And now for the completely mundane: After 20 years or so of wearing heels no higher than my Chuck Taylors, I had to buy character shoes for The Sound of Music. I got the leather “Footlight” shoes from Capezio. Bliss!
The shoes didn’t need any breaking in and, more importantly, neither did I. I don’t feel like I’m tottering around ready to fall over. I can even almost run in them. Not that I recommend it (running, that is).
