Now I'm going to spend the afternoon shopping for cute shoes online. Damn you, mefi!

Wow. This looks like the Flickr pool of a foot fetishist.

I think I may have been on the internet too long.

Only babies, nurses and strippers should ever wear white shoes. Everyone else is forbidden.

Shoe fetishist, fiercecupcake! A subtle but important distinction.

As the blog goes, this reminds me of one of those clips they used to do on Mr. Rogers or Sesame Street. You know, the ones where a kid would talk about their life - or in this case, the shoes talking about their life and friends? The photos are fun and kind of give the shoes their own little lives and personality. Very cute.

The buckled bronze shoes on day 30 are swoon-worthy. And the upstaging ruffled shoes on day 18 as well! Can we get a side project about the cute tights?

Kelly is one of a whole flock of characters created by Liam Kyle Sullivan. He's pretty well known in some circles of fans of internet videos. He's made a pretty lucrative career for himself with his work, including recording an entire album or two, and even won a few awards.

Sorry, but flip-flops are NOT shoes.

Can I tell my story here of when I stopped at the thrift store on my way home from work last week and found a perfectly awesome pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenues in just my size for $6.99? My friends and coworkers are starting to get tired of hearing it after only a couple dozen tellings.

Also, my daily wanderings often take me past this store, where they always have a few pair of gorgeous women's shoes in the window. It makes me envious of women because they have so many more footwear options than men do. My female friends and coworkers got tired of hearing that the first time I mentioned it.

monospace: "Sorry, but flip-flops are NOT shoes."

Gas stations and fast food places seem to think so!

And these aren't really flip-flops. But they sure are groovy in a very strange way.

I bought a pair at a wine festival in southern NM about a decade ago (same concept, different brand), and wore them daily for nearly 10 weeks before the adhesive finally quit working. It was like being barefoot without ever hurting my feet on rocks or hot pavement.

I can't lie. My first reaction to things like this is typically well deserved socioeconomic and traditional expletives directed at the author, for all sorts of valid reasons. But I also love shit like this, and these are some of the cutest manufactured things to grace the planet. Not one, but two different sized little pink pin cushion buttons adorning each no-roast-beef piggy and pinky toes. Okay fine, you win this time, buttons, but I'll be back.

Drool. Want all those shoes. (Also, how come all the shoes look so gorgeous despite age? Airbrushing? Cosmetic shoe surgery?)

He's also hot like a fucking hot thing.

Ahem! Allow me to answer that. I didn't retouch the shoes at all - that was a cardinal rule. The whole point was to show the shoes in their current condition - dilapidated or otherwise. I did use big soft lights to shoot them, which is flattering and gives a nice 3D-ness. But moreover, they're just nice shoes!

No, they're not, but without counting flip-flops and slippers I only have 51 pairs, and 55 just sounds better.

Gosh, I wish I'd read that yesterday!
