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!

Trotters' Jenkins Slip-On in White Multi.

I'm really into flat loafers at the moment, and I managed to snag these on sale at for $41 (originally $100). I totally love them and recommend them, with the note that they are a little narrow. I usually wear a medium width, and these are a bit snugger than I prefer. If your foot tends to be on the cusp of medium and wide width, I'd recommend going for the wide.

I did some walking around in them yesterday, and I was very happy every time I got a glimpse of my rainbow feets!

So, that's what up with me! What's up with you?
