The Shoes of Glee

It’s been too long! Glee was back this week with a new episode, following a much, much too long hiatus. Tuesdays just are as inspirational, witty or energized without the McKinley High kids to look forward to. Can you tell I’m a self-asserted Gleek? If so, I hope that means you are too! If not, you better have a darn good excuse for missing this musical magic each week. Fox, Tuesdays nights at 8 Eastern/7 Central. Check it out.

Skechers Shape Ups Action Packed

Glee has garnered a lot of attention in the past few years. It was an out-of-the-box idea that really caught on and has yet to give up its hold on a lot of people. Although much has been written about Glee’s musical feuds, on-set romantic squabbles and controversial photo shoots, our very own fashionista Anna recently passed on an article with a new twist. Thankfully, it combined the show with another one of my favorite things – shoes!

Frye Heath Boot

Lou Eyrich, a costume designer for the show, recently gave an interview to Footwear News about the footwear fashion on the show. According to the article, the cast normally sports Converse shoes, but heels aren’t out of the questions – as long as they aren’t any higher than 3 inches. I guess that makes sense. If you spend your days singing and dancing, comfort is going to have to come first at times! Luckily, there are a ton of cute shoes with lower heels out there right now.

Bass Beacon Hill Loafer

Eyrich & Footwear News also share some information about the specific shoes and brands worn by the cast. Among some of the looks that you can steal are: Sue’s affinity to Skecher Shape-Ups, Puck’s tough-guy Frye boots & Rachel’s prim Bass loafers. Now that I know how much thought goes into the group’s shoe selections, I’ll have to remember to keep an eye out for fun new styles. Wish me luck!


Is it just me, or does Kevin McHale look like Ryan from The Office in the picture above? McHale did make an appearance on the show a few years ago. See if you can spot him!
