Shoe Porn Monday – A librarian who (really) loves shoes

February 8, 2010

L-A: Another Monday is here and that means it’s time for shoes! Yay! Today’s collection come from Melanie. The name of her blog “…a librarian with nice shoes” makes her the perfect candidate for submitting a shoe porn collection. In her email, she writes:

I love shoes. Sometimes I tend to be a little more about quantity rather than quality.  I buy a lot of my shoes at payless, some at walmart, and a lot are second hand through value village.  I have small feet (5 – 5 1/2) so sometimes it’s a challenge to find shoes.

I think she has the opposite feet of mine (I’m solidly a size ten…until recently. I suspect vanity sizing may be creeping into the world of shoes. If this is the case, it needs to stop. I like that my shoes are the one size that never changes). So while she has trouble finding small shoes, I’m looking longingly at the smaller shoes and thinking how much cuter they are when they aren’t the size of small boats and come with oars.

Anythewho, enough about my feet. Let’s look at Melanie’s shoes!

Overall, a solid collection.  I’m completely jealous of the Sorel boots.  I was going to complain about not having a sister who can give me shoes, but then I remembered that my brother did once buy me a pair of awesome sneakers that I had been coveting.  Although, with his size 27 feet (only slightly exaggerating) and tendency to wear only Chuck Taylor’s, he’s useless when it comes to buying shoes for himself and then letting me steal them. (note to brothers of both Ally and I: we do accept shoes as birthday and Christmas presents. In case you were wondering).

p.s. This week there might be a new Official Something thanks to my friend M.Dubs.  Hint: it starts with a “K”, ends in “araoke” and is awesome after you’ve had a bottle of wine.

    Awesome collection! I’m a very short girl myself also so finding shoes is hard. I should wear heels but I don’t really unless I know I’m not going to be walking or standing much. I have wierdly shaped feet that are wide at the front (around the toes) and narrow at the heel (like a duck)…plus I’m a 6.5 almost exactly but this is a tough size to find sometimes – usually have to go up to a 7 or down to a 6. So, in a nutshell, I don’t have happy feet very often lol
