The Most Delicious Footwear

by Matt on September 22, 2008

I'm currently hosting two lovely Mallorquinos for the next two weeks. Because they know my love of Spain and also because they're great adorable guys they arrived bearing gifts. But not just any gifts. Gifts from their home in Palma De Mallorca.

Ladies and gents, I give you the most amazing pair of Camper sandals EVER.


Yes, that's right. Pa Amb Oli shoes. For the uninitiated, that's a photo of bread that's been rubbed with a sliced tomato, olive oil, and topped with ham, cheese, olives, and just about anything else you want to add.

I've never had a pair of shoes make me so utterly hungry.

If I had these shoes I would feel so bad about always putting my foot in my mouth! LOL

Oh maaan. I’ve been reading for a while and am a staunch non-commenter.

…And then you posted about Camper flips combined with TAPAS.

Good god. Pan Am Oli (pan tumaca for this MadrileƱa)…breakfast of champions. And Camper makes simply PHENOMENAL footwear.

Enjoy them! They’re great!

I recently wrote a post about a Greek version of the meal that’s on your new footwear, called “riganada”. My family makes during the summer, when its hot and miserable, and the sun is too blistering to hit the beaches. Here’s the link:

Now that you have them at home tell them to teach you how to make “Tombet”: it’s a delicious mix of fried potatoes, with tomato sauce and peppers typical from Mallorca. By the way really nice shoes!

Love the shoes!

By the way, congrats on the tv special!

Oh, and, I’M from Spain – from the peninsula, though, not Mallorca. It’s beautiful though – went there a few years ago.
