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 got these on clearance from I can't even remember where a few months ago. They were $17, originally more than a hundred. A great find!

Still, I can't recommend them, because they're super comfy to walk in, but the loop around the ankle is decidedly less than super comfy. It's not even tight, and it still rubs the back of my ankle in a weird way that creates enough chafing that I had a scab after wearing them for an evening with a lot of walking.

They are very sexy, and I get lots of compliments when I wear them, but I'm bummed about that awkward fit. I guess that explains the discount, lol. Ah well. I'll still wear them enough to make them worth the $17 I spent!

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