Five Great Shoes Under $50: The Mid-Heel Evening Shoe

Filed under: Five Great...,Sales,Shoes — Miss Plumcake @ 8:00 am

Mid-heel evening shoes are like cigarettes in jail: Difficult to obtain, highly valuable and worth their weight in gold. Also sometimes a really buff gay guy will try to stab you for them.

Mid-heels are perfect for New Year’s Eve parties because odds are you’ll be up late and doing a lot of standing.

Personally I’m wearing these:

pewter atwoods

which are most certainly NOT mid-heels, (the shoes are pewter lace-up sandals by Brian Atwood, the scarf is Couvertures et Tenues de Jour by Hermes) but I also don’t plan on doing much other than draping myself elegantly across a divan and/or bar stool and having champagne funneled down my throat.

A more sensible choice than the full talons aiguilles (literally “needle heels”) would be these thin-wale velvet darlings from Clone. At a sensible 2.7 inches with a pyramid heel, you’ll rock out the naughties in style.

Clone velvet

Plus they’re closed-toe for your champagne-sipping pleasure!


  1. Thank You, Plum. You tortured me with those cute beige shoes in the too-high-for-my-shot-knee heel. These are attainable (and dirt cheap-bonus!).

  2. Beeyoootiful. Happy New Year! I am going to wear a pair of Stewart Weitzman pumps from a million years ago, a mint-green kimono top, and a gold skullcap. I just got my haircut yesterday–think a chubby Catherine Zeta Jones from Chicago, only the bob is auburn. Very exciting!
