    If I had that shoe I wouldn't wear it, I would hang it in a frame.....geeze. Imagine how much fabric you could buy instead of one pair of shoes!

    Absolutely beautiful. If I was 20 years younger, but they are too close to the ground to pay that much.

    They are gorgeous - but there's something about the descriptive word they use - "encrusted". Don't know why, but this word always seems 'unpleasant' to me.

    What would your poor feet be like in a few years after wearing something that high. Foot doctors are going to be making alot of money in years to come!!!

    I have to laugh. When I met my hubby he almost had a heart attack when he saw my clothes closet. I had about 75 pairs of high heels. Now we're downsizing and my new "sewing room" is about the size of a nice walk-in closet. He's almost hyperventilating seeing how much fabric I actually had in my old sewing room (it was about 12 x 16)

    I don't know about unpleasant, but it makes me think of fish!! As in pecan-encrusted, salt-encrusted...LOL.

    I like shoes as much as the next girl, but my willingness to drop many $$ has really decreased with my increased need for fabric!!
