Shoesday Tuesday - some things I've learned through my shoe fiendery - quality vs quantity/comfort vs pain.





If they're not right - send them right back.
I purchased 2 pairs of platform heels online and they were WAAAY too high!
These red beaded heels were beyond lovely - but once again the platform made me a giant
and the under sole was so slippery you WOULD fall over - even on carpet!


These wedges however, from Roc boots Australia were an online purchase I really agonized over that really paid off. They have the platform for comfort but they're not ridiculously high.


♥ 
These Kathryn Wilson's - I purchased in store. I'm a total sucker for zebra!
They're SUPER comfortable and I get so many compliments on them.
We even spotted them in the Auckland Museum (right pic)


I like wedges with a bit of a platform - They're comfortable and the arch isnt too high, so you can wear them all day without getting sore balls... of your feet that is.
These above are from Kinki Gerlinki
I saw them in the shop and walked away, only to return later that day to snap them up!
I walked around Melbourne all day and not even one issue - super comfortable - and rose gold 😊


My parrot is also from Kinki Gerlinki - Nailed this pose


Cheap ballet flats will hurt you and fall apart - Very quickly! They may look cute - but the more you can invest in higher quality the more you feet will thank you.
My pop-art ballet flats in the first image don't carry any branding - I bought them from an online sale store, but they're amazingly comfy, I've had to glue them back together!

 I'm not a stiletto person, I just don't feel stable in them. I probably have 3 pairs now. Stilettos are super sexy and so nice on some, but they're just not me.

♥ But the ultimate thing I've learned as a seasoned shoe fiend...  your most 'boring' shoes will most likely end up your most worn. Fun shoes are all good... but you still need the comfy basics.


Aahhh, so much shoe heaven in one collage.

What do you guys think?
Do you suffer in your Louboutins or revel in your Birkenstock's?

Happy Shoesday Everyone!

If the Internet was my closet - so-bad-they're-good-shoes - Dolce&Gabbana, Miu Miu, Simone Rocha

SANAYI 313
I was perusing the Matches fashion sale (as you do) and I couldn't help but notice the trend for super ugly but strangely compelling footwear...
Mongolian sherling covered vamp anyone?
BROTHER VELLIES
Look at these glittery - Miu Miu - BEAUTIES
Well these look comfortable at least...
SIMONE ROCHA
These I actually want pretty bad.... DOLCE & GABBANA

And my own contribution to the so-ugly-they're-awesome shoe trend
My ASOS silver pointy heels with pastel pink pom poms :-)

This post wasn't sponsored by matches, I just happened to be scrolling through their sale and had to share with you! I think I'll save my money.

What about you guys? Anything grab your fancy?
