The Gallery - Shoes

I have quite a few *cough* shoes. Heels mainly, lots of them. In fact, until I was pregnant with Mini Cheddar I didn't own a pair of flats apart from some flip flops for holiday.

Today it's a different story. I very rarely wear heels. Most of them are now in boxes collecting dust in the bottom of my wardrobe. I think something happened when I became a mother to trigger off a reaction to wearing heels. No longer can I spend hours drinking and dancing the night away...give me a pair of slippers and I'm happy.

I'm almost 37, not 77, I promise.

However, I do have one trusty pair of heels that will always be with me and always get an airing. A pair of Kurt Geiger peep-toes that have been with me for years. I love them, they are part of me.

My beloved 'Kurties' to my friends and I.

Even now when we arrange a big night out my friends will say "Are you wearing your Kurties, Heath?"

These shoes have been with me through all sorts. I've got drunk in them, I've eaten in them. I've walked in them, I've danced in them. I've laughed in them, I've cried in them. I've been sick in them (not literally). I've fallen down stairs (and cracked a rib) in them and I've even had sex in them!*

One thing's for sure though, I'll never part with them.



*If I end up wearing these to the Mad Blog Awards later this month, please ignore this!


Now head on over and check out all the other entries...

Everyone says parenthood won't change them. If only they knew! Then again I've always preferred a pair of slippers to heals.

Wow - great shoes! Me likey! I also contracted the anti-heel reaction when pregnant and upon entering the wonderful world of motherhood. I look at the heels I used to wear all day, every day pre Ben and now wonder 'How?'

NotMyYearOff said...

They are very pretty!! But I know exactly what you mean. Give me some flats or trainers any day of the week now. Mine are gathering dust too!

Jacq said...

Now that's what I call shoe-porn. I never wear heels as they hurt my feet but I can see that they look nice.

Funky Wellies said...

Oooh... Fab pair of heels! No wonder they are such a part of your life! Have a look at mine, you might like them too... ;)
PS: I have done the same things in my various pairs of high heels as you, except for the cracked rib!!

Inside The Wendy House said...

Saucy shoes...wish I had a glam pair of favourite shoes.  All I own are Converse, pumps and boots...no sexy footwear for me :(

Sarah said...

Ooooo, very sexy! Gorgeous glam shoes (with plenty of stories to tell.. ahem - and a few more in the making by the sounds of things!).

I knew I was going to enjoy looking at this week's gallery entries - great shoes xx

alison pike said...

Everyone should have a pair of shoes they've been sick in and had sex in! Lovely heels x

Lucy@who_loves_me_ said...

I could almost cut and paste this! I just need to substitute "the kurties" for "the vivs" and it's my life too! So nice to hear it's not just me that lived for heels and now lives in flats... Xx

Viv Morley said...

Ooooh I Likey! No designer shoes in my cupboard unfortunately *sniff* but I have to buy a pair of swanky heels for my Day Zero Project so who knows!

I love your name 'Kurties'. Great make of shoe too, as my post states I am not a big heel fan but when I get a pair I like KG, Carvela or Nine West.
Welcome to the flatty world! xx

michelle ashmore said...

I know nothing about shoes, designer or otherwise! They are very nice though and if I could wear heals, I would like something like those :)

Multiple Mummy said...

I was a heel girl too and now the flats have taken over. Yuck! 

Love those shoes, very beautiful! 

celebratingmums said...

So many posts this week bemoaning going from heels to flats on becoming a mum.  How the mighty have fallen?  Good to hear about your faves but those heels could be dangerous in some of them their activities and not just to you!

nikki h said...

i own quite a few pairs of heels too, but they would need dusting off if i wanted to wear them! with four children, finding the energy to spend a night dancing in them...oh my feet ache just thinking about it!

Michelle Twin Mum said...

I was just going to ask if you were wearing them to the MADS, truly fab and they look in greta condition.  Mich x

jessies_online said...

and you want to risk wearing them to an awards ceremony after falling down stairs in them! well let's hope that neither of those things happen to you in them that time.....especially the latter or Mr Little Britain himself will have something to say about that!!
