June 23, 2012 - Twitter Pumps



These special pumps were designed for the Twitter-addicted bride in mind, adding the "something blue" to the wedding ensemble.

See more at Bit Rebels.

They're lovely.





[eta] every time I hear 'pumps' as a description for those kinds of shoes it sounds odd. What comes to mind for me with that description are these:

Here, I think we call those clodhoppers (n. 3. a coarse, heavy shoe, like a plowman's).

You haven't lived until you've seen Clodfobble in clodhoppers.

I think the Twitter pumps may be a rip off of the Two Turtledoves pumps.



DanaC  Saturday Jun 23 06:45 PM

Clodhoppers are big shoes and boots with thick soles. Those up there are canvass plimsolls. Thin little things. Made for running helter skelter across a school gym :p



Sundae  Tuesday Jun 26 11:08 AM

I love those shoes even though they are way too high for me.

When I read the word pump I think of farts.
Not used in my part of the world, but Ant & Dec used it on SM:TV Live frequently.

(NB the above was a live children's Saturday morning show, it's not intended to be Clevah British Comedy)

I was just looking for a simple pair of navy blue pumps (for work)...navy blue is hard to find, really.

There are some of the most goddawful ugly stupid shoes out there. I doubt I even wear them when I get fired and have to start hooking.

you're thinking of Chuck Taylors, or Chucks. From Converse.

That must be where I've been going wrong......

*snort*



@ Sundae: I also have that meaning come to mind as well. the two are very much linked as childhood concepts.



Aliantha  Wednesday Jun 27 07:10 PM

I love those shoes!
