Summer represents another opportunity for a clean slate and a fresh start- especially when it comes getting your skin and body sun-kissed ready. There are always an over abundance of products on the market to invest in perfecting your overall aesthetic.

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!”
Excuse me, I thought.Read More
Sky-high mules in jeweled, suede and metallic varieties marched down the spring 2012 runway recently, leading a New York Times blogger to become self-conscious about her ballet-beaten feet. Consequently, writer Chelsea Zalopany visited some of the Big Apple's most luxurious spas seeking treatment for her busted heels.

I was run over by a woman one year! But, it’s worth it.”
It would be easy to assume that Dr. Levine has something of a vanity complex when it comes to footwear. However, you’d be (mostly) mistaken: She is the premier podiatrist in New York City, if not the entire country. Good shoes, then, are not just her passion — they’re her business.
In 2014, Dr. Suzanne Levine, celebrity podiatrist to the stars, and her husband, Dr. Everett Lautin took a trip to Cambodia. What she encountered was a far different world from her beautiful office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City. During her trip, she visited an orphanage and was struck by the fact that none of the children were wearing shoes.Read More
