It's been hard for me the last few months, not being able to enjoy my favourite pastime of trying on shoes. Now I know I'm definitely on the mend:









I think these will go a long way to seeing me through the winter without taxing my ankle too much, and then when spring comes around, I should feel more confident that a return to heels won't be far off.

I'm not all about the impractical, am I?

Only because you can't wear them at the moment!

Not true! I've seen the error of my ways!

(okay, partly true then)

They have EVERYTHING I love in a boot all in one place: laces, zips and buckles!

Well, that's weird...LJ won't let me post a comment to your journal. Bad LJ! Not that I had anything of importance to say, but still, I wanted to post the following:

A good thing with this massive walk is that it'll work off my aggression and I'll start making headway through my HP audio books and all the BF ones I've not got around to listening to yet.

And, you'll get fit(ter), climbing all them there hills! Surely, that's got to be a plus, too. ;-)

You know, someday when you have oodles of time, would you PLEASE take a picture of all of your shoes. I love shoes!

Actually, I have oodles of time at the moment (my GP advised I not return to work before October)...but if you click on the 'footwear'-tag, you should see quite a nice cross-section on your screen already. ;-)

Ah, I see a link is broken...there maybe something in that idea of yours, after all; though I'm afraid a post like that will be terribly image-heavy...

I liked what I saw!
I think the swirly boots were my favorite.

The swirly boots! I haven't been able to wear those for over 2 years now; but I haven't given up hope that I may be able to some day soon yet.

So if you don't mind me asking, what's your shoe size? I know you're tall, and tall women tend to have bigger feet so they don't fall over...

I have HUGE feet and it's a task and a half to find cute shoes here for me, which is why I ask.

I'm actually a fairly average shoe size (for a North European); depending on the make and model, I take a European size 39, 39 1/2 or 40. This translates to a UK size of between 6 and 6 1/2, or an American size 9.

And at 5'6" 1/2, I'm not that tall, am I?

Wow. 5'6? I always remembered you as taller!
Huh.

Five-six-and a half! Don't forget about the half! ;-)

People always remember me as taller than I actually am. I have my mum to thank for that; she always made us sit and stand up straight, there was no slouching allowed in our house.

Oooh - I like those. I've just bought these which are comfortable and very practical for under trousers for the winter - but I like yours better. Pity I have such fat legs...

Ah, but there's method to my madness: the fact that these have zips, laces and buckles means I can let them out where I need to for them to fit over my fat calves!

And with the advancing of the years, I've come to the conclusion that you can't knock comfort and practicality in footwear. I'm sure you'll get lots of enjoyment out of your booties this winter.

I'm a bit of a slut for boots, especially boots like these, with the laces and buckles and awesome. *craves*

It's no secret that I'm a bit of a slut for shoes of any type; but when it comes to boots, I'm a total freakazoid. I will look at boots before I will look at anything else, and to have two or three pairs like normal people is nowhere near enough for me.
