Rship. What woman couldn't use another pair of shoes. Think I will go for it with my 1970's Norma Kamali 5 inch heels, that is if I don't break my neck first.

Take a look at the photos already posted. You don't need to be in the shoes, or walk while wearing them. You only need to submit a photo of the shoes

Ps. Yakster, the Show~Us~Your~Shoes tradition began in the 70s, so your 70s shoes just might have an edge over the others. And this article on Show~Us~Your~Shoes was penned by someone you know outinjersey.net/index.php…

Thanks for the nice links, but I heard the "shoe request" was really to see more leg back then?

Good Luck YAKSTER!

Weeeeeell, years ago. The Philly gay bars used to send down busloads of men in tight jeans and neatly trimmed moustaches just for the Show~Us~Your~Shoes parade. And the last time I went on one of these deluxe open~bar buses, the media had not yet embraced the name Show~Us~Your~Shoes parade. And despite that many contestants didn't know about men in tight jeans and neatly trimmed moustaches screaming 'show us your shoes', in order for the contestants, sitting in the backs of convertibles, to show the festive audience their shoes, it requires the contestants to lift their legs above their head ~ which may be considered unladylike. Anyways, since many contestants are in evening gowns, the most you get to see is maybe a calf & ankle. But it's always a grand old time.

@tship- we are at Shiwboat for the weekend celebrating Tom's Friday the 13th birthday. I hate to sound ignorant, but where is the parade on Saturday? I may have missed some posts.

The parade begins 5pm Saturday all the way up at Rhode Island Ave on the boardwalk, so this parade will also pass in front of Revel. And it ends at Albany Ave [Rt40 aka Black Horse Pike]. I had read in the Press of AC, hardcopy, that there will be 4000 participants in this year's parade, and they expect it to last 2hrs. Since non~subscribers are only allowed a small amount of article viewings a month, I found alternate newsstories thealternativepress.com/articles/a-miss-amer… and nola.com/tv/index.ssf/2013/07/along_with_mis… not that either link gives any info on the true origins of Show~Us~Your~Shoes.

And I found a thread tripadvisor.com/…52339939 >>The Press of AC had two articles, one stating there will be 4000 participants, including Miss America 1964 [I bet she's still hot], and it's expected to be 2hrs long. And another stating that chairs will be allowed at the free viewing areas, so you are allowed to BYOC [bring your own chair].

And the best spot will probably be by Boardwalk Hall as there will be live entertainment at Kennedy Plaza. And there most likely wont be any free viewing areas there. I am guessing the marching bands, dance troupes, choirs, etc will most likely be pausing to perform in front of the paid seating bleachers and not so much at the free viewing areas<<

I certainly plan on it. And I'm planning to scope out the bleachers on the boardwalk earlier in the day to seek out a spot to BYOC [free] and watch the parade. I am hoping for a spot near New York Ave to relive the old days. And of course I'll need time earlier in the day for something else ~ ya know: to trim my moustache neatly
