One of the items on my original 101 in 1,001 list is to buy a really nice pair of shoes. Without even trying, I found my newest favourite heels—I would go so far as to call them the best heels ever!
As a bonus, I found a pair of flats that were nearly as wonderful (though nothing could quite compare in my eyes).
Some context: I’ve got a plethora of joint issues, balance issues, etc. that make heels difficult more often than not. I’m essentially the most uncoordinated person to ever live and heels just accentuate the issue.
With these heels? No issue.
Now, I did find a similarly wonderful pair of heels once before in my life. In high school, I had a pair of character shoes purchased by the school musical department that was truly amazing. Not only could I walk in them, but I could dance in them! Truly a magnificent feat.
But, since I haven’t been in theatre for a few years now, investing in new character shoes doesn’t seem like the wisest choice (though I’ll admit, I’ve considered grabbing a pair solely for wearing as “normal” heels because they were so perfect!).
These heels are the closest I’ve come to that seemingly perfect pair in terms of comfort and compatibility with my lack of coordination. And, not only are they a normal pair of heels, but they are super cute! Dare I say I like them more than those mythic character shoes from all those years ago?
Yes, yes I dare. Since buying these shoes (and sharing this post), I’ve worn these shoes to quite a few events. I’ve danced in them, both at actual events and more casually in the living room. They’ve held up wonderfully and continue to be perfect.
Of course, they’ve stopped being sold since I purchased these, but I’ve tried to find some close dupes (linked at the end of the post!), but I can’t confirm that they’re as comfortable or functional.
Find an equally wonderful “best heels ever?” Let me know and I’ll include the link!
The World’s Best Pair of Heels:
I stumbled across these shoes at Debenham’s while shopping for an event with some friends. It was love at first sight.
The thick heels make these super easy to walk in, while the laces make them stay on without effort (plus, it’s super fashionable!). The fuzzy exterior makes me absurdly giddy each time I put them on.
They match pretty much everything. I’ve worn them with the joggers pictured, with jeans, with a dress or skirt…. They can really do no wrong!
At the same time, I bought a pair of flats in a similar lace-up style. Even better? They cost me three pounds. One. Two. Three. That’s all. You can’t beat that! They weren’t as comfortable as these magical heels, though. Still, I wore them for several months until they wore out!
Needless to say, I’ve definitely jumped on the bandwagon when it comes to lace-up shoes. I get a bit giddy when I find a new pair (though I’m pretty good about not purchasing every pair I find!).
Unfortunately, neither pair is available online through Debenham’s. But never fear! I’ve found some similar pairs if you’d like to snag some of your own.
