Shoe Shine #26

Shoe Shine is on!
Get your kicks by showing your kicks!
These are one of my oldest pairs of shoes. I think I've had them for at least 5 years. I bought them new on clearance at the Bay for about $49.00, and to this day, I kick myself for not buying the same shoes in a cream and brown snakeskin. They're by Guess.
They are the classic black pump, with the perfect toe, the perfect shape, the perfect heel. Well, that's my opinion! Add the red leather lining and I'm in love.
Look at that gorgeous heel. They are still comfortable for me to wear to work (and I've worn them a LOT over the years - you can see the thrashing that the heel has taken, and the patent leather is getting a bit worn. I've never found another pair of black shoes as good as this, but somehow I keep looking.

What's your classic shoe? Heel? Flat? Is it black?

  1. Yayyy! Perfect timing for a Shoe Shine since I recently blogged about my newest shoes! They are leather and slowly getting really comfortable :)
    It's amazing that your black heels are so comfy---hard to find heels that are, so no wonder you're hanging on to them. They look in really great shape for being 5 years old!

  2. My old ideal used to be a Nine West pointy toe pump.

    Now? It's a pair of grey leather cydwoq oxfords. But I don't wear my 'ideal' shoes much. I tend to wear the fun stuff.

  3. Beautifully glam shoes, I'd love to wear them but can't keep heels on my feet unless they are strapped on!
