I love this shoe. It is a Naturalizer pump that I just bought on sale at my local Dillard's. I have always been a sort of a shoe snob. When I was younger Naturalizer shoes were shoes I really did not notice as I was looking more at the Italian designer shoes and with much higher heels. Naturalizer shoes were the brand of shoes that my mother bought. There was a time when I would not be caught dead in a pair of them.
These are my first pair of Naturalizers. I only tried them on because they were on sale and they looked cute. A maryjane with a wedge. It felt wonderful once I put them on and I was sold. I got them. I got them in black. They are my new, black, dress shoes. At the time there was also a beige pair and I wish I had gotten that too. That would have been good for the spring.
I wonder now, have I become my mother? The very high shoes are now getting harder for me to wear although I still love them. I find myself buying for comfort and not so much for high fashion. And another thing, when I was small the Naturalizer shoes were not stylish in ANY way. I do believe that has changed so that their shoes will appeal to a wider range of shoppers. It is a stylish shoe with a heel that is about an inch lower than what I normally wear. They look and feel good. Naturalizer's are not just for your mother these days! They are for everyone! Here is a close up. Very cute!
What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe! ~~Aileen Mehle~~
