    Agreed about dance shoes! I have "character" heels (t-strap and maryjane styles) that are incredibly comfortable and pretty at the same time.
    Thank you for those links; I already see things I like!! ;)

    Me either LD, I have Fred Flinstone feet and try and hide as much of them as I can. I look ok in the peep toes, but can't stand the way my feet look when I see the toe cleavage.

    :eek:fftopic: , well kind of...

    You know what really peeves me? I have weird feet to begin with, but my little pinky-toe is uber weird...it is so small and when I wear certain sandals or open-toe shoes sometimes the little guy likes to sneak out from the cozy confines of the shoe!

    Ditto. I've got big flat feet, and toe cleavage makes them look bigger and flatter. Just another trend I wish would trend itself out.

    Dumb question... :p

    What exactly is this toe cleavage? Are we talking modern peep toes that are too large compared to vintage? Those open-toe shoes where the hole's cut straight across? Regular sandals of any kind?

    It's the parts where the toes join the foot. Ugh. In an article I read for some reason, which was so revolting I've forgotten where, it said that yes, peep toe shoes are coming back but with the modern update of toe cleavage. This is one of many reasons I hate anything modern. I think it was Lucky, Allure, Marie Claire, or Harper's Bazaar. ;)

    If I use the word the way everyone else does, it means when the toe area of the shoe is cut lower on the foot so that the foot end of the toes show. You can see the lines where the toes begin, so it kinda looks like like cleavage. Personally, it looks a little more like plumbers crack of the toe to me! lol

    Pink, they are soooo comfy!!! I just wish they had red and white polka dot shoes. :(

    I got the Joan and Davids at Marshalls and guess what they had. One pair of Sailor pants (exaclty like the vintage ones you see on eBay for $20!!!!!). They were a size 10 and fell off of me. :(. I spent and additional 30 minutes looking for more but didn't see any. I am still tramatized. :( lol

    Re-Mix Shoes

    I've heard all about them. Tonight I decided to look them up.

    Do any of you ladies own any Re-Mix shoes?

    If so, are they worth it? (They are quite pricey.)

    I love mine! Love them! Love them! Love them! I have size 9.5 feet though so there's no way I'm getting a pair of vintage wedges for less than $100 anyway. I find them exceedingly comfortable. Not all styles are true to size however, so I suggest visiting the store in LA is you have the opportunity.

    Hey Pink:)

    I have yet to purchase a pair of. Remix, although they have quite a few pairs that I want. It's really out of sheer laziness. You have to place your order by phone, and I just haven't gotten around to doing it. I know, so silly! Although, I hear the store offers a lot more pairs than the website, and supposedly you can call and tell them what you are looking for and they might end up showing you pairs that aren't sold online.
    But anyway, a lot of the gals here have them. The majority of the reviews are great. From what I hear they are well worth the money, very well made. Here's a couple of threads on them, I hope you find them useful. I'm sure that there's more than these two, so if you don't find your answers in them, you'll probably be able to find more info than what these two threads offer. I just did a search on "remix vintage shoes the fedora lounge" on google and a few things came up.
    Check out this thread and this thread. I hope you find this useful:) Let us know if you decide to take the plunge!!

    I ADORE my Remix shoes. And I have very finicky feet (super narrow and completely flat, so a lot of shoes are painful or even dangerous for me). I have both the Gloria and Capri wedgies and though the Gloria ones took a day of breaking in, but they are totally worth it. They are super comfy and I always get compliments on them. The Gloria ones are basically 2 for 1 shoes too, because the bows are detachable. If you have the money, go for it!

    And I second visiting the store! One of the owners working there gave me a $40 discount for paying in cash and being a college student! He was totally helpful and really sweet.

    Still some left in size 8.5

    Wore these shoes out tonight in my size 6. It was a film noir night, by which I mean rainy. Turns out I had to park blocks away from the joint. The shoes were very comfy even with no gel inserts or insoles of any kind, and chic. Love these shoes!! $14.79!!!
