Can we please have a shoe thread? Post links, reviews, sizing questions, etc.I'm trying to find some good flat shoes for lolita that are comfortable to walk around in all day. Other than tea parties and ballet flats, does anybody have any suggestions? I plan to mostly wear toned down sweet lolita so I'd like to find some cute shoes in pink, white or purple. Thank you in advance for your help!
Anything with low wedges will be comfortable long long periods of time. The best thing I can recommend is breaking the shoes in well beforehand and gel insoles. Sweet, sweet gel insoles.
I will never find VW Anglomania 3 strap heels in gold. Ever.But man I wish I would!I also need comfy shoes, and good ones for more classic and elegant coords. Sometimes Mojo Moxy and Irregular Choice has something good...but it's been a while since I looked.Also, gel insoles will definitely save your feet.
>>7799920>>flat shoes other than tea parties and ballet flatsvibram makes some great flat shoes that look great with sweet
>>7799951Don't give up hope, anon! I found mine on eBay after looking for about a year. If you download the eBay app on your phone you can track specific search terms so that you'll know whenever the shoes come up for sale in your size.

>>7799920looking for a flat shoe (no heel please) with size 11. Anyone have any sellers anywhere for that?
>>7800043>Blue Lacey Sneakerssize translation to US? I tried looking it up already
>>7800159Do you mean size 10.5 or 12? None of my shoe size charts/converters account for size 11. What's your Japanese shoe size?
>>7799951Set up a search like "vivienne Westwood gold [shoe size]) on ebay, so that it emails you every time there's a new listing that fits the search.It may take a while, but slow and steady wins the race.
>>7799997Any pics of these worn?
>>7800166I.. I don't know.. I guess my foot is closer to 12 than 10. so size 11(or 12) = ? in japanese?
Where do you guys usually go in terms of boots? I really want a cute flat pair of boots and was considering some engineer boots.
Anyone have any idea how to pierce a hole in a strap of a pair of bodyline shoes without damaging them majorly?
SO, long story short, a week ago I ordered melissa ballet flats from the melissa shop and I received an email saying they are in fact out of stock - a week after I ordered them.This leaves me with exactly a week to get a pair of shoes for a big event.Ladies, any ideas on what shoes I should go with?? Any place that ships super quickly? Pic very much related. I wear size 7.5 us or 23.5/24Im sorry if this post doesn't belong here, but I figured I'd give it a go since this thread is dedicated to all shoes.
>>7800172Size 12 is a size 285 in Japan or Size 44 for Europe/Taobao.I searched Antaina for Size 44 in heels under 3cm. Go nuts.>http://antaina-nana.taobao.com/category-407160656.htm?spm=a1z10.5.w4002-6566327692.14.ObUhkj&mid=w-6566327692-0&search=y&parentCatId=407160655&parentCatName=%B5%A5%D0%AC&catName=%B5%CD%B8%FA%283CM%D2%D4%CF%C2%29&catId=407160656&csy=1&pv=20549:28393
>>7800184Amazon has tons of Melissa shoes that are Prime eligible.
>>7800193I looked through all the melissa shoes and nothing really matchesAt this point it doesnt have to be melissa so long as the shoes match. I would use a pair i owned but I think brown tea parties would be too much brown on the bottom and pic related would be too much red
>>7800250If you added a red hair/head accessory, the red shoes wouldn't be too much. Just switch out the bag for a light one.
>>7799997I have them in red; I say 4/5 comfortable, they hurt me a little on the back of my ankles(sorry for shitty english)
>>7799997I have these, they're pretty nice imo. I get lots of compliments, even by normies
>>7800184Where are those tights from?
>>7801020Sakizo tights. http://alice-books.com/item/show/596-29
>>7801024Thank you anon!
I got these bad boys a month or so ago. They're hell on your feet so get some insoles and they're near impossible to find apparently. I lucked out and got them at Shoe Show for under $15.>mfw it took 10 minutes just to find a picture
>>7801050Forgot the important detailsBrand: Hot TomatoColors: black / white
>>7801050>near impossible to findhttps://www.google.com/shopping/product/10409281345918975467They're not $15, but hey, if anyone needs a pair...
>>7801050I got the exact same shoes at a thrift store for $6. Love them.
>>7801050Those are cute. I found a pair of similar shoes at a thrift store(the heels are a little shorter thought) at a thrift shop. Paid like, $4 for them.Also recently got these at Ross.
>>7801061Oh yay! And I'm glad you found them. I've been googling the brand just trying to find a listing and couldn't find shit.
>>7801058so cute, but that arch would murder my feet
>>7801114They appear to be from a different brand which I just happened to be browsing a bit ago, so I still had a tab open with these shoes in "related". Kind of funny - I wonder what the difference between the brands are?
>>7801134I think Hot Tomato is more a budget brand so they're probably less comfortable. They're made well but there's absolutely no cushion in them and since they're a size larger than I wear that doesn't help much either.
This may seem like a stupid question, but I'm new to gel insoles, but is it necessary to go a size up if you want to use them? I'd like some for the shoes I already have, but if they will make my feet cramped I won't bother.
>>7800165How hard is it to google "Shoe Size Converter"? You're looking for US to Europe sizes.
Anywhere I can find shoes similar to Jane Marple's 3 strap Mary Janes? Price isn't an issue, just needs to fit a size 9/euro 40. I think chie mihara has some fantastic looking shoes. I also think some styles of Swedish hasbeens would look great with some otome outfits.
>>7800184fucking hell i ordered those toowhat size? 7 or 8?
>>7800180Use a needle to start, poke the hole, and then find something slightly bigger, poke it through (I'd usually use a ballpoint pen if the shoes are black) and then you should be able to fit the buckle.
Are there things to make the sides of your feet not have blisters/hurt?
Not lolita, but has anyone bought these platform t straps from ebay/ali and will they fall apart after 3 wears?
>>7800180heat up a thick needle/metal skewer over a gas flame, be gentle and slow.
>>7801778There are stick-on silicone strips you can stick onto trouble spots. I know because I saw them at Walmart for $3.50, and thought about putting them in a $9 pair of shoes from Target. I just donated the shows instead.
>>7801153Depends. If it's a full insole then you'll probably need a half size for wiggle room. If you're just adding arch support, you don't have to worry about that making the shoe tighter, generally.
>>7799997As someone who struggles with weak ankles, I ran around the whole Saturday of a con in these and was fine. and they are cute as fuck. I'v actually been thinking about buying them in a second color
>>7801767Nope, theyre all out of stock. I emailed again after asking if they had size 8 (I had ordered the 7) and they said theyre all out of stock.
>>7802175aw shitwell thanks for warning me at least anoni ordered the size 7 and it was like 1 or two cm too tight but ill try the hair dryer method and see if that worksthey hurt as-is but at this point im grateful for a pair at all
>>7802512If you decide not to keep them, would you sell them to me? I doubt I'll have them in time for the event anywhere I look but theyve been on my wishlist for a while too Sigh.dropped email above if you ever do
Should I get Fluevogs Caravaggios in Burgundy or Black? Black is obviously going to be a shit ton more versatile, but the burgundy is seriously gorgeous.
>>7802512Hey, I actually just called up the NY store and they have them in stock, I'll likely be going tomorrow. Would you like the size 8 pair? I could SS for you if youd like, lemme know!>>7802667Look at your wardrobe/ what you plan on buying and also at the shoes you own - do you already own a nice pair of black shoes? If so maybe the burgundy would be best. It all depends,
>>7802667I bought both, but unless you have a lot of bordeaux in your closet, i would go with black.
found these in a local store today and somehow fell a bit in love...
>>7802689no thats okim doing the hairdryer thing right now and it seems to be working but thanks!
>>7802667In real life, I much prefer the black. The burgundy has this weird rough texture/look to the leather, kind of like it was sanded almost? It's not like a normal smooth leather. I really disliked it so I went with black.
>>7800184Too bad you need white. They have em in black on Nordstrom
>>7800184Lucky you, those ballet flats are tacky as fuck.
What's the size conversion from 225 to US?I wanted to buy shoes from bodyline but I didn't see a sizing chart for their shoes.Also, I'm a size 4.5 (womens), and I've considered just getting kids shoes and painting them with leather paint. What's a good way to go about decorating? if I can find shoes in my size that are good for sweet I wouldn't bother with this tbh.
>>7802714They're so tacky that they're beautiful.
>>7799997I guess my feet are fat and disgusting, I have them in brown, love them, but the strap across hurts like a bitch. They're loose everywhere else except that fucking strap, too.
>>7799951Are you looking for the heeled version, or the ballet flats?A US size 10 of the VW three-strap FLAT in gold is on ebay now (seller is in the US)http://m.ebay.com/itm?itemId=221541784961
>>7803620225 = 225mm = 22.5cmI wouldn't trust Bodyline's size conversion. Just measure yo feets.
Can someone dump some links to cheap shoes in US10/42/26cm? I'm talking aliexpress/ebay cheap. My giant clown feet need kawaii shoes.
>>7800184UK stockist nonnon has them on sale. They state shipping takes 2-3 days from dispatchhttp://www.nonnon.co.uk/women/ballet-nude.html
>>7799951>>7804317Durr, sorry for posting that ebay link and getting your hopes up. Your post clearly said "heels". Sorry.Anybody else who's interested in it, have a go. I would buy them if my skin didn't look do bad with gold.
>>7804461*so bad, not do badI am not with it this morning, clearly
>>7801778wear a pair of nylon peds for a little extra cushion.
>>7803612only on /cgl/
>>7800165Here's a link to ebay with US sizes. Didn't look at first link so I don't know how the prices match up.http://www.ebay.ca/itm/271473558196?var=570319985499&ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649
>>7804722I got super sad because my bf gave me those and everyone said they were ugly as shit.well, fuck it I'm wearing them anyway
>>7804848h.. holy shit those are hideous.
>>7804760they're not though? I get compliments on those babies daily even when i dont wear jfashioni'm not about to take shoe advice from a community that worships tea parties
Ok how fixI bought them with that small scuff for $5 and it kind of got worse due to me being clumsy. I'm not trying to resell them or anything, I just want it to look less terrible. Should I try a clorox wipe for the black scuffs then a little red paint on the totally dead parts?
>>7803595>>7804358Thanks for the heads up, but i went to NYC today and got them there. The store was super beautiful too!>>7803612See pic related.They are cute and if you dont like your pair you can send them my way. Thanks! :-)>>7804906/thread
>>7805155(Diff anon) It was actually seeing them in person at the NYC store that turned me off of them, I thought the glitter, treads and chunkiness looked tacky as hell in person.
>>7805129Rubbing alcohol and use red nail polish/paint and thin gloss coat.
>>7804906Nice butthurt. The shoes are still ugly.
>>7806447Thanks anon!Kind of lumpy, but I'm cool with it.
>>7806438>glitterThey don't have glitter. Do you mean the pearly sheen?>treadsYou mean the tip part that indicates the bunched fabric gathering on pointe shoes? I own pointe shoes, and its emulating that.>chunkinessbruh, you sure we're talking about the same shoe?kek
>>7801145Hey anon, I'm the one who linked to the Mojo Moxy version of the shoe you got. I stopped by Shoe Show the other day and actually got the same shoes as you for $11! Shoe twins, haha. Damn they are uncomfortable though.
>>7807222These ballarina shoes are super pretty, I have them in yellow
>>7807222Pretty sure anon is talking about the gold version of the Ballet IV. Pic related, ugly as sin. The other ones in this release are not glittery though.
>>7807222Chunk is on the heeled version, pic related>>7807263YesThe entire style family is pretty fug.
>>7807322The flats and the heels look totally different.I think the heels are gross, and so are the glitter ones (ew, never seen those till now)Anon how about we agree to acknowledge that we have different opinions and that you just have bad taste?Polite sage for this nonsense.
>>7807248I actually just spotted them in a shoe store in the mall as well for that price. Now you know my suffering, anon. Get a really good pair of cushioned insoles.
>>7805129>>7806731It looked painful. Good thing you could restore it
>>7807322I really like my pair! I get a lot of compliments from strangers
>>7807819>>7807322I dunno, ballet is supposed to be delicate and graceful. Those look obnoxious and clunky to me.
I was thinking about ordering a pair of shoes from Dear Lenore, but I've read so many bad reviews I'm afraid to now. I hear it's mostly because they're very slow, which is a problem considering I need a pair of white heels by the end of the month. It's hard to find heels that aren't that chunky block heel, I think they look kind of tacky. Any suggestions on where to look?
>>7805129>>7806447>>7806731good save anon! im gonna tell my friend to do this bcs oh boy are her bl boots fucked up man>>7807819those are cute! clunky, but cute. i dont think i like the tips though.
>>7800039Those are hideous.
>>7807819Are they confortable?
>>7807819Those look really uncomfortable, but they are cute!
Is there anything I can do about these shoes? They actually fit pretty well, but the problem is that the edge/opening is really wide, so it gaps when I stand. Is there anything to do about this?
>>7806731Wow that actually looks pretty good anon, well done!
Thinking about buying these shoes for navy coords. Do you think they'd work or are they too blue and not dark enough?
>>7808829Sauce anon? I need some blue shoes too.
>>7808830Not that anon but I'm pretty sure modcloth.
>>7808829If you go through the customer reviews, customers usually show pics.
>>7808830Modcloth!>>7808842Yeah I looked but IDK if you all think they'd go with navy.
>>7807819I love them and am totally gonna get a pair.
>>7808199>>7808576They're really comfortable! I had to go down a size because they were 1 cm too big. I normally wear a US size 6 and had exchange them for a size 5.>>7808863You'll love them!
>>7808862I don't think they are that dark. They look pretty bright.From this customer picture, the shoes look bright. I have the dress that's pictured and that dress is a very, very dark blue. The shoes contrast quite a lot.If you also look at the pic by reviewer Colleen, you can see how the laces and shoe contrast quite a lot. I don't think this will match that many navy coords unless you have various shades of blue.
>>7808829>>7808892Then I'd love a link to comfortable and attractive navy shoes that would fit a classic coord since these are too royal blue.
>>7808829>>7808892Yikes thats a huge fucking difference
>>7807819You guys are killing me here, I've bought SO many shoes lately but I need these.And if anyone snarks "no you don't NEED those you need air" I will fucking smack you through the Internet swear to god.
>>7808902I bought from antaina, but if you have money get fluevogs
Are ankle boots like these acceptable in gothic?I have these and a pair of bodyline pumps, but these are much more comfortable so I'd rather wear them for meets that need walking.
>>7809211Maybe for a casual coordinate.
>>7808033Ballet is delicate,but pointe shoes look clunky as fuck when you're not on pointeidk why you make a collection modeling pointe shoes, but it would definitely not be a delicate or graceful one
>>7808902Chelsea Crew makes shoes in a nice medium blue color sometimes that's between royal and navy. I don't know if they have any styles right now though.>>7809211Yes however the ones you have pictured are too utilitarian looking, imo. If you're going to buy booties for lolita, they should have some kind of details that make them more edgy or elegant.
Opinions on these as navy classic shoes?
>>7809253I've seen these IRL and imo the color is lovely, but the ventilated material and the shape overall make them look sort of bowling or golf shoe-ish and not very flattering for lolita. A bit too old looking or only for "faux retro" outfits. They have better shoes with T-straps or ankle straps that are much more flattering.
>>7809259At this point I'm desperate for comfortable navy shoes that would work with lolita under $150 and don't come from taobao. If there are better ones please link!
>>7808583Nobody will actually notice that, and they'll see a different angle anyway so it's doubtful it will be noticeable.
>>7809268What about these?http://www.modcloth.com/shop/shoes-heels/dynamic-debut-heel-in-navy
>>7809293I was hoping for a more oxford shape shoe with inclosed sides. Not a big fan of any of the blue shoes I've seen on modcloth except the too-blue ones I posted earlier
^I'm down with Mary Janes too
I'm planning on buying these shoes ( in black) to wear with my more 'fancy' outfits for special occasions, I've been told the sizing chart on them is a bit random.I'm a UK size 4-5 so does anyone have any idea what I should go for?http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-Womens-Pumps-Platform-Thick-Heels-14cm-Cross-Strap-Women-Shoes-Fashion-Sexy-High-heels/1805209330.html
>>7809322If it helps, I've noticed that when I get heels from China, I need to order a Chinese size 36. Also, I'm a UK size 4.5 which makes me a Chinese size 38, which I use when buying flats.
>>7809307>>7809293I want to kiss aliexpress' ass. I found the perfect shoes in both colors I wanted.My body is ready for those navy oxfords
>>7809357Sorry to be that annoying anon, but link? Those are gorgeous!
I really need a couple new striking pairs of light colored shoes, cream preferred. For classic lolita. I'd like to spend under $50 but I can go up to $100 if they're really nice.
>>7809379http://www.modcloth.com/shop/shoes-heels/drama-director-heel-in-taupehttp://www.modcloth.com/shop/shoes-heels/drama-director-heel-in-taupeThese two from modcloth are pretty cute.
>>7809268http://www.clarks.co.uk/p/20358079I have these. They're great.
>>7805129Go to a shoe repair shop and ask questions, wear the shoes or bring them with you at least. I go to my guy for everything and he's really nice about do it yourself advice.
>>7807819Curses on you anon, I wanted to take a break from draining my bank account. They look really great.
I have a paif of bodyline heeled shoes that are a bit large on the back, i cannot pick a size smaller because my big toe is huge.These gel grip thingies could work?
>>7811594You can add a piece of gel heel grips. They should be enough to help cushion your heel and make them fit better.
Adding to my Melissa collection!! I have 6 pairs already and I lovee them.
>>7812546I have the Lady Dragon in blackXgold, favourite shoes !
I don't understand why lolitas love Melissa shoes so much, they look so fuckig cheap and tacky.
>>7812555They're my first pair!! I've been wanting them for so long haha Id love to see a picture of your shoes
>>7812577Because they paired up with VW that one time.
>>7812588>>7812577Because they manufacture most VW shoes.
>>7812577Well I had several Melissa shoes before getting into lolita sooo.... Plus they're comfortable and easy to clean.The only pair that most lolitas want are the triple strap anglomania heels, gold being the most popular (gold shoes are now a hit regardless of the brand). I've seen maybe the triple strap flats being worn, but they were reminiscent of those bordello boots that were popular way back when.
>>7807819reminds me of the posters I used to use for my human trafficking awareness project.
I'm preparing a Sailor Moon-inspired gyaru coord, and I need pink shoes to match pic related and the hair bow I'm wearing. Ideas?
Ordered these shoes finally They sold them at Kohls so I did a couple coupons and got them for $33 (plus a pair of earrings to set the coupons overboard). I'm so pumped
> tfw I spotted these shoes going for 2/3 of what I paid for I like how they look and they're pretty comfy. This is coming from someone with flat feet who's very picking with shoes. > also sorry for my terrible bow-tying skills
>>7813120> picking with shoes Picky. I meant picky.
I have nothing to wear this with but I want them because they're so ridiculously absurd and cute at the same time.
>>7813381Sauce on them please?
>>7813381fuck those are cute.>>7813400they came up here when I reverse image searchedhttp://www.stylife.co.jp/stylife/item/A01725?l-id=top_mid_ranking_ranking-mid
>>7813400Oops, should've included it in the initial post. Here you go:http://store.honey-salon.com/itemFHS-0270/
>>7799997I love these but had to order them half a size up to fit comfortably. I bought brown and black then bought black again after the first pair wore out from wearing them every day for 6 months to work.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me how the Melissa x vw anglomania 3 strap heels fit? Thanks.
Just ordered these to go with my ouji and visual kei coords. So excited~!
>>7813626They're totally true to size for me. The flats, however, run about a half size big.
>>7813868you can't just post something that cool without a source, anon
/r/ing where I can get shoes like this for cheap? They are from a Japanese online store, but I can't afford their original price plus the cost of an SS and shipping...>Original: http://www.cecile.co.jp/detail/RT-107/?micd=00705&appno=117452&miseq=61&ordno=3179
>>7815225Also these! Its really hard to find cute, round toes pumps in a color other than black and with a thick heel in America. Its nothing but stilettos and pumps.>Original: http://www.cecile.co.jp/detail/RT-61/?micd=00705&appno=117487&ordno=0073
>>7815202Queen Bee on Rakuten ;)
>>7812751Just want to add to this, I found a color different than black and grey. Still really want brown to come back tho.I've only seen this color so far here.http://www.6pm.com/dolce-by-mojo-moxy-victoria-nude
>Decide to browse modcloth>Find Irregular choice.My god, this company has some amazing shoes. If I'm gonna drop $150 on shoes, I better have some damn interesting looking shoes.
>>7816486IC is amazing and the shoes are even more beautiful IRL, but I'd just advise from personal experience, their shoes aren't very comfortable at all. Their slightly lower end subbrand is Poetic License which you can buy from more places, like I think even Macy's carries them sometimes?
>>7816495Yeah. I figure it's one of those cases you're going to be uncomfy as fuck but have some amazing looking shoes.They seem like shoes to be worn for photoshoots or very short periods of time. I do want the Rabbit shoes for my Alice JSK though.
>>7816502Yeah, pretty much! I have one pair I absolutely love to death but I was in so much arch and toe pain from just walking down the street in them that I'm afraid to wear them again... and I went through a lot of trouble to hunt them down, so I'm very reluctant to give up on them. Definitely put some insoles in or only wear for a photoshoot! The construction is great though.
>>7816486Just plan to have extra space/go a size up for full gel insoles
I'm looking for a new pair of everyday shoes. The ones I usually wear have about a three inch heel- very easy to walk in. I love the ones on the left, they look so...school-ish? I dont knowBut the ones on the other side are gorgeous as well. I cant decide between them. What do you think, /cgl/?
>>7817716do you have a link to both pairs?
>>7817734yes! I was actually wondering if anyone had a cheaper version of leftie. Its not expensive or anything, but if I could get them cheaper I'd like it. If not, thats fine.

>>7817716Definitely the right.
>>7817716I think these look cheap and won't hold up to everyday wear. You want to invest in a good pair of everyday shoes, unless you don't mind constantly replacing them. The ones on the right are cuter, but they aren't practical if you're going to wear them all the time.
>>7817767Mm, you're probably right. My last pair I got at a thriftstore for 7$, and I've had them maybe two years? But who knows what brand they came fromI think I'm safer going for the ones on the left, unless I find a better pair.They would match my outfits better, I think. Thanks for all the help, gulls
Can anyone find the shoes in this coord? I've been lusting after them for months...
Anyone have any experience with Charm Shoes on Amazon? I just came across them and they look to sell the same sorts of shoes as taobao, aliexpress, and lovely shoes, and the prices seem fairly comparable.I have some amazon gift cards and I'm considering the shoes pictured.

How are Liz Lisa heels? I may be getting a pair but worried that they will be uncomfortable.
>>7818557they're really comfortable! i have a few pairs of their wedges and pumps and they're great
>>7817846These are adorbs.>http://www.amazon.com/Charm-Foot-Rabbit-Womens-Casual/dp/B00EX0B6OM/ref=sr_1_194?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1410678386&sr=1-194

>>7818563Did you find them true to size?
>>7818557Liz lisa shoes are terrible . Theyre uncomfortable. I have a pair of theirbooties
>>7818582yeah the pairs that i own are, but my friend said their boots can run a little small but ive never had a pair personally
Can I have some fitting advice? I'm so confused about shoes and I generally wear a 24.5 in japanese sizes, but my sizes on this size chart for a pair of shoes I'm after show a different size. I'm so confuu, can anyone advise?
>>7818626thanks, I'll go order some then!
>tfw I finally found a pair of VW x Melissa 3 strap flats in my size on ebay in the color I wantedFINALLY
>>7821737I totally feel you>just bought pick related
>>7821737I totally feel you>just bought pic related
>>7821991wtf I just did the same, party timeee
>>7821737>>7821991>>7822233Party time!!!!I'm hoping they fit, but if they don't I'm sure they'll be easy to get rid of.
>>7821991I have a pair of the pink ones. They're absolutely perfect. Enjoy your great shoes, Anon!
>>7815225Search for "oxford pump" or "oxford heel" on Amazon. You're not going to get that exact two-color pattern, but you can get close.
Any links to shoes similar to these? Everything I find looks cheap or they're peep toe heels.
>>7821991I pretty much want to own these in every colour. I have these in gold and beige but I kinda feel like I need the black one too.
>>7819943Did you measure your foot properly? You need to stand on a hard surface, trace around your foot on paper whilst standing and measure heel to toe...
>>7821991Congratulations anon! Where to cop?
>>7822286Oh god, the pink are super tempting even though they won't match a lot of my stuff.And thank you!>>7822647What are the beige ones like?I see a lot of pics of the gold, but hardly any of the beige.>>7822672They're the Melissa x Vivienne Westwood Anglomania 3 Strap heels. They're an older release so I got these second hand from ebay. They weren't listed very well so I only found them by chance.
>>7822321naturalizer (I think it was naturalizer? one of the comfort shoe brands) has a two-tone oxford right now, but it has a rather low heel and looks pretty old lady shoe compared to OP's pic.>>7822647Same, I have gold and would really like to get black and pearl/ivory eventually. They're just soooo comfy!
>>7799970Would look good with some good silk ribbon tied around the ankles/legs>>7799997Absolutely not!They were perfect in length, but so fucking wide! And my feet ARE wide.>>7800012I love these to bits, especially in the white + colour combos, they look like sponge cakes.
>>7805129completely smother them swarvoski
>>7806731>left shoe, toe bitYou missed a spot!Otherwise, I'm impressed... I need to try this now.>>7807819Fuck complimenting the shoes, what about your legs
>>7817716I tried some cheap shoes for "everyday" where, but they ached my feet rare before they fell apart.
>>7822233>>7821991>>7821737As did I, whaddaya know. (I got the heels version in burgandy leather)>>7822286The ones with the bows are so cute, I'd get these too if I saw them.
>>7822286I have these, too! Do you have any tips or suggestions for legwear to make it "match better" with pink pieces? I've found that it's slightly-lavender tint makes it look weird next to normal pinks, and absolutely impossible to wear with peaches.
So I lost the link to this site, but I believe it was EU (prices in Euros I think) and it sold secret shop shoes. I think it had a pink background but nothing I search brings it up. I remember someone posting in one of the FB sales groups looking for the ETC gold shoe replicas and someone linked this site that had all the secret shop models available, does anyone know which site I'm talking about?Have been looking through the sales groups for the post and googling dozens of different keywords to try and pull it up. They had tps, the etc knock offs, the ap engi boots, the VM short boots, etc. Was not clobba, this place wasn't based in US.
>>7807819Does anyone have the source on these shoes? They're similar to >>7807819 but seem more structured and made out of better materials.
>>7824670They look cheaper to me.
>>7824670They look like replicas made out of cardboard.
>>7824670I can understand that some people don't like the material of >>7807819, but those look really cheap!I couldn't find them, I'm sorry, but there seem to be nice ones from Alexander McQueen and Dior.
>>7822692Sorry, by beige I meant "nude". I got these on sale which added to my excitement about finding them. My skin tone is yellow + medium light for reference.
>>7824721They're cute!We have a similar skin tone by the sounds of it.
>>7824721They look super cute in nude, I sorta regret buying the black. Though my skintone is asian/medium...
>>7824753Well black is the safest option! At least you know it won't be too hard to match. I contemplated red but it doesn't go with much of my wardrobe. I'm Asian as well and what sold me on nude was when I saw some trendy-looking Korean chicks work them, haha.
>>7824757Ugh, the red are to die for, but yes they'd only match two outfits of mine! My friend has them, so gorgeous. I am after a lighter pair of heels, either ivory or cream, but maybe nude is a good option too?
>>7824331I usually try to stay with whites, creams and even just cute ankle socks with the lace frill. I try to keep it simple because kinda have the same problem but damn are these shoes cute.
>>7822286They look so cheap though. Like Barbie shoes. I don't understand why you'd want shoes that look like they're made of straight up plastic.
>>7824774That's both part of it and not part of it.They do look a bit plastic and a bit like jelly. It's kind of cool to have shoes that are a bit see-through, or that aren't made of conventional materials like normal canvas or leather. And yes, they do look a bit like Barbie shoes, and Barbie was a style icon. They're fun, they're not meant to be high end hand crafted heritage leather shoes to begin with, just fun shoes.At the same time, for "plastic shoes", I really haven't found any other brand that is Melissa's equivalent. Other el cheapo jelly/plastic shoes tend to have shiny plastic and have ridges in weird places where the molds come together. Melissa is the one brand that consistently does GOOD plastic shoes.I guess if you aren't into the plastic/jelly shoes look then it all looks the same to you, just take our word for it, the quality is definitely there.
>>7824774They're so nice in person though. They don't look really plastically, almost rubbery and they smell like bubblegum. Not to mention incredibly cute.
>>7824784Jellies look like shit 100% of the time on grown adults.They're cute on a 4-year-old.
is $50 a good price for brand new Liz Lisa wedges?
Ok, I'm in a bit of a pinch. I need a pair of gold shoes in size 9/25.5/40 that will get to the usa before October 1st?Or ivory. Trying to get something that will go with twinkle carnival, pic related.
>>7824784I absolutely hate jelly shoes but love Melissa's plastic shoes. There's a clear difference in quality and style, imo.
>>7824865Yes.That is the whole point.Melissa shoes DON'T look like shit on grown adults.Every OTHER jelly shoes do.
>>7824721These are adorable! I'm so jealous!
>>7824769Thank you! Time to invest in such tights, then. Yes, they are so cute.
Melissa! That's the brand name! I found an adorable pair of navy blue flats with a bubblegum pink bow a long time ago and I can't find it anymore. Not even on Google. They looked like pic related except with a pink bow. Anyone have any keywords I can use or have an idea where I can find them?
>>7826733Looks like one of the ultragirl series. There's a lot of variation on Ultragirl, though, I can't keep up with how many they've done.Sort of off tangent. I love the quality of Melissa shoes, but they really need to make some shoes that aren't high heel ankle-killers or stubby flats. The only kitten heels I've come across are the Karl Lagerfeld shoes and I already bought those (and they're wonderful, but so pointy)
>>7826867Thereis the melissa mermaid, pic related
Has anyone bought JetJ shoes before? I want to buy these in black, but I'm usually a size M and there's only size L in stock, so I'm hoping to hear that they run small.
>>7829089I need these shoes in my life
>>7824875Anyone? I need to decide before someone else buys them!
Does anyone have experience with these or pictures of them worn? I've searched high and low but pretty much can't find anything about CP that isn't about their petticoats.
>>7833289Just look at their online store to see what similar shoes run for new... It's not that hard
>>7824875>>7833289I don't get it. What's so unusual about your 50USD Liz Lisa shoes that you have to ask us whether it's a good price instead of comparing to the brand new shoes from the shop?Liz Lisa shoes category:http://www.tokyokawaiilife.jp/shop/liz-lisa/item/list/category_id/25
>>7815225BAIT footwear has released oxfords like those, dunno about quality but they seem nicePic related
>>7833678I've only seen them worn rather than owning them and they look nice, the girl wearing didn't say much about them otherwise though
Any experience ordeing shoes from Dress Lily?
>>7807819CURSE my big feet! I wear a US11.5 and Melissa only carrys until size US10. I've tried them on... I can manage to squeeze my foot into them, but there's no way I can wear them for real. But I did take picrelated, those were the happiest 10 seconds of y life wearing them.>mfw I have such big feet I've worn ugly shoes my whole bloody life
>>7839947Has anybody actually tried shoe stretching to trying to up the size a bit on shoes? I think it works depending on the shoe material.Also I was passing by a Clarks shop in the mall the other day and noticed some really cute shoes in their window display. From what I can tell looking at their website, their Ciera line would work nicely with classic and goes up to at least a size 12.From reading reviews, their shoes are suppose to be pretty damn comfy. If they're that comfortable and last nicely, might be worth the 100+ pricetag.
>>7818557Honestly it depends. Which ones are you thinking of? I have a pair of boots in size L which fit perfectly and are so comfortable could wear all day, but bought a new pair recently also in L that are a little tight and not so bad after a few hours, but painful after walking all day.
>>7799920where can i get the shoes in your picture? i love them!
>>7833184No they run pretty true to their L and M sizes in my experience.
>>7807819is it weird of me to think your legs are beautiful? n-no homo....
>>7839976Clark's is spectacular for comfort and the quality lasts. I've had a pair of ankle boots from them for years and have worn them frequently/long stretches quite comfortably.
>>7833184They're just normal pumps with some feathers and ribbon on the back. Buy a regular cheap pair that fit you, and get your glue gun out
>>7839976Oh yes, I do it all the time (same anon you replied to). It does, in deed, depend on the material. Real leather stretches very good, fabric not so much. PU leather is nearly impossible to stretch. In the case of these melissas there is nothign to stretch as it's plastic. Thank you for sharing those shoes! Sadly I live nowhere close to the US, and each time I try to purchase shoes from USA or Europe, the shipping costs are ridiculous. Payless won't ship to my country, they do have stores here but they only carry shoes up to size 11 and refuse to order some in size 12 extra for me, even if I pay in advance (bloody bastards). I think I'm pretty fucked. I'm buying shoes fromChina now. It's risky, because in many cases the fit tsn't right either and they may be poorly made, but it's my only way to find pretty shoes.
I bought shoes kinda like RHS without straps. Unfortunately they are kind of too big for me, and this kind of insoles are doing nothing. I thought about getting the silicone insoles which you put inside the shoe to help the feet stay in place, but I still don't know if they are going to hold clothed skin. Would sewing two straps in X shape help me with this problem?
>>7840969Full gel inserts and possibly some foam padding in the toe will help.
Just picked these up at Payless for $30
>>7841398Probably could have found the same thing at the thrift store for $8...
>>7841398You seriously paid that much for generic brogues?
>>7842486Honestly, I would rather have paid more at Clark's for a bit of quality at least...
>>7842311Been looking for ages, nothing has popped up. I couldn't even find any cheap ones on Taobao that I liked that would have been worth it. >>7842491I've had Payless sneakers last me like 6 years of constant abuse, I don't understand the vendetta against them TBH.>>7842486Not like they're anywhere else for significantly cheaper without being ugly or babby sized.
>>7833678I don't have these, but I do have a pair of CP boots and I like them. They are well made and comfy.
>>7839947>mfw I have such big feet I've worn ugly shoes my whole bloody lifeSame here! I'm a US size 12-13 (depending on the brand) and pretty much the only thing stopping me from getting into J-fashion is lack of cute shoes in big sizes. The shoes in >>7839976 are adorable and come in a 12, but I've never worn Clarks before so I'm not sure of their sizing, and even then I'm quite tall already so I'm not too keen on wearing anything that'll make me taller.The only site I can find that sells decent shoes for big feet is Barefoot Tess, but there don't seem to be many styles that catch my eye for the fashions I'm interested in (classic lolita and otome). If anyone has any links that'd be of use I'd appreciate it!
>>7839947>>7847356Pleaser subbrands? Bordello, demonia and funtasma appear to do large sizing
>>7808872Anon, if you're still around, and if it's not too much trouble, would you be willing to measure the insole of the ballet heels?
>>7847356yeah, why not Drag Queen shoes? do it>>7847787
Does anyone know where I can get funtasma shoes? I'm Aus based but happy to buy online internationally.
do you know where can I get vivienne shoes? do they still sell the winged and heart shaped ones?I feel insecure about buying them online since tehy cost a fortune and I don't want to end up in fake shoes.
>>7852604Do you mean like the ones in OP's pic? Those can be found on the Melissa site. Idk where to get them in person, though. Hopefully someone else is more helpful
Anywhere I can get a wide variety of lolita/alt fashion shoes in size 12 besides an tai na? I hate having huge feet, its the bane of my existence.
>>7813120Not even joking when I say I'm going to track down these shoes and buy a pair of black slouchy socks just so I can also have this look. 10/10, anon
>>7852640Not specifically lolita but if you wear gothic than pleaser and the sub brands will cater for you. Otherwise some secret shop shoes and bodyline shoes should fit. Oh also possibly Irregular choice.
