Departures.Com- True Confessions of a Foot Doctor

It was a bright, sunny Friday morning.

Suzanne Levine, D.P.M., in her white lab coat, half-eyes pushed up high onto her expensively highlighted locks, looks down at what I had always considered quite nice feet. “Oh my god!” she says, backing away from me like she might from a burning house. “Those feet do not belong to you!”

Refinery29 - Meet the Woman who Invented the Loub Job

Suzanne Levine, DPM, is, to put it mildly, obsessed with footwear.
