I still have a lot to post from Brazil, but I wore these the other night and they got so much attention I felt compelled to post a quick photo of them. They are one pair of the myriad shoes I bought from Brazil, they're spankingly made of rubber and they're midnight blue. A little pointy for me, but Michael convinced me to buy them, and I'm glad he did. They give off an air of patent leather but are far more durable and more importantly, unusual. On S's advice, I'm throwing out the wellies (so commmon these days) and going with Melissa when it rains.
