Shoe Thursday: Attorney edition

You know, with all of the legal maneuvering going on the The Episcopal Church, from Virginia to California and spots in-between (including church trials - Bishops Schofield, Cox, and MacBurney, anyone?), I thought this might be a good day to take a look at proper footwear for the courtroom.

The only problem is that most bishops are men and most attorneys seem to be as well. And frankly, men’s shoes are just not as interesting.

But, we do have the problem solved here in southern California. A shout-out to Lynn Moyer, attorney for All Saints and St. David's in Los Angeles - these shoes are for you!

First, these winter-wear flats, kinda nice, but not quite as professional in a power-suit sort of way as one might want:

Next, a much more sophisticated look by Manolo Blahnik:
Carolyne by Manolo Blahnik
A nice spring look with a lighter color:
Pfenning from the Anne Klein
This looks very L.A. for the summer:
Hampton by Stuart Weitzman
Now, we've arrived at the true power shoe - Italian, of course, and how appropriate for those representing "churchy" things that these are made of python skin. Only just over $800 a pair - let's see, that's about 2 lawyer hours, right?
Metallic python pumps by Christian Louboutin
And, as an antidote to the courtroom, The Manolo offers this:

Yes, it is true, nothing cures the Don’t-Want-To-Be-The-Lawyer Blues like the new pair of the shoes, such as these incredibly beautiful silver open-toed shoes from the Sergio Rossi.
Kuly by Sergio Rossi
Beautiful? Yes!

Professional? No!

Kick Ass? Emphatically!

All the more reason to strap these onto your lawyerly feets and march them into the office of the managing partner and demand your “fair share”! Pronto, Old Man, chop chop!
