    they could always draw a picture of the shoe. But, if you’re handicapped in that area, then i guess they’re out of luck.

    Love your blog!

    Ha! Good question! Colour laser copy print-outs from your digi camera just doesn’t have the same appeal, does it?

    So sad that polaroids will be no more. I always wanted to buy one, but now I’ve left it too late…

    Print out the shoe portraits from Zappos? Cut out catalog or magazine images? Cry?

    I read somewhere (a newspaper, I believe) that another company is going to produce the film…but I can’t tell for sure.

    Dig back through their memories, I suspect. I tried that once, but my photography was so bad, I just gave up.

    then i will take digital pic of shoes and copy and paste 4 pairs of shoes into one pic to print out. it really help me keeping track of my shoes.

    I haven’t been using Polaroids for a while. I have a camera that bluetooths the image to a small printer and I use that when I’m at shows or castings. It’s a bit bigger than a Polaroid.

    Of course there is something very romantic about the Polaroid!

    I hear you. But also–someone lovely (I forget who, alas) was posting photos of special homes on her blog and the images had to be subitted via Polaroid. I couldn’t imagine where to find one! (OK–eBay . . .)

    The only woman I’ve know who actually did that was an effing psychopath and horrible on every level.

    I think it would be pretty darn adorable if they got a kid to draw a picture of it!

    I would never waste film on that, I would take quick 4×6 snap shots, have them printed @ a pharmacy, and be on my merry way. Yes it doesn’t look as cool, but Polaroids aren’t meant to be on shoe boxes :'(
