Shoes

Filed under: Uncategorized — sashyjane @ 10:42 am

Since high school, I’ve been wearing sky-high, ridiculous heels. I’ve always felt more confident in a pair of show stopping shoes than I have in sneakers or flats. I remember one particularly ridiculous pair of Steve Madden wedges I had in high school that were outrageously uncomfortable. They had heavy wooden bottoms and a skinny white linen thong strap.  I’d come home from a long day of clomping down the halls with bruises across the tops of my feet but I thought they were stylish and cool so I didn’t really care.

 One afternoon, I was sashaying to my car after school carrying my books on one hip (I thought I was too cool for a bookbag) when I stepped on a big chunk of gravel. Since the soles of those Steve Maddens weren’t exactly flexible, my ankle turned and I hit the parking lot pavement knees-first. My books scattered everywhere and my knees gushed with blood.  That embarrassing experience still didn’t stop me from wearing those and other ridiculous heels.  A broken heel bone, however, did put a damper on my sky scraper ways. At least temporarily.

Since my cousin is getting married this weekend, I went shoe shopping on Saturday and FINALLY didn’t have to only try on sensible shoes!! I bought 2 pairs of wedges and one pair of Fall/Winter heels. And I didn’t pay full price for any of them! 

Black Patent Leather Tahari Wedges – $42.50 at Stein Mart

Gold, Ruffled Guess Wedges – $25.00 on clearance at Stein Mart

Brown Leather Nine West Heels – $30 on clearance at Shoe Studio

I wore the patent leather wedges on Sunday and I thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of being back among the tall people. What are you most comfortable in? Sneakers? Flats? Wedges? Heels? Flip Flops? Chacos? Bare  feet?

  2. Just wandered over from Jules’ blog; love every pair you posted, but those gold wedges and brown heels are especially calling my name!

  3. The higher the heel–the better. If I can add 4 inches to just my legs, I’m taking that opportunity and running—or strutting with it!

    And if those shoes start ahurtin’…you know which little sister wears your same size shoe and also happens to love each pair that you purchased. I believe you know my address. I can reimburse your for postage. :)
