I wanna know how they can call it a "violin shoe"... it doesn't even have a single string on it or peg!

What I want to know is why is Oliver looking at women's shoes. Is there something you want to tell us?

I was ambushed by Google while scouting for more conventional violin items. 

(Besides, I could never walk in those high heels.  I'm having trouble being stable with my slippers.)

Instead of regular shoe sizes, do you have to order them in 2/4, 3/4 or 4/4?

roflol

Did you see that they also have viola shoes?

http://www.amazon.com/Miz-Mooz.....sbs_shoe_3

That's what I'd have to order since I have big feet. facepalm

 

BTW, it's pretty funny that until now it's been all guys discussing women's pumps. Aren't you supposed to be talking about sports or cars or something?

dunno

Scratchy .....  I began this inquiry only to be sure I was not missing something important that every one but me knew about.  So far, that has not happened and I'm still wondering about the motive for these shoes and the conspiracy to exclude a version for men ?????

Kevin .... this topic is getting stranger by the post and now I wish they had a catalog.

It's not a conspiracy. Men have bow ties.

I wonder if they come in a 9?

I would think that the viola pump would come in the extra width sizes, like XL, XXL, and XXXL for the larger women out there. LOL
