Cruel Shoes

I thought I'd act like a lady and wear some pretty shoes to the wedding that we attended last weekend. The only problem is my current collection of shoes cannot be classified as "pretty." Comfortable? You bet. Functional? Absolutely. Croc-like in a lovely shade of blue? Oh, yeah.

I went shopping and found appropriate footwear for the special event. They complemented the gray pants I planned on wearing and they matched my handbag. Score!




I wore Pretty Shoes to the wedding and reception, and . . .

Holy Blister, did those slingbacks kill my feet. I will spare you a picture of my wound in its full glory (big as a dime, bright orange, and full of fluid), but . . .

 . . . here is the aftermath 5 days later.

I would really like to know if designer shoes are more comfortable than the cheapos I wear. I mean, do $650 Christian Louboutins feel better on the foot than, say, a $25 pair of heels from Famous Footwear? 'Cause, I'm telling you right now, if expensive pumps are easier somehow to walk around in, I'll gladly sell off my husband's John Deere tractor and use the money to buy myself some fancy shoes that won't give me blisters.

hahahahahaha! Sell your husbands John Deere tractor for shoes...as though they would EVER consider us buying a pair of shoes that cost as much as a tractor part! :) Cute shoes...sorry about the blister. Love the graphics though.

I really doubt it. My problem is that my feet widened during pregnancy and now I can't stand to have anything so much as touch the side of my foot.

I have one pair of shoes with a heel and they also have to have a "wide toe box."

Yes. It's just as sexy as it sounds!

Hope your blister heals quick!

OUCHIE!!! Isn't it sad that the cutest shoes ever have to be the most uncomfortable? And those are CUTE!

ouch. I have the same problem. I think it's just that you don't wear them enough. I have a pair that took 3 weeks of blisters/pain but once broken in are now my new favs. :) Cute blog!

At the recommendation of my bloggy friend Fadra, I'm going to try some Sofft shoes -- but they are around $100.

Am I the only one who always wondered how in the hell the girls on Sex and the City could trounce around NYC and never complain about their feet??
