Mary Jane Shoes For Men
Is there any prettier shoe than the Mary Jane? That shiny patent leather gleaming on one's feet with conservative charm makes for an unmistakable shoe sensation. Mary Janes are both comfortable and cute, and the perfect shoe for men who like to wear women's shoes.
Why? Many reasons really, Mary Janes have become an icon for a pure kind of femininity, but there's so much more to them than the winsome images of yesteryear. Mary Janes have evolved with the years, becoming a shoe for all ages. In some cases the low heel has evolved into a stiletto high heel that elevates the innocent shoe into a saucy statement.
For many men who like to wear women's shoes, the act of slipping into women's shoes is about capturing an essence of the feminine. For this reason high heels are often favored as they are well established icons of female footwear.
The Mary Jane has a similar place in the psyche of Western Society, and slipping into a pair of Mary Janes can have a psychological effect that reaches far beyond the mere leather and stitching that holds the shoes together. Mary Jane shoes really are more than the sum of their parts.
Don't believe me? The Duchess, Fergie even wrote a song about Mary Jane shoes which featured the lyrics:
“When I wear - my Mary Jane's shoes
I can escape - from a blues
The whole world seems a little bit brighter, brighter
My heavy steps get a little bit louder, louder”
de la Renta Mary Jane Shoes
Pop music has a reputation for being generally shallow, but I think Fergie has actually tapped into something here. Whether you're a woman or a man, I think there is something freeing about wearing a pair of Mary Jane shoes.
If you doubted their importance in the world of fashion, consider this: Oscar de la Renta makes Mary Janes, so does Dr Marten. Two major companies both tapping into the power of what was once a shoe reserved for children. Those little shoes have definitely grown up over the decades however, perhaps as a direct result of the demand of those who wore them when young and weren't ready to sacrifice those precious Mary Jane shoes to the memories of childhood.
So if you're looking for a special woman's shoe. A shoe that means something, a shoe that will touch your heart, not just your feet, try a pair of Mary Jane shoes
