A set of fine crystal glasses in the shapes of beautiful, sexy high heel shoes.

(I've always been fascinated as to how one drinks champagne from a shoe, so this would make it easier.)

I guess this is Baked by Cinderella!!

       The whole drinking-from-the-shoe business is very odd. It's quite a major kink, if you think about it, yet has made it into mainstream films since the 1930s.

       I don't like champagne, it always tastes like washing up liquid to me (don't ask!). I've never really understood why women want to torture themselves by wearing high heels either. Just thought I'd share that with the group.

       When I was abou 16 I had a job working behind the bar of my local pub. A smartly dressed man came in with his friends, took off one shoe and put it on the counter and asked me to fill it up, saying that whenever he bought a new pair of shoes he would drink a beer out of it. I replied that I was only allowed, by law, to sell beer in authorised half pint and pint glasses. I sold him a pint, and I think he did then pour it into his shoe and drink it...

       Well, I can't see how this wouldn't be better than drinking out of a smelly shoe!! (funny story [hippo])
and [DrBob] one could drink something else from them...they aren't for wearing!

       There's a plastic cowboy-boot drinking glass in my house somewhere.

       Far too elegant not to be sorta baked m'dear. [link]   

       Wow, thanks for the link Randy! My search did not return that! At least it's a good idea but the autoboner doesn't like it!! haha

       Autoboner only drinks whine.   

       I looked for vid of old-movie drinking from a shoe, but had no immediate luck. I imagine you could stand the shoe up as worn, pour the glug into the toe/ball of the foot compartment, and drink by holding the spike as a wineglass stem and sipping from the heel cup--tilting carefully to slosh the wash across the instep area (which would maximise beverage-to-leather contact). [2 fries]'s link looks to support that method.

       There's a reference by Tom Lehrer to "drinking stale champagne from sweaty slippers". Can anyone remember the context?

       Dunno if Tom Lehrer said that, but he did something like, "I drank champagne from your shoe, tra-la-la. I didn't know, when I lifted that cup, it had taken two bottles to fill the thing up." Wienerschitzel Waltz, I think it was.
