According for the Globe and Mail, American designer Brian Atwood is getting the shoe world by storm, and everyone wants a pair of his flashy, enjoyable high heels. He began designing in 2001 and at present counts celebrities for example Kate Hudson, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow among his fans.
Brian’s shoes are anything but boring, with reflective surfaces, jewelled embellishments and rows of gold studs. He also likes to name his designs after pop culture icons, such as Lady Gaga and Dorota, Leighton Meester’s hilarious and loyal maid on Gossip Girl.
How have his designs evolved over the years? “The heels are higher,” he says. “A four-inch heel then was like a six-inch now.” He says it is due to the fact “We’ve gotten used to it…everyone is doing it and people want that silhouette.” Brian does flats as well, but he claims that shops won’t acquire them because clients want heels.
Inside the year, Brian plans to open a retail store and an online store. He’s also working on a fragrance and may possibly venture into clothing. As for men’s shoes, Brian says, “Who knows – eventually!”
The Eagles released ex – running back and longtime Giants killer Brian Westbrook Tuesday.
Just a day after the Chargers released their ex – franchise running back LaDainian Tomlinson, Westbrook took over as second big-name 30-or-older running returning to launch.
The move is not surprising considering Westbrook, 31, was scheduled to produce $7.25 million next season. He was coming off a concussion-marred year in which he missed eight games after suffering two concussions.
Westbrook suffered the very first concussion on Oct. 26 against Washington when he was hit in the head by linebacker London Fletcher’s knee.
He missed three games after that but suffered another concussion and didn’t return before last two games with the regular season.

“Brian is from the greatest Eagles of all time and he’s even a greater person and leader,” Eagles head coach Andy Reid said in the statement. “In my mind, there has not been a more versatile running back that the NFL has seen.
“I had a conversation with Brian this morning to let him know. This is by far the most difficult part of this job. We wanted in making this move now in order to maximize Brian’s chances of landing with another NFL team.”
