thx kimair...i thought think they are pretty nice...

i saw some pumps somewhere and was really surprised...
they are REALLY high though ...
and am i the only one choking on the price???...


it's EASY SPIRIT...!!!...
'looks like a pump...feels like a sneaker' has been their tagline for years!!!...
i very much doubt these feel like sneakers...

and they certainly cost way more!!...

^ Lucky's all over them! The wedge lace up boots are in September's issue as are the gray suede pumps on the web site (which I love btw ).

Agreed, though. They seem expensive for Easy Spirit on top of not following the comfort motif...

Easy Spirit lost any good will I might have spared upon them when I bought my "girl shoes" which proved that their slogan "looks like a pump, feels like a sneaker," is one of the worst lies in advertising ever. They give me fresh blisters and new pain every time I try to wear them, therefore I have stopped trying to wear them. Supposedly they're an 8-wide, but I have no good proof to that effect.

Anyway, I bet these are even less comfortable than the pair of shoes I bought, since there cannot possibly be any flexibility in the soles, and for 20 times the price.

I don't like the looks of any of 'em particularly, either. The suede boots with the lacing stuff are kind of cool, but I am SO not loving the "wedgie" heels. They remind me too much of Vivienne Westwood's clomptastic platforms and the old-skool Buffalo sneakers. Not my fave look at all! They'd be much, much cuter with a French heel, I think.

I have very sensitive feet (my mother and aunt have bunions and hammer toes from the shoes they wore in the 60s), and I have concluded that if a shoe has a back to it, you have to spend some money if it's going to be comfortable, because you need good leather, an expensive lining and good design/workmanship, which just don't seem to exist at low price points. The price tag indicates you should be getting great quality here, but I question whether this company has the know-how. If you look at the pix that show the inside of the shoes, looks pretty cheap ... maybe someone who's bought a pair can tell us for sure

I know! They were so cute in Lucky - they didn't lace them all the way up though and tied them to the side. they're way cuter that way. OH and in Lucky they said $380, which I thought was high, but then I checked their site and they're actually $495! ahhh, why can't I find a decent lace-up ankle boot that doesn't cost an arm and two legs?!?
