I am considering replacing my Chinese Laundry 5" heels with a red Dansko Mary Jane.
I am not worried about length. I am just not sure about walking that far when nervous in heels. I asked the FH if he would mind. He says he isn’t really a fan of heels. But he thinks the Mary Jane look is great. I am so happy!!!! This means I can still collect high heels I never wear. Yep, that’s right. I collect them like art. I have them in boxes, love looking at them and fantasize about wearing them, but don’t.
Am I nut for thinking about wearing a red mary jane Dansko with my Maggie Sottero dress?

hmmm, truthfully you can wear whatever your little heart desires, however I will give you my honest opinion about the shoes….
Even though as much as you are worried about being nervous in heels maybe consider a different shoe? the Mary Jane looks a little chunky to me and with your Maggie?!? your maggie is beautiful! and just sooooo different from the shoes.
what about a nice flat? or a kitten heel or a funky small wedge?
If you do like the shoe, then go for it! whatever you feel comfy in! (also they do look a little hot for Australia weather??)

I like Mary Janes because they don’t fall off as easily! 😉 Personally I’ve never had great luck with Chinese Laundry being terribly comfortable or easy to walk in. 🙁
I would probably choose a more delicate one than the danskos though… How about some hush puppie? I have a super comfy pair. In the end, as the other gals said, do what makes you happy. If you wanna wear read chuck taylors, or big ol wellies, do it! 🙂

In Danskos I tend to roll my heel alot, so make sure that they are going to work ok for you before you buy. If you want a sturdier shoe, I might suggest a Fluevog.
