    Reason for wearing heels??

    Your timing and mine are kind of close. I was embarrassed in front of my peers in kindergarten because I did not know black patent leather shoes were something girls wore and boys did not. I learned that day girls got to wear pretty neat shoes which guys didn't get to wear. The Mary-Jane was a common school shoe choice for the young ladies back in the mid 1950's. Wow are those days gone. Pretty shoes were a common daily style not reserved for special occasions. Oh how I wanted to try a pair of those black patent leather Mary-Janes. Finally in 1970 at 18, the Montgomery Ward fall sales catalog had on sale for $3.99, a Black Shiny Man-made upper with a Trio of Tiny straps. If one strap caught my fancy, three of them were so much better. That was my first and I have always had that special feeling for a Mary-Jane style pump over just about everything else.

    KneeBooted's Adventures?

    I have a couple of pairs of hidden heels from Payless. The only way to really notice they have a hidden wedge is by the instep being more prominent. I have worn them out quite frequently. The one which is similar to your Converse has maybe a 2" heel while the other is closer to 3" in height. Your boots are very inspiring. Welcome back to adding posts.
  4. Have you thought of the possibility of a contact cement, Barge's is a common tool in the shoe repair shops.

    Can feet shrink?

    Not sure they shrink, but mine went from a size 10 B that had a bit of a tight fit to a 12 W or a 13 M over the last 50 years.

    My Story

    My earliest recollection of "playing" with heels is not what most would think. They were my mother's and I was using them like a set of barricades on a street with my Tonka dump-truck. I had no inkling to try them on as that was not my interest as a very young kid. It may have been shortly thereafter I was exposed to the realities that girls wore black patent shoes which looked nothing like the black shoes I was wearing. After that "humiliation" in front of the rest of my peers did I develop the interest in why girls got to wear different shoes from the boys. From then on, I became a connoisseur of the female foot ware but never could act on my interest until I shuffled off to college. Sadly, since then, the female shoe styles have almost completely mimicked the same styles as the guy as the preference moved to athletic styles. It seems most females despise the ability to wear heels freely as it was once the standard. Congratulations on your acquisitions. Back when I purchased my first, the largest sizes was predominately a 10B or 10M. Over the last 50 years since then. my size has increased to a 12W or a 13M. I had some great fun back then with some fantastic styles and colors that are no longer abundant. So many styles today and for the last 4 to 5 years have just been plain boring to me.
  7. No as she has no interest in heels. I have purchased a few pair for her over the years and they just kind of "disappear." She says they just are not comfortable to wear after the first few minutes. The last pair for her, I even bought a matching pair and found them to very comfortable but after a onetime wear, she said they were not. Sadly.

    Who has bought some new shoes

    I have long had a rather soft spot in my interest in the female styles with instep strap(s) or ankle strap. It all goes back to my discovery in kindergarten there was a difference about black patent being girls' shoes and they were Mary-Janes. Those look great and congratulations on your find.

    What matches purple heels?

    Would white work? Or black as they are both a neutral color?

    Noticing people in heels

    Some look at the eyes first as they notice someone; others look at the middle body parts while my first look is usually at the foot-ware. That has been part of me since kindergarten when I was embarrassed not to know the difference between black patent and black shoes.

    What Happened to White?

    I just saw a news report which showed the president's wife with a pair of classic white pumps while at an airport. The look was fantastic.

    First pair of heels?

    Congratulations on your purchase. For many years I would hesitate about that interaction with a cashier and would inquire about the return policy "if she does not like them or they don't fit" to make a statement they were NOT for me. That was during a time before self check-out was available. In the past few years, I began to go to Payless Shoe Source and shop in person and use Halloween or a fundraiser as the reason. I was able to interact with a sales associate to find the proper fit for the best comfort. That worked until one previous SA stated what are you doing here again. That ended my fun of shopping and trying on different styles. It was fun while it lasted. You have a lot more styles available with a 10/11 size of foot than I do with a 12/13 size. I hope you enjoy your new found find. They look great.

    What Happened to White?

    As a kid of the 50's and a tween in the early 60s when I discovered the high heeled shoes were something special, white was a common shade of choice. The Spring/Summer catalogs featured that as the color of choice for female footwear for the season from Easter to Labor Day . White stated femininity as guys styles were not offering that choice of color unless one was a doctor. It seemed Easter was a time many young ladies began their first experience wearing heels and were mostly white. Over time, it seems the color white has faded from the mainstay in the color of shoes for any season. White heels are seldom seen and I am wondering if anyone has a recollection as to when and why that has occurred?

    Something Different

    Congratulations on your trip and attitude. It would take a lot of nerve to get out of the comfort zone with stilettos .... congratulations!
