Heartbreaker, Shoes Got The Best Of Me

7 Apr


Can shoes ever cross the line when they are more fashionable than they are functional? I’m wearing my Aldo Fawson Suede Pumps again, which I haven’t done for a while. They are sexy stiletto heels that know how to work toe cleavage, but I keep forgetting how uncomfortable my feet are in them after long periods of time. Since they’re such a great color and so cute, I just can’t let them go. These shoes are definitely heartbreakers, like that really hot guy (or the one who thinks he’s hot shit) who knows (or just simply believes of) how good good looking he is. Yes, I am talking about the one who continues to break our hearts, but is kept around despite knowing that he’ll just continue to break them again and again. I guess some people can’t understand why some one would even consider wearing an uncomfortable pair of shoes. I can because I do. I can’t; however, understand a friend of a friend, “Betty,” who is with an asshole who constantly cheats on her, but she continues to go back to the cocky douchebag. So Betty has been dating “Stanley” for over a year and deep down she knows he’s the biggest flirt, treats her like crap, and she finally confirmed that there were tons of other girls that he’s cheated on her with. There are a lot of things that go on in relationships, behind closed doors, that people from the outside looking in don’t know about. It’s very easy to judge, not practice what we preach, or assume it’s that easy to just throw a relationship away when that person still sees value in some one, some thing, or just not enough in herself.

I should probably remember to stop wearing these shoes for long periods of time. I guess I still see some inkling in hope that wearing them the next time might not produce the same discomfort. In reality, I need to remind myself that that pain I feel time and time again is self-inflicted, just as Betty’s cycle of hurting herself by allowing the abuse. It’s not just the shoe’s fault, I’m wearing them. It’s not just Stanley’s fault, Betty’s still dating him. It does takes two to tango. I have concluded over the years of observing these way-to-common instances that I just need to shut the hell up about any one’s douchebag dude and be resigned to the fact that we make own decisions, we make our beds, and we lay in them.

I think the older, or rather, wiser I have become, I tolerate some things a lot less than I used to (yeah 6 inch heels, that means you). Taste in clothing or shoes have become more geared towards being practical (no, I don’t mean ugly), but the qualities in things I am looking for have definitely changed. I guess Betty will learn in time (hopefully) to make the right decisions for herself the wiser she becomes, or not… It’s her life. I have my opinions about the situation, but vocalizing any decisions that I may make for myself usually doesn’t ever initiate any change in some one else. I know this because no one can talk me out of wearing these painfully cute shoes. Betty walks in her shoes and I walk in mine and the fact is these shoes got the best of me, I just keep on coming back incessantly; and although our circumstances are quite different from each other, we both seem to be singing the same tune, “Oh why did you have to run your game on me, I should have known right from the start you’d go and break my heart.”

      Thank you for your comment and for stopping by, and yes, some heels can make a lot of noise… they must have a lot to say 🙂

    I have the exact same shoes from Aldo in the same color!!! And yes they’re not very comfortable but they’re so sexy on! I’m not big on toe cleavage, but this shoe gives just the right amount! I make sure I only wear them when I’ll be going somewhere and be I’ll be mostly sitting! Lol
    …Hope Betty realizes (& takes action) that respecting & loving herself is essential to her well-being and how others treat you. Sometimes it means respecting yourself enough to let go.

      Amen to that!
      Yeah, I think she’s in the know of what she needs to do, but I guess everything’s easier said than done. People will do what they do in their time. I hope she sees the light and doesn’t get sucked back.
      I always try to get rid of some things/the extra baggage, especially during spring, but there are some articles of clothes or bags or shoes that I will remind me of “the good times” and I’ll keep ’em around for another season or so, but eventually the unused or the unloved eventually find their ways out, and sometimes, that’s what happen to people in our lives.

    Those shoes are adorable. The decisions we make are entirely our own since we are the ones who have to live with the results of those actions. Sometimes all the pain and anguish is worth the learning experience and all the compliments from strangers on the uber sexy shoes you have on.

      🙂 Yes, they are painfully cute. And see it the same way…
      For some reason, I just thought of the images of drunk girls that just getting out of the nightclubs with their heels in their hands and they just said “F” it, the pain is not worth the anguish. LOL Some people have a higher pain tolerance than others.

    But the shoes are really hot, no matter how uncomfortable they are 😉
