Starring Roles

ShoeDazzle.com, where Kim Kardashian is a guest stylist, is welcoming another celebrity to its roster: Kristen Bell. The actress designed a limited-edition strappy sandal-boot in a nude color with a metallic insole, using faux leather. Bell named the shoe The Midge after one of her family members, and set out to focus on both comfort and style. The result is a look that can be worn for any occasion. The Midge can be purchased on the site for $40, starting Aug. 9, and all of the proceeds will go to The Art of Elysium, a non-profit that sponsors artistic workshops for critically ill children. The site’s next star designer is “The Hills” actress Kristin Cavallari.
RHYME TIME

Oh, the places Converse can go with its Dr. Seuss-inspired line for fall. The boldly colored Chuck Taylor All Star shoes feature famous rhymes and characters from the books, including the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2. The collection comprises laceups in adult and children’s sizes, and additional Velcro oxford styles for toddlers. The line retails from $35 to $60 and is available at Converse.com, Zappos.com and select Macy’s locations.

Tom Cruise & Cameron Diaz In London: How Is He So Tall? (PHOTOS)

July 24th, 2010

According to the Huffington Post, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz attended the premiere of “Knight and Day” in London on Thursday, and Cruise was almost as tall as Diaz, despite her 4-or-5 inch heels.

Cruise, 5’7, and Diaz, 5’9, posed for photos together and, while he is shorter, the difference was far less the 5 inches it theoretically should be, even with Diaz slightly slouching. Cruise’s boots appear to have a one-inch heel on the outside, but his knees are at about the same height as Diaz’s.

How’d he do it? Inside lifts? Scroll and decide.

More Nike Dunks than Dr. Scholl’s

July 13th, 2010

If you spent the 4th like we did, eating and drinking more than humanly possible, you might have a problem looking put together this week.

Height: LiftKits insoles
More Nike Dunks than Dr. Scholl’s, Lift Kits are sporty insoles that boost the Tom Cruise-sized up to a full two inches. The cushioned neoprene gel insoles also relieve pressure on the spine, forcing your back to stand up straighter, adding extra (natural) height.
$20-40 at MyLiftKits.com

Weight: Spanx Undershirts
Spanx — those spandex sausage casings that girls use to smooth out and slip into into bridesmaid dresses — are now available for men. Compression T-shirt, V-neck, and tank top styles sculpt your gut, make your pecs pop, and are invisible under clothes.
$55-58 at spanx.com

Girth: Equmen Precision Underwear
Equmen makes briefs and trunks that lift and streamline your junk, giving a Wonderbra-like effect in the pants. Moisture-wicking mesh fabric and anti-microbial properties keep your team dry and chipper.

LiftKits for Chicks Fitness Insoles are an alternative to expensive fitness shoes.

Curious about Fitness shoes but dont want to give up your own style?

July 12th, 2010

More about LiftKits for Chicks

In 2009, DRM Marketing created LiftKits for Chicks, as a direct result of the overwhelming response from women regarding our Men’s insoles from designer and founder Derek White. To our surprise, women were wearing our Men’s insoles as a “secret heel,” and begging for us to offer a proper Women’s line. Their feedback? The insoles were providing their legs with the toned appearance of wearing high heels, defining the muscles in their calves and glutes, and offering some of that “heel height” back. All while they were wearing their own boot and shoes! Moreover, wearing our insoles for longer periods of time continued to tone these muscles and provided stability in the back and improved posture. At the same time, the craze over fitness shoes had reached boiling point, and LiftKits for Chicks were born.
