We've all seen the fabulous Miu Miu glitter booties a thousand times by now, and I think somehow all that glitter is seeping into the collective unconscious and making us think glitter on our feet is not only ok, but desirable even. I am aware that I am not Dorothy in Oz, or a stripper, or a beauty pagent contestant; it is absolutely not normal for me to want glittery shoes. And yet, I want some. There you have it, proof that we are all connected, as demonstrated through irrational sartorial cravings.
But maybe there's a more subtle way indulge these urges, just a touch of sparkle in the back...
Anyone else feel a DIY coming? See more inspiration after the jump...

Kind of awesome, right? (Sorry I can't find the original source on those, if anyone knows please let me know!).
So, glitter or not? Will you or won't you? I think I definitely will be trying out some subtle version in a DIY form this fall. That is, as subtle as gluing glitter to your shoes can be.
