I bought new pumps for work after so long.
Just before going back to work, I hit the mall to look for a new pair of shoes for work. The flats I’ve been using for more than 1 year (also the last pair of shoes I bought) have been used so often that it’s beat up.
So I started looking for the shoes. Me looking for shoes is a big deal since my shoe-buying frequency now is like… 1 pair a year?
(Impulsive shopping days are long gone.)
My target? A pair of basic heels that won’t hurt (the Ferragamos I have at home now sadly do). Heels because I wish to look more office appropriate this year. Ooh they must be reasonably priced, too.
It’s so hard to look for basic black pumps that are comfortable — the reason why I’ve been wearing flats for so long is because buying heels’s been so challenging lately. Maybe because my threshold for pain reduced or something.
After going to several shops, I ended up going to Isetan because the choices were better there. Shoes for wide feet (or rather… bunions) were available at one part of the store. These shoes focus more on function rather than fashion, so they’ve got thicker and more solid heels but most of them look ugly.
Tried a few, but I settled for a pair of pumps with mid heels that are relatively comfortable and still OK-looking from Geox, a brand I trust and it was at 1/2 price.
So yay, new working heels. Suddenly I feel taller than most people lololol.
Been wearing them to work this week. After a while of walking my feet still hurt in them FML but I’m hoping that this is an adjusting period for my feet, considering that I’ve been wearing flats for the past few years 99% of the time.
May the force be with my feet.
What comfortable and good-looking work-appropriate shoes do you guys own?
