Sarah Jessica Parker Blames Cheap Shoes for Ruining Her Feet

If you know Sarah Jessica Parker, you know she’s been called a style icon since her role as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City. She would run around NYC in her Manolo Blahnik’s like no ones business. Now, in an interview with Net-A-Porter, Sarah said it was the cheap shoes she wore in “I Don’t Know How She Does It” permanently damaged her feet.

The cheap shoes Sara bought for her movie role? Aldo and Nine West. She felt those brands were more realistic for her character.

“So I got shoes from there and the bottom of the shoes aren’t leather, they are plastic, so I slipped a couple times, twisted my ankle. I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there…You’ve created that bone. it doesn’t belong there. It’s sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, ‘You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop — and don’t put cheap shoes on us’?”

Really, it was the cheap shoes that did your feet in? I honestly don’t believe it; $5 or $500 heels I believe wreck your feet. Heck, it could be the unsupported flip flops or ballet flats that did her feet in too. Who really knows. I think it makes her sounds a little snobby for blaming “cheap shoes.” In my own humble opinion, Aldo and Nine West are not “cheap” brands. I’m a cheap girl and they are over my budget when it comes to shoes.

When it comes to shoes, does higher price always mean better quality? They may last longer, but are they better for your feet?
