These Shoes Are $300 Effing Dollars. Let's Get 'Em!
Sadly, I *do* actually own a pair of $300 New Rock boots. And yes, they are pretty awesome. Bought on a whim for my SteamPunk costume last year. A foolish purchase, perhaps - given that I had to guess the size and they were non-returnable...but it paid off nicely because they fit like a dream and they are strangely comfortable.
Sometimes, I get lucky.
For the most part, though, I tend to confine my shoe whoredom to either sandals (my toes like to breathe, yo) or those of the large and chunky/funky variety. For the most part, I detest wearing pumps of any sort...but I also dislike flats and for some reason I cannot manage flip-flops or sandals where there's something between my toes.
That being said here's a few samples of what I've bought over the last few years:
I adore these, but the back hurts for quite a while after I wear them, so they only come out for special occasions -->
Anyway, just a minor sample there. I would probably have more pairs than I do, but these days I try to limit some of the more crazy stuff if I can't wear it on a regular basis. Sometimes. And sometimes? I'm just gonna get what I want.
This is the most classic shoe whore video ever, btw. (Special thanks to Darchala for reminding me. Sorta NSFW)
