Shoes [Feb. 28th, 2008|10:05 am]
Lanette
Well, I have so few shoes that fit, and my feet are covered in blisters. While I need to go shopping for athletic shoes in person, I'm buying Mary Janes online. I actually just made a decision for myself.

Here are the contenders:


Decision=I'm buying these. My old Mary Janes are broken beyond repair and I need them.
In the category of "wear with jeans ultimate comfort" we have:

Dr. Marten's Classic Mary Janes (which I know I'll like and will fit) for $93.95.

I ordered these to battle it out for comfort. IF the more expensive ones are worth the money in comfort, I keep them, otherwise, they go back.
for $59.95

for $103.95

Decision=The below shoes were eliminated as fun shoes can wait, but I decided to order them anyways because I got a raise, so why not?
In the category of "for work with dresses and skirts":
for $82.95

I've always been a huge fan of doc's so I'd say go for them.

I tend to be (at least with footwear) a function over fashion kind of girl, because the fashion ones get worn once, and then never come out again... :/ I'm too much of a wuss for fashion I guess, lol.

I love Mary Janes. What brands are #2 & #3?

I've had my best luck, dress-shoe/comfort-wise, with Docs and Danskos. I ADORE my Dansko heels! I also have had great luck with a brand called Bjorndal that seems to be exclusive to Rack Room Shoes. They make a lot of hippie-dippy styles, but occasionally they have some really nice ones.

Fitzwell and Rieker. I had Dansko Maryjanes, but they broke, and now they are too big. I loved them.

That's the curse and blessing of having a teenager. :) I'l always love Mary Janes, no matter the style. Besides, kids are wearing freaking leggings lately. Been there, done that, regretted it later.

Do you still have the Hale Bob pair?

I lust after those so badly...there is a boutique in downtown Kirkland that I pass on my walk and they have many pairs of GORGEOUS Hale Bob shoes (so if you want to try some on before you buy them, go there! It is the boutique by the bar just on Market Street). I want them so badly...but they do look rather narrow :(

Re: Do you still have the Hale Bob pair?

Yes! However, I have to sell them. They are long and narrow. I"m going to put mine up on ebay one day as they are too big (when I get around to it, it takes forevah for me to).

While you're at it you should create a listing for the new shoes. ;)

Re: Do you still have the Hale Bob pair?

Well, those have free shipping for the return and a 365 day return period, bucko, so I thought about that. Hey baby, are you feeling better? I'm WAH tomorrow.

Re: Do you still have the Hale Bob pair?

I've had a couple of crackers and some water so I'm feeling pretty good. I'm looking forward to some lime fruit bars tonight.

careful with the docs now -- they moved manufacturing to China and they are falling apart a lot more quickly now.

I have a couple of many pairs of cute mary janes -- I have Fluevogs ($$$), Danskos ($$), Borns ($.5), Kenneth Cole Reaction ($.5) and Berne Mev($). My docs died a sad death.

Thanks for the warning. I have always LOVED my docs. They are the "go to" shoe if I have a bad pain day, so I do need one pair that fits. I hope they won't fall apart.

I will keep my fingers crossed -- I still wear a pair of docs I bought in '94 (before the manu move)!

If that last pair is Bobbi Blu, then they're on clearance at Macy's for something like 80% off original price. I almost bought them, then opted for a slightly different version... :>)
