Shoes can tell you a lot about love.

It was a lovely pair that felt disjointed. One pair said ‘VE’ and the other ‘LO.’ The letters were fashioned from different fabrics – textured plaid, leather, and corduroy. Dark chocolate became the backdrop for the four-letter word that ran across each curved toe.

At first glance, you might say that they’re slightly schizophrenic, but you can’t deny that underneath all the trimmings, is a pair of shoes that made perfect sense as one. Even after spending time apart, each foot ahead of the other, they will eventually sit side-by-side at rest.

It is a pair that has no meaning when they’re not together.

To Gino, the VE to my LO.
