The toe piece is my idea as it reminds me of a snake‘s tongue. I was born in the Chinese Year of the Snake. I have a large symbolic snake tattoo on my back [ my design two snakes with tails intertwined into an infinity symbol holding a red crystal ball - sits on root chakra]. Snakes mean something to me. They also like me. Even the good old Eastern Brown Snake. (Don’t let the innocuous name of this snake fool you, 1/14,000 of an ounce of its venom is enough to kill an adult human. Coming in a variety of species, the Eastern Brown snake is the most venomous. Unfortunately, its preferred habitat is also along the major population centers of Australia. The Brown snake is fast moving, can be aggressive under certain circumstances and has been known to chase aggressors and repeatedly strike at them. Even juveniles can kill a human. The venom contains both neurotoxins and blood coagulants. Fortunately for humans, less than half of bites contain venom and they prefer not to bite if at all possible. They react only to movement, so stand very still if you ever encounter one in the wild.) LINK
I show you a little snip of me walking in them in the corridors of the city hotel.
The Swiss are such openly curious people. They whip out their mobile phones and film me walking around in my ballets. They chat away. They are truly fabulous. I really enjoyed my ballet heels wanders around the places we visited.
These boots have morphed into heel-less versions because I didn’t like the way the heel bent up under the toe. There will be a test pilot video very soon.
