This Just In: High Heel Wearers More Likely to Get Mugged

We’ve come across many a disturbing fashion trend in our day, but this one certainly outranks many of them: high heels and shopping bags may make you more attractive to muggers. Last week, the Los Angeles Police Department reportedly announced that the flagging economy has coincided with an increase in robberies, and women wearing heels have been frequent targets for purse snatchers and petty thieves. And while sprinting in stilettos seems to work just fine on the silver screen, we wouldn’t recommend that kind of action for San Francisco’s hilly streets.

If the news reminds you that you need a new pair of flats, it may be time to hotfoot it over to London Sole. While wearing the appropriate footwear, of course. An added incentive? The Maiden Lane store's current winter sale features plenty of pairs priced at $60.
