For the Love of Shoes

Kick your own shoes off and look at these ones instead. You can get your shit together on Sunday.


When Dorothy clicked her red-glittered heels together while repeating, “There’s no place like home,” it’s quite possible that she was talking about your home, circa right now, because ten bucks says you’re snuggled up in bed or positioned on the couch with no plans whatsoever to move for the rest of the day. That certainly must beat Oz.

It may have also been her strange way of getting the lion to compliment her shoes or trick the scarecrow into asking who makes them.

I love Dorothy, but she’s sort of trying too hard to get street-styled, no? Those puffy sleeves, the ankle socks, the blatant photographer bait using her adorable dog Toto — we all know it’s physically impossible to not take a picture of a terrier in a wicker basket. But those glittery shoes are good, man.

And so is your bed — so stay there, tell Dorothy to move over in case she has magically clicked her way next to you, and sift through the slideshow above featuring delightful shoes that will take you exactly where you want to go.

And now for some atmosphere music. Do you and Dorothy want the fast-paced version? (Perfect for needing a pick-me-up, a little energy, like coffee for your ears…)

Or, do you need the more mellow version, like an Advil for your pounding brain? Choose your own adventure!

    <3 the 60's lace up shoes 😉

  • Those platform, printed Mary Jane heels from Miu Miu spring 2010 will haunt me forever. I love them so god damn much. Every once and a while I do an eBay search for a pair that I may buy for my future, although I rarely have luck. I am determined to get a pair in this lifetime. Please.

    Oz might do it for Dorothy, but ‘there is no place like a shoe store’.

  • this has to be the absolute best mix of shoes and music that will ever happen! going through the pictures while playing the songs did something to me I can’t explain. or maybe elated is the word. i just don’t know but i love it!
