Hi shoe divas,

 

I love the shoe photos, especially those boat shoe heels....I would totally wear those :D.

 

So we are in my favorite shoe time of year....mid autumn.. when every store has summer shoes on extreme clearance :cool:

 

I just bought several for my upcoming trip..including a pair of boat shoes (the traditional variety;)) I will post the photos later.

 

Happy Shoe shopping!!

No one has been shoe shopping:)?

 

I realized I had Not posted the faux boat shoes I bought...

 

 

I actually have been wearing them in my none cruise life a bit...They casualized....(is that a word?) Some of my summer dresses I have been wearing.

 

 

I found these blue and white striped cuties (amongst others) this weekend ....I have been feeling very naughty-cal....(I want to roll my eyes at myself ):rolleyes:

 

I'm thinking I can wear them with an all white outfit to give it some interest....

tmee, LOVE those blue & white heels, so cute & yes, they will go great with an all white outfit. I also like the boat shoes, but for some reason they don't look right on me!

Cute, tmme! I love the sandals too and the deck shoes look sweet AND comfy. I ended up with arthritis in the base joints (ball of my foot) of my middle toes on my left foot and now cannot wear anything above 2.5 inches (unless it's a platform and that's got to be a wedge too). I donated two full black garbage bags to a charity in May that hosts a fab shoe sale to raise money (over $11,000 this year) for the local women's shelter and community foundation. At least I won a draw prize (besides feeling good about the cause and re-homing some of my favorites). I got 3 hours of cleaning by a local 'green' cleaning company. It was tops on my list of possible draw prizes, so I'm pretty stoked about that. I have bought a few new pairs of cute wedges and some funky Eurostyle shoes similar to John Fluevog's stuff.

I'd take a picture but my phone fell off the wharf at the lake last week and I haven't been able to retrieve it yet - I have hopes of rehabbing it but can't get to it due to high water.

So happy to have found this thread. I think it's the perfect place for shoe advice. Here goes: I have a navy blue dress for dress up night ..what color shoes would look the best. It is very dark blue thanks, ladies

Good morning, I think silver and navy go very well together. Not sure the material of your dress or how dressy

it is but a pair of silver sandals would be my suggestion:).

I got some free shoes at Bealls: Clarks Breeze Sea in Silver. I love Bealls Bucks.

mimi217, can you post a picture of your dress or direct us to a link to look at something similar online? If it has a lot of detail or you are wearing 'statement piece' jewelry I'd go for a classic nude sandal or D'Orsay or peep-toe pump. I'd wholeheartedly agree with Lois R on the beautiful silver if your dress is a classic unfussy style. One should really have one main focus - fab flashy shoes, or statement jewelry, or major ruffles/details on the dress. It could also depend on how many dress up nights you have and how much room in your luggage/stateroom - you might want shoes that do double duty, lol.

I do have silver strappy shoes . I do like the nude also but don't have any. My dress isn't super dressy but I think the shoes and jewelry will dress it up enough. I don't know how to post a picture on here. Thanks ladies!

I purchased these J Renee shoes for my son's wedding. Very comfortable and good ankle support for dancing the night away. I think they are a nice alternative to silver shoes.

Hellow fellow shoe divas! Quick question...need advice. I love my heels...all of them! But since I have stopped working I've stopped wearing my heels unless I attend a special event...and then OMG the pain! Never had this before!

 

Any advice on those inserts I see advertised everywhere? Has anyone tried any of these?

 

Help as I refuse to give up my Louboutin's

 

Thanks so much!

Donna

I've found the only good fix is to wear the shoes for several days prior to the event. That way you get your tendons stretched out again. I've had to lower my expectations and heel height. :(

I definitely want to be part of this club...I have loved looking at all of the shoes here! Currently checking out those Shoe Bakery ones now!

 

@Realblonde474 I absolutely love my SuperFeet high heel inserts. I have had a similar issue since I can't wear heels to work (high heels and construction sites don't mix well!), and these make heels so much more bearable when I want to wear them.

 

My husband and I have our first ever cruise coming up next summer, and I am currently trying to decided how many pairs of shoes I will need to bring. Since we're going to Alaska, I'm currently looking at getting a good pair of hiking boots that can double as urban walking shoes. I feel like many are very utilitarian and not the fabulous shoes I like to wear, but I'm finding some options that I like. I also am looking for a good pair of "on the boat" type of walking shoes, maybe like boat shoes or flats. I do think I will bring my favorite pair: custom red strappy Jimmy Choo heels for formal night, but I need to pick out a dress to match them. I'm open to ideas so that I can wear these again since I do not get many chances to do so everyday (and I promised my husband I would wear them again as a condition of buying them for our wedding!).

 

As a bonus, here are my second favorite pair of shoes I own; my snowboard boots.

 

Here are the Choo's. They have a gold plaque on the back with our wedding date :).
