They arrived! The other day I tweeted doubting whether I should buy these shoes from Asos.com. I am not too keen on buying shoes online as my feet are slightly weird. One foot is larger than the other and the other is wider which makes certain shoes, especially heels, difficult to fit into properly. Add the fact that my feet have shrunk half a size over the past few months and I just wasn’t all that sure. I just prefer trying shoes on before laying down the cold hard cash. This time I made an exception because less than 40 euros for a pair of genuine leather shoes is a steal and I had been wanting a pair of green heels for quite some time.
When I first tried on the shoes they were super uncomfortable. I didn’t have time to return them straight away so when I got home later that night I tried them on again and kept them on my feet for a while. And lo and behold, they became comfier every time I slipped them on. I guess my feet still have to get used to the way the shoes fit as these are my highest pairs yet. The shoes have a 13 cm heel with a 2.5 cm platform. The platform makes them manageable and the heel is sturdy enough. They are tight, but I am also figuring that sizing up would make them too big. The leather will become softer over time anyway. just need to break them in. So I think I will just slip these babies on from time to time before actually wearing them to work.
I was wearing these while grabbing something in the kitchen and my housemate walked in: Wow you’re tall! these babies give me so much extra height. It’s amazing. Now I finally know what it’s like to be average height j/k ;-).
See, they do fit! I think here you can also see why these take some getting used to. You foot really has to arch into the shoe for it to stick. Since I don’t own any pairs that make my foot do that, it felt awkward at first, but it’s surprisingly painless after a few tries.
Do you like my new babies as much as I do? What’s the highest pair of heels you own?
