Jazzy Loafer Shelf Decor

Dancing Shoe Bookends Look Like Classically Designed Oxfords

— November 8, 2012 — Art & Design
Jazz up your boring bookshelf with this Pair of Dancing Shoe Bookends by Sterling Home.

In black and white, these bookends make for a very classy pair of traditional Oxford men's shoes. While you can't actually dance in these Oxfords, you may want to try as they look quite realistic. They are fully detailed with design elements such as the wingtip toes, the perforated leather appearance, small cord laces and a bit of a heel at the end. With one shoe tapping the other, it appears as though these bookends are in the middle of a dance sequence.

Add some classic footwear flair to any old stack of books with the Pair of Dancing Shoe Bookends.
