Stilettos can be an effective weapon, either the small thin knife to slay an attacker, or the super sexy high heels which can slay Prince Charming.  The love/hate relationship women have with their high heels is the subject of Dr. Emily Splichal‘s business.  “Dr. Legs” as she is known kicked up her heels in the Hamptons with her successful #1 fitness dvd’s Catwalk Confidence and Stiletto Recovery.  Dr. Splichal hosted the very first Catwalk Confidence & Dasha Wellness Hamptons Fitness & Wellness Soiree to benefit Soles4Souls. The fitness and wellness event, held on August 13, 2011, was hosted by PIX 11’s Dr. Steve Salvatore.

Major highlights of the day included Dr. Emily Splichal and Dr. Steve’s speech which focused on overall health and wellness, while inspiring others. Dr. Emily gave a heart-felt speech as to why she chose Soles4Souls as the benefactor. Other highlights included the Ask The Doctors panel sponsored by Aetrex. The Ask The Doctors panel was an open forum for all of your health questions led by Dr. Daren Pollack (Chiropractor), Dr. Emily Splichal (Podiatrist), Dr. Steve Salvatore (Emergency Physician) and Dr. Ancy Verdier (Periodontist).  Last but not least, Dr. Emily Splichal transformed into her infamous Dr. Legs alias and featured copies of her new book “Everyday Is Your Runway” as well as pre-signed copies for guest. Dr. Legs then ended the event with a very fun runway showdown with stiletto lovers from her Catwalk Confidence dvd.

Flip flops beware – your days are numbered.
