Heels

My Collection

Recommended Posts

         I am going talk about all  my pairs of heels. Why I bought them, what I like about and not like about them. I have over 25 pairs and that not including the ones I sold. This could take some time and not going be doing this in one go.  Going to try to talk about my heels in the order that I bought them.

          When I first started thinking about owning a pair of Ladies high heel shoes back in 2007 all I wanted was one pair of court shoes and one pair of sandles with a heel of about 4.5 inches. Colour didn't matter and didn't want a pair of boots. At that time I just wanted to see what it was to walk in a pair of high heels. Didn't even know if I could walk in high heels. 

 

         I didn't know about this place or the other site. I was very much on my own about all this.  I could never of bought a pair from a proper shop not even sure if most shops went up to my size, Ebay was my only choice.  Not quite sure about my shoe size in a woman size so I went larger then I should of done.

 

         My first pair was a red cross-strap court shoe from Pleaser with a 4.5" heel. Bought from Ebay. Well pleased with them and were able to wear them all day inside with no problems. The metal rings in the straps made them so easy to put on, which I did like.  I did sell them because they were two sizes to big and I manged to damaged the heels at a heel meet. I would buy them again in the right size this time. 

Photo in my gallery.

 

      Second pair were a plain black court from The Highest heel collection. Sold them on as one size to big and also damaged the heels at the same heel meet as the other pair. Photo in gallery.

 

     Third pair was black 6.5" D'orsay from Ellie.  I wanted to see I could walk in such I high pair of heels. No I could not. Sold them on again. Just didn't fit my feet very well at all. I do not have a photo of these to hand.

 

     Forth pair  are black  7" sandles with a 2" platform.  Have worn them out once at a night club with no problems.   Not to sure that I like the styling around the vamp part of the shoe.  Had to have the straps made longer  and not very pleased with the repair made to them. Slightly to big as well. One thing I noticed about wearing them you do feel much taller and there a strange feeling the floor is much closer to you when you get up from a chair. Photo in gallery.

    5Th pair are the black Mary-Jane heels from Hollywood Heels.  I remember trying them on for the first time and noticing how comfortable they were. The leather is very soft to the touch.  Have worn them out around Camden and other places in London. Going past some dodgy places in London. I had Tara (Dr Shoe) and another member from HHplace with me at the time.  Had a nice long walk from the Shoe repairers to the nearest underground station.

 

  6th pair are the Newlook peep-toes.  First pair that  I have bought from a shop. (Newlook Westfield), had Fred with me at the time. Also worn this pair around London as well. This was the Friday on a HHP world heel meet.

 

 7th pair are The Highest Heel collection with the red soles.  I wanted a very simple pair of high heels. That is a pair of heels with a basic vamp and thin ankle straps. Just 1 size to big but are comfortable and just about walk in them around in my flat.

 

  8th pair are the Faith T-Strap. Bought in Guildford. Had to wait a little  while  before I could try them on in the shop.  Everything is  right about this pair. Nice high heel very comfortable and  look good on.  Worn this pair out in Bristol .  Had to replace the buckle . Found another cobbler near to where I live.  so I use him to have me heels repaired.

They are nice, but the heel on the sandals looks like it's not set at the right angle.

True, but I'm hoping that is the (wide angle) lens on the camera/phone introducing some distortion? You can see a similar effect on some of the other photo's too, though not quite as obvious.

Will have another look on those red sole ones later. I don't think the heel is set at the wrong angle. I might of deformed the shoe bed whist wearing them.

   9th pair are New Look blue wedge slingback heels. Bought in Bristol on a heel meet.  Did manage to wear them around Camden but sold them on as strap kept on falling down.

 

  10th  are Faith Black Patent hidden heels. Very sexy and I did like them but were to small for me.Just could not wear them  for more then 10 minutes let alone walk in them. Might have a photo of these that I will put up on my gallery. Sold these on as well.

 

  11th pair are New Look satin court shoe. Bought in Portsmouth. Had a nice chat with the sells woman about these.

 

  12th pair are Faith Brown  leather hidden court shoe. Bought these to replace the black patent ones. I can wear these for about 3 hours. 

 

 13th pair  are Faith Brown wedge slingback. Bought these in the hope I be wearing them out on heels meets. Not been on a heel since.

                   Bought these two pairs before I bought pair 5 but some how forgot  to write about them. Bought them at my first world heel meet in London. Pair on the right I used to wear all the time.  The pair on the left I didn't wear that much. Little bit to high for me with the heel being just under 6" high and I couldn't wear them that long.  Tried them on the other day and found I could walk in them  fairly easy around my flat and wore them for about 4 hours with out any problems. Both pairs are from L.S.B and must be over 20 years old.  The inner lining on the left pair is becoming worn now on one shoe.
