colour - an attribute of things that results from the light they reflect, transmit, or emit in so far as this light causes a visual sensation that depends on its wavelengths.

snakeskin - refers to the shed skin of a living snake after moulting or to a type of leather that is made from the hide of a dead snake.
snakeskin is used to make clothing such as vests, belts, shoes or fashion accessories such as handbags.
snake leather is regarded as an exotic product alongside crocodile, lizard, ostrich, emu, camel, among others. With crocodile and lizard leathers, it belongs to the category of reptile leathers, with a scaly appearance.

colour + snakeskin shoes = exquisiteness.

turkis - robert clergerie

turkis = fur

fur is a synonym for hair, used in reference to non-human animals, usually mammals; particularly those with extensive body hair coverage. 
The term is sometimes used to refer to the body hair of an animal as a complete coat, also known as the "pelage". fur is also used to refer to animal pelts which have been processed into leather with the hair still attached. the words fur or furry are also used, more casually, to refer to hair-like growths or formations; particularly when the subject being referred to exhibits a dense coat of fine, soft "hairs."

these robert clergerie shoes are the epitome of style. i can imagine isabella blow swanning around in these wonderful creations. just superb.

keilailu = bowling

bowling shoes are designed to mimic any style of flat shoe from regular dress shoes to athletic shoes. the sole of the non sliding foot is generally made of rubber to provide traction, while the sliding foot's sole is made of a smooth and flat material that allows a bowler to slide into his release with a rubber heel to allow for braking. rental shoes are typically leather and rubber on both feet for durability. these shoes can be bought, but most casual players rent the shoes each visit to a facility. 

have a peek at these bowling-esque shoes spotted in port fairy, victoria. these country folk have got the bowling shoe sorted. yes indeed.

se comme des garçons tarina

comme des garcons is french for "like the boys"

the label was started in tokyo by rei kawakubo in 1969 and established as a company in japan in 1973. comme des garçons became successful in japan in the 1970s; a menswear line was added in 1978. The year 1981 saw comme des garçons's debut show in paris. it created a splash for its predominant use of black and distressed fabrics.
it is one of my most admired and sought-after wonder i chose these striking black and white numbers to feature on king kenka. i think the scissor stockings are superb.

miehet = men

The human foot and ankle is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing exactly 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated), and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and why not put them in the finest, most exotic shoe possible. they deserve it right? correct.

i attended a jazzing soiree recently and snapped some fine gentlemen in the most exquisite footwear. imagine serge gainsbourg  swooning around, along with steve mcqueen and le corbusier....yves saint laurent would have been put to the test against these sharply dressed men.

isä ja poika

It's not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.
