John Travolta’s shoes in “Saturday Night Fever” tell a story. Travolta’s strut is smooth, driven and cocky. His stride synchronizes perfectly with the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive.” Used in one of the earliest cross-marketing campaigns, those few moments of wordless cool shot Travolta and the Bee Gees to heady fame.

If you’re like me, you have story shoes of your own. You might even direct the story of your day through your shoes. Strap on those power-walk, sleek-heeled Kara boots and you might find your day unfolding like a corporate thriller.
What a difference a pair of shoes can make. Feel punky and fed up with the world? Instead of perfecting the perpetual sneer, you can express yourself through a pair of lace-up Biviel B1627s, shown at right.
