"Sex is in the heel."
I just watched the most wonderful movie, Kinky Boots. Yes, it is about shoes. The truly inspired story is set in Northampton, England in an old men's shoe factory that is about to go out of business. Instead of letting that happen the owner decides to find a new niche market to corner. Which niche? why, the fabulous drag queen market, of course! This got me to thinking: can men be fabulous in so called women's shoes?
Honey, if you can wear it, you can work it. If we tell women that no matter what size their feet they will look fabulous in fabulous shoes, why not men? Now, do I think MFP would look fabulous in a pair of Dolce's? No. Why? because he doesn't appreciate them for what they are: little pieces of fabulous. A drag queen, however, would probably appreciate the shoes, love them, and do right by them. It must take a lot of effort to find your true identity in a bit of glam, a bit of chiffon, a bit of leather, and a bit of lace. And what a fabulous identity that is to find! So I say, hell yes! men can be fabulous in fabulous shoes. The right men. The chosen men. The lovely men.
I wonder if this shoe comes in extra large?
