Shoes....have you ever bought a pair just because?

Okay so we love beauty products and we have admitted to buying things just because we we were drawn into the packaging, etc.  So have you ever bought shoes that weren't practical just because you liked the way they looked?  I saw these beauties and had to get them.  Totally impractical with the 4 1/2 heal but they are so sexy.

Re: Shoes....have you ever bought a pair just because?

I have the opposite problem. My feet are narrow with high arches (the high arch thing actually does well with heels though I think). My foots so narrow I slip out of my shoes. I can usually wear about a 7-7 1/2 in tennis shoes. In just about everything else I've got to aim for about a 6 1/2, and they still slip. I can't go any smaller though without having toes jammed in my shoes.

maybe you have to buy shoes with the straps around the ankle. Smiley Wink

Re: Shoes....have you ever bought a pair just because?

My ankle is to small most of the time. I have a couple like that. I had to give the strap more holes to make it fit. But yeah, I generally need a shoe with something holding me in it.

I had to get my mom those silicon guards for the back of her shoes so she didn't slip out of them.  It worked pretty well since she is kind of in-between sizes.

 

Re: Shoes....have you ever bought a pair just because?

I have those as well.  They seem to work better with some shoes more than others.

@ Esdee (and all of us with muscular calves) - Surprisingly, Steve Madden boots have been a great fit this year. I bought the Leader boots and they fit perfectly, which is amazing because I can never fit regular size boots. (The Fergie cuff boots also fit larger and are quite wearable.)

 

But yeah, Fergie shoes.... *sigh* I pretty much love everything she's ever put out. I can't help it. My wallet hurts every time.

Jessica Simpsons shoes are pretty hot too. Smiley Wink

Not as much recently since most of my shoes now are for work, but many, many years ago, I bought these Prada shoes off the clearance rack at Nordstrom.  

Haven't worn them in the past 8 years and really should throw them out or sell or whatever.  I didn't keep good care of them after I stopped wearing them, so now they're in pretty bad shape.  But when I saw them, I just had to grab them.

Re: Shoes....have you ever bought a pair just because?

My size 10 feet are difficult to shod, so when I find something that fits it's mine! Teaching has curbed my search for high heels but I have a lot of cute flats and wedges, however I don't buy shoes that are impractical (I.e. hurt my feet) no matter how great the shoe may be. Mt days of wearing pinchy shoes are far behind me.

Guilty as charged! I was really into the ikat/tribal patterns last year, and I bought these Chinese Laundry pumps thinking I would wear them to some fun holiday party....sigh...
