Whaou! Amazing look! Are they easy to walk with?

The sole is very slightly bubbly and not as solid but that aside, I'm very impressed with them. Easy to walk in, fit nicely and don't hurt my feet in the long run.

Dillard's was having a nice clearance sale. Got both pair in the mail this week. And of course they're peep toe.  FYI Make sure you know your size in the brand you're buying because anything discounted 65% or more is non returnable.

Those look very nice.  I like the strappy and thong style sandals.  That is one problem with online end of season sales, most are non returnable.  Two weeks ago I took advantage of a great sale at  Marmi Shoes, but was lucky and the local store had my size to try on before buying.  

Enjoy your new sandals, they look great!  sf

Admittedly I didn't know my size in these two brands but I sized up for width and made the gamble(I'm an 11W and these are 12M).  The combined price for both was less than 1/2 the original price of a single pair. I couldn't resist the temptation.   Fortunately it worked out.

I like them but they look to be a bit large in the back.

Yeah that’s a problem I seem to have finding shoes that are comfortable in the toe box and snug at the back 😒 Although my very old black ones are snug and from the same place! I guess that’s what happens when you try and find cheaper large size shoes!

Wow, I love these. So gorgeous with their pointy toes and ultra thin steel heels. I would be proud to go out in these.

OK on the heels. I like the fishnet hose, which is a favorite of mine.

Happy Heeling,

They made these special for me. I ordered a fully coated heel but they initially asked for another 10 bucks. All I can figure is they fitted a "to short" heel on them. It would have cost them to make them right. I refused to pay more so they offered the metal heel. I actually love this even more. I just asked if these can be made in white, black and beige. If they will I'll get them too.

These will be going public very soon. Notice the high arch and not straight back placed heels, well designed.

I contacted the manufacturer through alliexpress. They only advertise these in blue and black and without the metal heels. They agreed to make me these in black, white and beige so I ordered 3 more pair.

Out aerating the lawn?  Good luck getting the mud off of those white heels.

Yeah I sank in just as the photo snapped. It is very dry there was no mud stuck on the shoes luckily 🙂

Here are my latest. The brand is Boohoo. The heel measures close to 5 inches. And without a platform they feel high, just the way I like them. These are also the first ones I've seen with a triangle toe box. And there sizing is weird too. I am usually an eur40 which I believe is a 9. But these are marked 8/41, and yet they fit me perfectly!

Hi all, it's time for another new pair of shoes! I am actually several pairs behind, but these are special because I think I have finally found a pair of nude (or beige) pumps which suit all of my needs and desires. Well, except for one, and that comes at a price I'm unwilling to pay.

I had bought a pair of Steve Madden "Daisie" pumps in nude a while back. They were a very pinkish beige, but that didn't bother me. They were super pointy, had super thin heels which approached the 5 inch territory, and were super easy to walk in. The only problem was that the sock liner of the shoe had started to deteriorate due to age and exposure to air. Or sunlight. Or something. I'm no chemist, but the insides of these shoes were peeling off, and it wasn't because of heavy use--there wasn't a mark on the soles or heels. I was/am unable to find another pair in that color and in my size. The other model that is of the same basic idea is the "Vala," but it has an extreme setback heel which I think looks ugly. Naturally, those can be had everywhere for a little bit of nothing.

Anyway, I ran across these Madden pumps on Poshmark which were called "Klory." They looked to be the ticket. High, thin heel, pointed toe, but less extreme than the Daisie. Supposedly, they were brand new. The seller wanted something like 80 bucks for them. "Nah, I'm not paying quite that much for a plastic shoe that I can't try on," I said to myself. "If they come down to 50 bucks, then we'll see." It took a while, but the seller did eventually come down to 50 bucks. I couldn't go back on a promise, so I bought them, and I'm glad I did.

Although I have yet to truly wear them outside, I can tell you that they seem to have all the good characteristics of the Daisies without the peeling insides. Actually, I like them better in some aspects. The not-quite-4 3/4" heel (119 mm to be exact) is incrementally thicker than the Daisie, at 5/16", or 8 mm, but more importantly, it curves inward, toward the front of the shoe, which I find more attractive and desirable than a more set back heel. Fit is what you'd expect from a size 9 Steve Madden, so that was a relief. They seem a little bit steeper than the Daisies, even though the heel height is virtually the same. I'll have to actually wear them somewhere to comment on that, but the heels are rock solid, so any awkwardness I may experience is user error, and not the fault of the shoes. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.

several new mules from AliExpress. These have very high and well supporting arches, incredibly comfortable. The blues ones are why I now have these others. My light beige ones are at work, pictured the other day.

Can't wear your steepness but still not bad. Had a long conversation with the check out lady at the grocery this morning. She came around to see them, black ones, up close. She asked about my red Mary Janes. I told they "They are doing fine".

Got these today on a local buy and sell. They are black patent ASOS brand with a 4 1/2" heel. They are brand new. They have weird sizing however.  They are marked 8 on the bottom.   But the ad said that was equal to a US 10. I check their website and sure enough 8 and 41 is a US 10.  I still wasn't sure if they were going to fit though. So I tried to talk them down on the price. Lucky for me, the last shoes I bought from another company had the same weird sizing, And those fit perfectly!  So I was willing to take a chance if the price was right. I ended up paying only $25. As soon as I got home I tried them on and wouldn't you know it, a perfect fit!  And they are surprisingly comfortable too.

Really attractive and classic stiletto pumps. Wear them in good health... and often.

These are getting a lot of wear. Obviously very eye catching without being too high, three inches block heels. Bought from the men's collection from Asos Design.

Got lots of compliments from men and women as well.

They're very plastic/synthetic on the upper and rubber soles but well made. Very comfortable. I really like them, don't know how much time will last.

Yes indeed!  These are the ones I have seen online and admired!  Perhaps not top quality/leather, but good looking and affordable.  I like the idea of the rubber soles, a little better grip and quieter.

Yes, I like to wear red  boots. I have two pairs one in a western style and one in a Steve Madden, block heel knee boots with a platform and 4" big block heels. I like both pairs and am wearing them out now that fall has arrived. Usually get compliments from both women and men always positive.

Happy Heeling,

bluejay
