You have to start silly. I can't wait to hear what you say. You are THE shoe expert.

I have to think about it though! I have about 10 pairs that I LURVE, and I need to decide on one...

ETA: This is what happens when you have around 140 pairs of shoes...

I love my Dansko clogs-the kind with the closed heel. I could wear them all 24/7. I refuse to wear them with skirts though...big Glamour no there....

I love my back flats from target.
They''re cute and have a slightly pointed toe and look good with everything. Best of all they were only $16. Win.

However, I have been coveting these babies for weeks. Thoughts?

They start at $19.99 on amazon!!!!!


Yeah I''m a spaz...
YAY, approval! Thanks guys. I soooooo shouldn''t get them because I might be homeless in 6 months butttt... butttt...

TWENTY DOLLA?! I think I''d take a size 6, although I can''t really know I guess until I try them on. I am usually 6-6.5. I could justify them maybe by wearing them to Senior Ball this spring....hmmmm. I have some dressy events coming up.

Do we have some pics ladies?

Problem is that I have a lot of favorite shoes. Crocs for everyday, heels depending on what occasion and outfit I''m wearing, my -40 degree REI boots for when it''s cold, flip flops during the summer...

What type do I pick?

And do you have a dress yet Wishful?!

I don't have a dress yet. It's a "ball" type thing... sort of like prom for college seniors.
I was thinking something I could wear again, maybe black and above the knee. Every girl needs a little black dress, right? I've got nothing in terms of nice stuff, so I definitely have to buy it. Hmm, maybe something like this.
I'm not looking for anything super-nice because I simply can't afford it. My budget is under $40, preferably under $30. Cheap year. You know, trying to avoid homelessness in the coming months, etc.

I love my Sam Edelman flat sandals for summer because they go with everything and Havaianas flip flops because they are comfy. For winter I love my Uggs because they are so warm and keep my feet from getting snowy!

Fashion wise...

My Manolos I got for my wedding...They are my first pair of Manolos and they match my dress PERFECTLY

Not the most fashionable shoes, but some of the most comfortable!







I try to wear them as often as I can.
(And of course they are polka dot
)

These are my two faves (sorry, can't pick just one!!):

Left, Charles David. They're a sample sale find and they are SO SO COMFY! The comfiest heels I own, hands-down.
Right, Bobbi Blu something-or-others. Again, really comfy... low heels, slightly dressy color/sheen, and great to wear when I want to dress up bye only just a little bit.

My crappy torn up black and white Roxy (converse look-a-like) sneakers. OK, that''s not very sexy, but some of the very best times in my life happened in those shoes. Every time my fiance and I go on a trip, we just pack a back pack and those go on my feet. I''ve been all over the US in them and have taken many a dance class in them when I was packing too light to bring my real dance shoes to New York City. They cost ten dollars and have lasted for years and years, and they are THE most comfortable thing to ever have been on my feet. When they are too torn up to wear anymore, I''ve already decided they''re going in the chest of stuff my fiance and I keep.

Oh heck, this is sad. I used to buy shoes on a "these are gorgeous I''ll find something to wear with them!" basis, but now it''s more of a "crap, my black flats are worn out, now I need ones to replace them" so finding a favorite isn''t quite as fun.

Before last summer, my faves would have been my "study abroad" shoes - Italian wedges with thick straps - but they broke and I was super sad - and when I went shopping for a replacement, I couldn''t find "fabulously chunky" the way they were...until I found these: strappy crocs. OMG, I love summer now (maybe not as much as Italian wedges, but way more comfy!)

I want to see these Kate Spades Namaste!!!

Yay! Jewelerman, we need pics....

I think my avatar shoes are probably my signature shoes...

But if I had to choose, I think I''d pick...my wedding shoes! Probably because I almost went blind making them...

Ok, can''t post pics...

I have this pair of flats form Born. I got them after looking everywhere for nice shoes I could wear to work (I love my danco''s but they don''t work with skirts). I asked the sales guy to just "find me" a pair of nice shoes I could be on my feet in. He brought out these and told me they were the best selling comfort shoes. They were black paten leather with a black regular bow on the part the covers the toes. They are beautiful. I could not believe they were comfort shoes. I bought them, and after breaking them in, they are my favorite, for both work and play. They are cute and do not hurt after a many hours of standing. My dream come true!

Of Freke, I have to start breaking in the riding boots. I am afraid of how much it is going to hurt...I am such a wimp! But I am back home now, so I have no excuse.

Alrighty, I love shoes but I don''t have a huge collection. My favourites are:

L.A.M.B. Katellas from ebay
Vagabond boots (these are 3 years old and I love them salt stains and all...)
Miu Miu heels that live in their original box. They are the only heels I can wear for a whole night and they go straight back to their box when I take them off.

Oooh this is hard. Like Freke I have an INSANE amount of shoes. My default favorites are probably my Jeffrey Campbell wingtips. They just go with everything and I can''t remember a shoe I''ve worn more in recent years. (I''m kind of fickle and I don''t usually wear the same shoes a lot.)

And my newest fierce faves are another pair of Jeffrey Campbells that are a perfect knock off of an Acne shoe from last year. They''re so rad and they pretty much make every outfit!

And my wingtips, except I changed the laces to regular dress laces with no metal things at the ends.

Ditto. I wear my Dansko Professionals day in and day out. They horrify my co-workers but are so comfy I ignore the comments.

This is fun. I LOVE shoes...and because of this have a lot so this is a hard question. I just bought these in a dark green color and LOVE them. They''re super comfortable. But for something more casual I love my flats

Gypsy~ I love ALL of those you just posted. I may need to do some shopping while DD is napping!!
