Helena Christensen for Reebok

Sneakers. Tennis Shoes. Cross Trainers. Whatever you call them, I don’t wear them. It’s probably a personal issue, but at a towering 5’5 sneakers have a way of making me feel short. They are wide, clunky–looking, and have an innate ability to shorten my legs. I’m paranoid, I know.

None the less, apparently supermodel Helena Christensen disagrees with me. She’s so confident in her Reebok trainers, she wears them naked. "With my busy schedule it's a perfect way to do something without spending hours in the gym," explained Helena in her recent VogueUK interview.

Something tells me it’s not the shoes that are toning her legs, it’s Photoshop.
