Armadillo Shoes

We missed our chance for a really avant-garde fashion when we dispatched recently-caught armadillos to the armadillo graveyard across the highway. Buffy got in trouble for crossing the highway to bring back a somewhat petrified armadillo shell to use as a dog toy. I buried it; she dug it up.
Anyhow, here's the link to Armadillo Shoes by Alexander McQueen.

The shoes sold for thousands and few were made. Difficulty in walking made them less popular than they might have been despite the price. Maybe nobody told the models that armadillos when frightened run away on their little piggy-like tippy toes.

I've seen armadillo purses on e-bay. They hardly have the panache of alligator bags from the '40s.

We still have the trap set if you want to sign up for your very own armadillo. We don't ship, you will have to pick him up. Ewwwww!

  1. I definitely want a southwest Georgia armadillo, but I want mine alive.
