    I've looked, they just don't seem to be available anywhere in my size...
    or locally to even try on.

    I'm not sure if this link is going to work - the site times you out! But I just bought these Viva La Diva shoes. They are a triple E width, which I am pretty excited about! They may be too high for my knees though.

    In Clarks I have tried on, a US size 9. 91/2 in shoes that run smaller.
    39-40 Euro size.

    I just won these on eBay, so I may not be buying more sandals this season.[​IMG]

    I've been eyeing those and am so happy to hear they are comfty! Been looking at those and these Fly London ones. However, I don't find the Fly ones all too comfty. Clarks wins!

    Drat! The store that had the Clarks Vanilla Cream here only have one pair left, in sz 9. :( I should have snapped them up earlier. The 9 was huge..these sandals run big.

    Oh they are just gorgeous!Are they vintage or repro? Either way i would luv to have a pair like that:)
    Your the same size shoe as me :) I asked because i had seen quite a few of the vanilla cream on ebay so i was going to keep an eye out for you as i have been looking at them lately.

    Wow that picture came out huge! They were described as vintage, and look slightly used, but are essentially identical to some another seller is bringing in new from Mexico. Either way, I got them for a good price.

    Thanks for thinking of me, Mrs. Cleaver, I'd love to at least try on those Clarks but I really should pare down my shoe collection before I keep adding more.

    it seems like quite a few of us have the Clarks Vanilla Cream sandals. i have them in red and they have been a great comfy summer sandal. i wear them with everything.

    has anyone heard of Worishofer Shoes? They are supposed to be super comfy and they have a few styles of sandals that are pretty cute. These are my personal favs:

    I'm looking for a nice set of heels in nude/beige/taupe/neutralwhatevercolor, preferably 40s-early 60s style, and not having much luck. I'd prefer vintage, but of course looking for shoes this color is challenging, since everyone has a different name for neutral shades [huh]

    Not sure if this is what you're after (but I think these are gray anyhow), saw them while I was admiring another pair of shoes!

    Aren't they adorable! Well, they're no longer on the Red or Dead site..so I guess ebay is the best bet. They're from the shoe store, Schuh in the UK.

    Not sure if they do international shipping though, and I also couldn't find that particular pair. They only have a few pairs every season.
