Have you ever seen those girls wearing high heels who look like baby giraffes trying to walk for the first time? Yeah, that was me in these shoes. Somehow in the years that I've owned these shoes, they have gotten too big. Who knows, maybe they've always been too big. I really don't wear them that often. In fact, I keep meaning to get rid of them, but then I wouldn't have a pair of simple black pumps. I guess that's going on my want list.
So there I was, walking the two blocks from the parking garage to work, and every time I took a step, the back of the shoe slipped off my heel. It made for a very slow, embarrassing walk. About halfway there, I heard someone walking slowly behind me, and in my head, I willed them to just pass me and put me out of my misery. Turns out, it was one of my husband's good friends who works with me. I'm not sure if that's more or less embarrassing, but I immediately told him my shoes are too big, and I'm walking like a fool. Not surprisingly, he replied, "I can tell." Yeah, I bet. Time to retire these shoes.
If you have any suggestions of relatively comfortable black pumps for wide-ish size 10–11 feet, 3 inches or lower heel for less than $100 (usually, I'd cap it at like 40, but I figure spending more can only benefit me in this case — I = cheap), I'd love to hear them!
