not comfortable talking about nudity?

Talk me into these shoes -


Picture 5

at under a hundred dollars, they could be perfect for:

blogher, to dress up my terribly casual wardrobe. They are dressy! Yet casual!

that weekend wedding thing we are obligated to go to - film people, trendy, lots of black, to be worn with Dana Buchman trousers and a top from Anthro.

Italy - cute with a skirt, hopefully comfortable as they are platforms, certainly more comfortable than my pointy spike heels which cannot be worn to the wedding (outdoors, in the grass) or Italy (much walking).

GO AHEAD. TALK ME INTO THEM.

i don't think you should buy those shoes. go get those skating shoes you've always wanted. shoes AND skates, what's not to love? *snort*






[they're awesome shoes. i'd say they are a "need" not a "want"]

If you want them then you don't need anyone to talk you into it. Get them for you, just because.

And I will add this - I like 'em! I've never been a huge fan of platform shoes (possibly because of my height), but these, oh yes, these I like :)

Only if you tell me whose they are...they're *exactly* what I need for a wedding I have coming up soon.

I am going to talk you out of them. Because you can get some almost exactly like that at Target for WAY less than $100. And then maybe you can afford to put pictures of naked people on your walls or some shit like that.

I'm comfortable discussing nudity. Sometimes, after we watch the Sopranos, I practice dancing naked. Just to crack myself up. Because, honestly? It's HORRIFYING.

If you have to be talked into them, it's not worth the $$. Though they are very trendy and not too obnoxious in the platform department being black. The Princess has numerous pairs you could borrow, if you wear a 5.

Nice Toe Cleavage! Go for it, knock yourself out. And I loved your previous post. I had seen some press on it and was enthralled. Had not seen most of the photos you posted and when I did became more enthralled. Buy the shoes!

Sounds like you'll get your money's worth out of them. I had to practice when I got platform wedges. I was clumsy as hell in them! Kept catching the toe on steps and falling off them sideways.

I say get the Badger version. I can't imagine schlepping all over Italy in any shoe that's not a sneaker (in fact or in disguise).

where are they from?? ADORABLE! buy them! i want to!

...schlepping...you'll have to explain this to me.

Very nice platforms.
I wear them a lot and are comfortable around here as opposed to high heels. I see quite a few female tourists all dressed up in their 4/5" heels promptly removing them when confronting one of our lovely staircases...or the pathway to the beach! Ahi! You'll see...

I have one pair of heels, so I'm not the one to ask. But if you'll wear them and they're comfortable, I think you'll get your money's worth. You probably already have bought them by now...
