Prada Mary Jane shoes


These heart stopping shoes by Prada were seen on a rare trip to Harrods yesterday. I felt too shy to ask the price but I guess they are probably the cost of a basic three speed no frills Brompton. Mary Jane shoes are for me the best type of shoe, apart from boots to cycle in.

I had to go to Harrods to collect a book when I came across an exhibition of Red Shoes by various designers to celebrate the 70 anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. Judy Garland as Dorothy in her red sparkling slippers is an enduring film image. You can even buy a limited edition copy of the shoes and part of the money goes to a children’s charity. I did take photos of the various designer red shoes studded with crystal but a combination of harsh lights and glass cases meant none of them are clear enough to post.

I was admiring these:

in office yesterday. (I've blown my shoe budget for quite some time with the purchase of my bright red patent leather boots - so window shopping is all I can afford) - apparently office don't consider them to be high heels (only medium).

I'm not a fan of super skinny heels, myself - too many bad memories of eighties stilettos getting stuck in grids and cobbles and leaving me half shoeless...
Platforms and wedges are more my style. I'm still a seventies girl at heart!

Thanks for the link. I like the double strap on the Office Mary Jane Shoes and the Green colour. Like you I think they are high heels but for Office shoes who have a range of very high and platform shoes this is medium. I like stilettos but most are too high and sometimes I find kitten heels too low.


Your bright red patent boots sound fab.

I have these shoes. they were slightly less expensive than the Pashley Poppy I was given for Xmas, birthday and valentines day for the next ten years!

I won't be cycling in them. :)

Ahh! Lucky you! But if you need another bike you can sell the shoes on Ebay, if you can bear to part with them.
