Pain is Beauty: Shoeicide

We all love rapper Fabolous' reference to the pain that women go through to have a mean shoe game.  He calls it "Shoeicide" and describes a "killer shoe game as a pair of homis" (as in homicide).  I personally believe that shoes can make or break an outfit and are probably the most important accessory a woman can wear.  Shoes have stepped out in the forefront and taken the spotlight of most women's wardrobes.  It seems that fashionistas are always on the hunt for that KILLER SHOE.

The sad part is, the hotter the shoe, the more it kills your feet, but us women are used to enduring pain in the name of beauty.  My mother always told me to be sure to wear the proper size and to take good care of my feet (no bunions here *wink*), but I am constantly questioning the level of pain I am willing to endur to keep my shoe game tight.  Heels affect our posture and our ability to walk properly, so its important to seek comfort and style.  With that being said, lets check out some killer styles that women are rocking right now:
