The Sole9 collection includes $110 leather Warrior flats in five colors that have heart-shaped studs and "power" words such as peace, goodness and fearless on the insole.

Daytime Emmy Award-winning actress Gina Tognoni will be in Lexington for a trunk show of her line Sole9 Footwear.

The former cast member of Guiding Light (on which she played Dinah) and One Life to Live (where she portrayed Kelly) will be at Tribeca Trunk, 116 Old Lafayette Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. Tognoni, whose mother is a long-time resident of Lexington, will show resort styles from her collection.
