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 awhile ago, but they felt appropriately Halloweenie, since they have a bit of witchiness about them:

I got these on deep sale (64% off!) at for only $18 — and there are still some left. I'm not sure what sizes remain available, though. That's the the thing about these discount sites: Sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes you don't.

The Fanilla is quite comfy for a heel, which is what I like about LifeStride. They do a decent job of making walkable heels.

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