    Great looking shoes Jeff. Nice to see you in a traditional heel again!

    Nice looking red sandals! I like the ankle strap treatment.

    Great looking pumps. LK Bennett has many styles that I like.

    Noisy Boots

    Aly has the right answer. Take them to a shoe repair place and ask to have the heels filled with silicone or foam, and rubber caps added. That will do the trick. I've done that to three different pairs of shoes/boots.

    Nine West

    Well, there goes another company that sold size 12 US in just about every shoe they market. There was always something at Nine West that caught my eye. That's too bad...really too bad. I suppose someone might take them over, but I would expect major changes that would destroy what they are all about. I'll miss them!

    Boot cut or not

    Biggest problem is if I buy a pair that is large enough for my right foot, within 10 minutes I'm walking right out of the left shoe. However, I haven't had the experience that these Karmen pumps are giving me with pressure where the nail joins the outside of the toe on the left foot. Left foot feels fine until I start walking, and then it's quite uncomfortable. Sandals would likely help, but it is quite difficult to be inconspicuous in heeled sandals. I just can't do the full out public thing as you do.
  10. Thanks for all of the suggestions, guys! LOL Somehow I'm guessing that they would meet with, at best, limited success!

    Boot cut or not

    Not my first time out in heels for sure, just the first time in an actual pump style. Well aware of the hazards - I have worn a bootie with a thin heel a number of times. Even my chunky heel Clark's oxfords will wobble a bit on a stone or uneven pavement. I actually get a bit of a thrill when an ankle twists a bit. Reminds me that I'm wearing heels! I've been having great difficulty finding shoes that are comfortable for me. Yes, I try them on - but a minute or two in the shoe aisle is not the same as walking around for an hour for sure. Things seem fine in the store and then, after 10 minutes of real wear, not so fine! Biggest issue is my right foot is at least a 1/2 size larger than my left - may be closer to a full size. And I can;t afford to buy two pair!

    Heels and soft ground

    I'd sure love a pair of those heels! Very nice!
  14. This is an old photo, but I thought I'd throw it in here. Unfortunately, I am now unable to take new pics, as my wife has retired and is home all the time.

    Boot cut or not

    Mostly true, Bluejay - I do dislike mules, but I've come around somewhat on wedges. There are some that I like and have actually bought a couple pairs in the past. I just think that the high back piece on the sandals has run its course, simply tired of seeing it. It seems to be the choice of women though. Guess I shouldn't complain if they're actually wearing heels! Speaking of boot cut, I wore a pair of pumps in public last night for the first time. Karmans from Payless. I am not one to be conspicuous, so I did wear them with long boot cut jeans which basically covered the shoe. It was nice to be out doing some shopping in a pair of pumps - I did enjoy that experience. Unfortunately, the shoes did not fit quite as expected. They seemed fine in the store - I knew the right foot was a bit snug and I thought that if I had an issue, it would be with the right foot. But after walking in them for a while, the left shoe was pressing on the edge of the nail on my left foot, which turned out to be the most uncomfortable. The right foot was snug, but no real pain. Anyway, I enjoyed the first time experience of pumps in public!

    Just picked up a pair of Payless Karmen pumps. Looking for some comfort and a non-obvious style. Plenty of pics of those so I see no need to post again.

    Boot cut or not

    SF, I like those sandals - very nice. I much prefer the crossed ankle straps such as those to the single strap with the high rise back that has been beat to death for the last 3-4 years now. I dislike the height that the back of the sandal usually gets to - looks like it never fits properly on those. Jeeze, I wish that look would go away. I like yours much better.

    You guys decide

    I'd go with the pumps myself

    How many MEN'S shoes do you have?

    I don't understand how women's shoes can fit a wide foot better. I can see the heel part, but if you have a large toe box area, there is not a pair of women's shoes made that are wider through the toe box than a pair of men's shoes - sandals or whatever. I wear a men's 10 W. If I try a women's 10 W, the toe box is too tight and the length is short. If I go to an 11 wide, some sandals are ok - others still too tight, and pumps are still much too tight in 11 W. I can occasionally find a women's 11 WW in a style I like, and that usually works. But if you needed a men's 9 4EEE, there is physically no way a womens 10 M has a toe box that large. Look at the dimensions when shown - the width dimension between mens 9 4EEE and womens 10 M is not really close. Something is off somewhere. I am unable to back up my statement at the present with measurements, but if I find a table showing width in CM or inches for various widths I will post. Not arguing that they might fit you better, but I'm guessing something was off on the men's side of the equation then. Ok, I found the attached - http://www.sizecharter.com/clothing-fit-and-measurement/understanding-shoe-sizing There you will see the width for a men's size 9 EEEE listed at 10.8 CM, and a women's 10 M at 9.7 CM. Granted, not all shoes conform to these measurements, but I would assume that they are "typical" at least.
