The Master of Shoes is inspired by Charles Perrault's 1697 French fairy tale "Le Maître Chat ou Le Chat Botté" — the "The Master Cat or Puss in Boots."

The Master of Shoes is used in ankle boots and court shoes to maintain their shape.

It keeps them from wrinkling, falling over and messing up the hallway.

With its ear-like shape, the Master also creates a playful atmosphere.

Material: Laser-cut birch plywood

Made in Iceland by Faerid.

An 1889 English translation from "The Blue Fairy Book" is here.

Read it in the original French here.

A French audio version is here.

I appear to have digressed.

The boot accessory costs $100.

I went to WalMart, bought poster boards for $.99 each, rolled and taped them, cut them down a little and, presto, my boots stand erect in the closet.

Darn, I knew that, but I thought it was too easy! I still like my idea better...
