an excerpt from “wicked”

“Whatever may have happened to the original shoes, everyone remembered them as beautiful, even stunning.  Well-fashioned name-brand imitations were always available and never went out of style for very long.  The shoes or  their replicas, with their suggestion of residual magic, cropped up at so many public ceremonies that, like the relics of saints, they began to multiply to fill the need.”
