Penny's fashionable shoe

Penny and I walked with a friend along the delightful O'Shannassy Aqueduct Trail above Warburton yesterday. My friend, more fashion conscious than I am (as you'd realise if you've seen any of my YouTube clips, almost everyone in the developed world is more fashion conscious than I am), commented on Penny's up-to-date blue pump.

Given that I don't even know what a pump is, I looked for a definition and found this one:
Pumps are one of the most popular styles of women's shoes, and they're also one of the most difficult to define. In their most basic form, pumps have closed backs, and low-cut fronts that hit closer to the toes than they do the top of the foot.
I leave it to you to decide whether Penny seems to be wearing pumps:
What actually happened was that as Penny walked, the Pawz shoe, which looks like nothing so much as a deflated balloon, folded itself around her foot. It seems that as the rubber ages, it gets kind of sticky, like old balloons do. Whatever the reason, Penny finds the shoe comfortable and it protects her foot.

Love the pointy toe, Penny. You are looking VERY grown-up!

Cardells, and Mitch and Molly, that particular shoe is out of the story now. One family member who is less observant than I am took her for a walk and when they arrived home her foot was naked!

However, there are eleven more shoes in the packet, so all is not lost.

Penny you look like a fashion model showing off your shoe! I think the color blue is definately your color Penny!

Kari, and Lassie and Benjie, she did look like a model, I agree. I think it was a good shoe because she was so relaxed about wearing it.
