Shoes come off, Paul. And you can drink champagne out of them.

I don't get it. What's wrong with pointy shoes?

Posted by perchance | June 3, 2008 3:29 PM

Why is it women freak out about foot size and yet wear shows that make their feet look bigger, and pointier?

Posted by pragmatic | June 3, 2008 3:32 PM

Agreed, there is nothing sexy about impractical, dangerous footwear. But the rest of the picture is quite nice. :)

Posted by gfish | June 3, 2008 3:33 PM

With an ass like that. Why, pray tell, would you even notice the shoes?

Posted by meks | June 3, 2008 3:42 PM

word. pointy shoes and tapered jeans are the giant shoulder pads and . . . tapered jeans of this generation.

More research needed.

again, paul, part of "being a man" is to appreciate heels. if women want to wear shoes that lengthen their legs & lift their buttocks up & out, go with it.

next you'll be saying there's something wrong "anti-boner" about thigh high stockings.

is that because the point is usually found up your balls? yeah that's what i thought.

Pointy shoes are fine by me! I'm not necessarily "into" feet, at least I don't think I am, but I kinda like women with big feet. Or at least normal sized feet. Tiny, tiny diminutive feet, or feet small enough to hide under pants (the look that's usually accompanied by that shuffly, helpless walk) - big turnoff for me.

@9 I am pained, pained I tell you to say this but Max Solomon is right about the "point" of pointy shoes. Well, not necessarily the pointiness but the high heels.

Those of us that can wear them well wear them because they can sex an outfit right up. Those who wear them, but don't wear them well do a disservice to us all. Plus I can put someone's eye out with my 5 inch stiletto heel if I have to.

Oh crap, my inner feminist is coming out. No, high heels are wrong, they are designed by men to objectify women, they subjugate us by preventing us from moving freely. Excuse me, I have to go smother her in my shoe closet.

Isn't he referring to the pointiness of the toe? There's nothing inherently sexy about that. Many high heels have normal rounded toes, thank heavens.

Posted by keshmeshi | June 3, 2008 4:31 PM

Stina it just me or is that an extremely sexy name? @5: you win! I didn't notice feet at all until reading the comments.

Posted by Gabe | June 3, 2008 4:31 PM

@9 & 12

Presumably he's talking about the point at the toe ends of her ridiculously long clown shoes, not the ones on her heels.

Posted by Bison | June 3, 2008 4:34 PM

A good friend hit me on the head with her stiletto heel hard enough to bend it at a 20-degree angle once, after I grabbed her ass really hard.

Posted by Fnarf | June 3, 2008 4:41 PM

Pointy shoes are fine. They are so fine, in fact, that they are a 3xinfinity improvment over Crocs &etc.

Style and fashion and aesthetics and... get over it.

Max Solomon: As much as I've enjoyed your riding me since I published my masculinity article, I do have to say that, as others pointed out, I'm referring to the toe, not the heel. But thanks for trying to train me in the ways of being a man. Stud.

Posted by Paul Constant | June 3, 2008 4:46 PM

Actually, if you are into feet you probably wouldn't favor pointy shoes, as pointy shoes are not very kind to toes.

Posted by The Artist Formerly Known As Sigourney Beaver | June 3, 2008 4:49 PM

Stina has a face!

...and a blog. There's more to this girl than an ass some shoes. BTW Paul, 2 posts in 1 day about sexy librarians is a very manly thing. I suggest more of it.

Posted by Gabe | June 3, 2008 4:55 PM

@18 Well, never mind what I said then, I thought you meant the whole high heels being sexy thing.

I have mixed feelings about pointy toes, especially because of that whole toe cleavage thing which I think just looks weird.

p.s. I am indescribably jealous of your haul from the bookseller's convention and if you need any help finding readers for any of them I would gladly walk uphill both ways in my 5-inchers to help you out.

Though I'm Swedish, this woman is way hotter than the last post (in my opinion).

Posted by Aaron Edge | June 3, 2008 5:40 PM

I kinda like the ladies in the last post. While this fine woman is undoubtedly hot, they had this individual, confident, less posed air about them that was incredibly attractive.

Posted by Gloria | June 3, 2008 5:55 PM

I read the rather unique name in #14 and thought, "No, it can't be...", but sure enough, I went to high school with the lovely Ms Clintock.

She was smart--brilliant, even--with a biting wit, a great sense of humor, and a totally cute space between her two front teeth. She played the flute, loved quad shot lattes any hour of the day, and could probably throw down on a u-substitution like nobody's business.

Naturally, I had a crush on her. Alas, she was a senior and I was a freshman with a squeaky voice. I don't know how sincere she was, but she told me to drop her a line when I graduated high school.

I never did.

Ditto @5, and the pic was taken @ King County Law Library.

Posted by Mike of Renton | June 3, 2008 10:29 PM

Err... Ms *McClintock*.

Posted by w7ngman | June 3, 2008 11:05 PM

I still think the Swedish librarian featured in the 5th pic is hotter:)

But that's just me.

Posted by Gabe | June 3, 2008 11:25 PM

Well, my ass is only as good as the person taking this we better give props to the photographer (and equally as ass-tastic) Tina Ching.

Posted by Stina | June 4, 2008 10:37 PM

stina - you so hot girrrrrl - your ass & sexy name deserves all the press it can get. love you!

Posted by ann | June 5, 2008 9:18 AM
