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!

These Madden Girl ankle boots were a belated Christmas from Deeky and I love them so much!

I couldn't get a good photo of them that showed off the cute strappy detail while I was wearing them, so I used an image from 6pm, where they are currently 70% off (!), though in limited sizes.

They're super cute and super comfy, and they look equally as good whether paired with a cropped skinny jean or with a full-length bootcut or straight-leg jean.

They're also faux leather, like a lot (if not all) of the Madden Girl line, so a good choice if you're looking for leather alternatives.

When I opened them, I exclaimed, "Omigosh I love these boots! How did you know?!" To which Deeks replied, "Because when I asked what you wanted for Christmas, you told me these boots." LOLOLOL! The Lint Trap isn't 100% reliable, folks.

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