Shoe Fetish Tales
The Stockroom recently added the Toybag Guide to Foot and Shoe Worship to our list of books by Midori. What is it about the feet and shoes that sparks so much excitement to such a wide range of people?
I am fascinated by the architecture of shoes. It takes great skill to construct a stunningly beautiful shoe that gracefully balances the foot and carries the weight of the whole human body. Shoes say so much about a person. If the shoes aren't sexy, the wearer doesn't stand a chance. When I see someone wearing socks with Tivas, I want to make a citizens arrest! There ought to be a law! Contact the Fashion Police!
There is an extremely sexy chapter in Mistress Nan's autobiographical book, My Private Life- Real Experiences of a Dominant Woman. Nan discovers a shared proclivity when she shops for a new pair of shoes at a high end shoe store in the city. The shoe salesman offers to personally deliver an especially gorgeous pair of shoes to Nan's high rise apartment. You can guess what transpired from there...
It reminds me of a scene with Charlotte and a shoes salesman from Sex in the City. Charlotte learns what power a pretty pair of feet can have. And yes, she gets the shoes she covets in the end.
I've always enjoyed the extra creative, offbeat pair of sexy shoes. I am a huge fan of Canada's John Fluevog line. I was thrilled to find out that there is a John Fluevog store in Los Angeles on Melrose. He designs shoes that offer strange, sci fi angles, and voluptuous heels.
