Make all the “Fetish” jokes you want, but we here at the Riot HQ have a thing for bookish shoes. Heels, flats, sandals, sneakers…you name ’em, if they’ve got a literary twist, we’ll wear ’em. Some of these have been featured in past Book Fetish articles, but there are some new kicks here as well.
For the writers out there, some spare pages for you:
