It’s less than a week to Christmas. Those folks who still haven’t done their shopping are starting to panic.
This morning seven year-old Ethan said to his Mom, “No thanks I don’t want anything from this store. It’s Chanukah tonight.”
The first time I’ve heard a kid say, “No thanks!”
About six weeks ago at the end of a post on women’s shoes, I put out a call for guys to come to my cash register and show me their shoes.
I met Matt at the coffee cart.
“Those aren’t shoes,” I said, “It looks as though you’re walking about in “yoga” socks,”
He smiled and lifted his pant to show the shoe (in the photo above).
They don’t look very comfortable to me.
There were a few men in bright neon shoes at the end of the summer, but I haven’t seen many recently.
Heldrich didn’t know the make of his shoes.
“My girlfriend bought them for me,” he said.
APC “Double Monk strap” shoes Jeremy bought in Paris this year, worn with J. Crew socks
Talking of socks, while men’s shoes may be plain, I discovered the all important finishing detail is in the socks
If you don’t know APC, it’s a French clothing store with a branch in Beverly Hills
What about women?
They are wearing everything on their feet, from running shoes to very high heels, to flip-flops, but most of them are wearing boots, beautiful leather boots, ankle height to above the knee. Stay tuned…
Patty made sure I noticed the red sole under the shoe, “Because it’s a sign of a genuine Christian Louboutin shoe.”
I think she said she paid about $850 for these shoes.
They are beautiful, but I would never pay so much for shoes.
