Sooo remember how I bought some new shoes that I was super excited about? And then I never got around to wearing them because it’s awful and rainy outside and I couldn’t bear to let a drop of water touch them. Umm so anyways, here they are!
They’re knockoffs of those Balenciaga lace-up peep-toe crazyboots from FW07. I think a lot of people probably think these are hideous or just plain silly (my mom said they looked like “construction boots with a heel”), but I personally love them and will stubbornly refuse to listen to what anybody else says.
I mean, seriously, look at these things.
They lace up. They zip up. They buckle (3 times). They have a peep toe, cut-out heel, gold hardware, and rubber treaded soles. They’re made of beautiful soft leather (pretty rare for a Steve Madden knockoff) and, if you haven’t picked up on it by now, they’re pretty much awesome.
Oh and by the way, here’s a shout out (not really, but I’ve always wanted to say that) to the awesome people who work at DSW. Thank you for letting me use an expired coupon, and letting me get “$10 off a purchase of $50 or more” on a pair of $45 shoes. This happened when I bought my first pair of high heels there, too. Maybe DSW just tells its employees that the customer is always right, or maybe its cashiers are just the most awesome people on earth.
One more thing, though – I’m still trying to figure out how to wear these shoes. Is it better to wear them with something simple and plain, or a ridiculously crazy outfit? I’m sort of in the middle here (little black dress + tailcoat), but I’d like to hear other people’s opinions. Pretty please? ;)
