A Few Thoughts for Nine West

This week, Nine West shared a rather interesting/warped/mid-century parallel between women and footwear. The brand believes that the ladies of 2014 require shoes that fit only one of two occasions – husband hunting (because, let’s face it, every hunk loves a chunky kitten heel) or early parenting (yeah, let’s try to balance mommy-hood on a 4-inch spike stiletto).

Nine West fails to realize that today’s 20-something-year-old gal is racing against the clock – and not just the biological one. We’re also on-the-prowl for a 4.0, prized internships, a dream job, and success – no husband required.
