Traveling Shoe Buyer

To touch on
the title, we are all familiar with the “Traveling Shoe salesman”. I cannot
even imagine, going door to door, attempting to sell shoes to anyone. Just
seems a little in-efficient. But I guess in the past, it was a job and there
were people willing to do it. I think the “traveling shoe buyer” would
be the better job to have. πŸ˜‰

I was
recently in Ohio for a business trip. I was excited to go to Ohio as it is the
location of the Corporate headquarters for DSW. I felt there is not a place
that should be better than the location of the headquarters for the
representation of the business. As I did find some things to be different there
was nothing to vast. It was still a great time looking at things in new places.
I was able to get around to three DSW stores in the area I was staying at.

I found many
shoes I would have liked to have but as usual, not in my size. I came across
these Jessica Simpson’s that were calling out to me. I recognized them but
could not put my finger on it. I thought “I have a certificate that will
bring the price to about half, so why not..?” The grey color is
fascinating, mixed with a black heel and platform and a tinge of Maroon accent.

What a combination. Once I returned to my hotel and tried them on, took
pictures I remembered why these look familiar. I have them in another color. A
beige with white heels and platform and a red accent. I will mention I found a
few other shoes I liked in my size but being the way it is to get through security
at the airport, I did not want to over stretch myself for checking Β in bags, so I limited myself to one purchase.
I did however get four more pairs on-line. The advantage for me buying on-line
is the available size 12. It is not as much fun as going to the store, but I
got to do what I got to do for the shoes to fit.

The black
Jessica Simpson wood heel sandals are fantastic. They only had the color black
in my size, but the brown ones were my favorite. I keep my fingers crossed to
see them available.

Bronze Kelly
& Katie cork wedge sandals are very comfortable. I was able to get these in
a size 12. Very well padded insole covered in suede. If I recall, these were
very inexpensive. Thus the reason I got them. Not sure I will be wearing these
out much if at all, but if I can I will. I do like the look and feel, I am just
not sure on how to wear them.

Patent black
open toe sling backs with a wood heel and sole by Dereon have a vibrant gold
chain on the vamp. These were the last ones and I may have mentioned this before,
I love wood heels. If I am being honest with myself, these are a little short
for my foot, but I do not see myself returning them. They are absolutely stunning!!!
I am hoping to go to dinner tonight in them.

Simpson Leopard print round toe pumps. What a fantastic fit. I may have some
trouble with my left foot flipping out while walking so a size 11W would be the
best for these rather than the size 12W I have. No matter, I can were socks
with these. if I need to.

I will take
this opportunity to thank all of the people that gave me some answers to my
last post. I am keeping track of the requests and ideas for content as well as
the responses to my suggestions. I will get to them in time. An update on the
video topic; I am working on the best way to make this available. I do not hide
the fact I am a male who likes to wear high heels, but I am shy and this
identification can be harmful to my profession.

    • I agree. They are great. They are better than I thought they would be. I really liked the brown version and preferred them, but I have been thinking, Why not both!!? πŸ˜‰ Thank you for stopping by and the wonderful comment. Please come back often. πŸ˜‰

  1. OOoo I really like the first pair- peep toe is my thing these days! And I’ve been seeing leopard print everywhere lately in accessories- I love the idea of just adding a touch of leopard and these shoes work perfectly.

    • Thank you for stopping by and please return often. I appreciate you finding my choices appealing. I can say a lot of my heels are peep toes. Stay tuned for the next set of pictures. I found some fantastic peep toes in a leopard print. You will love them!!! πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for the complement. I agree the chain detail is fascinating. I think it gives them a tough look and the gold brightens it up. I have not had a chance to wear them out yet, but I am eager to do so. Please come back again. πŸ˜‰

      I think if my location was known by shoe lovers, I would be invaded… πŸ˜‰
      I have several Jessica Simpsons and hope to get them all on here, but I am sure I have photos of most of them in the My Pictures area. Feel free to view them there as well. I would love to hear more of your opinions.
