This is great -- like shopping with friends. Actually, that's exactly what it is.
I do have those Solemates things -- I forgot all about them. I wonder if they'd be good enough. They sell them for bridesmaids. I guess I can practice in my yard. I have the same concern about them getting stuck in soft ground (and then scraping the heel of the shoe). They do a good job on cobblestones, though.
Lowspark, we see eye to eye even more than we already knew we did! I had just put exactly those first three DSW pairs in my "shopping cart" to order later (they don't have the 4th one in my size, but I see in your next post that Macy's does). (They have free shipping, so I can order lots of pairs and then return the "rejects" to my local store before the bill even comes.)
I'm trying to insert images, but for some reason it's not working. I think I like the first one, with the cut out in the heel, the best -- seems dressiest.
Hmmmmm and PastryGoddess, those are really good choices, too. PastryGoddess, I agree that the first of the ones you put is a good option. What color would you say?
