Here is my latest purchase.   I found these in a local thrift store.  The Brand is Delicious and the heel measures between 4 and 5".  And the best part is, I paid less than $10!

I bought a pair of heels the other day. I found them in a second had clothing store and knew I had to but them, $10, who could refuse! They are 'Glaze" brand. Never seen the brand before, probably a "store" brand.

Here's the latest shoes I bought and wore on an outing today: the Walking Cradles "Minx" Mary Jane pumps in black leather with three and a half inch block heels which I ordered from Zappos. I've never owned MJ shoes and this offering intrigued me enough to order a pair, the  styling was sharp, the fit was good and comfortable, and the heels were nice and loud on the pavement.

Image file sizes FAR too big. 10mb for 1 post is just too much!

Almost forgot about these gems. First time got the nails done too. Interesting experience.

 

I also thought these were fun.

 

 

Had to have these in my collection. Gotta have one or 10 stripper heels.

Folks... If you insist on uploading images that are 500, 600, 700+kb each, then they will be deleted and if it keeps happening, well, there just is not enough hours in the day nor money in the bank to pay for your excessive storage demands, specially when nobody is contributing to running costs. I've just deleted 1 post alone that had 10mb+ of images in 1 post.... They were all over 750kb per image.

Get them down to less than 100kb per image please.

Here is my latest purchase.  I abolutely love these!  The are Ivanka Trump brand and they are in mint shape!  The only pronlem is they are small and tight.  They are not my size and are roughly a half size too small.they fit fine in the back but the problem is the toe box. My toes are pretty cramped.   I am hoping they stretch out a bit.  I knew they were small when I bought and tried them on.  But I just couldn't bear the thought of passing up these beaties and letting someone else have them!  Plus I bought them second hand and only paid $15.  So if they don't work out it is no harm no foul.  But I sure hope they do!  If worst comes to worst I can admire these on a shelf or something.

Cute heels. No way I would fit into them - they look like a squeeze! Hope they stretch!

Hopefully, they will stretch out with wear. I have not had good luck patent leather stretching out, especially with the leather puckering like that. If it were regular calf leather, I would say absolutely, just be patient. Maybe you will have better luck than me.

Nice heels at a great price. but I agree with @mlroseplant , I don't think they will stretch enough for you. The bulge in your foot above the puckering says it all.

Life's too short for heels that hurt.

I’m not sure the model, but I got a used pair of Jimmy Choo pumps off TheRealReal for under $100. They are already broken in and have a sole protector. I’d prefer non patent leather but that didn’t stop me from wearing them to walk several blocks to dinner in Key West last night.

KW is a double edged sword for heels. You won’t have any issues with people, but the sidewalks are a mess. My blocky heeled boots were a lot easier for getting around earlier in the day. 4” heels will get people’s attention, but not one dirty look.

I picked up these last week.  Bandolino Formeza in size 11.  A very generous size 11.  Heel in size 11 is right about 4"

Got those in the mailbox a few days ago. Managed to shoehorn'em on, need some stretch-out to be perfect. Are soaking with water and wear them on the best way? Or should I put them in the oven 100 deg celcius/200deg farenheit/80deg reamur for 15 min and then put them on?!

It's suede leather.

It's suede leather.

I would be very wary of putting them in the oven, regardless of temperature.   If it really is suede leather (and not an imitation), then it should stretch reasonably well if gently warmed (e.g. with a hair drier).   But soaking in water and then wearing them (e.g. with thick socks) should give some stretch.   Or you could apply a stretching solution (ideally one intended for suede) or a mixture of water and isoproply alcohol ('rubbing alcohol').   Some caution is needed if staining is to be avoided and glued joints are not to be weakened.   Good luck!

I should have mentioned that for my pair, the area across the top of the toe box that is textured here is white.  I couldn't find a photo of the black and white that I have.
