Heels are for those who pay other people to do the walking or the driving. And whereas our feminist foremothers denounced heels of any kind as hobblers of women, today's lipstick feminists extol them as an image of power. Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Gianfranco Ferre stated their belief that in the women vs. women world, heels will always spell authority.

High tech sneakers are the choice of those who walk but are really on their way to something bigger. These women pair their shoes with an iPhone and a Blue tooth. They're busy, caffeinated or raw, and know where to get the best massage, sesame noodles or vintage Chanel bags. Marc by Marc Jacobs and Y-3 were very much down with that.

They're now exploring their inner selves. These women read a lot and burn scented fig candles. They are grounded and stay close to the pavement.
