Good thing you reminded me of that, WyoNewk! Maybe you can enlighten me. I have absolutely no use for open-toed pumps of this type and they're all over!



Ask The Fashion Police: open toed shoes with hoseĀ* > The Fashion Police

They're extremely uncomfortable and hot to wear in summer barefoot and they look awful worn with a hose in the winter. What is one supposed to do with them anyway?! And now they came up with open-toed damn BOOTS! One can't find normal shoes anymore!

Lately there's a model on the market I call "the perfect date" - the entire heel and part of the back of the shoes is covered with some serious spikes! Those shoes are handy weapons, I tell ya! They look sorta like these - http://www.shoeperwoman.com/wp-conte...pike-shoes.jpg - but the spikes are only in the back and on the heel. I've seen them in Dillard's, but can't find them on their website.

I owned a shoe store for a few years. I once sold some nice open-toed dress shoes to a gal who brought them back the next day. She said her husband wouldn't let her keep them because they showed too much toe and were too sexy.
Did your store happen to be on the north side of Jacksonville?

4-5 inch might be a tad high. Would have to see them. But generally LOVE to see a woman in high heels. Wish my wife liked wearing them.

Speaking of f*me heels, I wore a pair of high heel over the knee boots to a birthday party last weekend. I had some guy come over and tell me I won the "best boots contest." I replied "I don't know if that's good or bad!?" and he then told me he wanted to get a pair for his wife. I still don't know if I should take it as an insult or a compliment. My husband thinks it was a compliment, but I think he's biased.

I think gals look rediculous in high platforms. I laugh when I see them walking, or trying to walk...they look like clown shoes and create an unnatural gait.

Heels, sans the bulky platforms, can look nice but when you get up to and over 4" it's obvious the girl is trying way too hard. Again, I laugh.

Don't even get me started on the health and safety issues.

4" inches isn't even that high.

I don't care what men think, I'll wear what I please.

It's no more foolish than thinking ho's don't wear flats! Newflash babe...it's the woman IN the shoes not THE shoes that makes the difference between a good woman and a ho. Sounds like you need to broaden your horizons just a wee bit.

Don't you care that I might like it just a little?
