katlady:

Those are very nice...

i have searched and searched and CANNOT find the pic i am looking for... i have a pair of shoes nearly identical in style to those...but they're a dull bronzy-gold color and no rhinestones. They're beautiful-i got them to with my formal dress. Made by bisou-bisou paid 14.99 for them @ jcpenney on clearance.

gotta love those sales, woot!

they should have a shoe rental website like the purse rental website that Martha Stewart had on her show a couple of weeks ago....you'd be so happy!

Why would anyone pay $1050 for a pair of shoes?

My fantasy shoes would be track cleats that are ultra light, have great grip, and good looking.

Yo go girl, buy em!!!!! If I can spend $600 on a single diamond stud earring, hell, go for it!!!!

I have to agree with the post of track shoes. Anything over a 1" heel and I would probably have a hard time walking, that or fall and break my leg!!!! I am more comfortable barefoot or in sandals. Alas, in winter or wet weather it is running shoes (Nike and no other brand).

Ladies, be thankful that you have a "normal" width foot and are not a size that is hard to get, or worse, two feet that have opposite problems! I have a very difficult time finding ANY pair of shoes. Men's Nikes are the only shoes I can go into a store and buy--but only MENS Nike's because womens are not wide enough. I have one foot wider and one longer. Usually what happens is one foot is supertight and perfect length while the other is perfect width and floppy!!!!! I am betweena 9.5-10 and the one pair of ladies shoes I bought two summers ago I resorted to getting them a size 11 because 9.5-10 didn't fit well and the 11 was a good fit (until they stretched.

Wish me luck, I am on the search for a new pair of dress shoes as the last ones I tossed out after they just didn't feel comfy anymore after 15 years (maybe worn once or twice a year).

Those are indeed some hot shoes. Even if I could afford them , I'm sure that I'd buy at least 5 pairs of shoes with that money rather than 1.

Sorry, you couldn't pay me to wear those shoes! I would probably break an ankle before I got out of my cabin!
I am doomed to low heels, or no heels for the rest of my life.
Sequined flip-flops anyone?
