Ladies...Please. Listen Up.

So. There I am. Walking around the mall looking for a present for my mom. When I look around and notice all the women around me are not so much walking, as they are teetering around on super high heeled shoes. Of course, that's everyone, but me. Gaze upon my beautiful new shoes...

Yes I love them soooooo much. They are super comfy and also very stylish, no matter what anyone says. Pink spikes are IN this season!

Anyway, so these women that I'm seeing having to take 8-inch steps, looked very uncomfy and I am definitely Pro-Comfy. Now don't get me wrong. I love the pretty sandals and the heels and what not, but if I can't walk in 4-inch heels, I DO NOT BUY 4 INCH HEELS! Because if you can't walk in your shoes, you do not look super sexy! You look like an idiot. And also like you're going to fall over should a slight breeze be stirred up.

To the girl in the 4-inch chunky platforms: No one thought you were just meandering around the mall. We could all see that with the 'power combo' of shoes too tall for you and the jeans that you needed Crisco, Saran wrap and two good friends to get on, that you could not bend your knees and had to shuffle along like you were practicing skiing. Not cool. Not sexy. Just funny.

I should really start taking my camera more places with me. Although I doubt skank girl would have been too pleased with me taking her picture and snickering. But hey, it's not like she could catch me or anything! I could have gotten away from her at "window shopping" speed. Hee!

So, girls, and you know who you are, please wear shoes you can somewhat walk in. I'm not saying you've got to be able to run a marathon in them, but if you're going to stroll around the mall, then wear the appropriate shoes.

*stepping down off soapbox*

I always wear shoes I can walk in these days. Back in the old days, when I was still super skinny and had to really dress up for work, all of my shoes were super tall, and super cute (I could walk in them!) Not comfy at all though! Geez, what getting old does to you ;-) I wouldn't want to wear those shoes now if you paid me!
You should seriously be taking pictures with your camera phone! Me too for that matter!

I know! I really should start taking my camera more places, or at least learn how to be sneaky with my camera phone! ;)

Before I moved to New York, I sold all my shoes that were not flats (flat dress shoes, tennis shoes, flip flops). It was the best decision I've ever made.
