The need is great

“This is a shoe I need,” said a woman I follow on Twitter. (Her account is private, so I shan’t identify her further.) Here’s the shoe in question:

Bombay ankle-tie sandal by Badgley Mischka

“Very nice,” I said. “Who makes it, and where can it be had?”

(The things I go through for my readers.)

She identified it as a Badgley Mischka shoe, “at finer stores.” I poked around the Web a while and turned it up at Nordstrom Rack. It’s called “Bombay,” it’s four inches tall, and it can be had in black leather or in “sand” suede. And it’s apparently due for discontinuation: list price is $225, but Nordstrom is letting it go for $130.

    I need this shoe like I need sprained ankle…
    OK, OK, it’s a beautiful shoe – to stand in. For 5 min, then somebody (my chauffeur? valet? butler?) should pick me up and carry all the way to my soft 1″-h slippers

    Some people evidently can walk short distances in these things. I am not one of them.

    Me neither. I’ve vented often, on this topic. Sorry to say it of my gender, but so many of us are fools for vanity.
