'P' IS FOR PREPOSTEROUS SHOES!


Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘P’ is for PREPOSTEROUS SHOES (AND SOME OF THEIR OWNERS?)

I have quite narrow feet that would simply slide out of some of these creations with the result I’d collapse into an untidy heap on the floor!

What’s your view? How important is fashion to you? Would you put yourself in the shoes of some of these women even if they (hang on, the shoes!) were killing you?

KEY TO SHOES & THEIR OWNERS!
1 Vuitton - Victoria Beckham
2 " - Michelle Monaghan
3 " - Mischa Barton
4 Louboutin - Gywneth Paltrow
5 " - Heidi Klum
6 Margiela - Sarah Jessica Parker
7 & 8 Balmain - Audrina Patridge
9 Bottega Veneta- Jennifer Goodwin
10 Sergio Rossi - Zoe Saldana
11 Gucci - Kate Hudson
12 YSL
13Dior

14 Roger Vivier


















































































































































































































































































































DEAR READERS, WHICH SHOES DO YOU LIKE MOST AND LEAST? AND DO YOU PUT FASHION BEFORE YOUR FEET?!
Am off now for a run in trainers (and, no, not after the icecream van!) Have a great Alphabe-Thursday! And check out other great Alphabe-Thursday posts @
Jenny Matlock’s great site! And thank you so much for all the comments, new followers and visits.
PS See you for Six Word Saturday this ... Saturday!
XOXO LOLA:)

Viki said...

I would not. I would kill myself trying to walk in any of those. I'm not much of a fashionista anymore. I'm more for comfort now LOL.

mrs. c said...

i just had knee replacment surgery and the shoes I like are the ones that are comfortable! I would never, ever wear any of those silly shoes. Don't even know how they could possible be comfortable.

Short and Sweet said...

Thank you for your kind comments and for inviting me to your blog. I couldn't wear any of the shoes on your blog as I have wide and ugly feet! I'm all about comfort not fashion, and I wonder how those women can even walk in some of the creations they are wearing!

Charmingdesigns said...

Oh boy, I dont know how the stand up. I have a size 5 1/2wide...those shoes are NOT for me. lol

Riet said...

HI I love the last ones from YSL. They are tasteful and lovely , second best the blue ones and the rest is awful in my eyes. I don;t like shoes with anklebands'Great P post cause I love shoues

Jo said...

Although I no longer wear fashionable footwear i can still dream. The Louboutin's are my fav by far ... followed by the Sergio Rossi ... i absolutely do not like the Margiela's ... icky ...

French Fancy said...

I love shoes and am very proud of my teeny weeny feet. The thing is that they are wider than the average small foot and I have a lot of trouble buying shoes.

As for all those photos - how wonderful to have film star legs (unless they are Lassie's)

Heavenly Housewife said...

I love fashion, but i hate pain more. I don't think i'd look very fashionable with high heels and a bloody nose daaaaahling, so i gotta pass on those shoes.
*kisses* HH

Anna said...

Love this post! Crazy, crazy shoes! Did they actually walk in them?
Wow!
Thank you for visiting my p-post!
Hugs and best wishes,
Anna

baukje said...

I love to collect shoes...;Some weeks ago I bought ARCHE shoes, expensive but so elegant. When I was young (lol)I also bought shoes on wich i could hardly walk, now I choose comfortable and elegant shoes.

And I also ADORE Leonard Cohen, sooooooooooo sexy.

Cheryl said...

Feet before fashion, hands down. Sneakers, hiking boots, and Birks all the way.

Thanks for dropping by my Pathetic post. There was no email address so I tracked you down here.

Very cool post.

kim said...

Cute post. I have always been into fashion somewhat, but I cannot wear heels anymore. They kill my old feet!
Thanks for coming by!

GardenofDaisies said...

LOL! They are all pretty ridiculous! And I can't believe people pay so much money for them! No, I would not wear them. I don't want my toes to go numb 5 minutes after I put on my shoes. But to each his own.

JcVeggie said...

OMG!! Adorable post as usual!! I love your cool style girl:) Anyways I would TOTALLY wear these gorgeous shoes...Unfortunately though I have the weirdest feet from years of playing soccer and running. I have broken every single toe at least once and my feet are kind of duckish:) So if my lil funky monkey feet could fit into them and I had a pocket full of money I would totally be down! I think I like Gwenyth's the best...so elegant:) We totally need to do some international shoe shopping!

Debby said...

Whatever works I say!!! I will take my jeans and whatever comfy pair of shoes I have laying around...lol..

I love shoes but sadly can't wear anything high! That doesn't stop me getting lots of colour though. I love to co-ordinate my shoes with my outfit.
When I was a headteacher, the children would comment on my shoes when they were sat in assembly!

mbkatc230 said...

Most of these are ridiculous, if not outright atrocious. But I do love the Gucci and the YSL. My daughter Imelda, I mean Cait, is the shoe fanatic in our family. I prefer flip flops or no shoes at all :) Kathy

laterg8r said...

ewww to all the shoes except heidi klum's LOL :D

esp hate the ones sarah jessica parker is wearing UGH!!!

daylily777 said...

The question is : Are they wearing the shoes or Are the shoes wearing them ?lol
Blessings,

Terra said...

oh to be famous and be able to be an idiot and get away with it! I like COMFORT on my feet. Comfort.

Julie Schuler said...

I like sneakers!

VKT said...

I am a sneaker teacher. No way would I subject my feet to such misery...lol

Great P post....I just don't know what they see in those shoes....I guess I am too old to recognize fashion....yuck.

Jenny said...

I have to say that IF I ever become famous and have to dress stylish I am making you help me!

I thought I was rocking when I got some Keens!

I admire people who can wear this fashion well.

But, sadly, it's not me!

As always, though, I adore stopping here on my little journey through Alphabe-Thursday!

You just fascinate me!

A+

Berlin said...

These are gorgeous except number 6 & 12. These people are already tall so I don't see why they need to torture themselves..But, It's okay to wear these shoes for a special event =) I would make a shoe museum for these shoes =D


With bubbles & balloons,
Berlin

Pondside said...

I am SO boring. My current favorite shoes are Clark's.
Hanging my head in shame, but with happy feet..............

Christy said...

i am thinking that this should have been an H for hideous...yuck

Maggie B said...

Great P Post, these shoes look so Punishing! I know I would break my neck if I tried to take even one step in any of them.

teawithonesugarplease said...

Mmmm not keen on SJP's shoes

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Give me my old boots anytime. I have enough trouble staying upright most days, any of these would just finish me off...

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

whaha!!!
That is the perrrfect word to describe them darling! I like!!
Wonderful weekend beautiful!
xo*

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Lola and Nora,

VB's look like her boys have glued some of their toys to the shoes. Sorry.
I have often worn shoes that have hurt my feet and wonder why!

I hope that you are having a lovely weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

easternsparkle said...

I hate buying shoes - I'm built for comfort not fahion these days! About time somebody designed a pair for us with cankles who still like nice things!! Thanks for your comments on my blog - much appreciated! x

JoyACookin' said...

Love your site; found you through Six Word Saturday, but was captivated by your shoe post. P is for Precarious.

Most of these styles are for the 'driven' rather than the 'walking,' and most NYrs walk. A lot. Don't like SJP's hoof look, I'd feel like cattle. I love shoes that make me feel pretty but my feet like comfort so usually I end up with something pretty comfortable. Thing is, the more I go for feeling good the less tolerant are my feet of high-style. The only thing I always want on my feet is a good pedicure, so thank God it's Spring.

I see that you’ve visited SB&C. Thanks for stopping by!

Punctuation Mark said...

i'd love to have all of them... have a great weekend!!!

Steph said...

Some of those are pretty and some are pretty crazy. I am fairly tall and have always chosen comfort over fashion (no heels). But then I don't get my feet taken pictures of.

RNSANE said...

Frankly, I don't like any of them...and, at 65, I can no longer wear the high heels I used to love. These styles are never ones I would have chosen, even in my youth!!!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Ew! to #1,2,and 3...they actually look pretty much alike with too much added embellishments. I like heels, but Kate Hudson's are like stilts! Her photo looks pretty stretched out...I wonder just how high these ones are?

Actually, if I wear flats for too long (unless there is some arch support, my feet start to ache.

Blessings & Aloha!
