Shoe twins

I searched for images of these shoes on line, but with no luck. I'm not surprised; I bet everyone who ever owned any (and if you owned one pair, you probably owned more) wore them until they completely fell apart. They were so perfect for business, and a person could actually walk in them. They had stacked heels and looked good with trousers and with skirts and suits. They weren't cheap, but they weren't as expensive as today's partial equivalents, those Ferragamo items made in various heel styles over the years (mostly low) with the grosgrain bows through the flat piece of metal. Among the variants were shoes in real patent leather (there was leather underneath the shine; they weren't made of plastic). The Andrew Geller shoes were sportier than Carla. My twin? Martha Stewart.
