One of the side effects of having a career break is that I have time to watch daytime TV. I've just seen these Shuellas on tv 4 times in the last 24 hours. They are a cross between a shoe and an umbrella, and are supposed to be worn over your shoes to protect them in the rain. I suppose it is quite a practical idea...
They have just come out in the UK, in Kurt Geiger. They were touted as being really popular in the US. Can anyone tell me if this is true, or are the designers just trying to fob them off on gullible Brits? My fashion consciousness has slipped somewhat as I have gotten older. Ten years ago, I worked in the US, and I could not understand these women with tights and trainers. I felt so stylishly superior as I walked to work in high heels. But as the years have gone by...well, lets just say I'm not so opposed to the idea (and I have potential feet problems, I need to look after them.)
But Shuellas? I think I would draw the line. Then again, I am always caught short without an umbrella, so the chance of me having my Shuellas when I need them is non-existent.
