The Girlfriend Shoes

I call them the girlfriend shoes. You know, the ones you can wear only with a sympathetic girlfriend, for no man would wait for you to walk daintily in them. I scored this pair in blue at Macy’s, though I can assure you they’re long gone from the store now.

 

My God, they’re stunning on your foot. As for comfort, one complaint – there’s a seam on the inside right over my little toe, just on one shoe, that kills me. I wear bandages on my toes to make it even remotely possible to walk in them. If it weren’t for that badly-placed seam, we’d be good to go. They do have a 4-inch heel, but it’s quite possible if you’re not running marathons. I did wear them to the city once and I was fine until that seam started to cripple me. Why? Why can’t we have gorgeous shoes and the understanding of the manufacturers on where those seams are going?
