I can't deny that each morning when I wake up, comb my hair back, and keep my pompadour plastered in place with pomade, I owe a debt of style to the one and only, Mr. Elvis Aaron Presley. What's also undeniable is that the King's legacy inspired Jeffrey Campbell
to create these fanatastic flats. So, when I saw these blue beauties arrive, it was one for the money, two for the show, and three to get ready to go writing about them. I mean they're blue-suede-shoes! How could I possibly resist writing about them? Three of rock's most righteous played a part in the genesis of a song named after this very same style of footwear. First, Johnny Cash planted the idea of a blue suede shoe-wearing airman he met in the military into the head of Carl Perkins, who then reluctantly wrote a song about shoes that later became a tune most famously performed by Elvis Presley. Now, much like the little boogie woogie number became a high-selling hit for the King, you can top the charts of retro fashion when you slip on these lace-ups that combine the crepe sole of creepers with the pointed toe of winklepickers, creating a 1950's Teddy Girl style that any songster would sing praises over. When you combine them with skinny jeans, a sharp blazer, and feminine neckerchief, you can do anything you want, like perform on stage with your band, or visit the historical sites of Memphis, such as Graceland and Sun Studios (and let me tag along). Just - whatever you do - don't let anyone step on your blue suede shoes! - Richard, Fashion Writer
