  1. I don’t know one woman that hasn’t went ga-ga over a shoe! Self included! However, as I get older I’m learning comfort has to be first. So now I’m more likely to splurge on a beautiful flat or wedge rather than a fly heel as well.

  2. For everyday wear, I agree with Erika – -comfort is key! But when it’s time to hit the town – - the stilettos HAVE TO COME OUT! Of course, price is also a factor. I have to be honest, I’ve only been to Marshall’s twice since they’ve come to BK and I wasn’t impressed…..I have to drive out to Long Island or New Jersey if I want to find some really nice pieces. So sad that when some of these stores come into more urban areas, they think we don’t want/need nice products in the stores.

  3. I was always fascinated with high-heeled shoes. My brother was so sick of me running into shoe stores at the mall that he stopped going with me. That’s cool because it gives me a chance to indulge my obsession unhindered.

    Have such a shoe obsession, like most women I’m sure! I definitely hit up stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx for great discounts and end of season sales. Comfort definitely has been key lately since I now take the train to work in NYC so that’s important.

    I like ballet flats, you can dress them up or down easily.

  6. I LOVE the shoe selection at TJ Maxx, I guess I am a Maxxinista :) It helps that they are super affordable too! I don’t have a lot of shoes but I am always on the lookout for a great pair.

  7. I’m ‘French Woman’ classic in style so I’m looking for well-made shoes that are timeless, classic in style and comfortable. I don’t like the idea of disposable apparel, which is what I tend to find at discount stores. However, I scored a well-priced pair of Manolos at Nordstrom rack a couple of years ago, so I tend to look out for designer shoes there.

    That said, I will be so glad when we get past this ‘hooker heel’ phase that’s been going on. I have seen some of the ugliest shoes around these past few years, and no can convince me that they’re comfortable, especially when you look at the wonky gait that most women have while walking in them. Personally, I think only drag queens can step in those things and make em’ look good!

      I completely agree with you on the frankenstein hooker shoe phenomenon that won’t die :) To me it is not a sexy look especially watching women walk in them and they are so not appropriate in some workplaces.

      I will also spend more money and select more classic styles for my black and brown heeled shoes. They get more wear and will last longer if they are well made and not a fad. It will be well worth the cost over time. That is not to say I spend $600 on a pair of shoes. I’m still looking for a sale too :)

    Hey, this is my most favorite fashion topic…. I really love shoes, from high heeled pumps to sandals to flats. I have a recent obsession with printed and colorful shoes. In the past I mostly bought black and brown but I’ve now become obsessed with different colors, turquois, purple, coral, red…. I love shoes!!!!!

  9. I love gorgeous shoes but often it’s hard for me to obtain the flyest shoes because I have such a large foot (11/12). I’m not willing to sacrifice the health of my foot for the style on it. So I try to get the cutest shoe possible and just draw more attention upwards. I would love if there was an affordable yet stylish line for women with larger sized feet, but alas, that is our lot.

  10. Love, love, love me some shoes. DSW is my fave place to find designers @ affordable prices with Marshalls & Tjmaxx a close second. I save money to indulge my obsession each season so I can get the fly, trendy shoes as well as the classics that I know will last a while. Can’t go wrong with a classic: I have a 9 year old pair of Jimmy Choo’s that people still ask me where I got them from.

  11. I must say for many years I did not discriminate when it came to shoes…I LOVED them all, and thought quantity was way more important than quality. Now that I’m older I appreciate the opposite and certainly look for classic styles and quality more so than quantity. Now my hunt focuses on sales at Neiman Marcus, Saks, and Bloomies. Nothing beats a great pair of shoes; well unless we’re talking handbags ;-)

    I’m a shoe lover but being a tall girl with size 10′s I often run into challenges finding my size, particularly in discount stores. I really like the color-blocking trend for shoes this spring. Can’t wait to shop!

  13. I love shoes. I have my heel moments, and then i have my flats only moments. I need to start investing in shoes but of course my taste & my wallet aren’t functioning on the same wave length. I’m 6’1″ (12)& love heels (when i’m in the mood, lol). i would like to get shoes from barefoottess.com, they go up to 15 i think.

    Nothing beats a sexy pair of shoes! I try to hunt for quality pieces at affordable prices but sometimes you have to spend a bit more if you find a classic piece that’s worth the investment.

  15. Another new surprise from Converse! This time the canvas shoe brand that has been known since the 1950s, together with the famous Italian designer – Missoni, in designing the latest collection, called Converse Missoni. Shoes Converse Missoni, recently launched this spring will be available in a choice of soft colors and more muted. However, it
