Re-mix Introduces The Lindy

Re-mix Lindy!

Re-mix Lindy!

When one door closes, another one opens…I have long been mourning the loss of Dancestore.com’s Mary Jane wedge, which I own in black and red and are staples of my weekly dance wardrobe and what I would choose to put on my feet at the end of a long dance weekend for some comfort. They are down to the last two sizes in brown and appear to be phasing out wedges altogether (I love you Rugcutters!), which left me in a bit of a panic, as my wedges are definitely 5+ years into their lives with signs of abuse/love – what would I get to eventually replace them?

As if Re-mix Vintage Shoes read my mind, they brought back their very own Mary Jane wedge, now with an enclosed heel, and named it Lindy. It took me a little while to warm up to dancing in Re-mix wedges, as I found them stiff at first, but then I wore a pair of their Spectator wedges to a Lindy bomb at a bar and they were everything – street shoes and dance shoes, flexibility, security, and with that wedge sole I could plow through every inconsistency in that concrete floor. For me, the more closed-heeled Re-mix wedges have been more secure for my feet for dancing, which is why I am excited about the Lindy – perhaps they got feedback from dancers about which wedges they prefer and made this closed heel modification to the style just for us? I’d like to think so. 🙂

Tomorrow (Wednesday, March 21, 2012), Lindy Dandy and I will be special guests on the next #lindychat, the “worldwide Twitter chat for Lindy Hoppers.” We’ll be chatting for an hour, starting at 6:00 p.m. EST, about swing dance clothing, shoes, fashion, and all things related. Bring your questions, your insight, or just come and enjoy the discussion!

How do you #lindychat? #lindychat founder Rebecca Brightly has created a helpful How To page on the #lindychat website with some great tips on how to interact, but essentially you will need a Twitter account and will need to run a search for the hashtag #lindychat to see what is going on.

Looking forward to seeing everyone online tomorrow! I’ll be tweeting as @lindyshopper and Lindy Dandy will be tweeting as @MQAvatar.
