UPDATE (3/9): Just bought these shoes on Etsy! I'm pretty sure my feet are too wide for them, but I'll let you know what happens. Thanks for your help!
Sorry for the non-food-related post, but this is the easiest way for me to reach a buttload of people at once. THANK YOU FOR READING! For without you, I am nothiiiiinnggg.
First off, I'm not a big fan of shoes. Most of them don't fit me well because my feet are wider than average, and although I primarily buy shoes for comfort, not fashion (no high heels, please), I don't want shoes that, while comfortable, look like crap. My shoe collection consists of sneakers from Camper (my most oft-worn shoes), flip flops I bought at a Gap outlet mall over three years ago, Birkenstocks from three years ago, red flats from Camper that don't fit well because I should've bought a 38 instead of a 37 (although even if I got a 38, I suspect they would still be too tight), black flats from Clarks that are thankfully comfortable that I bought...I don't know how long ago, super warm fuzzy boots that are great when it's super cold and were adequate for walking in the snow until one of the soles wore away, and yellow flats made of plastic that I bought last summer for fun but are impractical because my feet are just a smidge too wide for them.
Fun, semi-formal shoes just don't work for me. And I'm okay with that because there are very few I'd ever want.
EXCEPT! In an instance of super rare desires, for some reason I really want this one pair of boots (or booties, rather; photos after this paragraph) in a specific design, and I feel like they must exist in my size. Whether or not they would be comfortable, I don't know...because I haven't found them yet. I randomly passed a vintage store last week that had the boots I pictured in my mind, but they were a size 7 and I'm a 7.5 to 8.
- Omg. Shoez. Thanks to Diana for taking the photos.
Simple white booties with just a little heel, and with that...uh...flappy bit that looks like a collar. There's probably a better term than "flappy bit."
I figure most of you are more fashion-minded than I am, and some of you live in New York City and know the shoe-scape better than I do. I haven't really looked around for these shoes; I don't know where I'd start. But if you think, "Oh, I know where to get something like that in NYC," after looking at the photos above, please let me know. Thanks! (I haven't searched much online, but even if I found them I wouldn't buy them since I need to visit a store to try them on.)
