NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

These Boots Are Made For Walkin' . . . Or Not


Trish and JoAnn were curious if I was wearing my new gigantic boots while I was singing in the Bohemian Rhapsody video. I wasn't, because I didn't have them when the video was recorded. I was, however, wearing an awesome pair of platforms that look exactly like this only in silver:


Electrique Boutique, where I buy all my show boots, won't let me copy pics from there anymore, so if you want to see them in silver, click here. I'm thinking that growing up idolizing Kiss and Stevie Nicks has greatly influenced my choice in on-stage footwear. :-)

Just amazing...how high did you say those heels are?? I just know I'd hurt myself if I tried to even stand (forget about walking) in them!

Trish said...

Oh my! How do you do it Lezlie? I think the balls of my feet would be so sore at the end of the night.

JoAnn ~ The heel is 5 1/2 inches, but the front platform is almost 2 inches, so it's not that different from wearing about 3 inch pumps. Not that they don't still hurt a bit after three hours . . . :-)

Trish ~ They do get sore for sure. But I started wearing arch support socks with them, and that has helped a *ton*. I probably shouldn't wear stuff like this, but they just look so cool I can't give them up!

My best friend had a pair of black ones when I was in high school that I would wear occasionally.

Ladytink ~ They're fun, aren't they? You feel like a star as soon as you put them on! :-)

Karen ~ Thank you! And the boys thank you, too! A lab/border collie? She would *have* to be a genius! :-) What's her name?
