Yellow Shoes

Neosens


J Shoes

Irregular Choice
OK, so the last pair aren't yellow!

The Girl does not understand my attraction to "ugly shoes".

"Ugly" includes: bright colours / clumpy soles / brogueing / patterns and prints...

Why, she wonders, would a grown woman choose to wear Cornish Pasties on her feet, when there are Jeffrey Campbell Lita shoes in the world?

I don't have an answer... except... damn I love those ugly brown boots!

I have a pair of yellow brogues that I love very much. And I am actually going to wear white brogues at a wedding next month. I love brogues - so many shoes I cannot wear but I *can* wear those, yay!

Those Lita shoes will forever and ever and ever remind me of those special orthopedic shoes for people who have legs of unequal length.

You may tell the girl that.

I'd take your choice over the girl's, but my daughter and I don't always have the same taste in shoes either. I am mainly a DM's girl. I only really like a certain kind of non clumpy footwear and it generally doesn't exsist, but then I discovered Freya by Hush puppies!!

springy day here in Toronto and am wearing yellow VANS; yeah, well, so what if I'm 64! lol

The older I get, the more I start checking out what my 90-year-old friends are wearing on their feet ... and envying them. Tell The Girl that part of the charm of getting old is that your eyesight deteriorates, so what she sees as "ugly" you are lucky to see as "shoe."

The boots are nice, but those soles.........my daughter would be walking 10 paces behind, pretending she doesn't know me too. ;o)

that top pair look amazing!

Pam said...

I *love* those ugly brown boots! And think the Lita shoes are hideous. But then I'm old!

As Caitlin Moran says "there are only four things a grown, modern woman should have: a pair of yellow shoes (they unexpectedly go with everything) ..."

Big, clumpy boots all the way!!

Have to say the first pair of yellow shoes do it for me. Personally I can't abide anything remotely flat and sensible as they remind me of school shoes.

Lynne said...

The first shoes are gorgeous!! I want them now! But sadly I have little feet, and they don't come in my size. I say buy them - The Girl can think what she likes!! ;)

Those yellow brogues are to.die.for. I'm also in love with the yellow suede heels that Clarkes are doing this season. Working out a reason to buy them as at the moment I've nothing to wear them with. Perhaps it would kickstart me to making something appropriate?

The top shoes. Fantasy.

My daughter calls all of my shoes "crunchy granola" shoes because I like earthy shoes with clumpy soles.
