Walking in My Shoes




Walking in My Shoes is a song by Depeche Mode (see this Youtube link for a little background tunage while I get to the point)


The point is I am giving you (yes YOU) the chance to walk in my shoes.  Literally!  


These shoes to be exact:




I bought these adorable, super cute, splendiferous shoes way back when we were still buried in snow.  I tried to wear them the other day, but I wobbled all over the place.  The heel is too skinny for my uncoordinated self.

WHY OH WHY did I buy heels?  I don't do heels.  I hurt myself in heels.  Yes, even ones that are this short!




But these were PINK (my favorite color) and oh-so-cute (and did I mention on clearance?  The dead of winter is a great time to buy sandals!)


I faithfully stored them all winter.  Just waiting for the weather to warm up enough...and now I can't wear them without spraining an ankle.

Harumph.

They're a size 9, in perfect shape (see? no scuffs!)




and I will send them to YOU if you want 'em.  


We should make this fun somehow...so tell me what you think you might learn about me by walking in my shoes. 


(be as outrageous as you like, we need a good laugh this late in the week!)


Do YOU want to walk in my shoes?

Very pretty - but i need something that 'hangs on' to my foot :)

Vey pretty shoes, I love pink, but my feet are too small for them. :( I hope someone wants to give them a good home though.

India Drummond said...

Too small for my big old feet (Well, I am 6'0 tall!) but what a cute contest!

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

LOL. you are hilarious! Poor abandoned shoes. I hope you're col-sole-ing them? hehe. I hate pink, though, so no thanks! hahah!

How sweet of your to think of your blogger buddies' feet when your shoes no longer fit. I'm a size 7 1/2, so they won't fit me. I hope your shoes find the right pair of feet.

Jen said...

Poor shoes!!! If I could fit in them I would have jumped on them for sure!! Problem is I'm a size 7 so there is no way my feet will fit in there... not to mention my husband is the same height as me so he isn't exactly fond of the heels!

Good Luck!

JustineDell said...

Those shoes were meant for me!! My size! My color! Now I need to think of something good. Hmm....hold on.

K, got it! ;-) I want to walk in your shoes because your funny! Your blog is the shiznit! Your life (the way you tell it) is exciting, adventurous (in the mom type way), and full of laughs! But basically:

Your the shiznit! ;-)

Alas, I cannot fill your shoes. Even if I could I'm afraid, like you, anything not listed as FLAT isn't an option. Does "fallen and I can't get up" ring a bell?

What is it with all these small feet? Do you know how lucky you are?

As an aside, as I was taking the pics of these shoes my NINE year old tried them on and they fit! (sorry, nine year olds don't get to wear cute heels)

So we did the foot alignment thing to see how her foot compares to mine and OMG, her foot is only like an inch smaller than mine!

AND

Her foot is now officially bigger than her nearly fifteen year old sister's!

That child is going to have some big feet...but she'll probably be taller than me!

I would love to walk in your shoes, but I'm afraid I stumble in heels too (even the short ones). They are so cute, I can see why you wanted them. If you're like me, you will try to wear heels ever so often just in hopes some how life has changed and you can. :) Good luck finding them a new home.

I'd LOVE to walk in your shoes but it seems you've got some pretty big shoes to fill...I'm a size 6.5 (foot). Which is a pity since I love heels AND pink.

KarenG said...

WEll I might qualify. I am feeling very Cindarella like here, only I'm the stepsister with the big feet! Yes, I wear 81/2 or 9. I have to try them on to see if they would fit. If they're a snug 9 I could wear them. They are so cute and yes I'd love those shoes but don't know if they would fit!! If you said 8 1/2 I'd say send them send them!

Lenny said...

...hugs from lenny

Jaydee Morgan said...

Not my size either but I absolutely love them! Love the color and style - you have fine taste :)

Talli Roland said...

Ooh, pretty pretty shoes! And such a great contest. I'd love to walk in your shoes but my hoofers are too big!

Culture Served Raw said...

Pretty!! Love the colour though I would never pull it off.

Creepy Query Girl said...

Those are SO cute!!! I've got dwarf feed though (size 7) I keep wanting to sing 'these boots are made for walkin' now.

laurel said...

Love the style, but I am more of a pale-pink gal and my tootsies are too small. But this is a fun giveaway just the same!

Sandy Shin said...

I think it's so, so pretty! Sadly, my feet are too small.

Tahereh said...

omg so cute!! i, too, i'm afraid, have feet that are too small for your lovely slippers.

i hope they find a good home!

DL Hammons said...

This is ARKANSAS....I'd probably get arrested if I tried to walk in your shoes!! :)

Wendy Ramer said...

I would so love to walk in your shoes. However, I'm a solid size 8, so instead I will just continue reading your wonderful blog and learning more and more about you with each post ;-)

Carolyn V. said...

I would probably twist my ankle, because I've been known to be a bit clumsy. =)

Sydnee said...

Curses! I wear a size 11! Your splendiforous shoes would leave blisters on my toes. :(

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I think what I'd learn is...that my feet are too big to squeeze into your shoes. :) Fun idea!
