Galveston, Oh Galveston

Manolo says, Huzzah! The Manolo the Shoeblogger he has been quoted in the Galveston County Daily News. Finally, the influence of the Manolo is being felt in the heartland!

As the end of summer approaches, the question looms: Can you wear white shoes after Labor Day?

This question raises as much passionate debate as politics and religion — especially among Southern women.

The traditional rule says you put away your white shoes on Labor Day and don’t take them out until Easter.


There are dissenters.

“Fashion rules were made to be broken,” said Patricia McCune, who tracks trends for J.C. Penney Co. “Actually, the way that fashion is going now, the big thing is for everyone to express their individuality. So I say whatever expresses your individuality, go for it.”

Last year, Manolo’s Shoe Blog ( offered the same advice.

“The correct rule is always appropriateness,” Manolo wrote. “It is indeed not appropriate to wear the flip flops to meet the Mr. President. However, it is most appropriate to wear the super fantastic white shoes anytime the weather it is clement.”

It is that time of the year again, time for the annual arguement about the wearing of the white shoes after the Day of Labor.

Soon, like the Punxsutawney Phil on the Day of the Groundhog, the Manolo will emerge from his lair to make is annual official pronouncement on this matter.
