Who has bought some new shoes

Recommended Posts

Oh, you're quite right but could do with getting the money back, especially as I can't really justify the cost......

Understand about "getting the money back." You make good investments and sometimes, make bad ones and have to "eat" them. This appears to be a mistake that you might have to eat. If you can't return them to the store where you bought them, you're stuck with them. Post them up for sale here or on eBay. If that fails, more good will can be earned by giving them to your "friend" without attaching strings than can be had while they sit in your closet gathering dust. Besides, this is just one of those "live and learn" moment we all experience occasionally.

Although they are so, so beautiful, I made the "sensible" decision and took them back today; KG don't give refunds on sale items.....but have got a credit on a gift card so will have to wait until the autumn sales - will just have to try a pair from Office when they come up in the sales.

I'd rather have the credit note now than not able to ever wear or realise the value later on - There are plenty of other shoes to be bought down the line.

Great heels Mr. X, i really love Aldo! Shame that Aldo shoes aren't suitable for me, they just don't fit. I hope you enjoy your new purchases. :wave:

Here in Dallas, Texas it is a relatively cool day - only 90 deg F (32 deg C). Quite often it gets up to 100 deg F (38 deg C). I read about all the purchases of boots, and then they are worn with jeans. No way would I wear that combination in the summer! Here the only comfortable heels and bottoms are sandals and skirts that I wear publicly on a regular basis. :wave:

John H, Would like to see some pics of your sandals. We are in Az. so sandals are very popular here, too. The ladies wear them all the time and look great in them. I wear the same thing.

I got the sandals from WomanWith. They are Tara studded wide sandal by Comfortview. I got the brown color in 11 wide (US women). They are just a touch too long, but the width is OK. The heel height is 7 cm (2 3/4 inches) high rather than 5 cm ("2 inches") as described by the website.

They are really comfortable.

I wear the pair publicly with a denim skirt and nobody seems to pay any attention!

Got these from Aldo yesterday.

They are so comfortable to wear ( Like slippers ).

I noticed they are made in Brazil (and not in China like most of their shoes)

This must be the reason why they are so comfortable. Perfect heel height. Love them :wave:

Here's my last two purchases at Charlotte Russe this week;

And...here's what I bought today at A'gaci (a store I just discovered on Wednesday). Bought it in size 10, tried it on in the store which is very open bu it helps when you fixate on the shoe's fit and are oblivious to your surroundings! Now I have two pairs of heels in fuschia!!

Great shoes for your first pair, ultrakiller :wave: It doesn't take long to learn to wear heels like that. And when you do, you will be able to enjoy the feeling of high heels much more.

Hi All You Shoe Lovers,

I went to my buddy's store, Skyscraperheels in Chicago, the other day and gave him my first custom order for these pair wedges in neutral with a SLINGBACK top intead of the normal ankle strap as pictured. Because the cork is cut instead of a plastic moled covered in cork it will be more expensive and because the sole is flat instead of having a small arch the shoe will be very quiet. In size 11 the heel should measure at least 6.5". I have always wanted a genuine cork wedge over 5" and will finally now have some. These would go with bootcut jeans, capris, or skirts. The quintessential shoe of summer!! They should be at his shop in three weeks. HappyinHeels:smile:

camera battery gone flat so found some pics of my new shoes from zara recently

I really like the wedge sandals on pic #2 and #3.

The heel is high and since they are wedge, I am sure they are also very comfortable to walk.

Did you have a change to wear them ? (At least for a few hours)

If so, what is your opinion on them ?

Well done !

I'll wear them when I go up to our 40 acres in far northern Wisconsin IF they come in before I leave. I can walk down the driveway, through our pastures, or along the ATV trails, that's why I really like wedges. They can also be worn as you travel, filling up at gas stations, comfortable to walk in and comfortable to drive in. What gets you noticed isn't the shoes but more what color your toes are painted if you do that. Stiletto heels are even more fun but are more noticeable and noisier. They do have a major problem in pastures and in the woods---you sink into the dirt :wave: HappyinHeels

hi danielp6406,yep those beige wedges are really really comfortable,a bit awkward to get on ,but they fit like a glove. sharpLeather,these clog style are great (and comfortable),they have a rubber tread sole which curves towards the front which makes them really easy to walk in,just had to have them!
