New Shoes

Last week I finally managed to get shoes sorted out for the wedding. After having bought a fabulous Miu Miu pair which were amazing, but far too high, and were returned, I was at a loss of where to look next. So I left it and decided that I could sort it out closer to the time. And how time flew.

So last week I went for a hunt for comfortable black flat shoes that I could wear with my dress and weren't too expensive, not much to ask for then! And I found them....

Here are almost my shoes, mine have red heels instead of the brown heels below.

Shoes are from Kat Maconie

I found them in Poste Mistress and they are also sold in Harvey Nichols and Peter Jones (for you Londoners interested). They have been specially designed to be more comfortable, you can see the padding on the bottom of the shoe above and when I put them on I was really pleased. They fit my big feet, were smart without being over the top and were flat!

So I wore them all Saturday, danced the night away, loved them. And then today I walk into work in them (about a 35 minute walk I do every day) and now my feet hurt and have been rubbed. What to do?! All the same though, I would recommend looking at Kat Maconie's collection, the shoes are lovely and if you're looking for slightly different pumps they are comfy with lovely padded soles. One day though I will find shoes which don't rub...

there is no such thing as new shoes that don't rub. The y only stop rubbing once you have worn them in :(

K - Tis true, never have I owned a non-rubbing pair of shoes. One day...

BB - Glad you like them :)

R - Yes, tis true, maybe it's something to do with the way the feet move? Maybe we should experiment more with this, buy new shoes and go dancing!

Oh god! Story of my life - rubbing shoes! They look gorgeous though. I would try wearing them around the house with thick socks, that's what I try to do. I've just had the same thing, I wore some shoes from Great Portland street to Piccadilly and back and they were really comfy, then I wear them for a 20 min walk yesterday and I now have blimin' blisters! Have a good weekend! (Love your blog, found it from your comment on LLondongirls baby blog post)

It's the double-wear syndrome! I have to allow a week between wears (to allow my feet to recover). They'll get you through a day, but the moment you take them off, they become your enemies.

I switch off with other cute shoes that rub in different spots! I think that heat/humidity has an effect on rubbing too - my whole body swells when it's hotter - my ring and my watch are too tight during this heat wave.

I'm sure they'll be comfy for you again soon. Good luck!
