Shoe Withdrawal, Need Advice

So, I have a “problem.” I’m suffering from shoe withdrawal. I haven’t bought a pair of shoes–any shoes–in over 6 months, and I’m starting to feel it. My left eye is twitching.

Add to that the fact that in the last two weeks, not one but TWO pairs of my favorite walking flats have developed holes in the soles. I know shoes can often be re-soled, but, really, where’s the fun in that? Shopping is much more satisfying! I was thinking about…

Cafe noir wedges; Topshop animal print sandals; Marci crisscross sandal

I prefer shoes with an ankle strap (support & adds visual weight to chicken legs) and a slight wedge (helps me walk), but I really just need something cute, walk-able, and under $100. What do you think?

    I like the Freepeople option! I don’t think they’re too casual, I’m pretty sure you could dress them up or down.

    A second vote for the Freepeople shoes, great color!

    My vote is the colorful #3! They aren’t at all boring and look higher-quality than the other 2. It would also be a versatile companian to your favorite summer neutrals – a white dress, denim cutoffs, khaki…

      Looks like the majority go for the colorful ones–those are the ones that stuck with me, too!

    LOVE the freepeople ones but you may get more use out of the neutral Yoox ones…

    I like the middle pair. The leopard print gives it pop, you can dress them with practically any color you want, and you can dress them up or down. I do like the other pairs but it seems as if one is too much and the other is not enough. The middle ones are practical but stylish.

    Another one for #3!
    Love the color.
    Don’t worry about if they’re too casual or not. You’ll definitely rock them!

    Can I vote for all three?

    If I were choosing, though, I’d probably pick the brown pair. I love the cute metal accents, and the line of the shoe is just so pretty 🙂

    All 3 are great but since you can only choose 1, I would choose the red ones; a nice pop of color with any outfit!
    p.s. You’re good, I couldn’t choose only one;)
