shoes.. a celebration of pumps, sandals, slippers & more by linda o'keefe
a good friend of mine is studying in egypt and sent it all the way back to america for moi!! i will be picking shoes of the day from this incredible collection. as well as words of wisdom behind the remarkable shoe. there are pieces of history in here with fantastic pictures and descriptions.
so, to start us off.. a personal favorite:
section: the sensible shoe.
description: nonskid driving shoes worn by european sports car aficionados inspired italian desgner diego della valle to create j.p. tod's in 1979. the sole and heel of these quirky unisex moccasins are embedded with rubber pebbles designed to grip car pedals. made in more than 100 colors, tod's have become the status shoe of the '90s, favored by the fit and the fabulous.
although i didn't own my first pair of tod's until the 21st century, i would hardly call my interest dated. tod's has been expanding and growing with a wonderful line of handbags and leather accessories. of course, the driving moc is the staple tod's product and it comes in a variety of colors and fabrics. i highly recommend this uber comfortable shoes both in the car and out.
