Shoesday: Chardonnay and Merlot

"Shoes and wine make everything fine." My sister in law put that on a wine glass for me a couple of Christmases ago, and it couldn't be more true. For this Shoesday post, I decided to make it a double feature, so to speak. I originally got these Michael by Michael Kors heels in the taupe color. Yes, the heel height is a bit intimidating, but I can honestly say these are some of the most comfortable heels I own. You can see that I've added some Foot Petals "Tip Toes" ball of foot cushions to them. I do this to a lot of my heels. Not only do they help keep your foot in place so as to prevent "toe-verhang" but they also help your feet last a bit longer. Those cushions were all these babies needed. I liked the taupe so much, that when I was at the Michael Kors store at the Mall of America and saw them on sale for $80, it was an easy buy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they are available in any color anymore EXCEPT cheetah print. Ok, so confession, I tried to get them in cheetah, too, but the fit was off. I ended up getting these instead which are super similar, except have a buckle instead of the back zip.

So, what do you prefer, chardonnay or merlot? Yes, we are still talking about shoes. Or are we?
