Goodbye summer

And let’s say goodbye with something we haven’t had around here lately: a shoe that Sarah Palin hasn’t been seen in.

Matisse Chantal sandals

You’re looking at the Matisse Chantal sandal, a just-slightly-wacky Brazilian-made wedge with a metallic animal print — whatever happened to all the metallic animals, anyway? — and about an inch of heel. (This is the gold color; silver can also be had.) It’s very summery, if you ask me, and, says Kim of Shoeaholics Anonymous, well-suited to the “boho look.” At $102.95 (, these are probably too inexpensive for boho exponents like Mary-Kate Olsen, but they’ll get plenty of takers, especially among women like Kim who hate things between their toes. Sorry, no insane psychosexual analysis available.

    You really are a shoe fetishist, aren’t you. Or do you sell them?

    No, and no, in that order. (To address the former: to qualify as a fetish, one’s, um, interest has to be a factor in either real or fantasy sex life. Not the case here.)
