Listen, the news is tough, and we all need moments of escape from the horror to recuperate and prepare for the next onslaught, and I can talk about shoes all the livelong day, so welcome to the OMG SHOEZ thread.

Got a favorite pair of shoes you want to share? Bought a new pair about which you're super excited? Have a recommendation to make, or want to caution us away from a purchase you regret? Want to solicit suggestions for a specific event, a foot issue, an elusive something for which you've been hunting? Having trouble finding something particular on a budget? Have at it in comments!

It is no secret that I love shoes. It is also no secret that I am cheap AF. The combination of these two qualities meant that I spent many, many years drooling over Fluevog shoes and never buying any, even on the rare occasions when I had the money to splurge on expensive shoes.

But then their Bardot pump in blue and gold dropped into the double-digits because they were almost sold out — and they still had some in my size. Which never happens!

So I snapped them up, and now, my friends, I own my very first pair of Fluevogs, and it is everything I hoped it would be! HEART EYES.

Not only are these shoes absolutely beautiful, even dreamier in person than in photos, but they are extraordinarily comfortable. I could stand in and/or walk in these all day.

Last night, Iain and I stopped for a quick bite while we were out, and I happened to be wearing these shoes — which proceeded to cause pandemonium among the waitstaff! The manager actually came to the table to check them out, because he had to see for himself the shoes over which everyone in the kitchen was losing their minds, haha.

I spelled Fluevog at least six times for people who wanted to write it down. If Fluevog is looking for a new part-time influencer to model their shoes in public, CALL ME.
