  1. This is the most perfect list of tips ever. I need to print a copy and stick it in my wallet me t to my credit card!!!!
     
  2. Yes, tell me about that :smile: I have several pairs in boxes that were kept for a special occasion that never came.
    BTW, sometimes it is not such a bad thing to get a half size up. I do this intentionally and add gel insoles especially for shoes that are meant to be worn all day long. No matter the brand or make, most pumps have little to none cushioning at the ball of the foot.
     
  3. ^ great tip...
     
  4. Great advice! I don't have anything to add - I am terrible at editing. I just know that if a shoe doesn't make my heart go pitter-patter, it is out so that I can make room for something that does.
     
  5. I used to have TONS of cheap shoes with a few better ones in the mix.. The trendier, the better. Didn't matter if they hurt my feet... didn't care.. they looked cute and that was enough

    Editing was pretty simple for me... I got to the age where my older feet just can't do cheap shoes and man made materials..I donated a LOT of them... so by default I have to replace and have to get leather.. and since it is more expensive, I have to be choosy about what I buy.

    I am satisfied with what I have at this point. The basics with a couple of fun ones in the mix.. but not the hundreds of $20 shoes I used to have
