No More Shoe Removals for Kids at Airports!

Posted in Children's Shoes, Health & Wellness, Shoes, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

Well what do you know? The TSA has gained some common sense this month and has decided that children 12 and younger are less of a terrorism risk — at least as far as airports are concerned.

As a podiatrist, I really hate to see people, especially children, walking barefoot through the airport. There are so many germs, from fungus to bacteria to viruses, including plantar’s warts, that can be transferred from person to person in a public place like an airport floor. I think it’s great that our children don’t have to go through this anymore, aren’t you?

The agency, charged with anti-terrorism security at the nation’s airports, will no longer require children to remove their shoes before they go through airport scanners, beginning this month.

“We do want to move, and are moving, to a more risk-based approach to screening passengers,” Napolitano told Congress. TSA wants to streamline procedures for low-risk passengers. This will enhance the agency’s ability to focus on passengers who either we don’t know or who are high-risk.

Napolitano spoke during a hearing at the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The new policy is expected to be implemented soon.

TSA, part of the Homeland Security Department, already has used a modified pat-down for children 12 and younger as part of a pilot program to speed up security searches. Still, the agency is not abandoning all such searches or the requirement to remove shoes at times.

“There is a need to keep security precautions unpredictable,” Napolitano said. “There will always be some unpredictability built into the system, and there will always be random checks even for groups that we are looking at differently, such as children,” she said.

The Shoe Expert in USA Today!

Posted in Athletic Shoes, Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

Once again I have to say a big THANK YOU to all of my fans, friends, and readers who have consistently logged in to see what I have to say about shoes, especially women’s shoes! So thank you, thank you , thank you! Because of all of this activity, my blog was picked up by USA Today who interviewed me a few weeks ago to discuss shoes of course. The online version of the article was published yesterday, but the printed version will be available next week.

Some of the shoe types that we discuss in the article are Flip Flops, UGGs (or boots like the classic UGGs),Foldable Ballet Flats, Platform Pumps, Stilettos, Minimalist Shoes (such as the Vibram Five Fingers and the yoga toe shoes), and the dreaded Rocker Bottom Athletic Shoes (yes, we all know about these fashion-don’ts, don’t we, ladies?).

I’m sure if you’ve been one of my readers during this past year, you know that I’ve discussed each one of these shoes at least once. Sometimes on this blog we talk fashion, function, or both, but one thing that we always do is talk shoes!

So thanks again!

One last thank you for helping this blog reach its goal of 60,000 views in one year, which by the way was last week! :)

For more foot info, you can always view my website or my podiatry blog. But for shoe info, don’t go anywhere! More is to be revealed…

YSL “Winning” vs. Christian Louboutin in the Case of the Red Soled Shoes!

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

This just in: Christian Louboutin‘s request for an injunction to stop sales of red-soled shoes made by Yves Saint Laurent has been denied by U.S. Federal judge, Judge Victor Marrero, who said that Louboutin wasn’t able to prove that its red soles deserve trademark protection.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the judge stated “Because in the fashion industry colour serves ornamental and aesthetic functions vital to robust competition, the court finds that Louboutin is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection.” 

With the injunction denied, it looks unlikely that Louboutin will win its case against YSL, since it too relies on the association of the red sole only with Louboutin.

Note: YSL claims that the YSL red- soled shoes in question have been selling since 2004.

So what do you think? Do you think you can trademark a color and prevent other designers from using it? Do you think Christian Louboutin should win? Or do you agree with the judge??? Inquiring minds want to know…
