  1. I agree about peep toes. I cannot see the point of a small opening; open-toe sandals or shoes should be as revealing as possible at the front, commensurate with the overall style and practicality. You suggested that these mules would normally be $100. Surely at that price one might expect leather, and reasonable quality all round?
  2. The truth is that you want a heel - but with sax appeal to boot.
  3. With the right fertiliser, higher yield footwear is entirely possible. 👠
  4. So, you are the result of in-breeding and also incredibly old and probably illegitimate? ☹️ But high heels were standard menswear when you were growing up, methinks. ☺️
  5. I thought you were already a WASP?
  6. Do you really like that very set-back heel position? Apart from appearance, surely not so easy to walk in? (Despite that, nice white shoes.)
  7. I agree with you about sizing. UK11 is not equivalent to Eu44; more correctly Eu45. I very much doubt that your pair would fit UK11 but, from what you suggest, is a reasonably true Eu44 rather than the Eu43 you really wanted.
  8. I am somewhat sceptical that the claimed Eu44 is correct; more likely to be the advertised UK9 and possibly not even that big. But I hope you get what you want; please let us know.
  9. Passion shown in two colours, but nothing larger than UK9 shown, and sizing suspect according to some reviews: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-passion-stiletto-court-shoes-in-chocolate/prd/200406684?colourwayid=200406686&SearchQuery=passion Penelope likewise although tan sold out: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-penelope-stiletto-court-shoes-in-beige-patent/prd/12171041?colourwayid=16455145&SearchQuery=penelope
  10. It does seem that most ASOS own-brand shoes come up small. My UK13 boots are certainly not too big on my UK11-12 feet. (I'm wondering what, if any, women's styles will be offered by ASOS in sizes above UK10 this winter?)
  11. I think they are ASOS Penelope in tan, 5" heel: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-penelope-stiletto-court-shoes-in-tan/prd/20392718 Shown now as out of stock but others colours still available. If I'm wrong, the Penelope might still appeal to you!
  12. I'm sure you also became more down-to-earth and gained a better grounding in your career. 🐹🌩️
  13. Now those white slingbacks are VERY nice! I'm guessing 5"? That style was very popular in the early '60s but I have very rarely seen them (being either worn or advertised) in recent years; all offerings seem to have the wrong heel position or toe shape, or are given an ankle strap and an ugly platform.
  14. I didn't take your comment as being criticism and share your sadness. ☺️
  15. I think you misunderstood my point. Pierre's regular purchases of heels have given the manufacturers some potentially profitable business, but I agree that many of the good brands have gone forever. High-heeled does not necessarily mean high-yield!
  16. If I may ask, what happened that led to that diagnosis? Was it an existing medical (skeletal?) condition or did you have an accident? Fortunately for high-heel manufacturers, you survived and they prospered!
  17. Somehow, the sandals seem to blend nicely with the background pipework. I like the graceful curves on both!
  18. Was there any explanation of not sending you what you actually ordered? Regardless of whether they (fortunately) run large and therefore fit you, I would not expect a substitution to be made without consultation.
  19. Is that a stall catering for 'persons of restricted growth' being set up to the left? Hi ho, hi ho ...
  20. Be careful if you slip into the vernacular - it makes an awful mess of nice shoes. 🤢
  21. A bad start, but I'm pleased to know that your English lessons were not entirely wasted! 👨‍🎓
  22. I couldn't resist a further search. This one caught my eye; anyone we know? (I liked the reference elsewhere to such oddball customers being called 'Walmartians'!) And, given that this is Kentucky, I think we may know who this is:
  23. I think that you and your wife are being very generous to treat a stranger's impromptu photography as a compliment, even if you do both enjoy it. Most women (unless obviously posing or modelling) would surely treat such a 'liberty' as weird or borderline perverted, especially if they were alone? I suppose in your wife's case she is indeed clearly posing so there is an implied invitation to admire and capture on film, with or without permission.
  24. I should perhaps qualify my earlier comments, which reflect usual behaviour in the UK - or at least the more urban areas of the southern half. Casual encounters between strangers in open areas of a town will rarely produce any acknowledgement, spoken or otherwise. It is the sign of a 'foreigner' (i.e. someone from the next county but one) that he or she might attempt a greeting, or even a conversation. Not really true in the country, where a polite 'good morning' or similar is usual. When on public transport in the south east, speaking to the stranger squashed up close to you in the rush-hour is distinctly frowned upon, unless (perhaps) he has vomited over you or is threatening you with a really sharp knife or a gun. Only yesterday, strolling casually in the sun towards a supermarket in my town, I was taken aback when a complete stranger gave me a semi-salute and a cheery greeting as he passed. I immediately assumed that there was something amiss with my appearance - perhaps my fly was open or I had half my breakfast round my face. (Neither was the case, nor was I wearing heels.) No, I am not joking - the encounter, harmless though it was, was momentarily unnerving. When queuing (another popular British pastime) In a shop, or at a bus stop etc, it is not uncommon however to commence or respond to a brief conversation with a fellow detainee. But it must be strictly restricted to the activity in hand (e.g. the wait for service, the absence of stock, the size of the shop assistant's breasts) or, exceptionally, the prevailing weather. However, despite all I have just said, the stranger in town (particularly if from overseas) will invariably receive a polite and helpful response to any equally polite comment, question or request for directions that he might make in innocent ignorance of these British conventions. Welcome to the UK! 😄
