“one shoe can change your life” – cinderella

IMG_69011985, I was living in Paris and everyone was laughing at me. In true Working Girl style, I walked everywhere in my tretorn tennis shoes changing into proper shoes once I got where ever I was going. My French colleagues were appalled.

my collection Canadian born Tanya Heath had a similar experience. But while I just kept on being the funny American, she invented a whole new kind of shoe. A footwear miracle. A sophisticated shoe with a changeable heel.

It wasn’t easy. It took over three years and 14 technical experts to figure out how to make a shoe that could withstand being moved repeatedly to different heel heights. Then they had to make them beautiful. Lucky for me they succeeded.

These are my now-not-so-new favorite shoes. The Toronto boutique opened about the same time I moved to the city 1-½ years ago. I couldn’t resist. I bought my first pair immediately. I blame the beautiful window. I have popped in regularly ever since to see what’s new, say hi and pick up the occasional heel. Recently I bought a boot to compliment my original pump.IMG_7216IMG_8954

These luxury shoes and heels are all made in France. They are not inexpensive… comparable to Louboutin’s or Ferragamo’s. The heels come in six different styles, a ton of different colors and textures and range in height from 4.5 to 8.5 cm. They are super easy to change. You push a little button and give the heel a hard tap. Suddenly one shoe becomes a whole bunch of different looks…. elegant, silly, sexy! Always comfortable. Leslie-Ann Dominy, the owner of the Toronto store, says these are shoes for women who are over the pain! They are a dream come true for the woman who likes to travel light.

I’ve decreed a new pair of heels the perfect hostess gift… after all they last longer than flowers and come in the cutest little bag. Soooo next time I invite you for dinner…
