The True Reason To Buy Designer Shoes

Happy Friday everyone.

I wanted to remind you about the NaraCamicie giveaway. I’ll be drawing the name of the winner end of day on Monday. The prize is a $175 gift certificate against any purchase from the store. Doesn’t just have to be my particular favorites:). So if you’re interested, comment here.

I also wanted to show you these.

Very, very special designer heel taps. They came with the new shoes. Kind of makes it all worthwhile, don’t you think?

Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Now those heel taps are something! I always take my new shoes to the cobbler to get plastic heel tips replaced with rubber (and you'd be surprised how many pricey shoes have plastic heels!).

  • in all seriousness, i'd love to have these-mean-business heel taps on hand. i mean, you've seen what i do to my shoes.

  • Completely makes it worthwhile – quality, quality, quality – ALL the way!! x

  • Yep, the heel taps definitely justify the purchase. As they say God is in the details, in life as in luxury brands.

  • You know your a redneck when you have no idea what a heel tap is. :)

  • whatever this is, it is splendid!
    are these reserves? or do you switch the heels?
    more information please :)

    can't stop looking at this picture, thank you LPC for posting this.

  • These are the little bitty things that go on the end of your high heel to keep it from getting worn down:). The shoes came with one pair installed. These are the extra taps – for when I have worn the first ones down what with all the skipping and jumping and sashaying I will be most certain be doing:).

  • Have a great time in NYC! And, yes, the heel taps are great. I have a friend with a high school fashionista daughter who says that some girls are having their shoes re-soled in red leather! Crazy!

  • There is nothing like the feel of an extremely well made shoe. And the fact that they make you feel extremely good…..

  • I love it when an extra set is included, but I've never actually needed to use them! My toes seem to show wear before the heel.

  • Hm, heel taps…I didn't know that was what they were called…I got a spare pair with some leather shoes from Spain…they were known as my witch shoes because the toes were seriously pointed! Like winkle pickers I suppose…and those shoes were around $200 maybe 4 years ago.
    I am guessing that you won't need these for a few years!
    Just for fun, how about sending us some pics of your well shod feet in various places in NY!

  • Hi LPC,

    Love those Louboutins. They are seriously beautiful. I thought about you today while I was at work. I usually wear flats as I'm on my feet all day long, but today I wore a kitten heel, about 1 1/2". After 4 hours my feet were KILLING me! I don't think I could make it very far in those heels. But I would look good sitting in them.


  • LPC,
    Thank you for naming heel taps for me.

    I never know what to call them.

    I have resolved to only buy quality shoes from now on. Less pairs but more longevity per pair.

  • I've got them with my CL's but Cole Haan also includes them with their Nike Air heels (the ones Angelina Jolie wore when preggers with the twins). As an aside, I had a pair or two BEFORE Ms Jolie chose them as her "confinement" shoes of choice.

  • This post so makes me want to run out to buy shoes I can't afford right now.

    Why, oh why, did I spend my last shoe money on a pair of impractical, Marc Jacobs clogs in two sizes two big, because of a stress-induced impulse buy?

    (Speaking of which, anyone out there want a pair of US size 7 yellow MJ yellow clogs?)

  • Heels taps? Right over my pedestrian head…XXOO
