seriously guys.

i just got some chie miharas on ebay
hot or not?

bell_labs, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:21 (fifteen years ago) link

cute! i love the heel.

i have put myself on a no new shoes plan because i am broke and irresponsible, so i will have to live vicariously through all of you.

horseshoe, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:29 (fifteen years ago) link

Holy shit, bell, OMG you got those?? I cannot wait to see that.

Laurel, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:40 (fifteen years ago) link

i love those! i almost bought them, but the ankle tie was a terrible look for my short-ish legs.

lauren, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:41 (fifteen years ago) link

i'm actually really mad about that, thinking about it again.

lauren, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:41 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah i'm really excited...i'm not really a heel person, but the other chie mihara shoes i've tried on have all been really comfy. i didn't think i'd win them because i didn't even meet the reserve but the buyer sold them to me anyways yusssssss.

bell_labs, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:50 (fifteen years ago) link

between this and the apc sale on saturday my economic stimulus money is trickling away...

bell_labs, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:52 (fifteen years ago) link

<3 those shoes!

tehresa, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:52 (fifteen years ago) link

Lauren, I would have the exact same problem. Thick ankle straps not an option for me...but I look forward to seeing them on labs.

Laurel, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:56 (fifteen years ago) link

yes those are freakin great shoes

i think i was resisting starting this thread b/c i could prob spend all day posting pics of shoes i want

rrrobyn, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:58 (fifteen years ago) link

those shoes def hawt blabs

jhøshea, Monday, 23 June 2008 17:59 (fifteen years ago) link

someone should buy these shoes. they will make you look like an italian movie!:


horseshoe, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:22 (fifteen years ago) link

oh wow. swoon.

tehresa, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:41 (fifteen years ago) link

Did someone call me?

Laurel, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:42 (fifteen years ago) link

i know! they are 50% off at net-a-porter.com...which makes them $200.

xpost Laurel, buy them!!!

horseshoe, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:44 (fifteen years ago) link

i love the white but would ruin them in 1 wearing.
if they were black and red omg i'd be tempted.

tehresa, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:45 (fifteen years ago) link

Too rich for my blood, ladies. As much as I love them (and have an all-red pair around the same shape & height).

Laurel, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:48 (fifteen years ago) link

where are the rich lady lurkers of ilx? i will find all this shoes for you!

horseshoe, Monday, 23 June 2008 18:48 (fifteen years ago) link

oh, a shoe i mourn: stuart weitzman's "delovely" which used to be in pretty patent pink but now i can only find in more sensible colors:


horseshoe, Monday, 23 June 2008 19:44 (fifteen years ago) link

That last but one pair of shoes remind me of these guys:


In a good way.

ohh bell your miharas are GREAT

i was just looking through this paris vogue w/charlotte gainsbourg, she has boots like those. super cool

daria-g, Thursday, 26 June 2008 06:36 (fifteen years ago) link

yes, want

rrrobyn, Thursday, 26 June 2008 15:05 (fifteen years ago) link

can i admit that i have loved every shoe in the Jessica Simpson line that i've ever encountered in a store?

horseshoe, Thursday, 10 July 2008 00:37 (fifteen years ago) link

i know i said NO MORE CHEAP SHOES, but i couldn't resist getting a pair of these in bright royal blue:


lauren, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:01 (fifteen years ago) link

Is it so wrong to really really really want these?

Laurel, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:13 (fifteen years ago) link

where are those from lauren? i love cheap shoes.

i still haven't worn my new heels! they look awesome though.

bell_labs, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:17 (fifteen years ago) link

Or these?

You see how my shoe cabinet is filled with variations on the twin themes of red/white/black/silver and patent.

Laurel, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:18 (fifteen years ago) link

Wait, I take that back, these aren't patent.

Also when did Nine West become awesome?

Laurel, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:21 (fifteen years ago) link

bell, they're from amazon but the brand is soda. i just ordered 2 more pairs (charcoal and black) - eek.

lauren, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:30 (fifteen years ago) link

Laurel, those Via Spigas are beautiful.

horseshoe, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:51 (fifteen years ago) link

(I will get murdered if I link "Shoes" here, right?)

HI DERE, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:53 (fifteen years ago) link

Sometimes Via Spiga is like WHOAH CRAZY EURO-SOMETHING and sometimes they amaze me.

Laurel, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:53 (fifteen years ago) link

(i love you but i will have no choice but to immediately ban you)

rrrobyn, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:13 (fifteen years ago) link

(;_;, okay)

HI DERE, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:21 (fifteen years ago) link

i cannot buy cheap shoes :/ i don't even know if it's a psychological or physiological, it just never happens even if i give it a chance

but srsly

rrrobyn, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:22 (fifteen years ago) link

I love you but you have chosen "Shoes".

Laurel, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:26 (fifteen years ago) link

haha, i think my main problem with shoes video is that it is not a kids in the hall sketch, not even a failed kids in the hall sketch, whatever it was sort of funny the first time i guess. no not really.

rrrobyn, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:36 (fifteen years ago) link

wait is this the kith sketch where bruce goes "i sell shoes!" and then kevin as satan goes "and so you always shall!"

if so then yeah, kind of funny a little bit but nothing spectacular.

bell_labs, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:42 (fifteen years ago) link

I have become an adult! I went to the summer sales and picked up these bad boys. Then I panicked and spent over a hundred euro on Diesel trainers because I am a child trapped in a man's basement body

hyggeligt, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:43 (fifteen years ago) link

haha no, the 'shoes video' is this 'youtube phenomenon' that this la guy did ages ago where he plays a girl with a blond wig who loves shoes yaay and there is sort of a song. and shoes.

my favourite kith sketch related to shoes is the one where scott walks into a shoe store dressed in a trenchcoat and dave is the shoe salesman who has learned several english phrases phonetically but doesn't actually understand english. scott says 'just got feet don't got shoes' and beats dave up. it is pretty genius.

rrrobyn, Friday, 11 July 2008 16:49 (fifteen years ago) link

hahahahahaha i remember that one.

i think the sacco pair are 20% off in the store at the moment.

lauren, Friday, 25 July 2008 19:13 (fifteen years ago) link

i sort of like these, too http://saccoshoes.com/istar.asp?a=6&id=A105!LUIZA

tehresa, Friday, 25 July 2008 19:16 (fifteen years ago) link

are they made of wonder material? bc they don't necessarily look that supportive/comfy!

tehresa, Friday, 25 July 2008 19:17 (fifteen years ago) link

i did not find anything i really liked that was avail in the proper size at sacco :(

also tried on some clarks i liked at macy's but they did not have the proper size. argh!

in the mean time, these heels are insane!

Darn bodies.

If authoritarianism is Romania's ironing board, then (in orbit), Friday, 19 February 2016 16:39 (eight years ago) link

I've picked up my shoe game this year, no lady office pumps that are only good if you don't have to walk anywhere, I go for purely mobile style now.


If authoritarianism is Romania's ironing board, then (in orbit), Friday, 19 February 2016 16:51 (eight years ago) link

And these, slightly less mobile but I couldn't resist.


If authoritarianism is Romania's ironing board, then (in orbit), Friday, 19 February 2016 16:53 (eight years ago) link

And something very similar to these, which I've been kicking the shit out of since last fall (not Frye's, though--my pockets aren't that deep).


Basically what I'm saying is my wardrobe is full of peasant skirts and black leggings now, no pretensions to any kind of adult style except comfort. My shoes are all I have left.

If authoritarianism is Romania's ironing board, then (in orbit), Friday, 19 February 2016 17:00 (eight years ago) link

orbit those first ones are DOPE AS FUCK OMG

They're like wearing little clouds on my feets too!

If authoritarianism is Romania's ironing board, then (in orbit), Friday, 19 February 2016 17:53 (eight years ago) link

I got these recently which are actually pretty similar now that I think abt it!


They are!

Shoe fraternal twins!

Loving your mobile style, L!

I have no rad new shoes to share, though I did buy a cute pair of tiny-polkadot canvas keds for $20 to wear indoors at friends' houses or whatever in winter. might wear outdoors in summer though my walking ways just destroy this kind of shoe/slipper...

i bought some of these


they are v comfortable

Flamenco Drop (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 19 February 2016 19:22 (eight years ago) link

i like those first sneaks, laurel, and the boots are fly too!

i'm on the lookout for the perfect pair of boots - preferably biker style - and these are the current contenders:

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/ce/e6/1e/cee61ec35a47334c760131d0767b2284.jpg (these aren't really suitable for the purpose i'm looking for, but i LOVE them)


https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/20/a5/0e/20a50eadcd598d948f152326c38eb95c.jpg (these might be a little too dressy)

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/76561262393719001/ (maybe a little toooo chunky)

just1n3, Friday, 19 February 2016 20:22 (eight years ago) link

my new comfort look is mid thigh tunics, preferably loose and flowy, underneath a knee length cardigan, with bare legs or tights and badass boots.

just1n3, Friday, 19 February 2016 20:24 (eight years ago) link

I tried various iterations (several NOT CHEAP) of not-comfortable-looking-but-comfortable women's shoes and have fucking given up.

I bought (NOT CHEAP but yet CHEAP) two pairs of men's wingtips--the high-end kind--and am not looking back.

I get tons of compliments, my feet are happy, and these shoes are gonna last 10x longer then these crappy velcro shit stuff I wasted time on.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Saturday, 20 February 2016 05:28 (eight years ago) link

justine i like the "dressy" boots - a tiny bit steampunk but in a good way?? - and the last ones, which are pretty unfuckable with

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 20 February 2016 19:06 (eight years ago) link

yeah i really like them too, but i already have two pairs of really cool witchy/steampunk (also in good way) boots. i also have a pair of very simply black mid calf boots, but the have a very thin sole, so i feel like what's missing is pair of slightly chunky, more badass boots??

just1n3, Sunday, 21 February 2016 05:01 (eight years ago) link

resole with maximum chunk!

the late great, Thursday, 10 August 2017 04:29 (six years ago) link

if I was into shoes that weren't Converse I'd go Adidas

Trying to find the right kind of nice leather shoes is a fool's errand, if you like Docs, stick to the plan, just get some different looking Docs

Does ilx like nike huraches?

For a long time my signature shoes were clarks desert boots, then two different kinds of red wings, but now I'm wearing these. Part of me thinks they're incongruous with the rest of my look but idk. I'm in love with them.

Treeship, Tuesday, 15 August 2017 21:54 (six years ago) link

im p sure we have some huarache wearers on here.

i hadn't worn a big brand pair of sneakers in absolutely years but i got a pair of adidas nmd r2s and i feel like I'm walking on damn air

-_- (jim in vancouver), Tuesday, 15 August 2017 22:00 (six years ago) link

Yeah similar experience with the huraches. They are so comfortable. Idk why i spend all fall and winter in heavy red wing boots. I don't think I pull off ruggedness anyway.

Treeship, Tuesday, 15 August 2017 22:02 (six years ago) link

three months pass...

confession: i have a big callous on the bottom of both of my feet, right on the ball of my feet. i can hold a flame to it for 5 seconds and i can't feel a fucking thing. haven't tried that yet but i believe it to be true. recently, i realized i have the callouses because i have holes in both soles of my pair of IRL shoes. i tend to use things until they break, and this really got reinforced during coronavirus.

i'm a fuckin mess

here's my question: does anyone have any recommendations for walking around shoes that don't feature large advertisements for the shoe company on them? for example, imagine the perfect shoe, whatever that means, but "SHOE CO." is printed on the back. disqualified. also disqualified: anything that looks like a modern athletic shoe. no. nothing like that. i just want a comfortable shoe that isn't an advertisement and doesn't look like an 8-year-old inherited the design division of a shoe company.
