Jesus, Joe! What happened to your foot?
And speaking of Joe, I have to report that my latest purchase is not a pair of 5 inch pumps, but rather (gasp), another pair of mules. I have basically quit buying shoes, for a number of reasons, but these were cheap enough and cool enough to catch my eye on ebay. They are Joie "Raja" mules, and I paid approximately $50 for them, once you include shipping. They are my usual formula of 5 inch heel, 1 inch platform (sorry Joe, old habits die hard). They are all leather, including the sole, and they're rather buttery soft. Only thing is, in a perfect world I would have gotten them in a size 9 instead of 8 1/2. I'm pretty sure once they break in, they'll be all right, but they are bordering on being too small. Buying online, it's the risk one takes. I have learnt over the years, don't buy size 9 sandals, they're always too big. Except when they aren't. Super thin heel on these. I kind of like it, but I kind of don't. One of these days, I'll have to make up my mind about what I'm really going to actually wear versus what I think is pretty cool.
