A few weeks ago, I met up with Miss Gladys, Cheryl D., and Mae C. at the Melrose store. I’m rarely in LA and to spend time with these gals was a total treat. In fact, Miss Gladys wrote about that visit here and here. Since you may have seen Gladys’s posts, you likely know that the four of us fell in love with the Big Presence | Faraday. Sigh.
A while back, I wrote this post about the importance of actually trying on a Vog before determining whether they are you or not. For those of you who wouldn’t bat an eyelash at the Big Presence | Faraday, I urge you to just take the plunge and try it on. It will change your life, I promise you!
I’m not one for pointy toes, small heels, sling backs, or laces on dress shoes. Given that, Big Presence | Faraday was not on my watch list – at all. However, the thing that really sold me are the steel toes. Oh my! When I put these babies on, I felt like I could take on the world. (Seriously. These felt like the kind of shoe I should be wearing when distributing grades. These Vogs scream: “I’m not taking anyone’s sh-t today!”) Not only were they easy to wear and comfy to walk in, they looked way better on my feet than sitting on the shelf. Big Presence | Faraday made me feel powerful. I love that in a Vog!
I eventually tried on both colors and am still debating on whether to add them to my collection. One reason why I hesitate is because I’m anxious for fall. It’s my favorite time of the year! Alas, Big Presence | Faraday is definitely high on my wish list. While both colors are beautiful, I’m partial to the white/nude pair.
I tried these on in 9.5, but I’m thinking that the 10 may suit me better. There’s not a lot of give on these things and my foot hits right at the edge. Also, there’s a hint of toe cleavage, which to me, indicates that the shoe may be a little snug. Another concern I have (and this is specific to my feet) is that I have a weird muscle thing going on with my right foot. When I wiggle my toes, that muscle looks like a heart is beating. It’s weird… almost as weird as Gladys’s “muffin side” thing. Alas, we all have our personal quirks, right?
Anyhoo… Mr. Fluevog, if you’re reading this, I’d like to kindly request more Vogs with steel pointy toes. In the meantime, I say check out the Big Presence | Faraday when you’re in Fluevogland. They’ll make you feel like a superhero!
