There are shoes and then there are Shoez



Sometimes you're out and about and something catches your eye, not necessarily big or expensive or modish or fashionable and you say: "We have to have it".

That was yesterday. And we said it together.

There is something about these Converse-Type shoes. The ridiculous pink, the grey polka dots, but most of all the satin ribbons for laces.

There is a world of possibility in these magical shoes. As if one could fly over rooftops, skim over stages, bring the heels together and say: "Home now, adventures are over for another day."

She is hopelessly in love with them. As am I. So I had to take a picture before they got scuffed up.

  1. You both got a pair? I hope you did. They look like magical shoes and the kind I would buy too to get me over the rainbow. I suppose you walk a lot lighter in them.

  2. yup! me too!
    I remember our first French student, a painfully shy girl from Paris. Six feet tall and very big city but very shy about speaking English. There was one very important word she had to get across...
    "Converse All Stars"

    We found them, she bought six pairs for the friends back home.

  3. Now, darn it! I take a short break from you to build a fireplace and what happens? You have a birthday and buy silly shoes. And how did you end up in that great big house by the sea?
    I can't take my eyes off you for a minute, can I?
    Belated Happy Birthday.

    Alas and alack they only had one pair so Grandgirl wins, if she hadn't adored them too they would be on my feet.
    GM:

    I was going to troll over your way, sir, and order you to start typing vitriolically (sp?) about something.
    Our lovely houses have zapped our vitriols obviously!
    Thanks for the good wishes :-)

  7. They are brilliant shoes - and I am most emphatically *not* a shoe person!

  8. I wish I had the ability to take something like that and make it into a photo op and a blog post. Great.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
