    So I was doing some late night online shoe shopping when I came across THESE.

    They have my name in the title, and after a quick google search I still can't find out why. :woo: To me it doesn't make any sense to stick a name in the middle of a shoe description, unless maybe they have some connection to Cerys Mathews? Anyone have a clue?

    (Disclaimer: I'm pretty bored right now :p:)

    Sometimes they call shoes by random names to make them sound more feminine/ makes you want to buy them more? I guess it's similar to calling a phone 'Chocolate' etc.

    Theyre called peep toes cos your toes peep out the front.

    On boohoo.com they use random names a lot. I'm waiting for something with my name on and I'm stupid enough to buy it.

    Hopefully they create a sexy Stacey dress or a fabulous Stacey clutch. :love:

    My military boots are called Nigella.

    It's pretty standard practise to give shoes names, it's like a style number or product number.
