cheap shoes  

I seldom let myself buy very cheap shoes... Not because I'm a snob but because they seldom fit me well. But I caved and ordered these a coupla months ago because they looked pretty promising and I'm loving these nude and dusty pink tones...

They finally came today after a long wait!

Looked great from certain angles...

But...

They don't really fit my scrawny feet so well. :(

I guess I don't have enough flesh in the right places to fill them properly?

The straps don't lie flat like they should. Sigh. They look great on their own though!

Should they stay or should they go? Maybe I can keep them as thrash-around shoes?

I love the pink for you, but the beige not so much. But for fit, I would say send them back. If you keep any for kicking around make it the pink - the colour and fit are better for you.

I knew I could count on an input from you! :)

Unfortunately, I can't return them. I can only pass them around to friends of a similar size. I agree, the nude colour is a bit duller than I would like. I love how light and springy the cork soles are! It's a pity the entire shoe isn't more well-made - I can see the fabric upper wearing out pretty easily.

Ah sad but true. And I did notice the Bonito Chico label on them, but wasn't sure if they were returnable.

Naked Lady Party!

Naked Lady Party
You and your friends get together with all the clothes which no longer fit or which were just bad calls - and you just swap. [we give the leftovers to charity, but that's us]

Sounds great! I should see if my friends are up for one! :D

Hah! thrash-around shoes for me are boat shoes or paddock boots!

These are cute, especially the pink ones, but aren't your toes gonna zoom out the ends when you walk?

LOL! In our weather, trash-around shoes must be open-toes for me!

Now that you've brought it up, my baby toes do stick out a little in the side slit but the front gap is okay! :D I have skinny feet but fat toes... LOL!
