It was the 1990’s. Nike had shoes. I bought a pair at the Honolulu Costco, the one Imelda Marcos sends her people to, even these days, AFAIK. Anyway, now the same exact shoe is being sold as new as a part of Nike’s retro line:
Man, I’m old.
Four Yelp Stars never lie.
Or are these platform heels? (One supposes that’s a subcategory of high heel, but one doesn’t know for sure)
– The #1 occupation for those with a foot fetish is … shoe salesman, just saying.
– I talked with a shoe salesman in Union Square one time. He side his “primary job” as a salesperson was to determine if the customer wanted to buy some new kicks TODAY. “Women will go shoe shopping to kill time, while waiting for a bus.” OTOH, if you told him that you were a serious shopper, he’d “have all the time in the world for you.” That’s life on commish, I s’pose.
A great capture from Erin Sherbert:
Cf. Conversations with Tom Wolfe by Dorothy McInnis Scura:
“Q. First I must ask you: why do you affect those crazy white suits?
A. In 1962, I was in a tailor shop and had a conventional summer suit made from some white silk tweed that impressed me. But the suit was too hot for the summer. Then I began wearing it in December. People became annoyed by the sight of a white suit in winter. (Those were innocent times in 1962.) Soon I discovered I had this marvelous, harmless form of aggression going for me. So I branched out into white suits with double-vested weskits and rows of white-covered buttons. Getting dressed in the morning was suddenly fun.”
This was the promise, seven long years ago:
