US Kedettes Capri Clogs, 1951

Are these as cute as I think they are?  Sometimes I think I may be overly influenced by the messages sent by the advertising.  In the above ad from 1951, the image of the little colorful boats awaiting their turn, ready to enter Capri’s Blue Grotto hits my travel bug hard.  So I’m thinking maybe I’m being swayed by what I would like to be doing while wearing thess Capri Clogs, rather than being in love with the shoes themselves.

Then I take another look at them, and think, “Naw.. it’s the shoes!”
