Who has bought some new shoes

Here’s two looks with the JS Dany in black which I don’t think I’ve posted. Had the black ones about two years now. Quite high at 6.25”/16cm in sz11 but very stable. If at an outdoor event this would a great choice if not wearing wedges.

I wasn't looking for a new pair of shoes, but I have always wanted a pair of high heeled penny loafers. I thought I had found such a pair a year ago when I bought some New Religion shoes of that description, but they had a fatal flaw: No matter how many fitment devices I used, I walked out of them every other step. So I got rid of them. Then, a few weeks ago, these Stuart Weitzman Mocup loafers in olive green suede appeared in my Poshmark feed. Not my first pick of colors, but a unique addition to my collection. The seller kept dropping the price over a period of time, and by the time the price got down to $27, I couldn't resist. And this for Stuart Weitzman!

What I did not realize is that these shoes have evidently never been worn. Not a mark on them anywhere, top or bottom, even though they did not come in a box. They are rather more attractive in person than I thought they would be from the photos. Their appearance is super narrow, even though they don't necessarily fit that way. They have a 5 inch heel with a 1 inch platform, which at one time was a staple of my collection. The heel is 3/4" wide, and is simulated stacked leather.

I wore them outside right away, which is something I used to shy away from doing until I vetted them properly. I can kind of tell fairly quickly nowadays. I wore them for several hours with nothing negative to report.

Just came in, JS Xona. They fit but are snug, so I will wear them around the house to break them in before spending a day in them. I'll post a picture with these and shorts in a week or so.  Looking at another JS wedge sandal now.

And I thought that I was through buying clothes.  I already have a closet full, but , yesterday In bought a pair navy blue of men’s shorts and a white cotton golf shirt with navy blue flex that will match perfectly with my white and navy blue 5” ankle strap sandals.  And I thought that I was too old to think about coordinating my outfits.

Being mentally comfortable in your own mind is the key to wearing heels in public.

I have 8 to 10 JS. Not all JS fit me. The Dany's don't fit me. The Xona was on a sale plus I had money off and free shipping. However waiting for a sale is a two edged sword, you can get a good price or they can run out before they go on sale. How much of a gambler are you? It's the old risk/reward game.

Here are my latest. I saw these at a local thrift store weeks ago. The fit was a tad tight in the toebox. Nothing major but just enough to where I thought I might not be able to wear them for any length of time, so I decided against them. They were a size 9. I am normally a size 9.5 to 10 but depending on the shoe style and brand, I can also fit into some 9's. I definitely regretted my decision later because it was love at first sight. And I loved the toe cleavage they provided. And they were in pretty good condition. They looked like they were only worn a handful of times at the most. As luck would have it, I went back today, and they were still there calling my name. I tried them on again, and this time, they fit a little better. I could not pass them up twice, so I happily paid the twenty dollars, and they went home with me. I'm hoping that the first time maybe my feet were just having a little swelling problem that day. Or maybe after some wearing, they will stretch themselves out a little. The shoes are Jessica Simpson brand with a thick ankle strap, and the heel measures 4 and a quarter inches.

I really like that color, I'm sure it will suit you well. I have a similar pair in that color, only mine are Steve Madden. I hear what you mean about the toe box. I have three pair of these D'Orsay type pumps, and I have the same problem with all of them, which is that they cut into the base of my little toe. I took the shoe stretcher to the worst of the offenders, which solved the problem somewhat. It may be that if I wore this type of shoe more often, it would cease to be a problem. I find this to be true in so many cases, thong-type sandals being a prime example. Good luck with your purchase!

Bootslover29,

You look really great in a skirt and heels! I hope that you get compliments on your look as I do wearing a skirt and heels. Some of my lady friends say that I have nicer looking legs than they have. Continue with the great pics of your skirt and heels.

Happy Heeling,
