I already talked about celebrity shoes this week, but then I came across another feature on Yahoo done by Nikki Boyer (host of Daytime in No Time on Yahoo.com) about an Early Show on CBS.
The segment talked about celebrities Michelle Williams, Kirsten Dunst and Maggie Gyllenhaal and how they have all embraced what Nikki Boyer called “Foul Footwear” and what most would call old-fashioned. The brand of shoe is called Worishofer, which are made in Germany – originally by a German Podiatrist in the 1940’s. Apparently, the souls have shock absorbers and help with bunions. Do young people really get bunions? Guess that’s a stereotype assumption?
This led me to look up the Worishofer to find out more about them since the video segment that Nikki shared was only about a minute and 13 seconds long (it’s the first one on the video link at the end of this article). All I could really find is store carrying them. The store that featured, what seemed like a complete line of Worishofers was a store featuring quite a few different styles and colors called Endless Shoes. They are very reasonably priced considering Hollywood stars are wearing them and that they are considered orthopedic shoes. Below are just a couple of different styles and additional colors to show you what Worishofer shoes have to offer besides the ones the celebrities are wearing in the above photos:
Worishofer Womens 251 Sandal– Retail $42.51-$59.95
Worishofer Womens 562 Sling Back Sandle – Retail $51.71-$74.95
Worishofer Womens 583 Sling Back Sandle – Retail $74.95
I thought this last one was probably the ugliest, what about you? Do you think these are too old fashioned to wear or are you on board with these celebrity stars who have taken a fancy to them?
