Shhh, shh for a second, do you hear that screeching? That, dear readers, would be the noise coming from the cogs grinding in my cage as I try to make decisions. Back when I was in uni, Ellen and I used to shoo away our waiter five times before deciding on what to get – we’d eenie-meenie-minie-mo the menu and end up with spinach goo, apple crumble and carrot juice. Think it would’ve been tastier to catch a tiger by the toe and grill that instead. I KID YOU NOT, this Upper Street session took longer than it took for me to write my dissertation. Wait, that’s not saying much is it, all you students already know it was written in the bus on the deadline morning… After hours of rotating the virtual foot round and round, consulting my inner genius shoe-designerness, I sort of… ended up copying this Calvin Klein Collection sandals from SS11. (China Woman had no part in this.)
I was actually really surprised at the quality of the final product and the effort they made into interpreting the extra requirements I added in the order (two straps in different colours…etc). I was worried the straps would make it too flimsy, but the Upper Street technicians managed to deliver a well-functioning contraption and I therefore managed to avoid falling in the algae-infested canal with a snapped heel.
Do you think if I eenie-meenie-minie-mo’d the shoes, they’d end up looking like Kit’s design? (I love you Kit, really)
