This one, for the example, it is urbane and sophisticated, but the brassy D&G hardwears, they make the shoe more assertive and edgy than the understated material and classic line would normally justify.

This shoe it has contrasting rich brown leathers and the loafer-ish details of the kiltie and the chain all wedded incongruously to the pointy toe and stilleto heel. There is the sort of sophisticated visual wit here that gives the Manolo much pleasure.


The Gallery of the Horrors: The Sweat

Manolo says, the Manolo he has finally added the new horror to the Gallery of the Horrors, the Sweat from the Steve Madden.

Manolo says, here you see one of the more lamentable fashion statements of this the new millenium, the Steve Madden’s “Sweat”.

Yes, it is named, the Sweat. Most descriptive, no?

Does the name and the shoe not conjure up the mental image of the three-hundred pound man-child, shuffling down the street in the filthy pajamas, clutching at the half masticated piece of the pizza?

Yet, what is most unaccountable is that this shoe it is intended as the stylish casual shoe for the young womens, and indeed the Manolo he has on more than one of the occasions seen this shoe on the foot of the otherwise sane seeming person. Why? Why would someone wear the shoe that looks like the slipper that belongs on the foot of the mental patient?

Why? Why? Why?
