Who has bought some new shoes

Recommended Posts

A pair of Boutique 9 Justine pumps in red snake kept getting marked down at an outlet, and I finally grabbed them at $35. They are pretty comfortable :)

Oh, wow! Those ARE sharp! Well done, my friend!

Went to Payless looking for some sandals but did not find anything close to what I was looking for. Tried on some flats and an intriguing set of heels but went out shoeless. (Well, not really shoeless as I was wearing what I came in with. )

Eventually found something close at another store in the form of a flat, strappy sandal and decided it needed to be mine.

Sorry for the awkward angle, but it went on as soon as I hit the car. I am loving the warmer weather.

Just brought these brogue style shoes from clarks on line, after spotting them in the shop on sunday. They arrived Tuesday morning and wore them all day very comfortable and will wear them out and about as they are not to girly, and were only 48 pounds + postage a fiver, could have free postage if I was to wait until weekend for delivery. I normally take a size 7 uk but got a seven and a half normal width so they are ok with my socks and am very happy with the way they fit. I might order another pair for backup as it is very hard to find shoes I am happy with.

Sandals with barely a heel but i like thong sandals - inexpensive from Famous Footwear


2nd pair : Wasn't sure where to put these: under boots or shoes. They are really sorta " Shoeties" - Tracy is the brand - inexpensive but comfortable and i like them for wearing in the office.

Hey what's up everyone have some new photos my wife helped me take while we were downtown.  I'm really proud of these photos because it was something we got to do together.  For the first time in a long time I felt really good about this type of accomplishment let me know what you all think.

Well, yesterday, I went and bought a shoe style I thought I'd NEVER buy----a slide! Yes, I'm sure I've mentioned a few times here and there that I've never been a fan of slides, calling them impractical because of the open back, but for the last few days I had been intrigued by the Payless "O'Malley" platform wedge slide, so, out of curiosity, I went to a store a mile away from home and bought not just one pair, but two as it was buy one pair, get the other at half off, so I got those shoes in black and natural which was a sort of beige. The four inch platform wedge was quite stable, comfortable, easy to stand and walk in, and yes, they go well with my skirts, from a mini to a maxi. In short, these slides have style, and I liked them! Who'd a thunk it, right? Nevertheless, I can't wait to take these shoes out for a jaunt!

Things I learned in my youth come to mind like: "Well if it makes you happy..." and "If you cant say something nice...".  Recent learnings are more like: "Being comfortable in what you wear starts from liking what you see" and "I can wear anything I want".  I do, however, agree with your previously long held assessment of slides. :roll:

Welcome to the wonderful world of slides, Jeff! I currently own about 15 pairs of sandals, and all of them are slides. The particular design you bought doesn't look impractical at all. I have several that might be considered impractical, but maybe I like them *because* they're impractical. I like a challenge.

HA! Well, you can't please everybody! It's kinda hard to explain, but something about those shoes, well, attracted me, so, I went ahead and made that purchase, and I was pleased with the new acquisitions. Just like any woman, it's good to have lots of choices when it comes to shoe styles. You could say that I'm branching out, and that's not exactly a bad thing.

No, the new shoes didn't at all look impractical, and that was why I was interested enough in them to buy them, and I was happy I did. I can see myself wearing them in purely casual settings when I want to dress down, but still wear heels, and, at four inches, those slides give me all the height I want while maintaining a good sense of comfort.

Hi JeffB,

Last week I also bought the Payless "Omalley" slides. I bought them in the black, brown and rainbow color. Really comfortable to wear. I love wearing slides and have many pairs of them.

You got a BOGO deal on them. I got them on sale for $16.99 a pair and since I spent over $50.00, I had a coupon from Payless giving me an additional 25% off. Great deal at Payless.

 

I also bought two pairs of clearance "Willow" high wedge heel, closed toe, wedge heel slides one pair in black and the other light tan, at the BOGO price, plus the additional 25% off. Two pairs of wedge heel slides for $12.00 plus tax, what a great deal at Payless!

 

Enjoy wearing your new slides. I like wearing mine, very much.

 

Happy Heeling,

bluejay

bluejay: Yes, I've quickly come to enjoy the new slides I bought, especially in the natural color as I put together a few outfits to go with them. I'm most eager to take them on a trip in the real world.

I just got a new pair of lace up shoes. I normally go for Oxfords, but these Derbys were cute and cheap.

They are Guess brand, and they are made of an interesting sort of charcoal gray fabric. I don't know what it's called, but it's just ever so slightly fuzzy and rough. It kind of reminds me of the stuff they cover stage monitor speakers with. It's accented with a black patent leather heel, at a healthy 5 1/4 inches, and a black patent platform, which, at an even inch, is about as high as I care to go with an exposed platform.

I wore them to the grocery store the other day, just to sort of test them out, and they are pretty doggoned easy to walk in for a short distance. I can't comment on their long term comfort, as I have not yet attempted my 2 mile test in them. Overall, I really like the way they look as a more casual shoe than I normally buy.

Gather your nerve, since it would be a shame not to show them off.  Being that bright, you can wear them with almost anything.  JeffB says no one will raise an eyebrow, but he didn't say they wouldn't be noticed. But then it isn't any fun if they aren't noticed.Take good care of the suede and be glad you no longer have to wear the shoes hanging on your wall.

Slides are great shoes…  I initially did not like slides but was convinced (changed) by my wife.  She has always been a "slide gal."  I, on the other hand preferred a shoe / sandal with a strap around the back or top of my foot.  With time, and her recommendation, I have gotten to like slides as well.  Slides, or slip-on's - are just that, a shoe that can be put on or off with ease.  

I still have my strappy sandals, as does the wife, but slides are fashionable and comfortable too !!  A few pics are included.  Take care all..  sf

Okay, guys, you've convinced me! I'll buy a pair of the Classique pumps and see what they're like. The only decision left to make: black matte or black patent.

I bought a pair of these, and then ended up returning them.  They are VERY narrow!

I like slides and mules just because it's easy to wear between inside and outside. I have a couple pair I wear when I go out to grill or get something out of the garage etc. Just easier to put on.

Here is my deal of the day.  I picked these up today at Winners for those that live in Canada.  The brand is Ivanka Trump.  The model is Kaylynns.  The material is a suede design with a metallic alligator like toe.  These ones are red but they have other colors.  The heel itself is 4.5 inches with no platform.  The shoes fit very well if not on the larger side.  Some people mght be able to go down half a size compared to what they normally wear.  And now for the price!

 

The tag said comapre at close to $200.  Seemed right for a shoe with Ivakas name on it.  Winners was selling them for just under $100.  But now they were on clearance.  I picked these up for $20!  When I got home I did some online research to find the real deal on these shoes.  They indeed retail for close to $200.  and the cheapest online I found was around $100.  Not bad for the $20 I paid.  Can't wait to try them out and about.
