I knew it had to be out there, and it is, at 17 percent of the price

Aerosoles! They have the reputation of being Little Old Lady shoes, but every so often I've found something that is not only inexpensive and comfortable, but has a delightful retro vibe. My Pink-Mauve Suede Peeptoe Platform Slingbacks (3" heel) come to mind. Great color, closer to Shocking than to Mauve, and a wonderful accent with black-and-white tweeds.

And now, without further ado:
It's called Betunia, it's suede, and it costs $69. Before promos. It's available in Medium and Wide widths.

How about that?


  1. I got this exact shoe in the leopard calf hair. All the looks of smoking loafers, but Aerosoles in-soles - I am in!

  2. hi, Lisa, I find myself strangely attracted to the red suede version. It looks like a true red.

  3. How about that, eh? well done, WFF, well done.

  4. Bahahahahaha! We knew it was out there, somewhere... good find!

  5. Love it! Even less expensive than my green velvet smokers from Cole haan last year! Thanks Fred!

  6. I'd pad about the house in those. Even a crown for the Leos.

  7. Yes, and they are probably comfortable, too!

  8. aerosoles interior, what could be bad?


As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
