This is what they call spiked heels?
Blog Guy, I’m a loyal reader living in Scotland, and I need fashion advice. Can you recommend some good shoes for a knight out?
So you’re looking for stylish evening footwear?
No, I mean KNIGHT, not night! My boyfriend is a professional knight, and when he picks me up for a date in full armor, I like to look like I belong with him.
You may be in luck. The photo above shows a prominent guest at a big film festival last weekend. Her shoes have a medieval flair, and here are some others seen recently at chic events. Damsel shoes are having a Renaissance!
So where is your knight in shining armor taking you?
To a siege.
A siege? Who’s sending him there?
The king, his liege.
His liege is sending him to a siege? Well, as they say, noblesse oblige! Will he be dressed in the royal color?
Yes, Lamar will wear beige….
Wow. That’s quite a plume in his helmet. Any idea what he will do in the siege?
The king is being secretive. He just said it’s Lamar’s chance to be “catapulted to success.”
That’s exciting. Uh, has Lamar ever flown before? I’m just asking.
