NYU Spring 2014 Kick off!

You gotta love shoes… They protect your feet… keep your feet warm… They are a stylish and fun accessory… With ever greater comfort, they are part of feminist and psychoanalytical history… (Google foot binding for a heartbreaking story of tiny feet in tiny shoes…)

And most importantly for your patents translation class, they’re ‘chocfull of patents… for outersoles, innersoles, and midsoles; for forefoot, midfoot, heel and arch; for fasteners, buckles and lacing; for materials, production lines, and your health, there’s a patent in almost every shoe you’ll ever wear!

So…. for a different dose of shoes… and to complete your emerging interest in re-discovering shoes as never before…. Please also visit a sister blog in French called SHOOOES – Un blog mode QUE sur les chaussures by Mathilde Toulot from France’s Le Monde daily paper.   You will find witty posts all about shooooes…. e.g.;  Une bonne reshoelution: ranger!, La running… (Dior Haute Couture)! Shoe trends! Shooooes at work! Shoe-pping! Do it your shoes…! Plus, lots more fun, sparkling and insightful reporting from the trenches of fashion and life.

It is always comforting to know that one is never alone going batty on shoes! In fact nothing could be farther from the truth.  Take a peek, and remember to lavishly pamper your feet!
