The Shoes

Readers, meet The Shoes.

I adore them. I want to wear them. They are calling to me in a soft, cooing tone, saying "We belong on your feet!"

It's not necessarily the black patent I love, but the shape. So I went on a search for affordable shoes with a similar shape. All I found were these:

On sale for $19.99 at Urban Outfitters, they are certainly within budget. But the question remains: are they chic or heinous? I can't decide. On first glance, I thought U-u-u-gly, but they have definitely grown on me. I could picture them looking great with black tights and little grey herringbone plaid shorts.

More importantly, are there other, less debatable shoes that will give me a similar look on a budget?

I'll be searching...

no no no...honey, they look like nurse shoes in that color and the nubuck isn't working! Go for something similar but in leather, not patent, just nice leather in a dark color. THAT would work! better to invest in something a little more quality than to blow your hard earned moolah on crap...

The UO shoes just don't compare.

I have the UO shoes in black and though I was skeptical at first, the online picture does not do them justice. They are actually quite chic. However, I'm not so sure how they would turn out in the grey.

It's got to be patent!

yeah, the UO shoes aren't quite in the same category as the patent ones. I actually got some similar-looking shoes a couple years ago (similar to the UO, not the pretty ones!) and regretted it. I don't remember my inspiration for buying them, but they made me feel un-feminine and I wore them once before giving them away.

nothing compares to the vagabond version. (why, oh, WHY won't they ship to the US?)

i actually have those UO shoes in grey. i like the look (though i am partial to frumpy things), but i don't highly recommend them. they're a bit on the heavy side and not particularly comfortable.

Oh my gosh, love. The patent is really what makes them, tho.

you could always get the grey and dye them a darker color with shoe dye...
