There have been no shortage of runway falls in the past few seasons. At left, we have poor Elise Crombez taking a dive at Proenza Schouler SS 07, and just the other day a model at the Dior 2008 Resort show (yes, resort is already here, can you believe it?!), had some high heel-related difficulties herself. And, as I'm sure you've noticed, sky high heels and platforms--often exceeding 5 inches--are everywhere at the moment.
Even if you're comfortable walking in your 110mm Louboutins, you may want to check out Legwork, a workout video dedicated to the art of walking in heels. The preview offers tips for correcting "wobbly ankles," "stiff knees," and (my personal favorite) "gripping of the thighs." Featured in Vogue Paris, among other esteemed pubs, the 30-minute DVD features exercises from professional dancers for grace and stamina as well as relief techniques from podiatrists. It's available in English and French, and on sale for $19.95 at www.legworkdvd.com. My thinking: judging from the If you're going to drop half a grand (or more) on a pair of 110mm heels, you may as well invest a fraction of that in a fun DVD that allows you to work them with confidence.
