Single-use shoes

Jane by David's BridalTrini’s sister is getting married this summer, and as tradition presumably demands, she’s dictated the outfits for the lesser members of the party. These are the shoes specified, “Jane” by David’s Bridal, which comes in about eleventy-five different colors or can be dyed to match other stuff in the store. It’s a pretty innocuous shoe, but Trini objected on humanitarian grounds: it would be cruel, she said, to make her wear heels, even heels this low, for any length of time, and she doesn’t care a fig about any presumed advantages of the configuration. I opined that considering these shoes will likely never be worn again unless they’re donated to Goodwill or something, it might not be worth the bother or expense. Bridezilla, so far, will not be moved.

    What’s up with this? I have a picture of the shoe and nothing else.

    Is anyone else having this issue? I’ve tried it on two different machines and it looked fine.

    Chaz, forgive me if you said that somewhere already: who is Trini?

    Trini is the PC expert at 42nd and Treadmill: she maintains the entire fleet (several dozen computers) plus peripherals and software. No connection to Trini Lopez, except that both have been known to say “If I had a hammer….”

    Well, geez, what do you want me to say? “She walks in beauty, like the night, and I would crawl over broken beer bottles in the hot sun just to touch her shadow”?

    Do not presume.
