Murse*

I am totally in love with this borderline-ugly pair of nurse shoes from Marc by Marc. They just fulfill all the requirements for a Laia shoe:
patent leather : check
favorite color blue: check
lace ups: check
weird chunky heel: check
weird square toe: check
siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.
They are going to look so adorable with anything and everything ever. The ONLY thing that could improve these is if they came in white (OMG can you imagine the level of obnoxiousness it would attain?) or something like bright pink or purple.
Shoes, I've got my eye on you!


*I know that "murse" is used to describe a man purse, but it made sense to use it to describe Marc nurse shoes. get it? GET IT?
I am a riot.

The word Murse fits these shoes better than it does with a man purse...

My sister had shoes that looked exactly like these in 1991. No joke. She tied them with black chiffon laces and wore the hell out of the. They were rad then, and the fancy MJ version is rad now.
