Oprah's Shoe Pain-O-Meter
Most of us organize our shoes according to style, color, or occasion (which pairs are for work, weekends, or big nights out). But Oprah also organizes hers by how long she can bear to keep them on her feet. "I've gone to parties, wearing shoes that hurt so much, I wanted to come home early," Oprah says. "What fun is that?"
"This Manolo Blahnik slingback is the perfect heel. I can actually wear it out of the building, not just between the control room and stage."
"I love these shoes, but as cute as they are, after wearing them for an hour, my shins hurt so much that I had to go to the doctor!"
"Mariah Carey gave me these. They're great for making my legs look longer during a sit-down show, but that's it. I don't know how Mariah sings and dances in them!"
"Another pretty pair that's strictly for TV—I take them off the minute the show is over."
"I can tolerate these Jimmy Choos for longer. I can even walk in them. The wider toe box gives me more wiggle room."
"You know how you used to come home from school and change out of your good clothes? Well, these Prada flats are my after-school shoes—cute and comfortable."
