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!

I mentioned in the last OMG SHOEZ thread that I'm really into flat loafers at the moment, but that doesn't mean I've abandoned heels completely! I still love me a pair of heeled boots, including these beauties:

Dr. Scholl's Darcia Velvet Bootie.

These have a 3-inch heel, which I almost never do — but because they're Dr. Scholl's, I can walk and stand comfortably in them for a reasonable amount of time. Like the duration of date night, for instance!

I don't do heels very often, but I like to have a few pairs just so I can occasionally experience what it's like to be "tall." I'm all of 5'5" in a 3-inch heel, lol.

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