Hooked on Birkenstocks works fer me!! I have about 10 pairs of them.

I DO own 1 pair of 70's style strappy black platform shoes for my "dressing up" days. I was thinking about getting another pair just to have a variety.

Noodles! Darling, when your eyes are better, go and count your Birks. If there are any there that are older than your daughter, throw them out, and go and post in the Spring Cleaning thread.

Deep down I am a thigh high, high heeled leather boot. But most of the time I am a comfy, beat up pair of Chucks.

Ellis: I got a pair from 1996...my "free" pair that got me hooked. I use to think they were the ugliest shoe alive, then my friend gave me her pair of black strappy sandally type she didn't like and so me being the freebie lover figured hey, cant hurt to try them!! I wound up LOVING them...especially after getting arthritis. Now I use Birki cork to keep them fresh. Speaking of...there's a red pair I'm eyeing on EbaY....hmmmmm...

Birks have come a long way. There are sooooooo many different styles out there now. I have a pair with straps around the ankle and all. (Black, of course.) They are comfy. They were also a godsend when I broke my toe a couple of years back. They were the only thing that fit!! The only time I have a problem with birks is if they are worn with socks, white socks, wool socks, any kind of sock AND NEVER IN THE WINTER. What's up with that?

There, that's my rant.

Heels, gotta have heels. At least two inches, often 3, and even more if I can get them. Preferably slides or mules, a little retro, and some sort of weird color or decoration, like my black-and-white herringbone spike slingbacks with the peep-toe and the black velvet bows.... Good Lord I love shoes.... I must have about 35 pairs at the moment.... what can I say, it's the only way I can get my chunky legs and bubble butt to look long and lean... I wanna be Betty Boop when I grow up....

Secretly I wanna be a beautiful pair of 3" ankle strap black suede shoes.

In public I am a pair of K-mart $3.00 white flat sneakers.

I don't know what this is saying about myself, but if I have to be honest "mules" they are my favorite. Can wear at office or home, easy on easy off, comfy, socks or none. Yeah "mules" heels, flats, wedges, leather, micro fiber doesn't matter, the open back does it for me.
