Who has bought some new shoes

Recommended Posts

Those looks very unique, @mlroseplant. I like the tan color and the buckles & straps. And even though not exactly "cheap" - what a win price-wise too. 

happy heeling!

Nice sandals, once they are stretched enough you're going to love them. I like heels like that because I stand for 4 - 5 hours at a time, (see today heels). Get yourself some shoe stretchers (high heel type) and slowly stretch them.

They might have been a display model that they couldn't sell in a clearance.

Probably some dark denim, or black skinny jeans. Something like this...

Bailey,

Those skyscraper heels will be a perfect match for your top. That's the way I like to dress with my shoes matching my top.

Happy Heeling,

Went shoe shopping yesterday to Marmi Shoes, my favorite shoe store.  This spring they came out with a style of sandal called Maysa, by VanEli that I really liked.  The shoes were a bit pricy (but excellent quality) so I held off on a purchase - even tho I was tempted!  This week they went on sale, so I put on my gals jeans, a pair of two inch heeled slip on sandals (an earlier Marmi purchase) and went shopping.  I have been at this Marmi store before and have been treated very well.   When I walked in the door I was greeted by two very nice ladies, one whom I had spoken with on the phone last week.  She went and got the sandals, I was not sure if I would be a size 11 or 12 - they had both - great.  The 12 fit perfectly, and I had to decide the color, black or brown.  I almost got the brown but stayed with "basic" black.  Three other female customers were also shopping in the store at the same time and did not seem to care.  One of the ladies did look at me and said "cute shoes."  

Really love the sandals, they are a slip on toe loop style with a 2, maybe 2 1/2 inch block heel that is very walkable and looks great.  The upper is soft leather that holds my foot securely, no flapping sounds.  The sole is leather too, for good traction.  

The Marmi staff is wonderful as well.  The lady assisting me was patient and helpful, offering sound advice.  I tried on several sizes and colors, she said she wanted me to be happy with my purchase.  I am.  

Here is a picture of the sandals, I will post a pic of me wearing them at a later time.....   have fun.....   sf  

PS  Marmi has most of their shoes up to size 13 in varying widths.  They have a nice variety and are well made.  Check them out.

No flapping sounds? That's no good! I've rejected shoes because they don't make that sound. Actually, no, I haven't, just kidding. But it's always a bonus if a shoe sounds nice in addition to looking nice. With a soft soled shoe, I find the flapping sound neutral to annoying, but with heels? There is no happier sound on earth. Flap-click...flap-click...flap-click...!

Mlrose...  Well, maybe there is a little bit of flapping sound...  ha ha...   I have another similar pair of VanEli sandals (pic below) with a kitten heel that makes a LOT of noise, not so much of a flapping sound, but the heel clicks are very noticeable.  And I kinda like it...  smile....     have fun...  sf

After some early grocery shopping this morning I stopped at a garage sale on the way home while wearing these older shoes.

I then got lucky and bought three new to me heels shown. I expect the young 20's lady knew I was buying her shoes for myself. They all fit great.

My last pair I tried to purchase from Express sold out before I got them...waited too long.

But I just bought these Jessica Simpson Dany Platform Sandals. Should get them next week, I sure hope they fit. Went up to a size 11 since JS's tend to have a small toe box. I know too chunky for some of you - but these are heels I wear and wear and wear; 6 inch heel, 2 inch platform.

Cali,

I thought of you when I saw the JS "Dany" sandals both on the Macys website as well as on the zappos website. This is a relaunch of the same shoe which sold so well back in 2012 and 2013 I believe. I managed to get the "Dany" in cognac. Despite the height that sandal really was comfortable. I have never experienced a small toebox with JS sandals. The ones in my avatar are JS sandals as well. I know you'll like them. HinH

I bought these of Ebay the other day. With the warmer weather I needed a pair of summer pumps! I was wearing them while watching TV when my wife first saw them. She loved them and was disappointed when she couldn't get a pair in her size!

How fortunate to find nice heels in your size at a garage sale

Since your wife is THAT cool I would search the net for some really colourful pumps in her size so you could surprise her. I think you could find something in fairly fast order. You two will then have some real eye candy to watch tv during those famously long North Dakota winters. 8) HinH

I buy her heels from time to time. She comments that she can't wear them like she used to so she tells me not to buy her heels any longer, but I still do.

Well my Jessica Simpson came in today and I had an adventure when I picked them up.

I'm normally a size 10 but I got a size 11 hoping I could get my toebox into them. I've tried JS's in store and thought their toebox was too small for me.

As you can see below I tried them on. They are gorgeous quality shoes, BUT they just don't fit. The left foot is fine but that stubborn right foot is just too wide for it.  They must go back !   ;(

You never really know until you try. Sometimes they fit - sometimes they don't, but one thing is certain, there are many more to try.

You are right @Cali- they do look great. Pity they don't fit... but it sounds like you have the right attitude ;-)

Cali,

Since it's your right foot I have two questions BEFORE you return them. Could you have a callous on the side of your big toe which could be removed by soaking and giving your feet some treatment?  I can't remember if you go for regular pedicures or not. My other suggestion is to stretch them with a shoe stretcher. I bought one some years ago and can report they do work. You can stretch shoes a number of ways. 1- Simply insert the stretcher and let it stay inside the shoe vamp for about 12 hours or so. 2- Moisten the shoe vamp, insert the shoe stretcher and leave for 12-18 hours. 3- Moisten the shoe vamp, insert the shoe stretcher, and freeze it leaving the shoe overnight in the freezer. I've tried all three methods and all three worked for me. Shoe stretchers will NOT reduce the shoe a full size but have been shown to reduce by bout 1/2 size which is normally enough to make the difference. I chased this particular shoe style down a while before I found it so I'd rather see you try something before you return it. If you try method#1 it will show no signs of it if you had to return them.

HinH,

I'm high maintenance type of person with regular manicures and pedicures every two weeks, waxing when needed with regular medical tune-ups.

Good try HinH, but they're going back. My right foot is shorter (by 1/2 size) and thicker. I have an extremely high arch and what they call a High Volume toebox. I have yet to meet a pump I could fit in.

I have stretchers (I just posted a picture of my stretchers in another thread) and have used stretchers on other heels but there is not a snowballs chance in he_ _ that they could stretch those Dany's out that much. The picture below shows how my foot curls up to fit in. So back they go.  There will be many more shoes that fit so why worry about one that doesn't.

I've just taken delivery of these 5" heeled sandals from Amazon. They're really easy to wear and I'm a little bit in love with them :)
