OK, I am probably about the least qualified person on the planet to write a blog about ladies shoe fashion anywhere. If my wife saw the title, I am sure she would laugh. I will make an attempt to share with you some of the current fashions I saw on a recent trip to China. First, however, I would like to tell you about the style when I was teaching at a university a few years ago. The interesting thing to me about the designs back then were how the toes of the shoes were about 3 inches longer than they needed to be and extremely narrow. I am a very practical person, so I didn’t understand why the toe needed to be so long, nor did I understand why the young teachers wearing these shoes thought they would be comfortable in them.
Flashing forward to the present, you will notice some bright colored shoes with large heels and soles in the picture below. I do like the contrasting colors of her shoes and pants!
In the next picture, you can see large heels again with contrasting colors on the shoes. I honestly believe I would struggle walking with soles on my shoes this high.
The picture below continues the theme of contrasting colors, platform soles, and high heels. In these three pictures, we were outside in the rain waiting on a taxi. I am sure all of these ladies were worried about the water getting so high that it would come over their shoes and get their feet wet.
In the last picture I will present, the lady’s boots actually came above her knees. It wasn’t cold at all the night this picture was taken. Being the practical guy that I am, I don’t see how she kept from being way to warm in those boots on a such warm evening! Oh, well! At least she had her designer bag and smart phone to further improve the image she wanted to project!
