Q&A: You by Crocs?

Hi,    My friend came home from Colorado wearing You's green venice heels. She claims they are comfortable, they looked cute with her jeans on, but I am hesitant! I had to share with some of my fave shoe blogs to see if any had actually tried them?!    Love your site!     Thanks! Meg Dear Meg, Since your email address is meg***, and your I.P. address is from Colorado (Croc headquarters), we can only assume that you are a Crocs employee  trying to plug the You by … [Read more...]

Look Like Squeak

Last week,  Kim and I went out of town for the day, I was meeting an old friend, and she rode along for her day at the spa.

Can you imagine the pain and suffering that comes from trying to squeeze your feet into this shape.  Is this one of those  "things we do to look good"? … [Read more...]

Puma: Not a Pump

I have a co-worker that is very dedicated in checking out Shoeaholics Anonymous everyday. THANK YOU!   So today I was telling her about this Puma Women's Gv Spadrille  pump, and this is actually her titles and  thoughts... "The description on Amazon  refers to this shoe as a  super-cute pump.  I'm sorry, but  this is not my definition of a pump.  The leather upper, looks like rubber. Very Shiny, not a real fan of shiny. I have a problem with shiny. Rubber Outsole:  The whole thing looks … [Read more...]
