  1. Yeah, this pretty much sums things up. Might find a few older women with a boot with maybe a 2" heel, but the younger ladies are all about flipflops and sneakers.
  2. Seeing as how the DSW stores in my area have stopped carrying size 11, I'll have no chance to try on her stuff in store.
  3. There is a similar beach in Wisconsin, I can't remember exactly where, but I walked on that stuff in athletic shoes and it was very difficult. Would be virtually impossible in heels!
  4. Yeah, I was in college at the wrong time - 1969-1973. That was certainly not a good time for heels at all, the Woodstock era when heels were pretty much nowhere to be found. College girls wore jeans and Keds/athletic styles, flat sandals, or penny loafers. "Heels" were chunky things of not more than a couple inches. I think the heel wearing peaked in the 80's. Yes, in more recent years heels were higher and still worn often, but as you said, even girls going to class were wearing heels, and quite often with their jeans. Even casual shoes tended to be heels, such as the Candies sanda
  5. Hard to tell for sure, but it kind of looks like her heel is not down on the grate. Could well have all of her weight on the toe are here.
  6. I've wondered about her stuff as well. I've seen them at DSW but have not tried any on.
  7. This is no longer true. While not saying none will wear heels, many are opting for flats and crap like jeweled or sequined athletic/casual type styles or similar flat sandals.
  8. Yep. That about sums it up. And I for one am not a happy camper......
  9. Article from USA Today. I think this is the prevalent attitude among women today. Which doesn't bode well for heels for sure. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2020/08/10/we-ever-wear-high-heels-again-pandemic/3314964001/
  10. I have to agree with you on that one.
  11. Cali, I know that there are heels available on line, but I like to try before I buy. The decline of the availability of dress shoes period in many stores is simply troubling. I used to be able to find a decent selection of size 11 heels at DSW. Within the last year, the size 11's basically disappeared, and now the selection of dress shoes has been reduced by at least 60-70%. And while there are plenty of boots still available, the number with a heel of much over 2" keeps shrinking as well. And no 11's in boots either. In my area, Macy's stores have, for the most part, gone to a sel
  12. Not sure where you work, but your experience is the complete opposite of what I'm seeing, which is a serious and distinct trend toward sneakers/casual shoes in what would typically be considered business or dress situations. I also just posted a discussion of the complete lack of dress shoes/heels at local TJ Maxx/Marshalls sotres and the decreasing selection at DSW, Nordstrom Rack, etc. Wish I was seeing what you are!
  13. After watching DSW go from two full aisles of dress shoes/heels down to half of one aisle, I didn't think things could get much worse. Friday I stopped at Marshalls and TJ Maxx, both of which, while not often having much in my size 11/12, always had a decent selection of heels. I was appalled to find that both stores had basically eliminated women's dress shoes completely with nothing but low and flat heeled boots on the shelves along with some casual sneaker type crap. The only heels in either store were a couple of pairs left over in the clearance racks. Wow. That was a very dishearteni
  14. You've made big strides in a short period of time. Keep it up!
  15. I miss your stories and photos as well. Hope you will post some more here.
