Boots and Shoes that we wish we owned?

142 posts in this topic

This is a topic for us to reveal those shoes and boots that we wish to own. It may be the footwear we plan to purchase? Or just dream of? Or perhaps the ones that got away? Those Boots and Shoes that were missed at the sale? Or the style we discovered only at the end of the season? Perhaps they were too expensive? Or maybe they didn't have our size? Or possibly it's that favourite pair that just wore out and couldn't be replaced...

We've all been there... So please share your thoughts and pictures here...

I don't have to wish to much I suppose as I know what I really would like to have. That would be some stretch patent thigh highs with a 6 inch heal and a 2 in platform that are snug around the upper thigh and do not require zippers to put them on. I've seen them but at the current prices it'll be many years from now before I could get them.

Really would like some Christian Louboutin pumps but it is just to much to spend on one pair of shoes for me.

I have a few on the wish list, but I'll start with these...

Palmero pull-on knee boots from a couple of years ago. The ones that got away... :roll:

Hey robbiehhw, is there a particular pair of Louboutins? Could you share a pic?

Cheers

In general, I never know what I wished I owned until I see it. I have several things on the ebay watch list that I never knew I wished for. I guess the thing I'm constantly looking for is a pair of black patent leather oxfords with a 5 inch heel. You would think this would not be that hard to find, but apparently it is. You see, I want to actually wear these as-of-yet-imaginary shoes with a tuxedo. There is no shortage of black patent leather oxfords, but they usually fall into one of two categories, neither of which I'm looking for. The first is rather conservative styled shoes (i.e., round or almond toe with little decoration), which is exactly what I'm looking for, but without fail this style features heels which are lower than my expectations. 4 inch seems to be the max, and it's often lower than that. The second common option has heels plenty high enough, but the styling falls squarely on the fetish side of things, with a super pointy toe and other subtle things about them that just are not what I want to wear with a tux. Or maybe ever.

I am also always on the prowl for any type of backless (mule or slide) sandal. But not too frilly, while at the same time, not too clunky. I'll know it when I see it.

I'm extremely curious myself. I've seen the videos on heels.com  of them and they look fairly  normal  to me.

There's a video in the link of them being worn.

Okay, I agree there have many pairs of boots and shoes that have gone away and sent to the history books.

I would love to spring for Louboutins, as the styles are changing now, however this one (picture) was the one I craved the most...

These are shoes I wished I still owned, although I would only now wear them for special dress up occasions. There used to be a company called Wild Pair and back in the day they sold really high shoes, which I wanted/needed! Pardon the picture, but this is almost an exact pair I wore every day in high school, much to my father's chagrin. I had them in virtually every color. They would kill my feet but I needed the height. After high school I wised up and discovered slides which I can wear all day without a problem.

Not where I grew up. Some did, but far from all. It really blows my mind you wore such cfm heels on a regular basis in high school,  especially with metal floor killing heels. You had to have been very popular. 

I have a couple old wild pair now and even though I wear stilettos often in public in male attire I still don't wear the metal heels out and about.

I have a couple pair of metal tips on boots and i have wore them out. (Wore them out on the town not wore them out needing replacement )They sound awesome on the hard surfaces!!!  I was just looking on line at replacement metal tips even though i don't need to replace them,,,,,, just want to! LOL

They are a bit like a colander, so just watch you don't strain something when you're wearing them ;)

I totally agree with you CAT on how awesome the sound of metal heel tips are!!! My girlfriend and I went for a walk Saturday evening and the sound of my metal tip stilettos were so much louder than her plastic tip stilettos!!! I loved it and so did she ☺
