Important shoe question

Post by Princess foofypants »

Say "someone" is pushing 50.Is about 5'10" without shoesIs basically a suburban housefrauIs not known for her coordination.Not say that "someone" bought these shoes...http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c150/ ... .jpgShould this someone realize that these are not appropriate footwear for middle-aged women and return them, or should she keep them? If she keeps them, should she go out in public as a 6'3" Amazon tottering around in studded shoes, or should she wear them around the house whilst cooking dinner?

If she keeps them, should she go out in public as a 6'3" Amazon tottering around in studded shoes, or should she wear them around the house whilst cooking dinner?All I know is this: If she's already bought them and if she likes them, the right answer is, "You look great in those shoes." :D

Wait...you're expected to walk in those?I thought shoes like that were only worn while sitting and...uh...doing other things that don't involve being on one's feet. :-

If you can walk in them*, then you should definitely wear them and know that you will look truly fab.*I don't walk much and can only wear flat shoes while doing so but I wear shoes like the above while sitting in my chair. And I am pushing 50 as well.

If "someone" bought those shoes, they must have spoken to her, in that deep, secret, silent language of footwear... it would be disrespectful to turn one's back on such a connection.





As for when to wear them -- the occasions will announce themselves. Maybe a little "do" at the Kennedy Center... an audience with the Pope... the Indy 500... you'll she'll know.





But definitely for cooking dinner! ;;)

My mom faced a pickle, trying to wear nice shoes to greet my dad when he came back from a months-long tour of duty at sea.Imagine wearing those shoes, Maru, and walking on a wooden dock with gaps between the boards.http://www.topperfloats.com/images/navydock.jpg

Kinda like walking in heels on cobblestones!My biggest shoe issue is wedges. I can walk in stilettos, but I have really big feet and in a wedge my foot in bigger than a step. Causes a weird level action almost hurtling down them.

Say "someone" is pushing 50.Is about 5'10" without shoesIs basically a suburban housefrauIs not known for her coordination.Not say that "someone" bought these shoes...Should this someone realize that these are not appropriate footwear for middle-aged women and return them, or should she keep them? If she keeps them, should she go out in public as a 6'3" Amazon tottering around in studded shoes, or should she wear them around the house whilst cooking dinner?I borrowed my daughter's shoes that were very similar.1. If you have developed bunions, be prepared for two weeks of bunion pain. Didn't hurt when I was wearing them, just afterwards.2. Depending on how thin one's legs are, any age can pull these off. 3. If you wear hosiery with them, the studs will ruin them the first time you cross your legs. If no hosiery, then you will get scratches. 4. When I put them on, I have one of my kids steady me until I overcome my vertigo.I love the higher heels, they just don't like me. I had worn them to the funeral for my Stepmom, my Dad, who is my heighth at 5'4" begged me to take them off and come back down to his level.The biggest plus, Hubby finds shoes like that to be a total turn on.

Tink,No bunions. Legs are not thin, but ankles are. Will likely wear with a plain black just below the knee dress.The kids steadying you maked me lol. I'm already up in the clouds without shoes so no vertigo. It is hard bending down to feet the cats from that high up however.I think the bf kinda likes them. He was there when I tried them on. He bought shoes too. Ugg-like slippers. He is more practical than me.

I was at a friend's house last week and their 13 year old son came in the room asking if he could buy a new pair of shoes. His mom told him no and that he had enough shoes. He said he only had two pairs of shoes that fit right (10.5) and all the other shoes are size 8 and 9. His mom said two is enough. He replied, "THEN WHY DO YOU HAVE LIKE 30 PAIRS OF SHOES IN YOUR CLOSET!!??"Her answer? "Because I'm a woman." =)) Anyway, the real reason they don't want him to buy shoes now is because he's been growing like a weed (just a couple inches shorter than me) and he may need a bigger size in a few months.
To which Trump replied, Fuck the law. I don't give a fuck about the law. I want my fucking money.

My favorite pair of shoes, that is nearing retirement, is a pair of Calvin Klein I-don't-know-what-the-fuck-they-are that is a combination between loafers and sneakers. When new, I could get away with wearing these with a suit on a day I had to walk around a lot. From above, they basically looked like loafers. Also, anyone looking at my shoes when I'm talking to them can pretty much kiss my ass.By comparison, it appears women's shoes are designed largely by sadists, and for some reason, women accommodate these sadists by being deliriously attracted to shoes that appear to be designed by some kind of superintelligent computer given a command to design shoes that are completely incompatible with the concept of "walking."
