Who has bought some new shoes

This is my third pair of Vera Wang Talli pump/loafers. I got these formerly 300 dollar shoes on Poshmark for 50 bucks, and I am pretty sure they've never been worn. I have two other pairs in black and crocodile print dark brown. These are plain brown, and are actually darker than the picture in the ad showed. My pictures here, depending on your monitor, are pretty accurate on the color. I remarked elsewhere on how inconsistent these shoes are on the heel height. The fit is exactly the same on all three pairs, but the heel heights are all different. My black pair has exactly 5" heels. The croc brown pair has 5 3/8" heels, a significant difference. This plain brown pair has 5 1/8" heels, a slight but discernible difference. What the heck? These are not cheap shoes, I don't understand why the inconsistency. They are all the same size, same model, same fit on my feet. The only difference is the color. A mystery of life!

Different production lines for different colors and weak quality control. Slightly different leather/materials may play a role.

I love these loafers. I think the only option now for me to have a pair is to order a copy to FSJ shoes. Same color

I have more shoes to show you! Since the wife is gone for three weeks, I have gone kind of nuts, and it's a good thing we're going to overtime at work starting tomorrow. There will be more to show in the near future, and then it will kind of taper off after that.

This is my third pair of BCBGeneration "Sarong" thong wedges. Unlike the previous pair of shoes I showed you, the Vera Wang loafers, I have bought three pairs of these for a completely different reason: The other two pairs didn't last very long, and I really don't expect to have much better luck with these. To be fair, the first pair I had I wore so much that they just got trashed after a while, to the point where they really weren't presentable out in public. Eventually the sole split completely in half transversely, and I binned them. I found a second, identical pair I believe on ebay, and I was thrilled. Unfortunately, since this model is quite a number of years out of date, the material that they are made of kind of self-destructed rather quickly. I've heard that certain kinds of fake leather deteriorate simply by being exposed to the air, and surely that was what happened to the second pair. Within a couple of short months, they too were not presentable in public. They were also binned.

Enter the Poshmark era. In general, I think they have nicer stuff on there, and it hasn't done my bank account any good. I've gotten into some other stuff besides shoes as a result, but that's another story. Anyway, I found yet another pair of these beloved yet despised shoes, only this time in white. And also I took a chance on buying size 8, rather than 8 1/2 because they seem to run a little big. That turned out to be a good gamble, because these actually fit better than the 8 1/2s. But really, how much of a gamble was it for a mere $15? I have never owned a pair of white shoes (other than tennis shoes, and I do mean tennis shoes) before, and I don't know how that's going to look in the real world. It feels more girly than what I've done in the past, but we'll see.

Specs on these shoes are 4.0" heel, 0.5" platform, all man-made materials. I am now down to only two pairs of "thong" style high heels. They're getting harder and harder to find in the style and heel height I require. Maybe someday I'll have to go the Peter Chu route.

Those wedgie thongs look nice.  But I am partial to thong sandals, love the look and open feeling.  Most all of my heels are the thong or toe loop style.  Have fun with your new sandals!!!   sf

Nice sandals!   My wife has some 'wooden wedge' sandals with plaited thong straps that I think you would like; I'll try to post a pic soon.   

I'm somewhat surprised that you have not previously worn white footwear.  I don't consider it essentially girly and there is quite a lot to be had in men's styles in the UK*, apart from the ubiquitous (and often tacky) 'trainers'.   I like my white loafer slip-ons and my Berkemann one-bar white sandals - both very suitable for summer wear.

First chance to get a good picture of my new spiked heel leopard pumps. Surprisely easy to walk in despite the fine tipped heel.

Thin heels don't mean hard to walk in. The rise is shallow, you'll go through tips quickly though.

My wife would tell me: “not on my hardwood floors after we spent a fortune refinishing them”

I have found this to be true also. It seems that other design factors in the shoes determine how hard they are to walk in, moreso than just the thickness of the heel.

Took me a few minutes to get the image up (work out how), but good results when I did. Classics.

My newest editions! They're from Amazon. Elizabet Tang Pumps, the quality is very decent for what I spent on them. And they're VERY comfortable too. True to size and so many different colors! I'll eventually have pics wearing them, but for now I am just obessed with them, my first pair of red pumps! ^_^ Only thing that is bothering me is the heel cap color.

i agree ,the heel cap (tip?j is not ok. You can easily change for black ones.

Some shoegeeking :giggle:  : my guess would be not real Louboutin. :) First hint is that they are red on the inside as well. And based on the picture on the previous page the finish of the sole at the arch and where it progresses to the heel just isn't perfect enough. The nose also isn't quite right for a Louboutin.

I hope they fit.  I have a 50%/50% luck with Jessica Simpson I plan to wear these with every thing.  Short shorts in the summer (if we can go outside) skinny jeans/leggings.

I have very few limits I put on myself.

As posted in the who has bought some new boots section, Zalando had a sale and I was very tempted and couldn't resist. I also got a pair of basic black pumps (please ignore the hair :oops: :oops: I have been a little lazy).

since some month I am a fan of the Sorbern Shop in Aliexpress.
I saw these Sandals in there shop and I had to have them.
the Heel is 18.5cm and they have a stable construction and they are easy to walk.

Came across Sorbern last night and had a good old look around. Some very interesting footwear there, you seem to have found something fun. The choice also seems to go on forecer.

I especially liked the stupid high 18cm wedge heel ankle boots. Completely impracticle but I thnik they look fabulously fun.

Wow, such insane heights! Pretty bold shoes with the pink color as well. I wouldn't be able to walk in those! :)

"I wouldn't be able to walk in those! :)"

Yeah, I doubt the statement by chrigi-ch that they are "easy to walk".  Sure, a few steps around the house maybe, but I doubt anyone could truly walk with any level of normalicy in a heel that high.   But hey, if it floats your boat, have fun.....

Do they come with sunglasses to block the glare?
