I have bought a couple of new pairs of sandals, one pair because they were just really hot, and the other pair for practicality.

The first pair are Charles David, model unknown. They have a full 5 inch heel, and a 5/8" platform. This is the only pair of slingbacks that I own, or will probably ever own. They were just so nice looking, I couldn't resist them. The only problem I've had is that they're size 8, and I really needed an 8 1/2. Steve helped me solve this problem by suggesting that I soak them in water while wearing them. That seemed to do the trick, and the straps stretched enough to be comfortable, and luckily, there is no "overhang" on either end. I just love these sandals. They are nice and high, and the curvature of the heel is just what I like.

The second pair I bought because this is the season for outdoor barbecues, and I wanted a pair of wedgies so that my heels would not sink into the soft earth. We've had quite a bit of rain here this summer. They are BCBGenerations. Again, I don't know the model name. I'm not a big fan of wedgies, but these looked very cute in the pictures, and they did not disappoint. The downside is that they're not real leather, and they're a bit heavy. Still, they're easy to walk in, and they're much better on the grass than my other pair of wedgies, which are higher, and have a much thicker platform. The heel on these is right at 4 inches, with a 1/2" platform. A little on the low side for me, but I still love them, and they serve their intended purpose. I've worn them a lot already.

Nice shoes….  The first pair would be way to high for me, but they look nice.  The second thong style are my favs, I could see me wearing those.  I prefer thong styles anyway they just look good…..   Enjoy your new shoes !!!   Take care, sf

Some nice used heels just arrived from an E-Bay auction. $13 including the shipping. Heels are 5" but with the slight platform these are so easy to walk around in, especially after wearing the many Pleaser Sexy 20's I recently acquired. Boutique 9, all leather. Average quality.

Well, I crossed over to the platform side of the fence.  Never been a big fan, but I liked the style of these and they were on sale at Sears today for $25.  Bongo brand, Zelda is the style name.  Heel is just over 4.5", and the platform is about 3/4".  I usually need a size 12, but these fit really well for an 11.

Quite elegant, Ron. Do you plan to wear them in public or just in private?

Steve, these will remain private.  A bit too feminine for me to feel comfortable in public.  I am waiting for a pair of None West boots I bought on line to arrive.  A chunky 4" heel that I will be much more comfortable wearing in public.

Ok, Ron. Thanks for the reply. Enjoy wearing those lovely sandals, no matter where you wear them. Show us photos of the None West boots when you get them. I presume they are 9 less than Nine West, right? Nine minus nine is none.

 

Just having fun with your typo! Never take me seriously! LOL

Sorry if I disturb the thread, but I could need some help on buying this strappy sandal from LightIntheBox:

Sorry for a danish URL, but you can hopefully find the corresponding English version.

 

I need help in choosing the size. Does anybody know if their sizes are small or normal? I use EU41 for male shoes using a sock, but when I buy high heel pumps, which I use with nylon socks, I choice one number less - EU40.

I would stick to your size. I think with heels that high your not going to notice any difference in wearing then. Also check out their returns information and see if you can return them if need be.

Here is my latest purchase.  They are from Aldo.  The model is paules and the heel measures 4 inches.  It must be the design of the shoes.  4 inches is normal for me, but wearing these, the heel seems quite high.  The shoes themselves are a take on the Stuart Weitzman "nudist" sandal which costs hundreds of dollars.  The nudist continues to rule the red carpet and is a celebrity staple.

 

I had been wanting these for a while and they finally went on sale.  Usually once they are on sale they don't have my size though.  To my suprise they did!  I tried them on and they looked as good as they fit!  It was funny.  As I was tring them on the sales girl said they were too high for her.  She would not be able to wear them all night.  I just kinda laughed on the inside.  I happily paid for them.  The best part of me buying them was the price.  They were originally $80 but on sale for 50% off.  Plus they were an additional 25% off.  So I paid less than $40 for these.  Sweet!

Picked these up from Payless.  They are super cute and super classy at the same time.

Bought these shoes from Payless yesterday, the "Karen" pump in 13 wide. My first ever pair of peep-toe shoes, I found them to be quite stylish with the ornament on top and four inch heels. I'm most eager to wear these classy looking shoes with hosiery (like in the enclosed picture) and my dressy pencil skirts.
