Who cares if fabulous shoes ruin your feet?

"You have to learn how to wear his shoes—it doesn't happen overnight," [Sarah Jessica Parker] told me. "But by now I could run a marathon in a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels. I can race out and hail a cab. I can run up Sixth Avenue at full speed. I've destroyed my feet completely, but I don’t care. What do you really need your feet for, anyway?"
