First Pair of Guess Shoes

These closed-toe pumps with a somewhat altered Mary Jane style has a strap closer to the toe of the foot instead of around the ankle. According to the Guess website, the heel is 4.5 inches with a 1.25 inch platform (fat platform! at least it is to me). Its chunky heel and substantial platform make them quite comfortable and easy to walk in, since it pretty much takes away the wobble factor entirely.

When I had purchased them in December, they were $41.99. With tax & shipping of $7.95, it came out to a total of $54.18. I used, which had 5% cashback at the time, which was $2.10. So in actuality, the true total was $52.08. That is more than I usually like to spend on one pair of shoes. However, they are made of leather with a shiny, patent finish, which I like, because I find patent leather to be easier to clean than other materials. Also, the original retail price was $110.00, so I got these shoes for more than 50% off.

They are on sale now for $49.95 in black as well as Natural (which are the nude-colored ones shown above), for $49.95. There are some other colors with a decent price range floating around from other retailers, like Macy`s,,,, et cetera. The red ones remind me of Dorothy`s shoes from the Wizard of Oz, minus the glitter.

I wore these pumps to Vegas about a couple of months ago. They were the only dressy pair of shoes I brought. Actually I usually only bring one pair of heels if the occasion deems it necessary. I can`t stand to pack multiple pairs of shoes, or more than one carry-on bag for that matter. Since I was partially going for work and spending the weekend there for fun, I wanted one pair of shoes that could fit well in both work and play ensembles. Considering how much I walked/stood around in them, they held up quite well. Very minimal scuffing and the bottom of the shoe stained of course, but I got most of it off with some generic baby wipes. More importantly, I held up quite well in them. I was able to walk in them at a fairly quick speed, around the strip, room to room to strip to ramps, theatres, conference rooms, et cetera. I even wore them to the airport and all the way back home. (I didn`t have time to change my shoes. Well once I had arrived at the airport, I had nothing but time, but I didn`t want to rearrange my bag and open up that can of worms, lol.) I did get tired walking, because well...after all that time from having my feet at an arch, I was happy to sit.
