  1. Found these while browsing Nordstrom Rack. I had stopped going there as they severely reduced the inventory of heels in my size last year. I had a stop close by so I walked over to kill some time. Sure enough, there were no size 13's at all, & very few in size 12's, none of them I cared for. These caught my eye on the size 11 rack as I walked by them as the color quite stood out to me. I just got in a satin cowl neck blouse in that exact shade of orange & thought these wedges would have looked cute paired with the top. I started to leave when I thought I would try them just to see how the color worked with my skin tone. I was pleasantly surprised to find I could get my feet completely into them, with just a smidge of tightness across my toes. Checked the price & they were only $28, so I took them home. I wore them to dinner tonight & they felt pretty good, the snugness seems to have kept the strap from chewing up my toes, like most of my strappy heels do. Gonna try a longer outing & see how that goes, but so far these are a winner. Brand: BP. Giana Platform Wedge Sandal In Coral Camelia - 4" w/1" platform

  3. I found this picture taken in mid-August which shows off my Bruno Magli "Kira" wedges, pictured by themselves not far above. I had sole protectors put on these, since the stock leather soles are almost comically thin. I cannot comment whether it has made a difference in comfort or not, since I didn't dare wear the shoes outside much without the sole protectors, so I don't have much of a comparison to make. I will say that wearing shoes with no platform at all is a far different experience than wearing shoes with even a small platform. I won't opine on whether one is better than the other, I can see advantages to both. The upper bands are very soft suede, almost velvet. It's possibly a stupid material to be wearing here in Iowa, as inclement weather could happen at any time, predicted or not. I do have them sprayed down well with chemical protectant, but it still seems way too delicate to last for years. This particular pair is size 38 1/2, and that's barely big enough. I wish they were 39 or even 39 1/2, but I don't think they look terrible. What I really wish is that they were about 5 mm longer in the back, but everything else were the same. That's getting really picky, I realize.

  4. I've failed to resist to the temptation! The heel is not very high, about 8cm,but I love the color and the pattern.

  5. Agreed, I'm fully expected in heels. These days I get more comments when I'm not in heels. Kind of like that is so normal being in 5 inch mostly spike stilettos.

  6. That is a problem only on wet soil. If the ground is dry heels can be worn.

  7. Visiting the Louboutin corner at LA SAMARITAINE Paris. The salesman was very kind, and proposed me to try some knee boots I was looking at. Unfortunately, size 41 wasn't available! 😭

  8. Like many others here, I was young, probably 11-12, not only did I have mom's shoes but two older sisters. I only really played around and wore them for short periods when nobody else was home, but that didn't last that long. They didn't really fit me by the time I turned 13, and am not sure I was really hooked yet, it was a just fun little novelty at that point. It wasn't until about 2 years later, 14, maybe 15. It was my best friends sister, I had a huge crush on her, she was hot and wore fantastic 4 inch heels pretty much all the time. I had a lot of sleep overs at my friends house and occasionally had opportunities to check out her closet, try things on, etc. I wear women's size 10, and she had tons of pairs that were 9 and 9.5, many of which fit me just fine. She had one pair of 4 inch white pumps that I am sure she forgot about, they were buried in the back of her closet, buried under a mountain of other things and were scuffed and not in the best of shape and I thought, "she wouldn't miss these", so I ended up taking them home (not proud of that), but that was really my first pair of heels and I was hooked now. I still didn't have the courage to buy my own pair until I was probably 17 or so. I kept a pretty small collection/stash that I wore mostly in private until I met my future wife, about 10 years later, who was very understanding and open to my experimentation. Well, that opened the flood gates. I wear heels more often than not, and my collection now is really just excessive and I have a hard time keeping it from just getting completely out of control. She has occasionally expressed some unhappiness with it over the years, but for the most part she still supports my quirks

  9. 3000 € is expensive. But I had thought it costed even more! A custom pair made to measure by a real shoemaker in Paris is close to 5000€ @KneeBootedyou may be right. Better one perfect pair than 50 Chinese ones that are badly constructed.
