I’m a woman who’s a freelance writer. I write a lot about shoes. My husband’s a man who’s a newspaper sports editor. He writes a lot about … sports. You wouldn’t think that those two worlds would collide, would you? But he pulled it off in his column today for his paper, the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, in Tupelo, Mississippi. And he even got me in there! (Thanks, sweetie.) Read it at http://www.djournal.com/pages/story.asp?ID=285705.
And speaking of shoes, these $300 Cole Haan red patent pumps caught my eye at zappos. com. “This posh peep-toe pump is a perfect marriage of comfort and style,” the description says. Yes, indeedy. Is that me all over or what? (With, I’ll admit, an emphasis on the “comfort” part. Gone are the days when I teetered around for 10 hours on 3-inch heels. Sigh.) Anyway, I think these are the perfect Valentine’s Day shoes, paired with a slinky black dress and some great jewelry. Don’t y’all?
These shoes are quite lovely and I covet them. My husband loves high heels and these would fit the bill quite nicely.
Dear John L. Pitts, nice Steelers article…..now how about A-Rod!!
Meanwhile, Cathy, nice shoes!
Very cute. Very cute indeed.
Let me know if they’re really comfortable.
By the way, nice article!!
I just sent a friend request on FB…
nice shoes not sure if 3 inch heels and comfort go together let us know!
Thanks. I’ll have my own take on A-Rod in a couple of days.
His story dovetails with that of a Mississippi hero, former major leaguer Rafael Palmeiro. He played his college baseball at Mississippi State and tested positive for steroids after going to The Hill and vowing that he hadn’t. Doh!
I’ve heard Cole Haan’s shoes are known for comfort. However, 3″ heels are no longer part of my vocabulary. I’d be interested in your assessment of comfort and heels. Enjoy the ride!
Dear Cathy and John L. Pitts, I would enjoy reading your upcoming column on A-Rod so if Cathy could give us a “heads up” – maybe you can tell I am a disappointed Yankee fan 🙂
Dear Kathy (commenter #9) I learned the hard way at my niece’s wedding on Jan 11 when I pulled my calf muscle while dancing in stiletto heels— for me, heels are just for making an appearance now! Have a lovely day, all!
Thanks for all the comment love, y’all! And these shoes, sadly, only are on my wish list — not in my closet. But we can dream, can’t we???
I selflessly volunteer my feet to share in this high-heeled endeavor 😉
Hot Damn! Yessiree. I love Zappos. Thanks for stopping by today!
Love those! I never wear heels though unless I have to (ie the dress looks really, really bad without them). I’m 5’11” and I’m also a comfort creature.
Lecia — Lucky you to be so tall!
Ann — Zappos is like a treasure trove that always refills itself no matter how fast you try to empty it!
And dear sweet daughter Carolyn — You know I rely on you for all shoe testing!
I’m not a shoe loving Grrrl but even I have to admit those red heels are TEMPTING. Esp. if you’re wearing red panties. :O
V-Grrrl — I like the way you think!
I have those shoes in black. I feel great every time I put them on. Yes, they are comfortable. Comfortable for heels anyway. Best of all they look amazing. And in red – oh.my.goodness.
Oh, Karen — now I really, really, really want these! Tbanks!
