Alicia + Olivia Larimore Cutout Platform for the Monday

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back at your desk, suffering from the Olympic hangover.

Originally, you had the big plans for the weekend — go to the market of the farmers, ride your bike in the park, do the laundry– but then, on the Friday night, you started watching the opening ceremony, and you were hooked. The next thing you know, you were avidly watching skeet shooting. (Oh, that Kim Rhode!)

By Sunday night it was clear that the Olympic marathon did not refer to the footrace, but to your concentrated television viewing. Indeed, you had barely turned off the tube of the boobs, sitting there in your comfortable chair in your Olympic sweat pants, the Olympic-sized bowl of snacks in one hand, the tiny American flag in the other. (How you cheered yourself hoarse at the preliminary round of the men’s beach volleyball.)

This morning, when you roused yourself from your Olympic stupor, dragged yourself into the kitchen and caught up on the overnight Olympic news. Even now, in the background of your web browser, you have open several pages of Olympic news and results, and are furiously typing the angry comment to some nitwit who thinks that the American women’s heavy 8 rowing team will not triumph.

The Manolo suggests you take the little break and look at some gold medal shoes…

    Those are some ugly, overwrought shoes.




  2. The formerly shoe-obsessed Wayne Says:

    Loving the heel, platform and the ornamentation! Don’t know where you’d wear them, though…A wonderful objet d’art.




  3. Shoeniverse Says:

    I adore these, fierce!




  4. teresa Says:

    They are truly superfantastic!




  5. Victor Says:

    I think these are simply fantastic, rather than superfantastic, and the problem is the platform. I realize the current fashion is towering-inferno height heels with platforms that make wearing such a heel merely precarious rather than death-defying, but the platform on this shoe makes the cutout pattern (which I rather like) overwhelming instead of allowing it to ornament the shoe.

    I feel this shoe would be beyond superfantastic and into the realm of Absolutely Fabulous should Alicia + Olivia remove the platform and lower the heel.




  6. Dana Says:

    I agree, although this would be very nice for tiny little gymnast-height people. I watched a former gymnast-turned-sportscaster and she wore some of the highest platforms I have ever seen, and of course had the balance to wear them with aplomb.
