These Shoes Weren't Made For Walkin'...

Do any of my fellow illness-having individuals still wear high heels?  I think they are so so pretty, but do find it hard to walk in anything but a wedge heel (the pain starts breaking me down)!  I figure there is no harm in still eyeballing a few now and then!  How does everyone feel about socks with shoes?

Really out there, but really fun!

This is totally my favorite look!

Cutesy, and I might be able to walk in something similar :).

I'm not sure how I feel about this trend...

Skull stilettos thrown in for my beloved Sarah, who will covet these immediately!

Much to my dismay, my brain isn't working at full capacity today!  Instead, I ogled shoes!  What do you gap out to on the Internet (This is one of my many!)??

xoxo,
Annie

I've always been a klutz so I have never been a high heels wearer. I'm just over five feet, so why make your feet hurt just to be a little taller....I'm still shorter than everyone else.

I like looking at high heels but due to high arches I can only *sit* in them ;)
You should add the Scrabble app to your igoogle.com homepage and we can waste hours playing Scrabbles games with one another :D

I did go through a high heel phase about 20 years ago but stopped wearing them. I forget why. I've been a flats person for years. The building I worked in before I got sick was huge so I spent a lot of time walking between labs. I should have worn roller skates. Heels were out of the question and I never saw any of the other women there wearing them either.

I was looking at shoes this week though and I saw some point shoes with heels and wondered how anyone not trained in ballet ever manage to walk in those. I don't think they even have a proper toe box so the toes don't get injured. (about 40 years ago I learned to dance on point and haven't done it since) Very cute shoes but oh so impractical.

My time waster this week has been craftzine.com I've been looking at the craft projects and knitting patterns. A lot of them appeal to my geeky heart. If they had math knitting when I was a kid I might have stuck with it :-)

I've never been a heels person- knee problems limit me to platforms at most. I'm pretty baffled by a lot of shoes right now (although I'll admit, I love the legwarmer look, too!).

I have been pretty fried. I have some fun sites I checked daily or every other day and webcomics I read regularly, but I haven't been into flash games as much. I've been trying to cut down on distractions a bit to get things done and read to rest- I'll let you know if it works, lol!

I miss my high heels. I can't do any heel. Even on 1 inch is a too much for me. My balance problems just tip me over the edge!

The shoes you ogled though were gorgeous! What a pretty way to start the day!

I miss mine too........I love pretty heels. I still gaze at them in my closet.........

I only wear heels if I know I'll be sitting down the whole time wherever I'm going, and there will be parking very close. And even then sometimes it's a mistake.

Maybe because I'm a child of the 80s, I really love the heels/socks look. Or when Scarlet Johnanssen wore white socks with Mary Janes in The Nanny Diaries. Haven't been brave enough to try it myself yet though.

I adore such fabulous looking shoes and would love to be able to wear them, but my feet do not feel the same way. I even have a problem wearing my converse, which sucks since I finally found a pink sparkly pair in an adult size.

I have been limited to athletic shoes, cushy sandals, and bulky ugg-like boots. Plus my feet tend to get really, really cold now which the boots help with, but I sometimes end up wearing two pairs of socks.

There is also the balance thing, but if the shoes did not hurt so bad, I would risk falling down here and there.

I can only manage them for a short amount of time. Wore them for a job interview (and then had to go to my temp job afterwards). Yeah...Picked up a pair of the Dr. Scholl's fast flats after the interview and wore those the rest of the day.

I wish I could wear them more! Decorating my feet would be so lovely!
