Weird and Wacky Andre Perugia – Strange shoes

We’ve not had any strange shoes for quite a while – so here’s  some new ones I found recently.  Incidently I had half an inch taken off some heels of mine recently.  It may be only half an inch, but they difference this makes to actually being able to walk in these shoes is amazing:) French shoeContinue reading “Weird and Wacky Andre Perugia – Strange shoes”

Weird and wacky design: Walk a mile in these shoes?

I’ve not put any ‘Weird and Wacky designs’ on here for a while – so I shall address that now.  I love strange shoes, though it takes me all my time to wear high heels these days (though I just will not be told and do try to persevere).  I rather like these shoes. I like theContinue reading “Weird and wacky design: Walk a mile in these shoes?”

Weird and Whacky Designs: Walk a Mile in my Shoes (if you dare)

More strange and unexepected  shoes!  How do they keep on coming up with them? They get weirder and whackier…. What’s puzzling me about the above shoes is do your toes fit into the shoe toes or do they stop short?  So, do you have to get a size bigger than your actual feet? These shoes areContinue reading “Weird and Whacky Designs: Walk a Mile in my Shoes (if you dare)”

SomeContinue reading “Honestly! Really Really!”

A rather unusual  pair of surreal  heeled elevators are these.  Those heels are mind boggling!  I wonder whatContinue reading “Still Tottering on the Wild Side”

The Patter of Tiny Feet in Pattens Take a Walk on the Wild Side

What are pattens?  And why aren’t they around now?  Well I suppose they are still around but in a different incarnation.  They’re called platforms!  pattens have a long history (see here) Pattens were made of wood or leather and sometimes very high 8 to 10 inches.  The idea was to elevate the dainty or flimsily made shoeContinue reading “The Patter of Tiny Feet in Pattens Take a Walk on the Wild Side”

Altered art book: page 11 Walk a life in my shoes

The words I picked out were; – ‘They walked through their childhood’ The idea of walking through childhood is of course associated with memories: nostalgia for what has been.  My immediate thought was childhood toys, until the shoes hit me that is.  How many pairs of shoes do we go through in life I wonder? Continue reading “Altered art book: page 11 Walk a life in my shoes”
