You could write all day long about the shoes worn on the streets of New York and I'm sure many blogs are dedicated to just that. Last week we were in blistering heat followed by torrential rains. So loads of gladiator sandals, followed by what we kiwis call gumboots (rainboots). The couple below are ready for rain, him in crocs, or shine, she in ladylike white pumps. Pic below them of young parents shows the mother wearing the most colorful and unusual of all the gladiator sandals.
