Don't You Step On My Purple ( Red, Green ) Suede Shoes!

I love the window displays in Paris. Sometimes the sheer creativity stops me in my tracks. Other times it's just the outrageous offerings that I don't think I'd ever see back here in Birmingham, Alabama!  For the record, I've not spotted anyone in Paris sporting purple suede shoes!

Here's what Elvis has to say.

For my Birmingham area readers I will be offering another series of photography classes. Designed for amateur photographers with any type digital/film camera who want to be more creative and learn to take better family and vacation photos.

Very nice photo, V, but I do not think that I would be buying any of the colorful suedes.

One of my favourite pairs of shoes ever were pink suede shoes that I had in my late teens. Modest heel, pointy toes, and two triangles pointing upwards up the achilles. I was devastated when they got wet and ruined. Perhaps I should get to Paris and get some purple suede shoes, they are fabulous

The purple shoes are for the American tourists who think they are being Paris fashionable lol!

I thought of you last night! We watched the movie The Tourist with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. The first scene takes place in Paris and she was sitting in the exact spot as your post
"Where is this? You Know"
I said to my husband ..."I know this photo !!"
Have you seen the movie? It is fantastic!

The suede shoes look more like moccasins.

The display certainly achieves its purpose, which is to draw attention!
God bless you!

Harriet said...

These look like men's shoes, so let's pose the question to Laurent: Do Parisien men wear purple suede shoes???

I have to say I adore the purple suede shoes! Great image!

This is a great window display! I love that dash of color breaking up the monotony of all brown! Thanks for the tip on the movie The Tourist. I want to see it too.

Super image and of course I go weak at the knees when I hear Elvis...

Love these shoes...but not expecting to see a pair on the Chief anytime soon!!!

Laurent said...

@ Hariet : no I do not !!!

Viennese Girl Vreni said...

I think, Italian men would like to wear those shoes. The French are not so much into colours.

Virginia said...

Vreni, I think you might be so right about that! :)

You really don't seem the type to wear those either! HA
