Mine All Mine

It’s a day of accomplishing too many things, but this was one of the things.

Pair of black, 2.5-inch, modified Louis heel Mary Janes with gray stripe for lacing.They make me very happy. They hardly feel like heels, and they’re as adorable as they look. They’ll also last forever.

I may have to swap out the laces for ribbon, though.

    You have some lovely shoes, lady. You have no reason to envy me mine. :)

    Yeah, but none of them are Fluevogs!! Some day I shall join the ranks… :)

    Practical & stylish: WIn!

    I’m sure they will serve you well.

    The last time I wore heels I chose some silly 8″ monstrosities; nearly broke my face and the knees have still not forgiven me…

    Damn it! I want to wear cute heels, but I have joint issues and am afraid that I will kill myself wearing them.

    Does anyone know how one can figure out how high a heel is on a shoe? Like, does it say somewhere on the box? On the shoe? Do I need to bring a tape measure? I want to go to the store and see if I can wear 2 inch heels without pain or awkwardness.

    Oh, those are the cutest things EVER!

    Very nice. I am jelly.

    @Eristae, try checking online first; descriptions will include the height of the heel.

    Or you could bring measuring tape with you to the store.

    My feet are shot to hell (one fallen arch, and a tendency to plantar fasciitis,) but I can wear low heels–2″ or under.

    They’re gorgeous.
    Have you already been thoroughly chastized on account of the feeding children in Africa?

    The above happens when you combine two sentences into one
    pick from:
    the children in Africa you could have fed
    the starving children in Africa

    OMG! If I throw some money in your tip jar will you spend some of it on your next shoes? That’d be awesome!

    Eristae #5 Measure 2″ on your thumb. Remember where it falls. Now you have a handy tool that you can use at any time.

    I went to the Fluevog store today. I picked out four pairs I loved. I will buy a pair when I have the means to do so. If they work, I’ll buy the other three. I really hope these shoes are the answer to my foot problems.

    @Susannah & Stacy

    Yay! I will use those tips in my epic quest to find shoes that I can wear. Thanks so much!


    If you have foot problems in general, checking out Sanita and Dansko might be helpful. I have some of their clogs, and they are both comfy and seem to last until the end of time. Apparently nurses wear them a lot, too, in the name of being able to have something cute that can also be worn all day when one is on one’s feet. I also have a pair of Spring Step that are really nice, but I only have the one pair, so I can’t speak to them in general.

    Here are two of my favorite pairs of shoes (well, I think they are, anyway):

    Spring Step
    Sanita Dansko (these basically aren’t for sale anymore, which makes me saaaaaaaaad)

    As you can see, I like red shoes.

    I just bought some Sanita Koi Women’s Demi Jane shoes and am going to buy some Sanita Sangria Natasha heels once I find out whether or not I can walk around in 2″ heels without killing myself.

    . . . looking back on that post, it may have been TMSI: too much shoe information.

    I visited the sight.

    Talk about ,”Shut up and take my money”. Those are cu-u-ute.

    Oooh, yum. Love the little Edwardian-esque hourglass heel. They look comfy too.
