It wasn’t quite as easy as I anticipated. I fired up the browser, pointed it to Zappos.com, set the search criteria for “women’s shoes” and “green” — no other specifications — and while I got three pages of results, most of them seemed to be either turquoise or some variation of British racing green.
Then there was this:
“Calypso” by Kate Spade is described as a “kelly green,” which seems accurate enough. It’s an interesting shoe, with that rope-look strappage and a modest two-inch heel. But what makes it most interesting to me is the fact that at the moment, Zappos.com will sell it to you for $56 less than if you’d ordered any of the four other available colors, including a right smart orange. I suppose no one likes green shoes except Suzette — or the Boston Celtics.
