Shoe Styles

When I saw these shoes on the Metro in Paris, it got me noticing men’s shoe styles everywhere I went. The photo is a bit blurry, but I had to pretend I was just browsing through the photographs on my camera when I took the shot.

Don’t you find the blue shoelaces fascinating? I was even more mesmerized when the wearer turned and I got a peek at his socks- they were the same shade of electric blue as the laces! 

Here’s a very spiffy pair in a shoestore -



I couldn’t see anything wrong with these ones besides the missing laces but they were discarded on a Paris street!!


These are from a Centraal Museum display in Utrecht, NL.

A display of women’s shoes at the Paris Flea Market I attended. Love the giant one.

Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been …

Well, I didn’t go to London, but I did go to The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany!  It was a complete surprise when my friend invited me to join her on her trip to visit her sister in Holland. They planned to tour by car into Germany to attend some of the German Christmas Markets.

Encouraged by my family to take advantage of the opportunity, I booked my flight and began to pack my bags.  And to research the places I had to visit while based in The Netherlands.

Paris, to which I’ve been longing to return, since my first visit there in 2006, was first on my list.  Also, Bruges or Brugge, in Belgium. 

I did get to both Paris and Bruges and many other cities as well. Here are some photo highlights of my trip. I still pinch myself when I look at the photographs I took; I just feel so lucky to have taken this trip.

I have hundreds more photographs, that I will post on Flickr or Picasa. Watch for my next post where I will be showing Men’s Shoes of Paris.
