Alix, they are very sexy.

I wonder if I could actually wear them; a question my dance partner has asked a few times

Tango? Woo woo! Hot stuff there bethzaring! Did you do the rose in your teeth and everything? Swishy dress and heels?
Picked up the "Completely Revised Tenth Anniversary Edition" of How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. So far I've only gotten to the dust jacket and end papers, will have to stop watching TV, stop playing here, curl up and read.

Sounds fun, Beth. I couldn't wear those shoes, either. Too many years of wearing shoes that are comfortable and they usually don't make those in a double-wide.

A glass or two of wine and you wouldn't even feel your feet!

I'm talking about the evil-stepsister syndrome, I wouldn't be able to get my feet in the shoes to begin with.

I agree as far as the heels. I'd have to stand in one spot and not move. Sorta defeats the purpose of a tango. Maybe on soft ground I could use the heels as a pivot if I dug them into the soil really well.

I have double wide feet too. You'd be amazed at what you can find these days.

You guys are a hoot!

At first, I was abstaining when learning the two step. But now I regularly have one glass of wine while dancing, and it really helps me. But the dance I have become fond of is salsa. And I really need the wine to execute the salsa.

I hear ya on the width problem. Size 5EEE. The best I can do is 1¼" heel. And that is a shock to my leg. I really become unsteady even in those. I am nervous about the party my daughter is tossing for me next month. I have a brand new pair of heels I have never worn. Fortunately, I can take my scooter downstairs and then find a seat for the whole day and never move. Let the world wait on me for a change.

You will never talk me into a pair of those shoes, anything higher than a one inch heel and I get nosebleeds.
