I can’t help noticing (mainly due to their near-ubiquitous inclusion at just about every shoe retailer) that fringed shoes, boots, and sandals are still holding strong as a fashion trend. This particular footwear trend has had more strength than I might have expected - or hoped for. However, having experienced the fringed-shoe trend at least once before, I find myself even less likely to embrace it this second time around than I was back in the days when MTV still played videos.
So, I still can’t see myself indulging in this particular trend; not even when Mr. Louboutin is playing in the fringe arena. Maybe there is a particular age-range and geographic area where one can most successfully carry off the whole fringe look … Methinks my particular chunk of Small-town America doesn’t really fit the bill. Plus, there’s that fine line with fringe that can quickly turn from playful to outright stripper-licious.
As for today’s ‘Fringe-tastic’ footwear; take a look at this Louboutin offering worthy of any Solid Gold dancer:
Wait. You don’t know or remember Solid Gold?
Here, watch these videos:
Now, time for the shoes:
So, is it difficult to understand why I can’t look at these without hearing the Solid Gold theme song?
How about the rest of you?
