Shoes Blues At The Mall


Have you shopped for shoes lately?  I admit I haven't.  I don't enjoy shopping for shoes or clothes.  I know...something is awry in my DNA!  But, I need some dressy casual shoes, if there is such a thing, to wear with my dressy jeans, my slacks & sweaters, and such.  I don't dress real fancy since I stopped working a dozen or so years ago.  I dress in comfortable clothes.  I just don't look like a fashion model.  I look like a fluffy Grandma.  So, I try to shop for clothes and shoes that feel good and hopefully look good.


So, today, while we were in Tucson for a medical procedure (HB HoneyBunny's) we stopped at the Mall to look for shoes for me.  It had nothing to do with the Macy's Christmas gift card we got!  Really!  Well!  Have you seen the styles?  Mercy me - a sixty-something woman could get hurt wearing most of the shoes in the stores today!  I wouldn't dare to even stick my toes in a pair!  The platforms are so high or the heels so long and skinny I could not possibly maintain my balance for even a minute!  I'd be in the ER in nothing flat!


And, did I mention ugly?  (my opinion, mind you).  I know some of you are younger and probably think these are the bomb, but I am definitely not young and I find them unbearable.  Do department store buyers even know ladies over fifty exist?  Does it ever enter their minds that we just might want shoes that are fashionable as well as comfortable?  I am here to tell them that YES we do!  So, where are they?  Show me the stores that carry them!  Point me to a buyer who understands us!


At long last I did find a pair of flats at Sears that will do until I find something better.   Tsk...it is like hunting for a needle in a haystack.  I simply cannot wear tennis shoes everywhere.  I need something between tennies and these dangerous designs that are sitting on shelves everywhere!  This may take awhile!

  1. I don't like shopping either, so glad to have finally met someone like me! For a while I thought I was the only woman in the world who didn't like shopping and was a bit worried.

    I pray when I go shopping so that I can find what I want as quickly as possible at the best possible price! I hope you find exactly what you need at a very good price :)

    Love

    1. Me, too with the sneakers! But sometimes I need something a little more than sneaks!

  3. Ugg's are expensive but soooo worth it! I always look for comfort but the heels are really eye catching. Unfortunately can't wear them though because I am already tall, so they make me look like a giant (or I just feel awkwardly tall) and I can't walk without feeling like I am on a tight rope :)

    1. NJ, I think Uggs would be too bulky to suit me. My step-daughter and granddaughters have them and they just look like something for the arctic to me. I live in the desert. LOL!

  4. Lol! Oh yeah...I forgot. I miss warm weather :) I'd give up my uggs for it!

  5. So funny! I laughed just looking at the shoes. I remember - many years ago - wearing some like them. If I'd ever fallen off of them, I'd broken my ankle bones right in two. This 60 something Momma 'ain't' trying them again.

    I HATE shopping of any kind. Just abhor it. I managed to raise a daughter who also hates to shop. I hope her husband thanks me some day for that.

    1. Teehee...yes, years before I had my bunion surgery I might have worn something similar to this. Those days are long gone! LOL

  6. I am so glad you shared your view of the shoes of today. I can't stand the look and never learned to walk on a tightrope. I will stick to my very low shoes.

  7. I actually find all these shoes cute - - - - on my 26 year old fashionista daughter, NOT ON ME!!! I think they would be PAINFUL.

    I wear flip flops in summer and shoes that cover me up to my navel in winter.

    Hehehehehehe
