Wordless Wednesday: Shoe bliss

My granddaughter’s new shoes. Oh to be young and perfect again, if it’s only to be able to wear such gorgeous shoes without toppling over. πŸ™‚



We’re on our 7 hour drive back home today, after a fabulous few days with our daughter and family.Β  I have internet signal for a while, until we get beyond the greater Johannesburg city limits. Thank you all so much for your lovely wishes for Mandy’s birthday. I feel that I have a much larger family these days. You’re all amazing. πŸ™‚ I’ll be madly catching up once I’m back to normal.

  1. I don’t know how they do it! My daughter insists that the platforms make it easier to balance oneself, but I still think I’d need a walking stick!

  2. I have to say, much as I like shoes, I don’t much like this new sort-of platform fashion they’ve got going.
    Maybe it’s because I’m getting old πŸ˜‰
    Enjoy the drive AD, and take care!!

    • I wouldn’t go for platforms any more. I’m already too tall for C, so tend to keep to lower heels. I did used to wear them a lot in the 70’s though, and the day my son was born, I was wearing 4″ platforms. πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve never been able to wear shoes with heels like that. Much admiration to your granddaughter. From the picture you shared yesterday of her yesterday I can tell that she must walk with much poise and confidence.

    I also love your award free badge πŸ˜€

    • I think we all have had our ‘killer heel’ moments, Hopestar. I still have a couple of pairs in my cupboard which I can’t bear to part with. I occasionally try them on, but wouldn’t go shopping in them. πŸ˜€
      Hugs to you.

  5. Love those shoes. I so would’ve have worn those when I was younger. Next best thing for me is shopping with my daughter and having her walk in the pretty shoes. Glad you had a wonderful visit πŸ™‚

  6. P. S. Sorry- I didn’t see the Award Free logo till the comment above mine pointed it out, so apologies. (no points for observation, as usual) πŸ™‚

  7. Catching up is the name of the game! I’m doing it in Krakow and I want those shoes! I don’t have to walk anywhere. πŸ™‚

  8. OMG. Love, love, love those shoes! I can’t wear those types anymore without my calves hurting after an hour, but I know a few ladies that can wear stilettos every day w/o complaint O_o

  9. I love the shoes, and would have worn them decades ago. Wish they made shoes like that for seniors – stylish, great looking, but comfy and walkable!

  10. Amazing… I will never get it into my head how women can walk in those shoes… says he the “bare foot boy”…

  11. oh my goodness – love those shoes!!! Hm I agree, heels are a bit on the high side but to wear them just for a little “show-off” time would make me happy. Wishing you a safe and uneventful journey back home.

  12. Ooooh, love them and yes, know what you mean AD. I still have some high heels as well but oh dear… LOL!

  13. Lovely shoes! I am now over wearing high heels unfortunately, it is becoming painful
    (wearing them and not being able to wear them). But did so every day of my life when I was young. *sigh*.
    Love your ‘award free” badge (I may borrow it?)

  14. I’m afraid I was far too much of a tomboy to get the hang of wearing modest heels, much less stilettos like those. But they are pretty.
    Have a good trip on your way home. How lovely you had such fun.

  15. Wow …. that is what I call …. serious shoes. I love stripes and combination blue & white. A young lady with style.
