Is this the latest reference to heels on shoes?  

Sally Combs just used it and now the Vince Camuto rep just said it.  "You have a lot of real estate here."

@Equuleus  Yep. It may be the new lingo for amount of surface of the heel that is on the ground to keep you from falling on your bu*t. Anyway, for me I need full sole real estate. No heels...maybe low wedges...for me. Still a stupid term, though.

I've also used a version of that term when bemoaning my feet.  I have a very high arch and I've always complained that I don't have enough "real estate" to balance properly during my exercise classes!

Off-topic, but you reminded me.  I saw a Birkenstock presentation on HSN recently and the manufacturer rep was female and blonde but was no Sally Combs.  Sally was perfect for the Birky brand.
