Kristin Cavallari Talks Heels vs. Flats, Living in Nashville and More

For Footwear News’ July 10 issue, we interviewed Chinese Laundry brand ambassador Kristin Cavallari on-set in Culver City, Calif., about shoes, food and more. Five years into designing such shoes as flats, sandals and mules with the West Coast-based women’s shoe company, Cavallari has become a somewhat of a footwear industry maven. Most recently, she has also hosted red carpet shows for E! Entertainment, and she’s been working on a cookbook, “True Roots,” which will release in the spring of 2018. With her “Laguna Beach” and “Hills” days with Lauren Conrad far behind her, the 30-year-old mother of three talked candidly with FN about her shoe preferences, biggest footwear splurges and answered the most existential question of all — cookies or cupcakes? Check out the video above.
