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!

In keeping with my loafers kick to offer mercy to my aging knees, I purchased these lovelies awhile ago:

These are actually men's loafers — the lavender Swank by Stacy Adams. (Even the name is terrific!) This is my first pair of Stacy Adams loafers, but I really like the brand, because they usually come in men's sizes small enough to fit me. And these loafers are quite comfortable and look even better in person, so I'll probably go back.

In the meantime, I'll content myself with drooling over these beauts — the lavender Dandy. Siiiiiiiigh.

It's nice to have a brand of men's shoes that work for me, which broadens my options in loafers and oxfords. I prefer women's shoes with a menswear look, but that's a more limited selection even across thousands of brands than I'd like. Also: Just a great selection of less traditionally masculine shoes for men who want some fem-leaning options. So yay Stacy Adams!

(I nearly or actually typed "Stacey Abrams" literally every time I typed "Stacy Adams" in this post, lol. It all comes back to politics eventually!)

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

(As always: I am not affiliated with nor am I receiving compensation from any of the brands or shoe retailers mentioned in this thread. Any shoes and/or retailers I recommend is just because I really like 'em!)
