If I have one fetish about shoes, it's bows. Bows on the back, the sides, the front or tied around the ankles. I've just been looking at 1970s shoes, no bows just horrible clunks and I lived through that era so I went looking for something to soothe the blistered eyes. Herewith....
These just made my eyes water. They must be kidding, no-one could possibly walk with these on. I mean there's nothing to keep the feet in the shoes for a start except maybe glue. As for walking, how about little tiny wheels or ball bearings hidden in the heel and the sole and one just glides along.
This was better, it has a bow and it's Valentino and I love the colour and I have absolutely no idea how you get the things on the feet and up the legs. There might be a zip on the inside but I can't see dear Valentino wrecking the look of his fancy boot with a zip. It must be very soft leather and just a pull up does the trick. Unfortunately with my funny fat legs, I'd have to use a bullock hide for each leg so there goes another fashion dream.
Well, ladies, it all comes down to this. Peacock painted Converse sneakers, they look divine, we couldn't possibly fall off them and since they come in man size, they'll fit. I could always stick a little sparkly peacock jewell or three on the canvas and you know where the bow part comes in. I wonder if they make gold laces?
