Red didn't do too bad herself. She was able to find a few pairs she liked, and a few pairs I liked so much that I bought for her. (BTW gentlemen, if you are ever looking for a guaranteed score - take your significant other shoe shopping and offer to buy her an extra pair. Makes flowers look like some weak rookie shit.)
Since Red bought 4 pair and I bought 3, it is time for us to give you a little fashion show. Behold the coolness, and pretend like you're interested.
EG #1 - My pre-washed olive and natural Converse. These are unique as they are All Stars, but not Chuck Taylor's. They also have metal aglets on the laces and contoured soles.
EG #2 Special edition Jack Purcell Converse. These are designed as slip-ons with false eyelets. The bottom part of the tongue is sewn in and the top has elastic on the sides. The soles are also black and tan with special edition logo crap on them.
EG #3. Red and blue plaid Jack Purcell's. These were a must. They are a brief summary of my personality in shoe form. They are also special editions, but have the traditional Jack's bottoms.
Red #1. Zip front Keds. Adding a little panache to casual Fridays.
Red #2 - Bronze ballet flat/yoga shoe hybrids displayed in third position. An excellent alternative to her otherwise ubiquitous Mary Jane's. Click to zoom in and check out the ostrich skin texture (please excuse my lack of vacuuming.)
Red #3 - Super cute tres femme abbreviated Nike sneakers in navy with a tiny lime green swoosh.
Red #4 - The coup de grace and possibly the coolest shoes in the known universe - silver glitter disco ball Chuck Taylor low tops. (The sexy eye patch is not just a fun accessory, but also helps Red in her recovery from some MS induced double vision. The Elvis tee was once mine, but has long since been hijacked by the Scarlet Pirate.)
Her jeans are hitched up a bit to show them off in the pic below. Please be advised that these shoes are kept in a safe deposit box which requires two keys to open, of which Red and I each wear one around our necks on unbreakable metal cords. (I'm looking at you Cardiogirl!)
Thus concludes our Memorial Day shoe shopping post. We also went to see Star Trek, which Red plans to do a review on shortly (but almost assuredly not concisely.)
