Heels are relative. This is the highest heel I can manage unless I'm seated
Number one footwear need on my shopping list is a dressy white, off-white, or cream CLOSED-toe shoe to wear with dresses and skirts for Spring and Summer. It's a big hole.
Must be pretty, refined, stable, secure, a good fit for my narrow feet, and above all VERY comfy. I live in the city and am on foot 99% of the time. I need to be able to walk Yorkies Sam and Jo, run errands, walk to appointments, walk to restaurants, and I walk fast. I also don't want to pay the earth for them.
Tried and returned quite a bit. Tried a few pairs of slingbacks. Unstable and can't walk fast in them - (as I know from past experience but I tried again anyway. I am always trying, and trying hard!). The straps slide down the back. The shoes fall off my feet, unfortunately.
Unlike many, I enjoy a good Mary Jane. They work for my feet and style! To my eye, they are visually right on my shape feet. I got a suede toffee pair last year that are winners. After trying all sorts of other shoes that did not work, I ordered the same shoe in white. They have a dear little gold buckle:
A VERY good fit. Sized up half a size because they are short, and I have long toes.
I am walking around in them at home in my casual outfit with tiny in-house fashion stylist Jo. We are HOPING they pass the at home test. So far, so good.
Fingers crossed! xo
UPDATE: KEEPING THEM!
