Manolo the Columnist: Air Talia Open-Toe Slingback From Cole Haan

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

I work in a congressional office on Capitol Hill, and I would like to know what shoes are work appropriate in the spring and summer. I love wedge sandals, but I always feel uncertain about wearing them to work. How about those gladiator style sandals? Any help is appreciated.

Manolo says, from the casual observation of the C-Span, Internet gossip, and the police blotters, it is possible to say that the average congress being is the highly-strung, go-go-go, narcissistic, type-A lunatic with the poor impulse control and the outrageous demands.

“Ms. Smith, can you pick up my cleaning, notify the press that I’m available for comment, walk my dog, clean my gutters, and mark up that new interstate trucking bill? Oh, and when you’re done, I need you to come in here and pumice the calluses off of my feet. Chop, chop.”

Thus, the Manolo would recommend taking measures to avoid doing anything that might “angry up the blood” of the Congressmen and the Congressladies. Also, because professional appearance is to be highly valued in such situations, the bit of the peeping toes is probably about as far one would wish to go with the displays of feet skin.

It is best to save the stylish and sexy sandals for the after hours partying down.

Here is the Cole Haan Air Talia Open Toe Slingback in the palomino patent, the conservative, comfortable, and professional choice of congressional aides everywhere.

    You read the Shiela Jackson Lee story, too?




  2. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    Yes. The Manolo was appalled.




  3. Meredith Says:

    Thanks mucho!




  4. The gold digger Says:

    Shiela? Sheila? I have lost the ability to spell. And me, a literacy volunteer.




  5. Miss Janey Says:

    Love these shoes. Miss Janey can attest to the comfort of the Cole Haan Air pumps. And to the over-developed sense of The Gimme the peeps of the Capitol exude. A dear friend of Miss J’s husband used to be the right hand woman to s certain late Senator. She left when she married so she could have a life of her own.
