Summer Shoe Threat-o-Meter
Best for: Adding height at a crowded rooftop party
Avoid: Climbing stairs in lighthouses or ancient cathedrals; chasing after children
Doctor's note: "For a wedding or other formal occasion, consider styles from Easy Spirit, Aldo or Stella McCartney—pricey but worth it. Try them with a padded insole or arch cushion from the drugstore."
