PORN!!!

Sorry for the one-day delay. It makes me sad when shoe porn Wednesdays are late. I have many excuses, but none of them good enough to account for the fact that I have let you all down.

First – for Carrie. (This makes me happy since when we met, I immediately insulted her choice of footwear. I’m classy like that.) She requested “a pair of pumps that look awesome but don’t kill [her] feet, aren’t so high [she] risk[s] falling off of them and are versatile enough to wear with jeans.”  In fact, these might also work for Snowdance who asked for shoes for  “a new public transportation commuter who needs to balance suits and business attire with comfortable shoes made for lots of walking.”

Neither lady mentioned any price requirements, but as always, I try to keep everything under $100. In fact, my most comfortable pairs of pumps were all around $50 (I’m sure if I could afford Louboutins, that they would win, but I can’t.)

Anyways. Comfy cute pumps with a mid heel that look good dressed up or down. (As always, click on the shoe photos to browse & buy.)

The thicker heel adds stability that the height might take away. If you have doubts about wearing heels, always start with a thicker heel to get used to the way it makes your feet feel before switching to stilettos.

My two favorite most comfortable pairs of pumps are Kenneth Cole Reactions – including my awesome stilettos (pair #3).

These are on sale on PiperLime right now – but only in brown & only in two sizes.

All of these shoes are under $100 and are brands that either I can personally vouch for their comfort or people I know have vouched for the brand comfort (in the case of the Anne Kleins at the end).  I generally go for a 3+ inch heel, but these are all under three inches. The only thing I would say is that sometimes Steve Maddens (in my experience) run a little narrow, so if that’s a concern, try to find the shoes either in person or from a site that has free shipping both ways….and always shop around. The Anne Kleins are in sale in a size 7.5 (or something that’s not a size 6) on Amazon for $30, I think.

I’ve had great experience with Zappos, Piperlime & Endless.

Next week – we look at other special requests & talk more about shoes that are both cute AND comfy.

Feedback? Are these what you had in mind? Let me know if I didn’t meet your expectations – and I’ll do better next time!
