Who has bought some new shoes

Recommended Posts

Those are similar to a style I like, but I have never seen anything similar too. Someone on this forum found a pair of clogs at Kohl's years ago, and I bought a pair myself. Love these heels, but I haven't seen anything similar. Can't even find a duplicate pair in my size lately. The picture below is the Elle clogs, but this pair someone is selling is too small. Been looking for similar styles for awhile.

My wife has this pair of clogs (size US 9).  They are very nice.

I saw those today as well on the Payless site. I'll need to find them in store. They look interesting.

If you want those they are on line only and there is only 34 pairs in the system in size 13

Great find at Goodwill. Need to polish the leather.

Just left my first review with my pictures; these pumps, despite looking great, fit terribly. They are too small even at size 11; Wish this was one of the styles JS had in size 12.

 

Dexflex Karmichael (Payless, $15, Clearance)

Comfortable.

That's a shame about the fit of the JS pumps, they do look very stylish. I used to squeeze into shoes that fit too small but I refuse to do that now. Enjoy your other pairs.

Inquisitor,

 

If I may be critical in a constructive way, your leg skin appears very dry and scaly. You really owe it to yourself to take better care of it. It's especially bad in winter, no doubt, due to the dry air. Go to a drug store and buy Lac-Hydrin Five, a skin cream sold over the counter. It's expensive but has alpha hydroxy which works wonders to moisturize scaly skin, cracked heels, and other skin problems. My dermatologist cousin recommended it to me years ago and it's fantastic.

 

Disclaimer: I don't have anything to do with the company that makes it. I just love the product for its performance. You will, too.

 

And, nice heels. I like all of them. Too bad about the fit of the JS ones. Enjoy the others.

 

Steve

Thanks, Steve. It's on my list of things to attend to. I'll stop by CVS/Walgreens and check it out.

Yep. If they arent too much of a hazard ( cords, bad lighting, small-ish stage ). If not, I have a pair of neon-ish wedge sneakers. Ggood to have a backup plan ;)

 

Good luck to you!

 

Thank you Jeff!

 

Killer shoes there ILK.

I wanted Black but they were out. Its a rare find these days to be able to purchase a non platformed shoe with a metal stiletto. 80's wear for sure! :D

How long with your set be? I mean, spike heels aren't exactly comfy like bedroom slippers or sneakers after all. Oh, yeah! What will you wear with those shoes?

The set will be.. Probably just over an hour. Our singer.. well.. lets say this is his very first gig. Hes never done Kareokee or even held a mic before we put him behind one. We dont want to be up there too long endless he finds the hook-n-groove and gets cumfy in his own skin. If that happens, an hour and a half. He might just look out at the crowd and run off and leave us to take over singing ( yes, I speak from experience, such has happened before ).

As for my other attire.. A white collared shirt unbuttoned. The back is VERY long, almost like coat tails ( almost reaches the back of my knees ). It has regular sleeves. Some kind of T-shirt underneath it. Stone washed leggings ( Blue with a LOT of white in them ). ' Cheaters ' or knee length stockings in a pale white color or possibly a nylon/spandex type of sock ( again in white ).

The 3 guitars Im using are 2 Charvel SoCal models and one Jackson DK-1. White ( standard tuning ), Bright Pink ( Tuned down 1/4 step or just ' flat ' ) and a Metallic flake Purple in standard tuning.

I try to wear what matches my guitars or match guitars to what I wear. I try to be presentable ;)

As for the time in heels.. I can go a good 4 or 5 hours without any issues. Im used to wearing them almost every day when Im not doing physical labour. My only concern is with them being new and not yet ' broken in '. I DO have the SAME shoe in a size 10/white ( bought over a years ago ) but they are a bit too snug. They fit my friends 8.5USWomen PERFECTLY. I ordered these Fusicha ones in a USWomans 11 so Im hoping they will fit much better.

A couple last minute orders came in to round out the year for me.  I actually took these pictures in a hurry to get them cataloged before I head out the door for holidays away with family.

 

First up is a pair of Iron Fist Zebracorn platforms.  These are from the period of time when Torrid licensed manufature of a couple of their styles in wide width and extended sizes.  These are 12D and although they are just a little bit short and my toes hang off just a tiny bit more than I tend to like, it won't get much better for this particular style.  12D width was the largest that Torrid had during that season's run.  I know Iron Fist manufatured up through US14 in the RuPaul's Drag Race line but the larger sizes were massively under manufatured, very hard to find, and what was made ended up being sent to discounters.  I missed out on a couple pairs of those years ago and still "kick" myself for it.  These were a second hand purchase.

 

Second are a pair of black patent platform pumps with a cool faux zipper on the back.  The red behind the gold zipper gives them a little pop in my opinion.  These are by Hot Tomato and amazingly run true to size.  I only wish I knew the fit would be so good so that I could have ordered other colors before they were discontinued.

Well, good luck to you, my friend. I hope all goes well for you!

Thanks again.

I will have a Merry Christmas though. They came today. Man.. these things are comfortable! The footbed is padded ( but not overly leaving things unstable/too soft ). The color is a bit different then the pictures. They are more of a hot pink then a fuchsia. The fit is dead on for my feet.

Im normally not a fetish type of guy, but the sound of these on a large tile floor in a mostly empty hallway in dead silence..

I think im going to ditch the pale or white knee-highs and just go with a color natural to my normal skin tone. It doesnt look like they are, but they have a 5.25 inch heel ( thats 133mm for the non SAE types ;) ). No jackstand at all.

Even if the color is slightly more than expected, they look great. Good pick - - - do they make hot pink picks???

Umm.. They have a ' pearl pink ' which is like a white with a very light pink overtone to them..

https://www.sexyshoes.com/p-694-ss-9706.aspx

They only had pink-pearl and fuchsia in size 11 ( which fits a small 10, large 9.5 . They do run a full size or so smaller ( maybe my feet have grown? ).

Red, black and white are all sold out for anything even close to what I wear..

I still have a pair of their white pumps that I bought in the summer of 93.  They are 13 wide and fit like a small 12 medium.  They used to carry some really great shoes in larger sizes back then.  It was before the mainstream internet had made its way into homes so you had to call them to request a catalog and order by mail.  I still had that catalog up until a couple years ago and I'm pretty sure that those shoes were in it.

Wow very nice! I don't think I can ever rock hot pink pumps like that! I love the gold heel to it as well.

Another pair from Pleasure. To replace the pair I returned.  Only thing is I now bought another of the same  pair but in black. Just waiting for them to turn up.post-2673-0-92848000-1419781586_thumb.jp  post-2673-0-50355200-1419781638_thumb.jp

Very elegant LovesHiHeels. They do look a little big at the back but I guess maybe the ankle strap of the T-bar stops them from slipping too much. You've inspired me to rediscover my T-bar heels, it's ages since I wore them. Enjoy yours (and I do like the angles of your photos but it'd also be great to see how they look on the outside of your feet, not just the instep).

Hope you like yours as much as I have mine. Did you review them? I got mine via Amazon and left a review there.

When I take photos I do a selfie, Which means I have to bend right over and try to get a good photo of my heels. I also have my feet twisted at odd angles to try and get a complete view of my heels in 1 photo. It not easy doing so and I take loads of photos. I then pick the best  1 or 2 to up load on here. What you are seeing here is my legs bent over which causes a little gap to appear at the back. 

I have odd size feet ,my right is more like a size 9uk but my left is more like a size 8uk or a very small size 9uk.  I also have a bunion on my left foot so it sometime pays me to buy a size bigger. I bought these on line so a usa12 fits me fine, where I might have a problem going down to a size usa11.  I did buy a size 11usa last year. Same make and style in leather with a more rounded shoe box. Should of been a comfortable pair of heels to wear. Could not wear them for more then 10 minutes and ended up selling them on.

Yes, it is quite difficult taking photos with a hand-held camera. You did well with the ones you took (especially the first one), they're clear and sharp with good lighting.

 

As for the gap I agree it makes more sense to go up to a 12usa rather than try to squeeze into 11usa that doesn't fit. I guess the 12 might give you enough space for some gel inserts in the toe area, which would make those heels super-comfortable so long as that doesn't spoil the line around the toes.

 

I have a very slight size difference between my left and right foot but not as much as you describe for yourself (which is apparently quite common). I remember that a young lady who worked at a cafe was very excited that I was wearing heels, and when she said that she was thinking of buying a pair she really liked but she had reservations. I said "hey, if I can overcome my reservations about wearing heels, you can overcome yours, go for it!". When I next saw her she had bought her heels but had a nightmare (stuffing the toes with tissues) because she has quite a big size difference between her feet. It only occured to me afterwards that slingbacks could be a good solution as they could be adjusted for each foot. Do you wear slingbacks?

When I do start to feel pain is always my left foot and my bunion which causes the pain.  I can wear those T-bar heels for around 3 hours before I need to take them off. Not a pair I would wear out any way.

 

 I do own 3 pairs of slingbacks. I pair I no longer wear but were comfortable. I don't seem to wear the other 2 pairs much either.  I do own a pair of Nine West slingback wedges in a size 11usa  but still have pain after about 2 hours but seem to fit fine. My last pair of slingbacks no problems with pain what so ever.

Wow, ILK, I didn't realize that you were comfortable in heels that high!  Seems to me most of your wonderful collection has been a bot more conservative height wise?  They look good with those skinny jeans you have on in the pics here. Beyond my limit though!  Enjoy!

 

And I dislike jackstands as well!  .
