    As interesting and fun as the Shoe Wheel looks, I think it looks like a Footwear Penitentiary. The cells are small and cramped. What kind of life do the shoes lead in this environment? Are the shoes allowed to take air for an hour each day in the Shoe Penitentiary Exercise Yard? Or is their only time out of their cells when they are pressed into service on the wearer’s feet? What of the unfavored shoes that are reapeatedly not chosen for wear? Do they lead a life of Solitary Confinement? Do they get time off for good behavior? The only consolation I see for the shoes is that they can talk to each other through the bars.

    I prefer to let my shoes roam free in my closet, at liberty to do whatever they like. I trust them not to become too wild, and they repay me with good behavior. If they do get out of line, I can always re-box them!

    so many apologies, Manolo… of course you knew all about the shoe and its wheel. and what you are thinking about it, so true. i was foolish to doubt you.

    Um… my shoes would never fit in that wheel. Perhaps if I had many pairs of identical, pointy shoes with the same height heels… but why would anyone have 15 pairs of identically-shaped shoes?

    I’d need to have at least 3 of the shoe wheels, which would take up a lot of space. I think I like my racks better.

    I just found out recently that Pucci made the smiles at 30,000 feet!

    Alina, it says “the pockets are easily adjustable to fit a variety of shoes – sneakers, high heels, and flats.” I think it looks pretty cool but, like nanflan, I’d need at least three of them to hold my entire shoe collection.

    Hmmm. . . a Wheel of Shoe Fortune. This could be dangerous. I would spend every waking hour spinning my shoes, neatly arranged in ROYGBIV order, while the Carmina Burana played in the background.

    But perhaps I have said too much.

    Bah. That shoe wheel thingy is cool. Right now I have all my shoes on this weird built in shelf thing that was a cut in for a radiator that used to be in the hallway. They are always looking at me when I come in my closet.
