Shoe Memoires

This post is about some of the shoes I owned in the past, many many moons ago. It includes the details about the places I wore them and other stuff I can remember. I guess these were my all-time favorites because they made quite an impression in the 1970s and 1980s

Checkered Mary Jane ballet flats in fabric. In blue, from Italy: without the bow. Easily ruined in a water feature at the amusement park.

White clogs. Best worn with white, knee high socks. and a tartan mini-skirt (photo via)

Designer Clogs: Woody, designed by Jan Jansen, only available at The Bijenkorf, which use to be a posh department store. In black, way more mainstream, ’cause that’s the kind of girl I was. (photo via)

Roots, Natural footwear for the city. Perfect for a brisk walk. And very hip in those days, way back when. ‘Cause that’s also the kind of girl I was .
My first high heels, espadrilles bought at the local department store. Perfect for the first day at High School. I was the only one wearing heels and I loved it!

Sneakers, adidas rip-offs, from the local Bata store, in a darker blue with red stripes and a blue sole. Smelly feet are the words that come to mind reminiscing these shoes.
capezioTap shoes, by Capezio, made in the USA, style 650. With and without the taps, perfect for everyday, and in red for a visit to the New York discotheques. (photo via)

My First Nikes. From the late seventies, in white Nylon, a red swoosh and white/blue soles, they were the Nike Cortez. Farrah Fawcett had them as well. Iconic! (photo via)
