The other day, while on the same Boston adventure that lead to my purchase of Bitches Brew, I was browsing around Newbury Comics. I was looking for a CD that I have had a tough time finding. Though I didn’t find the CD, I did find these…
…Shwings! This product, a word merge of shoe and wings, was exactly something I didn’t know I was looking for. I didn’t expect them to exist.
Jump back to a conversation Alex and I were having about how she wants a pair of Jeremy Scott Adidas. This lead to me sending her an e-mail with pictures of these flats.
It then made me think that these could be more easily made on ones own than they would be to acquire, and it would be a lot cheaper. Additionally it would make for a fun DIY project that would allow you to say yours were unique and hand crafted by you. However, I assumed that we would have to buy fabric and sew the wings ourselves. But, thanks to “shoe-wings,” we can cut that difficult step out of the DIY project.
Still not sure if we’re gonna end up chopping into a pair of flats. She’ll probably just put them (the Shwings) on a pair of shoes she already owns and use them as intended. Either way, they made for a good sporadic late birthday/early Hanukkah present.
