The Nine West espadrilles I bought yesterday were the most painful shoes I've ever stepped into. I was bawling downtown in sheer pain. Lesson learned: always have flats in your purse and don't by shoes with a steep wedge and little toe support. I needed something with black and admittedly these are still brown, but the black piping helps tie them in with the rest of my wardrobe. Macy's was kind enough to let me exchange the shoes and I walked away a happy camper. Though my feel are still ripped to shreds and swollen.
...Time for a glass of wine!
