You can never have too many…June 14, 2010
Remember a few weeks ago when hubs promised to take me shopping and buy me whatever I wanted? Well, of course I chose shoes! And not just any shoes, these Louboutin Bianca platform pumps that just came out that day and fit me so well and I want to wear them everywhere! LOL, longest run on sentence ever but that’s how I feel about them.
I get a lot of questions about the comfort of designer shoes and I’ve written about it before, you can read about it here. But overall, I do think that Louboutin makes the least comfortable shoes out of all my designer shoes. These Biancas are more comfortable because of the platform on the front but for shoes like my Insectika or my Feticha pumps that don’t have the platform in front, it’s a lot less comfortable. Louboutin makes the arch look really good but it’s that arch that makes it uncomfortable. Nothing that I can’t handle since I’ve been a daily heel wearer for the past 10+ years but if you are less experienced with stilettos I don’t recommend Louboutin pumps to be your first. I do have to say though, my nude Simple pumps have been one of my most comfortable pair of shoes that I owned so I can’t generalize and say ALL Louboutins are uncomfortable but for the majority that I own, that is the case.
I am really really tall in these which I love. It’s nice feeling like I’m a normal height 🙂 These are probably the highest heel that I will go though. I do have to say driving in these shoes was quite an experience. I’m used to driving in heels but these ones are so high that I couldn’t get my foot positioning right with the pedals so I kept on adjusting.
These are from the Fall 2010 collection which I see that he’s done quite a few other pairs with this flannel like these cute booties and these insane boots. I can’t seem to find mine online but you can get them in black leather, which I almost bought. But I decided to go with these ones as I knew that if I didn’t buy them at that moment, they would be gone the next time I went to look. My size does not last long at all so if I want a pair of shoes, I can’t hesitate. That’s why I always shop at Nordstrom as their return policy is so good that I feel confident that if I buy them right there and decide later, I can always return with no troubles. Otherwise I’d either A) regret not buying them when they had my size or B) regret buying them and changing my mind later on. Most of the time, I don’t return it, when I get them home how could I take them back? But it’s nice to have the option.
As the post title says, you can never have too many and it’s true, no matter how many pretty shoes I have in my closet, there are more that I always want! Dang those shoe designers for always coming out with pretty shoes!
