This week I’m promoting my song One Foot in Front of the Other, and the natural shoe pairing for this number are this pair of sporty heels.
There was a bit of a trend in the late 90s of sneaker heels. I would like ten more pairs of them. They come back every few years, but the more recent models have been wedges, which I do like, but there’s something about the high tops and lace up fronts of some of the 90s one’s that I just loved. The only pair I currently have are these NM70s. (NM for Nicolle Murray) I got them second hand at a Value Village in Montreal.
At the time, I had my sights set of the 100 metre stiletto dash. These have straps, and would not have been acceptable in competition, but I can run pretty well in them (because of the grip and the straps) so I have a vague recollection of buying these saying: Here’s my training shoes. They look really good with my favourite work-out shirt.
They also look good with a T-shirt dress:
And with jeans.
Three cheers for a versatile shoe I say.
