HELP! Desperately Seeking Shoes!

Hello everyone.  I am frantically scrambling to find the perfect shoes before my first fitting in about 3-4 weeks.  In my searches, I found the PERFECT pair (http://www.amazon.com/Kate-Spade-York-Womens-Latrice/dp/B0051TTDZ8/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t)  My colors are navy, granny apple green and purple.  Unfortunately, they are from a few years ago and are impossible to find.  My only hope is that I stumble on someone selling theirs before anyone else does.  If anyone has any suggestions as to possible shops/websites, etc that may have older model designer shoes, it would be much appreciated.  Or, if anyone just happens to have a pair of these in size 6.5 or 7 just lying around in their closet, I'm willing to buy them and give them a good home!

Thanks!!
Amy

    Ditto this.

    Will make it slightly more able to be worn again as well, since you likely won't have as many opportunities to wear a lime AND purple shoe again.

    Ballroom dance shoes come in a wide variety of colors and they are made to be to take some abuse and be comfy while dancing.  If you decide to go this route, you probably won't want to look for "discount" or a super cheap pair because they're usually poorly made and are pretty sure to cause you serious blisters.  You'll probably do best to go to your local dance wear shop, at least to try on a few pairs even if you can only find your colors online.  People who work there are trained to help you find the right size and fit!  I'd also recommend wearing them for a couple hours around the house to break them in, find the potential blister spots, and get used to how they feel - dance shoes can be fantastically comfy but they feel different from street shoes (more bendy and flexible) and, if you've never worn them before, they can feel a little strange at first.  Best of luck!

    Look on ebay.  There tends to be lots of Kate Spade.  Although watch where it's shipping from so it's not fake.

    @knottie78512628 I just got those kate spade shoes in white!  I found them by chance at the nordstrom rack.  I would check them bc they have an online site.  Also if you have any kate spade outlet stores near you.  There is also a site called tradesy and its used stuff but it has a whole wedding section and tons of Kate Spade shoes.  Good Luck!!!

    Have you looked at either:

    www.shoesofprey.com

    or

    www.milkandhoneyshoes.com

    These are websites where you can design your own shoes.  If you do a rush order, you should be able to get them before the fitting, otherwise, just take some shoes the same height if you have some.

    I buy from Shoes of Prey every so often.  I've found them comfortable on the first wear as long as you get the standard lining.  

    If nothing else, designing shoes you aren't going to buy is great fun!

    I hope you find what you're looking for. x
