I have a few shoes that cost over $200 a pair. My open toe sandals, mostly gladiator type wedges are about 6 years old and need to be replaced. The manmade material is starting to deteriorate.
I have checked the websites of brands that make shoes that fit my feet and the have all been too short (heel wise). My local boutique is still waiting on their August order to come in. And DSW has been a disappointment with their slide into becoming the running shoes (trainers) and crocs store. I have a large toe box, both tall and wide, with a high arch, so strappy shoes, single strap shoes, and similar styles usually don't fit, and pumps NEVER fit. (This is why men's shoes NEVER fitted my feet properly and lead to many reconstructive surgeries.) Since I have size 10 women's feet I am lucky to be able to walk into most stores and find heels, BUT lately I haven't found anything I wanted and needed.
There comes a point where you have so many shoes and not enough days in the year to wear them more that once or twice.
