• We’re a magazine, yes—a collection of bound, printed matter pocked with words. But even we, at times, are at a loss for the very things that sustain our being: words. With that in mind, meet the eighteen-hour heels that are empowering women everywhere

Much like flamingos, humans like to be together and demonstrate solidarity. As women, it is important that we stand together in empowering each other, and so, every purchase of “Shoes by Shaherazad” heels directly supports the wellbeing of a woman or girl living in poverty through the “Solidarity by Shaherazad” programme.

Made in England, my heels are hand crafted, followed by a machine kiss and layer of unique brand innovation.

Oy vey. Mourn with us for the future of humanity. Do it in solidarity.

• No, but really, why are people obsessed with Friends?

• Hillary Clinton’s comments about Trump’s “basket of deplorables” may have been explained to death, but David Rees has managed to grace us with a new take. Behold, WHOLE GOONS.

• In Charlottesville for Human/Ties? On September 15, join editor-in-chief Chris Lehmann and a gaggle of like-minded magazine editors for a discussion of the golden era of small magazines. Come one, come all to the Watson Manor at 3 p.m.!
