"They're Manolo Blahnik," he said. "Couture velvet Hush Puppies. He used to make my women's shoes, and he made these for me." Broadway's Tommy Tune received another award for being an all-around stylish fellow. Adolph Green's take on the award was a philosophical one -- "We all make shoes, in one way or another."
