Hi all! I'm a shoe-a-holic... I have probably 80+ pairs by now, I can't even keep track. And it just dawned on me that I don't have the Tory Burch flats everyone's been talking about (and copying... shame on you, Payless et al.). So I'm contemplating getting the flats, or the newer pumps. My first concern, though, is if they're worth getting, trend-wise. I know they're still in style this season, but do you think they'll be totally out next year? I think they're cute, and I'm usually not one to be concerned about trends- but that's mainly because I usually buy classic stuff (and, yes, my definition of "classic" includes Jimmy Choos in pretty much any style made ), and so this would really be one of my first "trendy" purchases. The next is that I feel kind of weird buying expensive flats. I have a few pairs, and honestly, I'm pretty insecure about my 5'7" frame. I know, I know, it's taller than average, and I'm no Carrie Bradshaw height-wise.... but I just end up buying pumps most of the time. Maybe now's the time to buy another pair of flats? It would be really helpful to know from any of you who have these shoes how comfy and wide they are... I have pretty wide feet. Does the ruching on the back of the flats make your heels hurt? My final concern is just that unless I wait until these are on sale to buy them, I'm spending $200-$300 on a pair of shoes that aren't Choos, CLs, or Manolos. I have *so* many "basics" - mostly from Charles David - and so I feel like I should expand my "upper end" collection more. What would you do? Anyway, without further ado, here are pix (c/o Neiman's). Thanks so much in advance for your help!
