When I was little, I remember my mom always wearing skirts and never leaving the house without her red lipstick and high heels. As time went on, she traded in her heels for tennis shoes and skirts became slacks. She never wore jeans until later in life.
I used to dress up when I went anywhere but now it seems that I've fallen into the same mode; foregoing fashion for comfort. I think it's because I don't work in an environment anymore which kept me out meeting with new prospects and a client base. And I am constantly involved with kids' activities and working around the house and cleaning up little mishaps...
I still don't wear tennis shoes out side of the house much. I reserve them for work and exercise but I still feel like I have clown feet when I wear them. Isn't there a high heeled tennis shoe??
So where do you stand: (pun completely intended) Heels or flats?
On a side note...

I love weird roadside attractions, don't you?
RIP shoe tree...
BOISE, Idaho U.S. Forest Service officials in northern Idaho said the rubber-soled decorations that made the “shoe tree” a beloved Priest River landmark also helped fuel its demise.
Tourists and locals since the 1940s have dressed the tree with hundreds of pairs of shoes, nailing sneakers to its trunk and hanging work boots from its branches.
Firefighters found the tree engulfed in flames late Thursday, and the blaze was difficult to extinguish because the sizable cedar was covered in melted shoe rubber.
Officials have long discouraged people from adding shoes to the tree, which had become a roadside attraction featured on various travel websites.
