I'm also a new fan of Claire Flowers - a designer out of St. Louis who decided it was high time to create a better stiletto. We all know that heels are hard for the Boston gal - since many of us walk or take the T to get around (on cobblestone streets, no less), we need a sturdy, comfortable shoe. Flowers created a functional design (think, wide-at-the-bottom heel that won't get stuck in grates, a non-slip sole) that's also built with luxe, buttery leather. It's a thoughtful approach to a somewhat intimidating style of shoe, making the stiletto simply easier for women to wear.
