Last night, I was sitting through hour 12 of my 15 hour traveling ordeal when I noticed a spicy, stylish AARP-aged lady in front of me with the greatest shoes ever. Here is a faithful transcript of our conversation.
Belle: Ma’am, where did you get those flats? They are divine.
stops, pauses, looks at my shamefully beat-up DvF flats, which I commute in…
Lady: (whispering) They were kind of expensive.
Belle: (seeing the scalloped edges) Oh, so they’re Chloe.
Lady: (mildly impressed, as if I have just redeemed myself in some way, then like she’s congratulating a vexious Malti-Poo) Good girl.
You win some, you lose some. These are the shoes I’m talking about.
I really love them. And they look like they would go with my entire wardrobe. But $595 is a lot to spend on shoes. On a cost per wear theory, by the end of the year the $595 would probably come out to $2.5o per wear. But still not cheap.
I may order them, see if they’re comfortable or if they’re stiff and blister-inducing. If they don’t work out, then I can just send them back.
I did find them on a mild discount on FarFetch, but $416 isn’t exactly comforting. For something similar in a lower price point, I found these.
The style is similar, but the cork isn’t as versatile. They would be a good summer shoe though. I also found these $69 perforated Naturalizer shoes that looked promising. And for a total cheapie, these NY & Co. perforated flats for $15.
