I took this photo a while ago. I was wandering in the old town and noticed this shoe display in a shop window. Now this is not the kind of shoes that I would wear. I like at least a little bit of heel on mine (except for trainers and flip-flops, obviously). However, they made me think, the one in the middle especially, of a friend of mine with a taste for funky shoes. I have never forgotten the pair she bought when we were living in the UK, painted in bold colours with a sunset scene complete with palm tree!
I got my iPhone out once again and immortalized the moment. Then I sent her an email with the picture attached, telling her she needed a little holiday in Germany as I had found the perfect shop for her. Did she come and visit? Yes, in June last year. Did we make it to that place? No, we were too busy sightseeing, sitting by the river at our favourite beach bar or attending a country music festival! She will have to come again for that shoe shopping session…
Now tell me: what is your type of shoes?
