Alyssa Aldaz scored seven of her season high 19 points to help Colorado College jump out to a 19 4 lead 6:51 into the game. After Paige Lowe dropped in a three pointer to cut Sewanee's deficit to 10 points with 8:59 to go, CC went on a 11 3 run to build its biggest lead of the half at 30 12. Dani Kabbes sank a pair of free throws with 3:11 to go to pull Sewanee to within 30 20, but Colorado College scored the next four points on free throws to build 14 point lead after 20 minutes. CC led by 29 points midway through the second half, but Dana Middleton erupted for nine of her team leading 17 points to fuel a 23 4 run that allowed Sewanee to pull to within 10 points with 3:40 to remaining. That, however, proved to be as close as the visitors would get. Aldaz knocked down her third shot from three point range and hit a jumper with 1:59 to play that returned Colorado College's lead to 17 points. Claire Elliott finished with 14 points for Sewanee, while Dani Kabbes scored 11 and grabbed a team high nine rebounds. Colorado College tied its season high with 61 rebounds, but committed 25 turnovers. CC improved to 5 4 in the SCAC and 8 10 overall. Sewanee dropped to 2 14 overall and 0 9 in the conference.

Save To 70 Off Men Nike Free Run 2 Blue White Yellow Quilted,Men Nike Free Run 2 Anthracite White Green Grey Black Footwear brands are often less heavily burdened by higher gasoline, material and distribution costs than other apparel items, while possessing greater pricing power. Many analysts anticipate that across the board apparel price increases will start in the second half of 2011. For this reason, many investors may be interested in footwear manufacturers that have strong brands and pricing power. Those stronger brands are likely more capable of passing on those increases to their loyal consumer base, while potentially also gaining market share for less capable competitors. Several footwear manufacturers and brands offer product lines that straddle multiple levels of what might be considered luxury or at least higher end, name brand options. Offering several tiers of products may be seen as damaging to the power of the brand name as a true status symbol, though an expanded product line allows a greater range of consumers and increased revenue. While some footwear brands or products may not function as a true symbol of social status, the brand name can still convey a level of quality, durability or performance that is generally accepted by its niche market. Corporation (NYSE:VFC), developed brand names as sneaker options for skateboarding and related alternative sports. Such skateboarding shoe brands are not chosen to portray wealth so much as for their proven level of performance and general acceptance amongst skateboarders. Subsequently, Sketchers attempted to further expand its brand into the rapidly growing toning shoe category that the company helped develop. It is unknown whether the toning category will survive, or whether Sketchers expansion of the brand will diminish its brand name recognition amongst the alternative sports community that initially brought Sketchers success. The brand now less represents any single lifestyle as it attempts to expand itself, though the name of the brand becomes more generally known and potentially accepted by the average consumer. Corporation is a significantly larger company than Sketchers and owns far more brands than Vans, including The North Face, Nautica, 7 For All Mankind and JanSport, among others, and recently announced the acquisition of The Timberland Company (NYSE:TBL) for about $2.2 billion. With multiple brands, the company can more easily maintain the identity of each brand by not expanding it beyond the range of its strength and character. By segmenting growth in such a manner, VCF can attempt to grow its overall market share while maintaining a focus on brand integrity. Within footwear, several small and mid cap companies own many well known brands. Several of these brands have a strong identity and market share within a niche market, similar to how Sketchers and Vans have market share amongst skateboarders. Other examples of footwear and apparel accessory companies with current market valuations between about $200 million and $3 billion include Kenneth Cole Productions (NYSE:KCP), K Swiss (NASDAQ:KSWS), Steve Madden (NASDAQ:SHOO), Wolverine World Wide (NYSE:WWW) and Crocs (NASDAQ:CROX). Kenneth Cole and Steve Madden are examples of brands that attempt to receive a premium based upon being reasonably affordable options that are still considered highly fashionable. The Crocs brand, alternatively, aims for the casual and recreational market. Wolverine produces multiple footwear types, though its namesake products are boots and other rugged outdoor work shoes. Others, such as Wolverine, will attempt to acquire such licenses to manufacture products for strong brands. Customers tend to be loyal to footwear brands, especially where they feel a particular appreciation for that brand's comfort, quality, performance and/or sense of style. Sketchers current attempt to expand the recognition of its brand into other realms of footwear may invariably diminish the perceived and/or actual focus of the brand on providing products appreciated by loyal consumers. Skateboarders and individuals who wear toning shoes appear, at least at first glance, to be unrelated groups of consumers (though possibly related as mother and son). Alternatively, and assuming the toning shoe market exists in the future, the company may have identified a larger and more lucrative market that will also support the company obtaining a larger market share of the casual shoe market. Generally speaking, changing a brand identity is a difficult and dangerous undertaking. It is for just that reason that Kenneth Cole or Steve Madden are unlikely to put out a line of work boots for men, though both are highly likely to put out multiple fashion forward dress boot options for women. Nonetheless, the prices for boots of any kind are likely to go up soon. Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

Men Nike Free Run 2 Blue White Yellow Quilted Contemporary jazz dance steps range from upbeat movements inspired by Broadway to a more flowing, ballet style. No matter the style, today's jazz dancers typically wear black or beige leather jazz shoes with a one inch or shorter heel. The shoes have a rubber sole that gives dancers the traction and flexibility they need. Some jazz shoes lace up, while others grip the foot with elastic inserts. Some of the flat, lace up variety are boxy in shape, and "New York" magazine even included a pair on a list of ugly shoe trends in 1997. Jazz dance is a fusion of styles that has changed through the years, and this evolution sometimes causes uncertainty when it comes to definitions. Jazz dance can be confused with tap dance since similar music provides the background for both dances, so sometimes jazz dancers have worn tap shoes. Most serious jazz dancers also study ballet since those techniques help dancers perform the sharp movements of jazz dance because of this connection, some jazz dancers throughout history have also worn ballet shoes.
