Question: Are these shoes for a short stripper?

Yeah, those should be on some bow-legged naked chick named Honeysuckle…

No, I like them!

No, I don’t like them…

I’m not sure?

I want to vote for honeysuckle, but I don’t hate the shoes.

I bought a pair of shoes online. I knew they were going to be out of my comfort zone, but when they got to my house they were way more intimidating in person! I don’t normally wear heels and I didn’t take into account that the 2’’ platform would make it a total of 5’’. That being said, I got a good deal, they are actually really easy to walk in and comfortable. They don’t look as massive once they are on.

The problem is that when I opened the shoe box SO was standing there with me. The second he saw them he started to berate me. I tried them on and it was one thing after another. I'll just say that he does not like them at all. he said that they look like they were made for a short stripper. That was obviously wonderful for my confidence. I felt like an idiot… I’m plain when it comes to style. I wear makeup and I do my hair, but I wear jeans and a black or gray shirt of some kind 95% of the time. Nothing overly drab. I just don’t gravitate to color or things that would be considered anything but ‘plain’. SO is the same way. He would probably make the same kind of comments if I attempted to wear a pair of leggings and a long shirt (I see a lot of women wearing outfits with leggings, I’m sure you can picture what I mean) or something like that. I just don’t push the issue. Now that I have the reaction was completely overboard. I don’t think he is used to seeing me 6’ tall either. I wish he could have just said that he didn’t like them and he thought they were too tall. WTF, is that too much to ask for? I’m in my 20's now... I feel like it’s time to upgrade my style a little. I’m still wearing things that I wore back in high school.

I tried the shoes on again yesterday without him there. I actually like them. To be honest, returning them will be a PITA. I don’t know if I even want to. They look a lot better with a pair of jeans on. I was just wearing a pair of sweatpants and a T-Shirt before.

Anyways, I took a few pictures so I could get some opinions on the shoes. Honesty is welcome.

 

 Pardon the sock.

Your SO is a jackass.

They're fine.

Now had they been silver and a sandal then ya, a bit hookerish. But these aren't even close.
