Buys Ladies Tall BootsLast weekend i decided to go shoe shopping for some black tall ladies low heel boots. I went to Aldo shoes first because i know they do carry some ladies styles in size 11. Because it was Saturday there were 3 salesladies working and one lady customer in the store. As it was that customer was also trying on exactly what i was looking for. This meant i was going to have to sit right beside her as I tried on boots. Oh well I said to myself Time to be confident and show no fear! So i told one of the salesladies what I was looking for and she showed me A one pair and explained that this was the one style they had left in big sizes. I said okay and off she went to get my size from the back. while she was gone i looked at the other styles available and saw some lovely ones with heels but I reminded myself that i was looking for low heels. As I browsed the customer and the other sales ladies watched me and I loved every minute of it. When my saleslady returned she said we only have size 10 no size 11 in these would you still like to try them on?. I said okay I will because sometimes 10's do fit. Well these did not. So I said thanks anyhow and then she said she could order size 11 for me or I could go to one of their other stores . I thank you I will go to one of your other locations. Then she said you know if you like we do have 2 styles of tall with heels you can try on. I said really? Wow that would be very nice, but I really am looking for low heels. She said well it is not busy and i have nothing else to do so I don't mind if you wish to try them on. I thought for a moment and said okay I would love that.
The first pair she brought out were black patent with a 3.5" spike heel and pointed toe. I simply adored them. They fit quite well except for the arch was snug but I have come to expect that as i have a tall arch. I got up and started walking around the store in them. I went over to the mirror and checked out how they looked. I was in love with these boots. I then noticed the other customer and the 3 salesladies were all stopped and watching me. There was look of shock curiousness and amazement on their faces and a big grin on mine. I sat back down and said Wow I am surprised I thought they would be harder to walk in. The sales lady said Really? you have never wore high heels before? To which I replied well I am tall so I have always avoided high heels and She replied Well you sure can walk in the well for a first timer. And then the other customer said No kidding I was sure you were going to fall over!, to which I laughed and so did all of them. I tried on the other boots but I did not like the style of them near as much.
I put my shoes back on and thanked her and said that I just might come back to get those.
