Suffice to say Arielle, yes I did buy solely on the basis of looks without a thought for comfort (not a single one, once, ever!). And a couple of pairs almost certainly fit into the 'novelty' category you mention (ahem!). However although all are dress shoes two of them are more court shoe peep toe style with only 4" rather than 5" heel and would probably be wearable were my toes not crushed foot binding style into them. None are anywhere near as sensible as the ones you have pictured. You seem to have struck a good balance between comfort and style. I would also guess yours have the width to allow the toes through Sonya. Certainly none of mine are really suitable for day wear, they are more in the club/cocktail dress category. I have yet to decide whether I live in the real world or not.
At least I don't have the large size/height issue which some of you seem to. My heart goes out to you as this must add further complications to the already tricky conundrum.
So I guess it's either throw them away or re-sell as suggested, or just suffer and hope they stretch and limit my walking to a couple of hundred yards in an evening, until I manage to strike that elusive balance between comfort and looks.
It is a difficult path with a low hit rate this one as many of you have already experienced.

My 5 " heels do have a bit of a platform, but it probably only knocked an inch off the heel size (which are the thickness of a pencil).
And yes it is a good idea to watch gg's in daywear, I got locked into fantasy images instead (wonder why...), but am now expanding my horizons stimulated by the catalyst of your picture Arielle and your Store recommendation Gothgirl. So I have struck a balance between practical and sexy and made my first sensible shoe purchase, perfectly timed in a sale that lasts for the next day (Woohoo!). I will wait till they arrive and then if they fit well will find a way to post an image or link in celebration.
The only thing is as you suggest Sonya, the dream has now kicked in as it seems each pair of shoes suggest its own outfit, bag and jewellery, and even makeup, especially now I've moved in a different direction. I can now see the root of womens obsessions with shoes, bags and accessories, and how it can end (or start!) with needing walk in room sized wardrobes.
