  • Love the red boots! I have always had at least one pair of red shoes in my wardrobe since I was sixteen…. many years ago. Today I have four or five pairs with my favorite being a pair bought in Paris in 2005…. red paisley sling backs with small heel! Love the red……Stacy

    Flat shoes. Black shoes. Thump along like THAT shoes. Wipe them on the mat shoes. That’s the sort THEY buy.
    But button shoes and bow shoes, Pretty pointy toe shoes, Snappy, cappy low shoes. THAT’S the sort I’D buy.
    I’m with Stacey on the red shoes. Love ’em.
