What Does the Shoe Representing Your Home State Look Like?

The Miss America pageant is being held tonight in Las Vegas. To prepare for the event, the Paris casino featured custom pairs of shoes inspired by each of the states and designed in part by the Misses themselves. This AP article gives us a couple of details – the Connecticut shoe had a basketball hoop on it as a shoutout to the UConn women’s basketball team; the Louisiana shoe had a Mardi Gras theme – but a sad dearth of pictures. I’m going to assume that the shoe for my home state of North Carolina featured a heel shaped like a giant cigarette.

If you could design a shoe for your own home state or province, what would it look like and why?

    Illinois: corn husk all over with a sparkly on the toe to represent Chicago.

    I’m from Wisconsin, so there would probably be some cheese on there..

    Wisconsin: wedges with a cheese-wedge for the wedge part and cow-print on the rest of the shoe.

    Ohio: a buckeye symbol (or at least a Block O for Ohio State) would be mandatory…

    I am from Texas. They would be the biggest cowboy boots you ever saw. Probably made of rattle snake and they would have huge Texas flags on them in red, white and blue rhinestones. We put Texas flags every where.

    New York is too easy, so I’d say a birkenstock with either a ram or a buff on it for Colorado. Because that’s really all I see here.

      Not everyone in Colorado is from Boulder.
