(The Return of) Shoe Porn!

You guys! I know – it’s been ages since I’ve done regular shoe porn. I was all angsty & sad that I couldn’t go out and buy all the pretty shoes.

I was totally not going to post shoe porn again until 6 months post surgery, when I can reasonably expect my feet to be normal-sized again and can start wearing heels. Which I had every intention of doing, knowing that in 5ish years or so, I’d have to have the same surgery on my other foot.

Well, surprisingly, considering how pain-free this surgery & recovery has been, I have decided that five years is waaaay too soon to do this again. In fact, never might be too soon.

So, in the interest of trying to put of foot surgery as long as possible, I am having to make a lifestyle change. And that lifestyle change is no more regular wearing of high heels (which sucks, I am barely 5’2″! I need extra height!) and no more pointy-toed shoes (my feet, they are tiny, and I love the extra length the pointy toes give me).

However, since I’d really rather be able to run AND never have foot surgery again, I have decided that high heels and pointy toes are going to be a sometimes shoe.

*sigh*

To this end, however, I need to find a new shoe wardrobe! (Bright side to everything!)

I think that very low heels will be okay – there is (as was pointed out to me on Facebook) such a thing as going too flat.

I am not buying any new shoes over the internet for a while, because I don’t know how they will fit, but here are a few future possible styles.

Let me know what you think….


PS – what do you all think of the cuffed boot trend? I think it’s cankle-making and hate it….
