London Underground Fashion Victims

London Underground Fashion goes Pantomime

I believe that this weeks London Underground Fashion Victims were playing homage to that great Christmas tradition of the Panto. The footwear on these ladies has more than a nod and a wink towards some great pantomimes.

Dick Whittington Boots

Firstly, we have a lady who was definitely getting on a train towards Waterloo so that she could follow Dick Whittington's steps and "turn again" to City Hall, home of our current Mayor of London

Dick Whittington Boots

I know that these turn ups on boots are very popular right now, but for me the jury's still out. Every time I see a person in them, I feel like slapping my thigh and saying, "Why there young Dick, which way to London?"

Peasant Boots

These boots would probably be very appropriate for a peasant extra in something like Jack and the Beanstalk

Peasant Boots

Beyond Description

The following boots really defy description for me, but I think that some pantomime director would be able to find a good use for them

Boots that are beyond description

Aladdin Shoes

She must have been a bit cold in the shoes, as I only snapped this woman last night. But full marks for going out in December more or less in a pair of sandals

Aladdin Shoes

Particularly loving the way these shoes turn up at the toes. All she needed was a genie's lamp and she would have been set up.

Metallic Boots

Not exactly pantomime, but I couldn't resist adding these metallic boots. We've had a lot of discussion over the weeks about (in my opinion), hideous, metallic bags, which I am STILL seeing all over the place. But this was the first time I had spotted some Metallic Boots

Metallic Boots

Perhaps they could be used in a show like Faye Tozer (out of Steps) new "musical" Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens!

Check out all previous London Underground Fashion victims here and there's also a Flickr set for them.
