mardi gras shoesIt’s a rainy weekend in Sydney, Australia which means it must be time for the 2014 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade. I’ll spare you the usual headlines (“Rain fails to dampen revellers’ spirits”; “Sydney rains on rainbow parade” etc etc) in favour of a footwear focus. Specifically a pair of new rainbow mules from YRU footwear called, appropriately enough, The Dream. They’ve just arrived at heels.com for $99.99.

Rainbow shoesYRU is high on my list of shoe brands with crapola websites but in the spirit of tolerance it seems appropriate to overlook that right now. (YRU’s website crime BTW is that it auto-plays music when you access the site and, even when you figure out that there’s a hidden menu on the left hand side that allows you to turn it off, it comes back on again when you change pages. But I digress.)

Anyhowwwwwwwww… the rainbow has been the symbol of gay pride for generations, and the Dream comes fully equipped with a 2.5 inch colorful rainbow platform heel. Not only useful for celebrating diversity but smashing for splashing through puddles if the weather doesn’t clear up. The Dream is available in sizes 6-10 (whole sizes only) at heels.com, and there is also a version with a black and white checked sole as well.

Happy Mardi Gras to all!
