Exclamation

I like the ones Walt Frazier used to wear to discos. They had hollow transparent heels that he filled with water and goldfish!! I am not making this up.

Here's a picture of a modern version:

Really? You're not making this up? How do you know HE filled the heels with water and goldfish?

What's "hot" isn't significant at all, is it? You want shoes that fit well, support your feet and ankles adequately, are lightweight and don't have any color or decoration. In fact, I'd prefer shoes that would be cooler.

Depends. They probably provide them in the federal penitentiary/catered day camp for celebrities.

Did anyone see Paris Hilton's interview on Letterman last Friday night? If not, you can find it on youtube. It was pretty hilarious.

I don't want to know about the food dispenser, but it wouldn't be cool to disco with a couple of floaters.
