There are a few things I'd rather not tell y'all about my feet. But I will anyway. Because I know the people who hang around here are all friends. So here we go...

They are big feet. Well, on the bigger size.

Size 8 1/2

And broad.

Broad as in not slender.
Broad as in - no way that shoes fits me, yo.
Broad as in original true broad.

Every time I leave my slippers right next my best friend's ( Yeah, yeah...Indians and footwear and at the doors) I feel a little bit like big foot. She is a size six or smaller. C'mon man, how does a woman have such small feet. How do they balance a grown woman's body ?

This is when I say thanks to the Lord for my sturdy, dependable big feet and put on my special "for big feet" shoes.

To top it all off, I hate toe cleavage. Even the most gorgeous pair of shoes will not be bought if there is any toe cleavage.

In short I was drowning in misery of having no cute shoes, when then this happened.
*cue heavenly music*A pair of black ballet flats from Lindsey Phillips ($64). Arn't they just the cutest pair ever. They fit my big feet like a comfortable glove. No toe cleavage. No tugging. No pulling. Even the elastic band at the back is soft like feather. You slip your feet in and you enter a feet coma. A general sense of calmness prevails all over your body because your feet are so comfortable. Now anybody who has died a million deaths in high heeled nightmares knows why this is so important and so good.

Comfort apart - these shoes are part of their switch flops family. As in, you can switch the flower snap on top with any one of their fifty snaps ! Its as easy as pulling the old one out and snapping in the new one . Each one adds a little more fun and transforms your regular ballet flats into something new and something better. When I first saw them, there weren't as many snaps($12 each) but now they have a whole lot more !

I am absolutely in love with these new snaps. When Spring rolls over I plan on getting the gold flops or a pair of flip flops and a couple of new snaps. The switching is not only for snaps but also for their flip flops where you can change the straps ! If you have fairly broad feet and don't feel as comfortable in most ballet flats, you should give this a try. I get the feeling you'll love the lush feel of this one !

Guess what ? I'll be meeting my best friend in a few days and guess what shoes I'll be wearing ...
Aah haan ! You got that right, mate !

I am the same size and shape as you, Indian Girl. I feel your pain :P To top it off, I am SHORT and so I avoid flats at all costs. However, these ARE rather cute :)

I feel you on the foot thing girl, I'm 8 1/2 (sometimes 9 but I'm in denial) and I'm 5'2''!! It's so wrong to be short with huge feet. I hate how my flats look when they're not worn, all stretched out! My dad can even fit my shoes!

8 1/2 is NOT big, repeat with me :). Trust me, it's not :). And i prefer flats, never have been much into heels, just not comfortable for me..
