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.

@ 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.

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...

 

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

I actually have a pair of heels very similar, just with a platform, are stilettos, and no peep toe. These are actually very practical to me and I love rocking all my heels. Smiley Very Happy I have so many shoes, I need a separate room for them.

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

I have a second pair that have no peep toe too, I think they are Steve Madden.

Shoe love. <3 Smiley Happy

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

lol Half the shoes I own would probably be considered "impractical" by the mainstream. But I love them and wear them anyway. Smiley Wink

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

In the last 4 years, there is only one pair in my tiny collection that fits that description. Well, technically I bought them online expecting to wear them quite a lot, however I missed the fact that being size 5 in shoes, there is no way I can wear 4 1/2 inch stiletto heels without any platform. I put them on and it felt like I am walking in pointes (much like a ballerina would, but I am SO not a ballerina). I decided to keep them, since they weren't extremely expensive (and looked so cute on) and I've worn them out once in 4 years, but I can't force myself to get rid of them.

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

I bought these last week. LOL.

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

Umm I feel like 80% of my closet is filled with 'just because' shoes. I have SO many that literally are not socially acceptable for most of the daily situations that I'm in. Glitter, straps, tulle, crazy patterns...if it looks impractical chances are I'll love it haha. My logic is almost always 'well they might come in handy one day' and 9 times out of 10 they don't.

 

My all time favorite brands are Bordellos, which average in at about 5.75 inches tall. They're so cute!

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

I stopped buying shoes "just because" a few years ago. I have a pair of Jimmy Choos, Loubs, and Fendi that sit in their box & are never worn. I can only wear really comfortable heels for just a few hours. I think I'm the only person with high arches that can't walk in heels for hours.

I now rather spend my money on purses, besides most people never notice shoes.
