Wow - almost 2 years since I opened this thread. and SO much has happened during this time. Some of you who I have been in touch with privately know its been a very difficult period for me, battling things on various fronts, but praise the good Lord, I can say that things are better now at home and I am more optimistic than before, and it gives me courage and strength to move forwards.
On the heeling front, things have definitely taken a bit of a blow while I focus on other things and avoid heeling to try minimize possible tensions. I continually visit the forum, and heel via you all So thanks for that!!!
Today I had a bit of quiet time and decided to break out a pair I bought from ASOS (almost 2 years ago, in fact) - a really great looking pair, and at £9 could not pass them up! They have been in my cupboard (still in their box) and I have yet to wear them properly, I had previously only taken one out to try it on.
Missguided Barely There Ankle Tie Heels - Nude colored faux suede - really soft to the touch. Size 8 UK and they fit quite well - even the strap on the bottom is not overly tight, which is something I often worry about with those style of sandal. The bow looks quite large, not sure if overly so (I tied it myself!), but is very cute. (My wife has a similar style, but in flats).
The heel is a stiletto shape 5" (12cm) - absolutely fabulous looking... Platform is less than 1cm. They are delightful to wear, and I can walk in them slowly, and believe that with more practice, could manage in them OK. And the rear zipper really adds some interest - love that feature, for the function and look!
