Theyskens Theory boots available here // House of Harlow flats available here

Isn't it just so heartbreaking when a shoe you love and adore...and research and hunt...and purchase and wear...ends up an unflattering dance of the Praying Mantis? There's absolutely nothing more unbecoming in fashion than a girl that can't walk in heels. And I think my day has come. I have to hang up my dancing shoes and embrace the fact that I just can't do heels anymore. Don't get me wrong - a monster platform, a thick wedge, a fat chunky heel - all day every day (just kidding maybe 6 hours and some Excedrin, but still). I'm going to need to invest in some nicer flats - first up, these!

My day has come too. I used to be stilettos for 8 hours, but now I'm always in flats. Actually I have to admit those flats are quite nice, but they look a lot like Tom's

dang, those boots look like they would be worth suffering for! i'm with you, though. i have more shoe-related scars on my feet than i'd care to admit, and now i live in tom's. i ain't out to impress.

Heels are for when you can be carried from door of house to door of car to door of venue by your bodyguard. I just look at my heels now - bar a few pairs that are ACTUALLY easy/comfy to walk in. Cons the rest of the way :)

My achilles tendon was inflamed last year and since then I'm only allowed to wear heels every now and then for the great occassions. I've been a high heels lover but when you are forced to wear house shoes that are three sizes larger than your actual feet in public just because it hurts so much that you can't wear anything thighter for 3 weeks, you begin to see things a little different....

I am the biggest punk when it comes to any shoe more than 2.5-3 inches and I actually have to walk in them.

nataliya said...

you're not the only one! my feet are so wide from years of skating in converse and vans sh8 his so once i became a grrl i just couldn't wear heels for more than 10 minutes...even wedges and platforms.

STOP IT RIGHT NOW said...

@nada - Wouldn't that be great to shit money? All the possibilities! Unfortunately I have a career and work full time to buy myself things. I'm old like that.

I came to this realization in 2011 and just got myself some nifty loafers.

Yes for flats! And yes for dressing like a boy. It's easier. I'm trying to remove all the bullshit of looking all frou frou all the time. Slowly but surely.

But hey, was that your handwriting?!? If so, get outta here! Meaning, I like. How's the carpal tunnel? Mine's killin' it! Yup, it kills... its more on the ulnear nerve. God, I'm freaking feeling all these old people syndrome. Speaking of seniors, my hips starting to hurt while lying down!? WTF... I thought I'd share while we're on topic.

Hunting for good flats is like hunting for a good man. Limited choices & nearly impossible.

I made the mistake of buying Wang's Jacquelin boots. 20 minutes in them and I'm dying. I have to sell them as well. Sad times :(. <3

I became that girl too this winter. I've not worn my Finsk ankle boots once for this reason. Makes me a bit sad.
