Your most outrageous shoes

What's the most frivolous/outrageous etc. pair of shoes you own? I'm fairly conservative when it comes to shoes so I'll live vicariously through your posts Smiley Wink

 

Here's mine (found the right colour this time as I posted the wrong colours in the obsessions thread). As you can see, I love earth tones and army greens!

 

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

I'm really enjoying reading everyone's shoe descriptions so far <3

 

@officegal Yeah, they're pretty useless for running Smiley Tongue But they're cute and comfy so it's ok. Love how your pink shoes have those colourful soles. A good excuse to pair that with super pink lipstick!

As for your dilemna... I have been thinking about it, and I wonder if Timberland doesn't have a good pair of comfortable yet styling knee high boots? Their boots are great quality... I also wonder if your leather flats could be sprayed with a fixative. (Not sure, but I think they also make fixative for artificial materials now too...) That might work for a drizzle, but probably won't do much on a day like today's torrential downpour!

@beckpoppins What an awesome vintage find!! I can totally see them in a retro look paired with a flouncy white skirt and lady like top and pearls. Or maybe skinny jeans, skinny belt, clean white tank and a giant grey fur stole. I love the steampunk look too...

Thanks for the brainstorm! I have a pair of kick-**bleep** wellies, actually (Michael Kors). It gets a bit stifling sometimes, though, so I don't like wearing it unless it's torrential. I was looking for something closer to ankle length for the light rainy days. In fact I was out looking for a pair yesterday and ended up buying makeup instead. LOL

 

I loooove seeing everyone's shoes! It's great to see everyone's sense of individual style. Smiley Happy

 

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

I absolutely LOVE my Dr. Martens Hello Kitty shoes. 

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

@ pocketvenus - I totally have those shoes and have to admit they're so comfortable. Is that Naughty Monkey? They make such cute designs that are perfect for those days you want to "Stand out".

 

@pandapple6 - I love how they have all the characters on there, especially the Little Twin Stars. Dr. Martens definitely knows how to make some heavy duty shoes. Growing up we had to wear them with our school uniform and I got excited everytime a catalog came out. I heart your shoes! Smiley Happy

 

As for my most outrageous shoes ladies, unfortunately I can't take a picture of them because I was forced to throw it away. Does anyone remember those shoes that lit up by L.A. Gear? My sister and I went on a random trip to Target and actually found a knock-off Target brand that sold those shoes in our size. You can imagine the looks we got from wearing shoes that lit up everytime you took a stride. LOL! We were like toddlers wearing those shoes and getting a kick out of seeing them light up. Smiley Surprised

 

Anyways, those were my most outrageous shoes that I had to get rid of. Let's face it, who wants to see a 27 year old running in shoes that light up. . .. Not that cute!

 

BTW - I love all the pictures of  "Your most outrageous shoes" Please keep posting! 

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

@tiffanybt Yes, they are by Naughty Monkey and I agree, pretty comfortable. I loved that criss cross design and wish I'd picked up another pair in a different colour... Totally remember LA Gears Smiley Tongue

 

@kristamarielund Love the cubist pattern on the last pair, so fun!

 

@mermadelove I love how Fleuvog takes the period-ish stuff and the retro looking styles makes the design distinctly contemporary.

This is one of the things i LOVE about him!!!!!! I have the cutest periwinkle slingbacks! Low heel. Very 50's housewife-- except that they have reflective grey racing stripes and the periwinkle leather shimmers!!! Yes, REFLECTIVE RACING STRIPES!!!

They are at my other house or else I'd post a pic!

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

Just found this thread and finished reading through the whole thing.  Soooo many great shoes, ladies!!!

@mermadelove:  My daughter has a pair of the Danskos that look just like the ones you posted except hers are the swirly blue-green shifting color ones.  They are supposed to be great for nurses, but she says hers kill her feet.  I wish I had her size foot and I'd buy them from her cause I love them! Smiley Happy

@kristamarielund:  You have some awesome shoes! Smiley Happy

@pandapple6:  Very cute Hello Kitty shoes. Smiley Happy

I'm going to go now and try to take pics of a couple of pairs of my boots to post...wish me luck...I'm not so great with the camera (ha, ha!). Smiley Happy

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

OK, so I was trying to think of some over-the-top shoes that I could post and my hubby walked through the house and asked me what the heck I was standing there looking puzzled about (ha, ha) so I told him I was trying to think of an outrageous pair of shoes that I could take a pic of.  He said, "Why don't you just take a picture of some of your everyday shoes, honey?" LOL!  Anyway, here are some of my favorite shoes and boots that I wear a lot.











But then I thought of one really outrageous pair of boots that I have never worn out of the house.  My hubby bought them for me and they were bought NOT to be worn outside of the house (ha, ha)!  Here they are:



Sorry, I didn't mean to make this such a long post.  Anyway, that's a glimpse of my shoes (ha, ha)! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

@tenngal: OOOOH, those are outrageous shoes!  I really like the first pair of Pucci-type cowboy boots, oh, I can just picture me at a horse event in those! Eventing has very prescribed dress and it is extremely conservative (think fox-hunting type clothes). Oh, those are to die for!

 

Thanks for posting your shoe pictures, they are so wonderful!!!!

Re: Your most outrageous shoes

Ilove you, tenngal.you made my day.  enough said. Smiley Very Happy
