Thirteen Thursday: 13 Blue and/or Suede Shoes

Historically speaking, March 5th is a great day to wear army boots or blue suede shoes, since on this date in 1960, Elvis Presley was discharged from the army after finishing his two-year stint in Germany.  The King wasn’t exactly roughing it in the army– he lived off-base, surrounded by family and friends.  Still, he completed his duty at a pivotal point in his career, spending two years away from a nation of swooning teenage girls that couldn’t get enough of the 20-something heart-throb from Mississippi.  So on this day when Elvis traded in his army-issue Big Boots for his old Blue Suede Shoes, Shoeflyer is featuring blue suede shoes. And since it’s Thursday, why not make it a baker’s dozen?

So, with Spring ’09 trends in mind, I’m on the lookout for anything blue and/or a little furry.

Elvis’ taste lives on, apparently… light blue suede shooties trod the catwalks of New York’s Fashion Week.
