truebluemeandyou: The Ultimate Shoe Guide Part 1. Did you miss this post?
DIY Know Your Shoes Guide from Enerie here. My favorite shoes aren’t listed yet - Louis Heels which were popular in the 1920s. First seen at inspiration & realisation’s Facebook page.
Excuse? Said “Lobster claw” shoes are actually known as Armadillos. Alexander McQueen, Plato’s Atlantis S/S 2010.
Look it up
crankycrafter: Actually the Armadillos are popularly known by everyone as “Lobster Claw Shoes”. And in your immortal words:
sad for erry1 else then, qurl, but it wouldnt kill anyone to research stuff. might learn something, yo. alsO I FKN QUOTED MADGE
xcuse me while i go die~ x0x0 But in all seriousness, I guess my main argument is that the Armadillos aren’t really a “style” of shoe, per say? I haven’t really seen anything else like them before, personally. But whatever helps you sleep at night, I guess!
crankycrafter: seriously, I was joking. This is Tumblr and I couldn’t resist posting the perfect Madonna GIF. I’m sleeping just fine and I appreciate that you set the record straight about Lobster Claw shoes being originally called “Armadillos”. Peace.
truebluemeandyou: seriously, this is why I LOVE TUMBLR. Because of Lobster Claw/Armadillo shoe debates.
