Another find from the Zappos.com heat map, this is “Rachel” by Ara:
Half a dozen colors are available, including something called “lava,” but this is the beige suede/sort-of-crocodile version. For some reason, I read this as the shoe for a woman who wants to look like she plays golf without having to suffer the indignity of actually showing up at the first hole. At an inch and three quarters, it’s not exactly flat, but it’s not going to tilt you forward at an alarming angle either.
Reasons why I looked at this shoe: (1) I wanted to see what it costs, which is $145; (2) I wanted to see if it had anything to do with Ara Parseghian, which it doesn’t.
