I just went to the mall and went to every store that sells shoes and I kid you not I could not find shoes I liked. And I am not dreadfully picky, although I was this time looking for a specific set.
So what do I do? it seems like this is a bad year for shoes for me. Here is what I am looking for:
- Black women dressy shoes
- with a 1" to 2.5" heel
- soft, both cushioned on the bottom, and the sides should be soft, too. Too many shoes have very stiff sides
- and “minimal” shoe; that is, I would preferably like it to just cover my toes (no toe cleavage though, I hate that)
- And probably the killer, Must be size 8 WIDE - 8.5 is too big and falls off my foot, and size 8 pinches my feet
Well, what I found was everything but! The heels in particular are annoying. I would have been flexible on a lot of those items, but I was determined to get a shoe with a little bit of a heel. I hate completely flat shoes; I don’t find them comfortable. But all they have are completely flat or 4" heels. No just no.
Help? Should I check Easy Spirit website? Naturalizer? Just bang my head on the desk until I change my mind about the kind of shoe I like?
