Shoes Shopping @ VISS

September 18th, 2008 · 5 Surrendered

Because some people never do their jobs, we are the one that got the blame when something’s wrong! When it’s going fine, they even dared to claim the credits! It’s not that we never delegate or put in any trust but we were let down again and again and at the end we had to do it ourselves! DAMN IT! You call that team work?!?!?

Few weeks back when the whole of Malaysia was having mega sales, I went to tHe Spring to shop for shoes with my sister. We went into every single shops that sell shoes including Parkson(found some there but no size -.-) and at the end we ended up buying at VISS. I wanted to buy something for my Penang trip because I don’t have a proper footware for travelling after my sandals gave up on me in the last trip to KL.

I was looking for something not so flat, not so high that can let me walk, walk, walk without much problem when travelling, and practical enough for everyday used. Sport shoes is out because I hate bringing socks along when travelling, I hate wearing socks and also I don’t like my feet to be fully wrapped inside for more than 12 hours without much ventilation. Since I’m not going anywhere with cold weather so I won’t bother getting a sport shoes. Summore I only wear my sport shoes like once in a blue moon, why waste such money right? I would rather invest in something I will wear everyday.

I was thinking of getting something that covers the toes this time such as ballerina pump instead of the usual toes peeping sandals. I tried many and they were too hard or too flat for my liking, I need a bit of height, I’m short! I am extremely afraid of blisters therefore I never buy pumps or heels that are fully wrapped. I’ve been a strappy stiletto heels and sandals wearer for more than 10 years! ;p

It took me ages to look for one since months back all over Kuching *LOL* Like I said before, I am very particular when buying footwares ;p I don’t want to spend more than RM40 for a footware anymore especially something like sandals. All my expensive footwares gave up on me earlier than the cheap ones either because of inferior quality(branded ones summore!) or accident. Sigh… As if I’m jinxed that I cannot own any expensive shoes.

Finally at VISS, I found one ballerina pumps. It’s not hard like all those I had tried before and it’s quite cute though it’s plain and simple. Also it didn’t feel like I’m not wearing anything and suddenly I feel so flat and short hahaha… With 10% discount, it’s below RM40! Fit my budget and something that my feet like.

Here you go after yakking so much…

We bought two shoes! My sis bought a pair of strappy stiletto heel with 50% discount and only cost her about RM30+.


Left: My sis’ purchase. Fits me very well ;p

Right: My first ever ballerina pump that is less than 2 and half inches high. I’m wearing it and *HORROR* my vains were showing like no body business and I had to edit this photo *LOL* I didn’t see them when I tried it at the shop due to the lighting and because I’m wearing long pants -.- That’s another reason why I don’t want to wear something too flat, the flatter it is, the worst it will look. So how? I managed to find a way to reduce the vains from showing by inserting Party Feet inside!

I haven’t officially wear it yet, I still very much prefer slip and go sandals *LOL* It’s not easy to wear with the two straps there as I’m always in a rush to go out ;)

    Looks like we’re in the same boat. I was prowling The Spring just this week looking for a good looking sports shoes (and for the same reason as you too – traveling and avoid looking too short, and to make my butt look less big :P ) but couldn’t find any that’s both comfy and “heely” enough. Then, my mom gave me a couple of good advices: 1) Don’t wear new shoes on your travel 2) If you want to wear new shoes, break them in first.

    Thought I’ll pass it along. :) But I know you’re going to break it in, but hey, just in case. :)

    elvawenn, yea.. need to break it. I must wear it some of these days *LOL* Else later going to suffer in Penang just like when in KL when I bought the new slipper after my sandal spoilt. I almost got blister and had to stop by the pharmacy at the LRT station to buy some plasters to avoid more friction right after coming out of the train before meeting our friends that was waiting in the car down there.

    nic, normally I would buy something like this but not this time ;p
