Channeling Liberace: Why are Sequined Shoes Making a Comeback?Posted on June 13th, 2010 1 comment
With slight alarm, I’ve been noticing sequins popping up on women’s shoes for summer and pre-fall–from Converse kicks to Miu Miu platforms. What accounts for this need for bling on one’s footwear? Is it a longing for the simpler times of Liberace or have we nothing else left to bedazzle? I, for one, will be skipping the sequins and keeping them where they belong–on pasties.
For the comfort-loving professional, I present: Sam Edelman Kat Sequined Oxfords!
For the hip-hop sequin lover, check out these Converse All Star Sequins in rainbow colors!
For the glam diva who needs her shoes to make an entrance before she does, how about Miu Miu Glittered Criss-Cross Pump? (I know glitter and sequins aren’t the same, but they are relatives.)
Just for kicks (haha!), check out shoes from Liberace’s actual shoe collection from the Liberace Museum in, where else, Vegas.
Here’s his red sequined sneaker, circa 1966.
And, his beaded pink loafers, circa 1967.
