This is...my favourite pair of shoes


OK, I'm finally getting around to part 2 of this week's This is... theme (chosen by Hip Hop & Banana Bread). It's funny really, that I don't at all consider myself a 'shoe person', as I really don't own many pairs of shoes. But I have realised that I do REALLY LOVE the shoes I do have.

I decided on the shoes above (by Think!)as my favourites, as they are the first pair of heels I have ever owned that are ridiculously comfortable. Granted, it is not much of a heel, but it's enough to look dressy, and yet I can still walk as far as I need to without my feet killing me, or my dodgy hips getting cranky with me. Plus, they look great with everything - dresses, jeans, pants. What else can I say - I really love 'em.

And yet, I seriously considered these other two contenders:


In Summer, I pretty much live in my Birkenstock sandals.


Ditto for these black Camper shoes in Winter.

And I simply can't do a post about shoes without showing you this pair, that I have only worn a handful of times, and yet they are the most perfect looking shoe. I feel like Alice in Wonderland when I wear them.



That is, if Alice in Wonderland wore RABBIT TRAPS SNAPPED ONTO HER FEET!!!!!!!!!


Although they look great, these Allanah Hill shoes with the little ladybugs on the toes take the phrase 'suffering for your fashion' to a whole new level. The girl in the shop assured me they would stretch and become really comfortable. They didn't. I had them professionally stretched too. I nearly cried when it didn't work. So I have a love/hate relationship with them I guess. I do wear them on occasion. But only to seated events......

Ohh.. ok so now we have similar taste in shoes too!

I love those heels. They look like they'd be great to do a bit of salsa or samba in.

My birks are what live on my feet all summer. Same style as yours, BUT I notice, yours have a black inner soul! Wish mine did, they're beige and boy are they stained especially after trekking around Vietnam and Cambodia for 3 weeks last year.

AND, you love Camper! Now this is getting scary! Mind you, I don't own a pair yet, I gaze longingly at them and then can't make up my mind....

I like the look of your very favourite pair of shoes. I could do with a pair like that... they even look about my size! Heh heh...

That's a fair collection of shoes for someone who says they don't have that many!! ;o) That's already more than me!! I live in my birkies all summer too... they're actually really similar to yours.

Your fav. pair of shoes are about the right heel size for me as well. The ones you have look very comfy and not to high.

The red shoes are super cute. I love the lady bug detail on it...

Birkenstocks. Yah. I put the cork paint on every summer and say a little prayer that they go another season. Four summers of day in day out wear and they're still going strong.

a wonderful variety of comfy and gorgeous you have there. That alanah hill sure knows how to do whimsical - those shoes are amazing. sounds like you've tried everything you can to stretch them. I've heard wearing thick woolen wet socks helps to stretch leather shoes. tried that yet?

Each pair are great in their own way.

How amazing are your Alice in Wonderland pair?!
