Who has bought some new shoes

Recommended Posts

As Payless is in its last days, I found the Christiano black stiletto plain pumps HABIT in a 13.  They were 80% off with another 25% off that particular day. I was unable to try them before purchase and they are a bit tight but could get them on.  They have a set-back heel which provided a different feel to my walk.  I believe they were listed as a 4" heel but as you know, that is on a size 8.  Not bad for $5.65 instead of $34.99.

Here is my latest acquisition.  I picked these up in a thrift store for $15.  They are black snakeskin pumps with a heel measuring just over 4 inches.  The brand is Sam and Libby.  They are extremely comfortable to wear.  And they are in excellent condition.  I can see these being my go to heels.  they will get a lot of use.

Bought these shoes at Payless two weeks ago, the "Bree" flat in white. Sure, the chain is going out of business, but they're still selling shoes, in most cases, at discounts as high as 40 percent, and I found these to have been cute, so much that I bought a pair in black, spending a hair under thirty bucks for both. I wore the shoes on a jaunt yesterday, they were supremely comfortable and easy to wear, I'll be putting these shoes in my summertime outing rotation.

Nice wedge heels HIH. I like your pedi too. Nice color, just like mine. I like the bright red color on my toes. OK on your anklet too. Did you wear the ensemble to the wedding, that you mentioned in another post?

Happy Heeling,

They are comfortable and the neutral colour will go with anything. Didn't wear them to the wedding as it was a former co-worker. I have, however, dressed as my alter-ego and attended some outdoor weddings. It is fun just like going anywhere in heels.:fine: HinH

Sure they seem to be comfy and fun to wear, I liked the look on your feet too.

I see that you like to wear skirts or is that a dress?

Thanks/Obrigado. It is a dress I've had a while. Have only one other pair of heels with this colour in it. I did just my toes this colour though. HinH

My latest purchase from Payless as I'm taking full advantage of their going out of sale. These shoes are the "Paige" sandals in white with 2 1/2 inch wedge heels, they caught my eye because I found them to be cute, and were 50 percent off at just $18 bucks, after taking them on my 500th jaunt today, the shoes were easy to wear and comfortable. By the by, I liked the sandals so much, I bought a pair in black. I'll show them off at my earliest opportunity.

Jeff, Just now saw this post, I had already commented about your new sandals over at your "jaunt" thread.  Cool sandals!!  I also have two pair of the Paige wedgies and really like them.  Very stylish and comfortable.  Plus the lower heel (2in+) does not make me look like a huge monster walking down the street!!  ha ha.....   The wife even likes them, wanted to get her a pair but she's not into ankle strap shoes.  Have fun in your new sandals...   sf

Thanks for the kind words, I certainly enjoyed the new shoes. Funny thing, once upon a time, I didn’t at all like sandals, now they’re practically all I wear during spring and summer, from flats to heels, and I have both, sandals are awesome!

Another new purchase from Payless as really cute shoes don't have to have or need heels. Case in point, the "Corey" flats featuring a patent toe cap with a snazzy buckle and a patent section on the back as you can see below. I wore the shoes on an outing yesterday and they were quite comfortable and easy to walk in. Most enjoyable!

Finally decided to try these from Italian Heels. 150mm, so a challenge. I’m hoping these make 5” heels seem easy.

 Good luck, they are hot. I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off them if i saw you out and about. Somehow i think 5" will still be your staple though.

My latest pair of sandals is somewhat unusual for me for a couple of reasons. Number one, they are not mules, which I usually prefer, and number two, I paid quite a bit more than I am usually willing to pay.

I regularly browse ebay, usually looking for certain things (like more mules or clogs), but every once in a while something just catches my eye. When I saw these Alaïa sandals, I knew I had to have them. Thick straps, just the right tan color, high but not too high wooden heel, and just a look of quality about them. However, I then noticed they were Alaïa, so I was afraid to look at the price. I think they initially wanted 175 USD for them. Not too bad, but after getting my Jimmy Choo pumps and being somewhat disappointed with them, I wasn't going to pay nearly 200 bucks with shipping for just a whimsical feeling. However, I did put them on my watch list, and there they sat for several months, being listed and re-listed without selling. Finally, they dropped the price down to 110 USD, and at that point I offered them 85. They let them go for 96 USD plus shipping, which as I recall was about 15.

I surely shouldn't have done that, but it was a months-long process, and I thought they could be a rather practical addition to my collection. And the fact is, I just really liked them. They spoke to me. A few days later, the reason why shipping was 15 smackers became obvious. They came in the bulkiest, fanciest shoebox that I've ever seen in my life. I don't know if the box is covered in actual leather (I think it's imitation), but the little belt that holds the thing shut is real leather. Affixed to the box is a tag that reads "Barneys New York, Size 8 1/2, $975.00." JESUS, I thought to myself, I've hit the Big Time here. And then, a second later, who the f*%& would pay a thousand dollars for a pair of sandals? And then not wear them?

Anyhow, on to the particulars: 4 1/2" heel, a sort of tiny platform, but it's not really a platform, just a very thick leather sole, of the thickness you'd find on a men's dress shoe. It's arranged in such a way that there is about 4 1/4" of effective difference between ball of foot and heel. The heel itself I have no idea what to call. It's not really a block heel, not a cone heel, just a tapering, wooden heel that slims down to about 7/8" by the time it reaches the ground. Super nice. Now for the bad news: They're a little tight. However, I still have hope because they are real, thick leather straps and they didn't even have any signs of toe prints on the insoles, and hardly a mark on the heels, just a little scuffing on the leather sole. They look like they were worn once or twice to some sort of special event. Therefore, I have every confidence that they will stretch a bit over time. I will not be using the Steve Method to stretch these (wearing them in the shower). I'll just have to be patient and disciplined and wear them for very short periods of time frequently.
