from the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Orlando
I spend a lot of time in convention centers. I, and my sister medical reporters, also spend considerable time and energy on finding shoes that are both comfortable and still professional-looking. You men out there have NO IDEA how hard this is.
So, we are always amazed by the choice of footwear of some of the female attendees at medical meetings in large convention centers. I have special ASCO shoes. Actually, I have two pairs. ASCO shoes v 2.o are butter soft leather with great cushioning and I STILL had to fall back on ASCO shoes v 1.0 because I got blisters from all of the walking on the first day.
My fellow EGMN reporters—Patrice Wendling and Jane MacNeil—and I had many laughs over the incredible shoes that we saw at ASCO this year. Gorgeous and high-heeled? Yes, more than you’d think. Weird? Yes, there were some of those too. Practical and flat? Yes, lots of those.
Here’s a shot of some that I saw today (below). All I could think was: Lady! What are you thinking when you choose shoes like these, in which to cover all of that ground at ASCO?!
Want to see my shoes? Here’s ASCO shoes v 1.0—some seriously sensible shoes.
OK, guys. I’m done talking about shoes. You can start paying attention to the blog again.
