Farewell Old Friends!


This post is really for Cory Ashworth. Cory has teased me about these shoes since the dawn of Cosmo Cricket. He noticed that I wore them at our debut show and repeated them at our second show. I told him that they were the coolest shoes ever (he is not convinced) and were my signature piece........ you know, like Jackie O's pearl necklace. He thinks they are old, worn out and dated, but you have to consider that although he might have a point, this criticism is coming from a man that wore a grey winter-type sweater in California..... two days in a row! He has given me such a bad time about these shoes that I have been determined to wear them more and more. Well, he won in the end because after more than 6 years, 7 trade shows and 3 countries they are breaking in half. You can sort of see it in the photo. I think I might have them bronzed. Or, better yet, maybe I'll send them special delivery to Cory.

Oh i think you should definetly do a layout about them and maybe take a piece of the strap off. I like them!

bobbi,

They were Kenneth Cole. My mom gave them to me for a birthday. I love them and would buy another pair tomorrow if they still sold them!

i had a pair of cole-haan loafers that i had re-soled many, many times. the soles would wear thin and sometimes they even cracked. but they were always able to be repaired. good leather so the tops looked wonderful. if you love them, consider taking them in and seeing if they can be fixed.

I think they are super COOL just like Cosmo Cricket! Wow you certainly got your money's worth. You get way you pay for. Life is too short to wear cheap shoes!

Hey, Cory's not someone who should be commenting on other people's shoes. Have you ever seen his pink shoelaces???
