Isn’t it obvious?

these boots were made for walking

  1. Lyle’s suggestion had occurred to me.
    Nick’s had not, although I’ve read the book of the same name.
    Ade is spot on.
    Kate’s I hadn’t thought of.
    Adrian is just being sleazy.
    Doctor P’s second comment is simply inappropriate.

  2. I thought had it in the bag. These Boots Were Made For Walking always reminds me of the time I saw it performed by the transvestite cabaret at Funny Girls in Blackpool.

  3. Or “I thought Lyle had it in the bag” even. Must not post when incapable of typing properly…

  4. “These Boots Were Made For Walking” will, in my memory, always be performed by the duet of Boy George and Lily Savage. Pride ’95, I think – might’ve been ’96.
    Either way, it was one of those things that you just know will alter the song forever…

  5. I think someone needs to point this out Karen, and by the look of things, it will have to be me.
    Those boots are categorically not made for walking, in fact, quite the opposite.
    You admit this.
    They do not look at all practical for a jaunt across the cairngorms, for example, or even a Sunday afternoon stroll along the beach. Had you posted a picture of some of the hardier products from, say, Head or Kangol, then I think Ade might be rightfully be able to claim being right.
    I think, as an independent adjudicator, I should award Lyle the kudos of being correct.
    Thank you.

  6. Just cos Lyle knows a good pair of boots when he sees a rather blurry photo of them, doesn’t make him right. I put the answer in the alt tag, though, so it didn’t take a rocket scientist to work it out. Sorry Ade.

  7. *sigh* I didn’t even look at the alt tag.
    I need to get out less.

  8. So you did. I hadn’t noticed. That was the only song I could think of after Kinky Boots had gone.
