when i'm not wearing heels....
i finally opted for a pair of melissa plastic running shoes a couple of weeks ago as thats exactly what barbie would wear if she had flat feet. the ones above are the same style as the ones i have now. they are pretty cute and cybery. i wear then with short socks and sometimes just by themselves.
whats really the thing tho is the material, its a soft and pliable plastic that smells of bubblegum. it sooo nice... so smooth and i do them up really tight so i'm really in them if you know what i mean.
i'm really fussy about materials and sometimes i get joshed about it by friends who are just going for the look of clothing but not what it feels like or how its made. which is one reason i really avoid pvc. its all in the details i say.
so the material they make the melissa's out of - imagine knee high boots made from them, or even taller..... or a mannequin / doll suit.... wow.... coated in a soft pliable plastic..
in the mean time the shoes are cheap on ebay and some of them are colored schemed like iMacs... :-)
