I love doll shoes, this much is obvious from the fact that the Tiny Shoe Love column exists! In particular, I love shoes that go up the ankle a bit because they stay on that much better.
Minnow is wearing Plastic Fashion (don’t tell Eden Mouse that she’s wearing this dress!).
I wanted to draw everyone’s attention to these lovely granny boots that are Velvet Minuet stock. Where did the term ‘granny boot’ come from? Granny boots are women’s boots that lace up the front and are reminiscent of high-top boots from the 19th century. The more you know! I find that they, while being official Blythe stock, do fit a wee bit loose. You can see how it gapes just a little bit around the ankles and it does make it easier for them to fall off. Case in point, I held up Minnow (my Hi-Ho! Marine that is modeling these lovely boots) and shook her around and they came flying off. Don’t worry, no dolls were harmed in this process because I held onto the pull ring. I think with normal holding and no shaking, they’ll stay on pretty well though.
Overall my verdict is that they are super cute, probably aren’t the best if you’re going to be outside and not paying attention if the shoes fall off, but they are super cute, and lend a bit of sophisticated air to a doll’s outfit of the day.
Tiny Shoe Love is a feature on BlytheLife.com to showcase and share doll shoes that grace Michelle’s picky dolls’ feet. We love tiny shoes in this house, and we hope you do too!
