When I grow up...

...I'm gonna get me some shoulder shoes.

Shoulder Shoes?

Shoes which are completely impractical for walking. Designed to attract the opposite sex with a view to resting them on their shoulders during the evening.

Thank you to Nicole-Kidman-lookalike Flirtysomething for that. (She’s single too. However, unlike me, she actually goes out and talks to men occasionally.)

  • Ha, I do like a nice neologism.

    Could I ask for one for "shoes that you wear on the way to work because your work shoes are impractical/too painful for commuting"?

    WV: bigpg. Hmm...

  • I met a girl wearing some of those last weekend!

  • Mystified here - will you still be wearing the shoes when they are resting on his shoulders?

  • Must admit, I was in the same boat as Mangonel for a few minutes. Why would a bloke wear a girl's shoes on his... d'oh...

    See, that's what marriage does for you.

  • Oh, I have a beautiful pair of 'shoulder shoes'. They are Steve Maddens (bad picture here, they are absolutely darling, and, as Tamsin Greig says in "Black Books," "They make strong men weep in railway stations."

    And oh, they hurt like hell. Gotta find a really cooperative boy to wear these, I tell ya.

  • You can borrow my shoulder shoes as I am unfortunately not getting ANY use from them at the moment. Thanks for the mention !

  • OH!

  • Heh... Mangonel - if you gotta ask...

    And what a fab term!

  • This is where having a relationship with a geography teacher might come in handy.

    You wouldn't have to endure wearing horribly uncomfortable skysraper stilettos in the bedroom. They'd much prefer to see you wearing nothing but Clarks pasty shoes!

  • I recommend Heelies for quick escapes. Does the shoulder thing work with slippers? I too am also married, you just forget you know, what it's like to have sex with your shoes on as opposed to your pyjamas.

  • fine until you catch the guy licking them.

    true story.

  • Oh thank you all - those comments have prompted an awful lot of lol-ing here.

    I have started wearing pyjamas recently. And I'm not even married.

  • Are shoulder-shoes like face-pants?

  • They have to be Gortex
