Shoes, shoes, shoes

Tonight I went for a walk through Ermou street - home of the designer shoe shop. As I had my camera with me, I took some photos of the latest fashions for Sandi, who famously bought five pairs of shoes in just three hours when she visited Athens last June. I thought I'd post the photos on the blog in case anyone else would like a little sneak peak of the styles and colours of Summer 2010.






Last year's shoes are on sale at discounted prices. I was tempted by quite a few of these. Lucky the shops were closed!




Finally, a photo of a children's shoe shop window, in case anyone is interested in kids' fashions. Red is a popular colour for kids' shoes at Easter time.


So, Sandi, have I enticed you to return to Athens for a spot of retail therapy?

Whoa!!! I love shoes....is it a girl thing hahahahh.....I love heels but problem is that I have to 'slow' down and not able to run so heels are reserved for dinner & formal meetings :D

Sandi said...

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!! I'm salivating :-P How could you do this to me - it's torture... window shopping has never been one of my forte's...not very satifying! YES - the pull to return to Athens is still as strong as ever.. my other pairs are still being worn but hey, as Imelda says, 'one can never have enough pairs of shoes' ;) xx

I'm with Sandi! Well, except for those lace-up boots.

Any pair you found particularly hard to resist? :)

JM said...

Funny post! :-)

Sandi said...

I agree, even I wouldn't purchase the 'interesting' lace boots :-/

Oh-h, I adore shoes. In fact, my friends call me "Imelda"...after Imelda Marcos, wife of the prime minister of the Philippines years ago who, when he was deposed, was found to have hundreds and hundreds of pairs of shoes. Actually, I'm not that bad...yet...lol.

There are some beautiful shoes in that shop and I could easily max out the credit card there.

Gday Tinsie.
Wow Shoes and more shoes. just looking at those gives me a backache,
Mind you I used own many pairs Stilletto's many years ago till I had back problems now its very flat shoes..

Trotter said...

No crisis, surely, in the shoe industry... ;))
Blogtrotter is waiting for you at the MED! ;) Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

Mmm fab shoes. It's probably a good thing that I don't live in Athens or I'd be broke.

@ Shionge: I only wear high heels at weddings! Thankfully there are still plenty of lovely shoes with mid or low heels for all other occasions :-)

@ Sandi: I must say, I agree with Imelda on this one!

@ Karen: The lace-up boots don't do it for me either. But maybe if I was tall and skinny, with really long legs and little regard for my spine, I'd consider wearing them. I imagine they'd look interesting with a tiny skirt or tight trousers, neither look works for me though!

@ Per Stromsjo: The ones I found the hardest to resist were the dusky pink pumps with matching clutch bag in the first photo. I don't care about the bag, but the shoes are a dream. If the shops had been open when I was there, I might just have had to have them.

Tinsie said...

@ JM: Only a man would think a post about shoes is funny. Tsk tsk tsk!

@ Puss-in-Boots: Join the club, Imelda :-)

@ Jeanette: Flats usually come out in force later in the season (May/June time) when people buy shoes for their summer holidays. At the moment it's mostly shoes for weddings, and that means high heels. I've never been good with high heels myself, but they do look good.

@ Trotter: Unfortunately that's not true - there were far too many shoes at reduced prices for the time of year. It was good for me though, as I bought a designer pair of sandals for just 65€!

@ Loops: Nah, you'd have developped a resistance to pretty shoes if you lived in Athens ;-)

Loops said...

There is no such thing as resistance to shoes!

Tinsie said...

As they say, resistance is futile ;-)
