Here are a couple of photos of Ciara in her latest music video. I don’t even know where to begin with this. As Michael K from Dlisted.com puts it, MacGyver meets Hookers at the Point.
When you own a business, it seems that everyone invites you to their fund raising auctions. One of our fund raisers offered a whitewater rafting trip down the Grand Canyon, which Mr. R5 and I won. I am quite excited about it because this is my first rafting trip down the Colorado River. I am a little concerned because this is the hottest time of year and next week is supposed to be really hot, so I am not looking forward to a week of 105 degree weather.
I have been to the Grand Canyon several times. I hiked about half way down, a couple of years ago, which was fun, but the altitude on the South Rim averages 7000 feet. After about 4 heart attacks (not really, but it felt like it), we had to turn around because our friend had to get to the airport. I love The Canyon.
Anyways, I had to pick up some hikey, watery, sportsy sandals, so off to Cabellas I went. I wanted something functional, comfortable and stylin’. What I wanted was something like this:

Hi there- if you guys could possibly help ID these shoes, I would greatly appreciate it!!! I saw these amazing platform boots on the Bergdorf website- a model is wearing the shoes in the Haider Ackermann Bonded Leather Leggings posting but I can’t find the shoes anywhere on the site. The shoes can be found here.
It took a little bit of research, but I’m pretty sure I’ve found your mystery boots (shown in the center column between the two original model shots that started this shoe hunt).
Bad puns abound when a property has been around as long at the Star Wars Franchise. But, I’m not making this one up.
Today is Star Wars Day.
One simple phrase “May, the fourth, be with you” + an enthusiastic fan base (All Jar Jar hating aside) embracing a corny pun, and a quasi-holiday is born.
So, what more appropriate footwear to celebrate “Star Wars Day” than the Adidas Originals “Star Wars” line of shoes that were released earlier this year?
Styles are inspired by Tie-fighters, the Millenium Falcon, Princess Leia, and of course, Darth Vader – among others:
I’m going to admit here to being slightly bummed that the Millenium Falcon & Vader shoes get cool nerdy poster photo ops while the Leia shoes get stock shoe-photography treatment. I’ll assume that someone just decided that another angle on the shoe was needed …. ’cause you know there are plenty of shots of Leia armed for bear and taking no prisoners – and I’d hate to get all feminist on somebody in marketing, makes me all cranky-like.
Adidas Star Wars shoes and athletic clothing are available at Adidas online and authorized brick-and-mortar Adidas retailers and range from $80 – $120.

According to the Skecher’s Website:
Tone-ups® sandals are a great new way to help tone your legs, get more exercise and lose weight while you walk! Tone up in style in our top sellers and new arrivals.*
* Walking regularly in Tone-ups® may lead to the fitness benefits noted. individual results may vary
Skechers certainly has the market saturation and household name recognition to make a good run at this.
And, if you are one of that seemingly growing segment of the population that embraces thonged sandals as everyday casual and business wear, you’ll be happy to see a wide number of colors and fabrics available for your perusal. The following is just a small sampling of currently available styles:
I, as no great fan of flip-flops in capacities outside of beachwear, am unlikely to be swayed into buying a pair of these.
But, for flip-flop lovers galore? These may be a tempting wardrobe addition.
As is the case with Shape Ups, the main question for Tone Ups will be the same: Do they work as claimed?
In regard to the validity of any health claims, that issue remains to be seen and tested objectively in the real world.
However, whether or not rolling-stride walking shoes such as these are actually miracle bun and calf shapers, I suspect that anything that gets people on their feet and get moving is a positive thing.
