Default Shoes I love.



They're pink, they're satin, they're ankle straps.

J'adore!

I see it now.

Meh...they're just OK to me. They seem to clash with the dress, even though there is pink in the dress.

I hate that child-knock-kneed-pigeon-toe pose all the actresses and models are doing recently.

True love cannot be dissuaded.

You no-socks-wearer, you.

I keep seeing girls on campus WALKING like that...and I know they're not all pigeon toed.

There's something out there for everyone...and some folks like it with socks, and some without.

Sorry, ninja, but I gave those a FUG. Zoe Saldana usually wears great shoes, though.

Is this a rate Ninja's shoes thread or a post shoes we love thread? I'm not sure, so I'll do both.
I like those shoes Ninj, but I couldn't wear them. The ankle strap cuts at my ankles the wrong way and makes my already thick calves look even thicker.

I'm currently lusting over Alexander McQueen's spring shoe collection, inspired by butterflies, particularly these, even though the ankle strap probably wouldn't work for me. But honestly, I probably would never wear them. I'd put them in a glass case and just look at them.


and I might maim someone to get my paws on a pair of Christian Louboutins. Those red bottomed black patent leather pointy toed heels just do all the right things for me. One day, one day I will own a pair.

And what's wrong with not-wearing-socks anyway?!?!? I'm pretty sure the woman in your picture is not wearing socks either.

I'm with you on Louboutins, and in theory I kind of like that McQueen pair, but I can't help thinking that they make it look like her feet have some sort of infectious disease.

They look Grecian to me, in the classical sense. More art than wearable. So, I agree with em (the fantasical).

Pic of the Louboutins?

My love for Zoe's pinks remains undaunted.

Beautiful!!! The Pink Satin ones wouldn't work on me but I love them nonetheless.

I attached a pic of some of my babies below I keep them on display because I like to look at them in winter when I can't wear them.

Ruthie Davis is my new fav shoe designer ... Simply gorgeous!!!

Exactly. The entire spring shoe collection is like that. They are absolutely beautiful, but definitely not practical to wear. Just stunning to look at.

Louboutin's are far more wearable. It's just that signature red bottom that really gets me. Depending on the ones you get they are wearable on a daily basis. I just want a classic black patent pair. They would be the last pair of shoes I would ever need.



But if I could get another pair, besides the black pointy toe, I would also get these:

Are they practical? Not at all. Are they shiny and fun and wonderful? Absolutely.

Wow! Those blue ones look like they're made from something extinct and undersea-dwelling. What is it? Are they nubbly? Shiny irl?

I have a question about the styles Nej posted: what is it called when the ball of the foot area is stacked like that? It's like a platform front, with a spiked heel. I don't think the gold pair have that feature, but the other three pair do.

They are quite shiny IRL, but are nubbly/grainy? I'm not really sure how to describe it, but it's definitely not smooth.

And it's called a platform. It's so you can wear a 4 or 5 inch heel, but it only feels like 2 or three inches on your foot because of the platform. It helps with being able to walk, and also with avoiding serious foot cramping/inability to walk.

So, it's not a traditional platform, which had an even sole and heel, however high. It's a hybrid platform/spike.
