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!

As I mentioned in the last OMG SHOEZ thread, I recently got a gift certificate to, and with the rest of it, I purchased these lovely red loafers:

I comfortably wear a medium width shoe, and these were a little tight across the top where the decorative band is when I first put them on. But after walking around in them for a bit, they loosened up just fine, and now they are one of my go-to shoes! I have worn them many times already in the few weeks I've had them.

I love a good red shoe to have as a pop of color when I'm wearing neutral colors, or (as I was when I took the above photo) just a solid black top with jeans.

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