For their Spring/Summer Collection, one of my favorite shoe brands, Miss L Fire, came out with a pair of shoes inspired by one of my favorite vintage garments, the Mexican tourist jacket (which some of you know I collect these, with a current tally of 18, with no two alike), and for the first time ever, I actually pre-ordered a pair of shoes. I had been waiting for a somewhat cool day to take them for a spin, as I wanted to wear them with a Mexican tourist jacket, of course! Well, shockingly enough it’s been in the 60s lately here in sunny southern California, as well as windy! So I donned them for the first time to do a bit of shopping in a frantic hunt for a short slip for an upcoming event this weekend.
This is my fifth pair of Miss L Fire shoes, but sadly, the least comfortable of the group. I found the back portion of the strap cutting into my ankle after walking for a period of time. Unlike my other pairs of Miss L Fires, which are leather, these are not, and I fear they may not stretch and become the comfy treasures I want them to be. But I’ll just have to wait and see. I also ordered the cactus shoes from them at the same time, those, which I hope to showcase soon, are a gem, and very comfortable!
Do you own any pairs of Miss L Fires? (I know a few of you do! I’m looking at you, Francis, of Polka Polish!) Or perhaps pining after a pair? Share your thoughts!
