Utterly Insensible Shoes

I've been told by one of many of my friends/ family that my sky high pumps are not sensible.  The Boy has also questioned my desire to wear 4" + heels as at 5'9" they make me above 6'.  Well if insensible shoes look like these spring trends... I say bring em on!  I'll wear inserts and comfort shoes when I'm old and have ankle arthritis from my insensible shoes.

Although I wear insensible shoes, that doesn't mean I am insensible about what I pay for them.  I am also tough on my heels, so for now I'll be buying mostly from the reality category and maybe a few splurges in the want.

  1. This is a totally awesome post! I must say I have questioned *myself* many a time about my heels...but I still have way too many and wear them every chance I get! I'm actually seriously contemplating those Target wedges...(c:

  2. There is absolutely nothing insensible about any of these shoes!! :) Love this post. Your "reality" picks are just as good as the "wishes"!

  3. Fabulous post, sweetie! There's nothing insensible about them and I'm longing for them all! :)

  4. those leopard Giuseppe's are kind of making me drool right now!!! xx

  5. I'd rock a little leopard! I'm a terrible heel-wearer though. They are supposed to make you feel sexy and instead I just feel awkward.

    Love that you wear high high heels at 5'9... I have a friend just like you!

  6. There is no excuse not to wear heels! Heels are sexy.

  7. Thanks for the positive feed back and I couldn't agree with all of you more, I'm gonna keep rockin them until I physically can't anymore! Some of these babies may be coming home with me soon too!

  8. Love this! I do the same thing! Wish... want... maybe?? ahhhhh, reality... So true!!! Awesome post :)

  9. Such a great post!! I love seeing all the different price points. On most of them, I actually like the reality ones the best!! You should probably buy a few pairs in the name of blogging research :)

  10. Oh Alena, this is a GREAT idea and may become a frequent excuse!
