Sharing unusual and interesting shoes.

Atypical Shoes is a blog dedicated to interesting and unusual shoes. While some shoes may be considered by some to be ugly and others to be outrageous, the only guideline here is that the shoes are quirky.

I'll try to post shoes that are in an affordable price range for the average person, although I may throw in some with an outrageous price tag so we can have a good laugh at the sillyness of it all.

If you have seen any shoes that you would like to see posted or would like to share, please feel free to post me a comment so that we can share them together.

The Virtual Shoe Museum

February 25, 2007

This post isn't going to be about a particular pair of shoes, but a whole website dedicated to interesting shoes. The first thing I thought when I saw it was, "This website was made just for people like me, wasn't it?". The second though was, "Uh oh, which pair am I going to feature".

So, I thought I might as well just feature my favorite ones and let you visit the site yourselves. These are separated by category.

Miss L. Fire - Cindy Boots

Miss L. Fire - Cindy Boots

I'm not sure even I would have the guts or appropriate clothing to rock these, but I still think they are pretty interesting nonetheless.

They don't offer them for sale on their website, but they do have a list of stockists where you may find them if you are lucky enough to live next to one.

Giuseppe Zanotti - I6345

Giuseppe Zanotti - I6345

How are these for "interesting"? When I first saw them, my reaction was "ummmm", but the more I looked at them, the more they grew on me. It's too bad the sole is rubber instead of real wood, but they do kind of make a nice nod to nature, don't they? I think they would look cute with a long flowy cream colored chiffon dress like this one.

They are available for $553.95 at Zappos Couture.

Pucci - Rain Boots

Pucci Rain Boots

I'm not really a big fan of Pucci or rain boots either for that matter, but when I saw these, I just about died of a heart attack. How is it possible they made clunky rain boots into a beautiful work of art? They are so unique and lovely... I could just go on forever.

If you live in a rainy place and like they as much as I do, they may well be worth the investment of $153.95 over at Zappos Couture.
