Mary Janes

John Marine | 10:07 AM | |
Mary janes are my favorite feminine shoes. They are a simple slip-on shoe secured by one or more straps. They are worn on various females ranging from babies to grown adults. They are absolutely timeless and classic shoes. This blog post is a celebration of mary jane shoes. If you enjoy these shoes as I do, I think you'll love this blog post. This blog post is named after a post from "John's Blog Space" made available for here on "StyleSpace, by John B. Marine."

PERSONAL NOTE: Because of recent PC/online troubles, I went on a blogging hiatus to work on my computer. I may return to a more regular schedule if I am able to successfully resolve these issues I'm facing with my PC.

Let me show you an example of a mary jane to set the mood of this blog post...

^ from: - Here is a mary jane at its most basic- a slip-on with at least one strap fastened to a buckle.

Mary janes offer a design and a level of comfort that has remained classic for a very long time. A mary jane is a slip-on shoe or pump that is secured with one strap. There are other variations of mary janes that feature certain strap designs. For instance, some mary janes have two straps, a T-strap, or even more straps. Some mary janes may have various other touches to them- among others: slingback design, peep-toe/open-toe design, wedge designs, platforms, platform wedge designs, heelless, and the like. I personally tend to love more schoolgirl-like mary janes.

According to the Wikipedia entry on mary jane shoes, the mary jane namesake was based on a character named Mary Jane from the "Buster Brown" comic strip from back in 1902. While mary janes may seem exclusively feminine, males have even worn these shoes ranging from boys to royal male figures.

What I love most about mary janes are just how timeless and classic they look. They don't have to be some overly flamboyant shoes with loud designs or anything really fierce. Mary janes are just very simple shoes that deliver immense beauty. Mary jane pumps just kick up the appeal of an average pair of mary janes. These shoes can be paired with almost any sort of casual outfit or even with some dressy outfits. They are certainly okay to wear if you go to schools that require some kind of uniform code. Your options will vary, but don't overlook those cute mary janes.

Mary Janes are a great style for heels - the strap helps provide a secure fit and prevent slippage. They are superb with pencil skirts for a retro feel.
