well, lots of things tried on, but my time was limited in Melbourne. Dont you just hate it when work gets in the way on a work trip ?? I visited a few stores and tried lots of shoes on. My intent was to try on for a day then decide which pair I had to have and go back.....

I found that a couple of the cheaper brands held by a few chains DSW & Famous footwear fit well in the size 10 that they carry. so another brand that fits....... then i went next door and looked at RMK, they used to carry cheap rubbish, but now carry only leather shoes, with a cheaper brand doing the synthectics, again most of their 10s fitted. The sales girls at RMK went above and beyond, very impressed

but I came home with lots of memories and no new purchases. 

My best memory was at the Nine West store at the airport. I was looking at the shoes on display along with another lady. The sales assistant asked her if she needed any help and she said "Im just admiring his shoes" then when I looked up, she said "they are very nice, wish I had a pair"  SMILES ALL ROUND

In the meantime I found a pair of ZU thigh boots in size 10 on Gumtree, and grabbed them. 11cm heel, 1cm platform, stretchy synthetic, but great feel (and look i think)

Lovely boots, but starting to get a bit warm for long boots now. At least you will have some great boots for next winter!

Melbourne Cup Day in Aus and all the girls are ‘frocked up’ so thought I would dispense with my usual boots and went with some new pumps from Famous Footwear.

If they fit, buy both (again, it's not my money we're talking about).

Two weeks ago I bought a pair of Impo Ownery boots in black. Today I got them in Midnight Blue (and that's with my money).

thank you to all who assisted in my decision making, or not as the case may be, as I think most suggests I buy both

 

so just as I started to look for alternatives (see above posts) a pair of shoes I ordered some months ago from Amazon in the US with help from a member on this forum turned up. They had got lost in transit (to get to AUS i have to use a US based remailer) and Id given them up as dead. but after nearly 3 months they turned up.

Nine West Tornaydo, black leather, size 11, 10cm heel, very similar look to the Wittner ones above but has a half T-Bar and a strap across the instep. I love them.
