Mama needs a new pair of shoes.

Do you thrift shoes? I have many friends who TOTALLY make fun of me for thrifting the occasional pair of shoes. But it’s not like I buy GROSS shoes. I only buy the shoes that are GENTLY USED. Like these.

Franco Sarto! Aren’t they cute! They’ve got a tiny little kitten heel on them, which is all galumpy, ungraceful me can handle. Super comfortable. And $5. You know, buying clothing at thrift stores makes it almost impossible to buy clothes new.

janie hightower Even Mom approves of these shoes, all shiny and new looking. I can’t see the heels, tho. They’re not all run down at the heels, are they?

Leilani I would definitely thrift shoes more often if I didn’t have huge feet ( 9 1/2-10). I did have some luck finding a few pairs of boots 2 months ago though, I’m currently wearing a pair of black lace-up granny boots I got for $6! They were also brand new when I got them though I’ve since scuffed them up, oops. I don’t see an issue with wearing used shoes though I prefer to wear socks/stockings with them and/or put in new gel insoles just for my own peace of mind.
