OK, I admit it: I totally didn’t expect these shoes to be comfortable. Not for a second. I mean, come on – shoes this cheap and this high just aren’t going to be made for comfort, are they?
Well, here’s the amazing thing: they were actually pretty comfortable, and by “pretty comfortable” I mean “you wouldn’t want to wear them to the gym, say, but as far as 5″ heels go, I didn’t have a single problem with them all night”. To prove it, I did a few laps of the pool and almost showed you all my underwear: whoops!
(I feel I should add a disclaimer here for anyone thinking of buying these shoes, and because I always worry a bit about answering the “are they comfortable” question, in case the person goes on to buy the shoes in question, and then tries to sue me or something when they hurt their feet or break their ankle. My disclaimer is that as everyone’s feet are different, what’s comfortable for me may not be comfortable for you, and vice versa. I wear high heels almost all the time, so I’m used to them, but I think “comfortable” has to be a comparative term when you’re talking about stilettos, anyway – they’re never going to feel like slippers, put it that way.)
Oh, hai, little corner of my bra! This is the big problem of being short, with a freakishly long torso – no matter what you do, your bra always shows in anything lower than a turtle neck. And the big problem with being me is that I always feel compelled to point these things out, before someone else does. This is why any time I have a zit, say, I walk around all day saying to people, “Hi! I have a giant zit on my head!” rather than have them look at me and think, “Poor Amber, she doesn’t know she has a giant zit on her head!” Is it just me?
Waaay too hot to have hair around your neck! Also pictured: random bottle of water.
“I believe I can fly… I believe I can… oh no, wait, I can’t. I can just run funny…”

I can’t quite believe that after all this time I’m still only on Shoe Challenge 30! Given that the majority of my shoes are summer styles, I really have to get my skates on now if I want to complete the challenge in the time allowed. Or get my strappy sandals on, rather: if I put skates on, that would just be silly…
