I feel like I am totally copying Katie with this post. But today, my favorite shoes died. I don’t know when exactly it happened, but I felt a draft and looked down to find the sole totally cracked and the shoe almost splitting in half. I’ve had these shoes since college. I have no idea what brand they are, because any identifying marks were long ago worn out of them. What’s funny about the fact that I feel like I am copying her post is that everyone at work was like, “Oh, your shoes broke, like the Marriage Confessions Girl!” Pretty funny. Anyhow, now I am trying desperately to replace them.

I bought this pair at Clarks:

But I think I might return them for this pair of Born’s at DSW: http://www.dsw.com/dsw_shoes/catalog/product.jsp?category=cat20084&prodId=162272

Please tell me which pair to buy. I am so indecisive! Assume the price is the same, because with sales and employee (same shopping plaza) discounts, they are the same price – about $50. I am leaning toward the Born’s at DSW.

    I own something super similar to the Born pair and I LOVE them but I noticed yesterday that the sole split. I’ve had them a super long time though. those Clark shoes are CUTE. Either way I think, good choice.
    See you later.

    OH NO! As a recent mourner of a favorite pair of shoes, I can completely sympathize. Its just a tragedy.

    I vote for the Clarks. So cute, and they remind me of my old shoes but cleaner…

    Gotta go. I’m tearing up again. God, I miss those shoes.

    I’m going to defect and vote for the Born pair. I love Clarks shoes, but I feel like if you’re wanting to wear these with pants for work, the plainer pair might be better. The buckle makes the other ones a little more casual. But they’re both cute and will be comfortable, so either one is a good choice. My condolences on your lost shoes – that’s so sad!
