The Red Shoes

I have always had a love of shoes. In a former life, I could also walk steadily and confidently in heels...then I had children! These shoes made me buy them. I couldn't argue, they had to come home with me. They are going to be worn to a very special occasion shortly though...


I have a couple of days to learn how to walk in heels this high again, without breaking another ankle (which was actually broken whilst wearing flat shoes ironically!). Wish me luck...!

  1. Those are some sexy shoes! Could almost be worn alone. But I assume that's not the idea? :-)

  3. Ooooooh - they're beautiful! Good luck and enjoy and don't forget to tap your heels together three times...there's no place like home ; )

  6. I can't sign in to reply properly for some reason...

    @I'mSoFancy... thankfully not the idea (it's not warm enough!)! :)

    @Lijn, thank you! I am going to attempt it, even if it means I have to stand still all day!

    @KittyB - thanks Kitty, the shoes worked, that's where I am now, minus the small dog, the lion, the tin man and the scarecrow!!

    @Mina - thank you! :)

    @Kellogsville - thank you... I loved that film!

  7. They are beautiful!
    I think you should wear them (however impractical this may sound!) with jeans to the shops a few times to break them in.
    If you can trick your brain into thinking they are casual shoes, a night out at a special occasion will be a breeze!

  8. Thank you Fro Fashion Fairy... some good tips there! Wore them yesterday and they weren't too bad, but the old feet are a bit achey today, and I have to wear them again tonight to the party part of the wedding...! Emma :)

  9. Oh, they're fab! Hope you can walk in them. H bought me some amazing heels for our last anniversary (quite out of character, I might add). They're stunning but I can't walk a metre in them so they are now on a mantelpiece cheering up the room.

    @postcardsfrompramstead - thank you! What a fabulous idea, I might just do the same with mine!!

    @chocorangecitymum - thank you! I think that's what sold them to me, I love details like that!

  15. I love red shoes. I have a couple of pairs, not as dramatic and fabulous as these though! That's going to be a great occasion I reckon?

  17. Were these lovelies found in Denmark? My red suede pumps are tired and should be replaced soon. But, alas! Jutland is not a haven of pretty and impractical shoes.

  18. Thanks Sage...I can imagine with all those beautiful cobblestoned streets nearby heels might not be the easiest to walk in!! They are LK Bennett shoes, bought in London unfortunately, BUT they do have a website and I think they deliver!! www.lkbennett.com Emma :)

  19. Excellent! Thank you :) If I ride my bike and walk very carefully on my toes, it is possible, though not practical or advisable to do cobblestones in heels!
