As I mentioned earlier this week, I've had knee issues off and on for my entire adult life. I could tell you all the physical reasons why, but no one’s really that interested. Unfortunately for me, it makes my shoe choices difficult. I adore high heels, but they are hard to wear for very long, and completely flat shoes put strain on my shins. I know, very first world problems. I’ve been looking for a pair of shoes that I could wear to work, go with everything, are professional, cute, not too grandma, and ok for my knees.

This pair completely fit the bill. I. love. them. so. much.  Not only that, my husband said these reminded him of a pair of snakeskin pumps he bought me years ago (yes, he buys me accessories I love without guidance. Sorry, ladies, he's taken). Unfortunately, the toe opening feels like a razor on the top of my big toe. I tried and tried to justify them, but they’re going back. Sadface.

(PS I tweeted about this over the weekend, but am really disappointed that 6pm.com doesn't have free return shipping. It's going to cost me money just for trying these on. Really wish I had done my homework first, and probably won't be using 6pm again)

These are on their way to me as we speak, but not too psyched about the price...I've added sale alerts for them on every site I can.
