You thought we had finished with the footwear theme? Think again.

piano shoes

These belong to the South Africa-born, US-based pianist Petronel Malan.  They looked great in the window, but sadly she can’t play in them. We know one or two label PRs who would give their lunch account to walk out in those.

    Petronel, if anyone in the world could wear those shoes without breaking their neck, it’s you, skattie! Pedalling would be another story……..

  • KarenB says:

    I love ‘me!!! They wouldn’t work very well for the organ or piano, but they’d be absolutely great for singing – the only “upside” to singing from a wheelchair!

    Loved to tease Petronel that she had earned a “blackbelt in Shopping” and equal to her musicianship and grea t”chops”Justin Kolb.
