Who has bought some new shoes


Recommended Posts

Another Amazon splurge purchase. Was looking for another pair of wedges as I only have 1 pair in my collection. These are way outside my normal scope of style, as I prefer the classic looks, but these kept coming up as recommended ever time I went to Amazon & I finally said what the heck. They are from some fly by night Chinese supplier, no name anywhere on the shoe or the box, will have to look at my purchase history if anyone is curious to know.  They arrived pretty fast for overseas shipping. There was a strong chemical smell when I opened the box but it dissipated when i aired them out. These turned out to be pretty fun! The fit is excellent, with no sliding around when i walk. The straps are the easiest to fit up of any of the strappy heels I own, they are adjustable at both ends & stayed where I arranged them (I hate it when cross straps slide over to one side). The 1st few steps are daunting but i got them figured out soon enough. Wore them around the house for a few hours with no issues other than tired calves. I am happy I pulled the trigger on them. Gonna try them in public this weekend...

My red slings from OnlyMaker are an excellent fit. I also picked up a red MJ of the same style I posted the other day. Man I love these shoes. The red MJ's got a "I love your shoes" compliment from a

Just taken delivery of some Onlymaker 5" nude heels from Amazon. Size 9, heel measures 13cm.

Never say never.  If the girls can do it, so can we.

I don't feel like those are a whole lot wilder than some of your other shoes. Was it the animal print that made you think twice, or just the sheer mass of the wedge? Also, I can't figure out how you got your feet to go like that. Are you, like, insanely flexible?

Let us know how things go out in the real world. I've actually had some good luck with the Chinese stuff as far as comfort, and sometimes even durability. Then again, I've had some bad luck, as well.

Lol.  I was thinking the same thing!  As @chesterx mentioned, he generally goes for the classic looks, and I'd have to agree with him that these are a bit outside of that.  The print is not too crazy, but there is an awful lot of cork showing here, and a pretty large platform as well.  I'd think that these might appeal to you @mlroseplant :fine:.  I think I might get a nosebleed if I tried them....lol.

I have many wedges with this much cork, so I would wear these IF my toes could fit in.

I was wondering if you guys would catch on to the photo weirdness! I process my photos using photoshop elements. I was trying to merge two shots into one showing the front & the back to emphasize how frekin' tall they are. I use the panorama to do it automatically. It works great, but this time it seems to have gotten confused & instead of stitching them side-by-side as I was expecting it tried to merge them half-and-half. Done this dozens of times & its never given me results like this. I laffed when I saw it & thought some might find it funny too.

Its the sheer tallness of them with the platform that is not something I am normally attracted to, but these seemed to cute with the animal print to pass up. Once I got used to the height of them they are quite fun to walk in...

We all knew it was an assembled image. Well done.

It did look as though chester wasn't sure if he was coming or going.   But I was more worried about the misaligned skirting board behind!

Heck, I figured that was just a bump-out in the wall. Perception vs. reality? Haha! See discussion elsewhere.

It could have been a 1' wall perpendicular to the the walls you see that was hidden behind his leg!!!

And of course @chesterx bought two left shoes.

That happened to my wife years ago. She bought some high heels from Italy via internet, and the company send 2 left pumps. She complained and send them back, they apologized and send 2 right pumps. She send them back and the money was returned. Strange, but somehow also funny .....

I bought a pair of heels from eBay. when they showed up I looked the one over and slipped it on, then grabbed the other and not really looking at it slipped it on my other foot. The one shoe fit great, the other was uncomfortable beyond belief. As I took them off I realized I had two lefts. I contacted the seller and told them when I bought shoes I just assume I would get a right and a left. They were good about it and credited my money and told me to toss 'em.

Tina beautiful pumps, can you walk with them on?

Just got these black pumps and burgundy D'Orsay's. The green pumps are the same as the black ones, had them for about 2 weeks. Incredibly comfortable with heels just shy of 5 inches. The brand is KRIS & JESSI. I got these from Aliexpress and can't be happier. The green pumps made a splash at Buffalo Wild Wings a week ago Thursday.
