shoe surprise

hi, my name is kendall, and i am a shoe snob.

yes, the higher-end shoes are better quality, and are an investment…but that’s not even really why i feel that my money is spent better on higher-end shoes: cheaper shoes do not have the “art” aesthetic that i find so appealing in the better shoe brands.

i digress, as i have just been proven wrong in my last statement. as i was going into a post-market party a few weeks ago, i complemented a woman on her amazing espadrilles–“i just got them at nine west”. shocked, i dragged myself into the store a week later and couldn’t believe how many cute shoes they had and fell in love with an additional pair. however, after flipping over the displays, i could not believe how expensive nine west had actually become–almost $100? i don’t think so.

as i was strolling down king street at the end of my work day on monday, i passed another nine west that had giant signs in the window: 50% off—done and done.

i purchased both shoes (sorry nick) for under $100 (and i had to go down a 1/2 size–always a bonus!)

don’t you see a YSL and Prada instead?!

*i apologize about my photgraphy–i brought my camera but no upload tool–so iphone it is.

  1. those are great! definitely don’t look like nine west.

    i’m with you on the pricing… if it’s not a designer brand i’m not paying more than like $75 for it. for example, j.crew and banana republic – why are their shoes so expensive? no thanks.
