It's time for another Vegas themed post and today we take our shoe inspiration from the most well-known Vegas headliners.

We start with the granddaddy of them all, Elvis

Channeling our inner-Elvis for shoe inspiration proves relatively easy.  This is, after all, the man that sang about blue suede shoes.

Wear these Manolo Blahnik BB Suede shoes up and down the Vegas Strip and at the end of the night your hound dogs will be barking too.  So make sure you have shoe inserts.

Speaking of blue, our next inspiration comes from the Blue Man Group.

I don't think I could ever go see the Blue Man Group, I'd get kicked out for laughing because I cannot see them without thinking of Tobias from Arrested Development.  However, I can still appreciate the group with these Blue Leather Neve boots from Senso.

You can't talk Vegas inspiration without mentioning Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton.

Wayne's casually styled tux brings to mind the Jiver cut out spectator pumps from Anyi Lu.

Classic with a twist.

Vegas wouldn't be Vegas without a Carrot Top sighting.

After you stop screaming in horror and come back to your computer screen ease your eyes with these carrot orange booties from Giusseppe Zannoti for Christopher Kane.

Vegas is possibly the only place in the world where magic shows are still awesome.  First we have the legends Siegfried & Roy whose use of albino Tigers and sparkling metallic costumes help bring a sense of wonder to all the performances.

They are the perfect inspiration for these metallic silver booties from United Nude that have stripes reminiscent of their tigers.

Last, but certainly not least we have the wickedly funny Penn and Teller.

The masters of illusion and tricks make me think of these Bench Boots from Jeffrey Campbell.

This shoe always leaves me wondering about the wearer, "How do they do that?"
