    This was something I would always do in grade school with a classmate… I'd come home and my mom would be like "Where are your shoes Sharon!!!"… fun times. I wish I could do this now… but most of my girlfriends either have bigger or smaller feet than me..

    So are pantyhose with open-toed shoes okay and chic now? Just about every source I've read has said nonono, even for the cold months. Go bare or wear close-toed pumps. Seriously, I'd be glad if hosiery became de rigeur again even when wearing open shoes. I've got pasty varicosey legs I'd rather smooth out with some silky hose.

    Absolutely amazing.
    Love the way you can see every little detail and that you have even captured the ladder in her tights.

    Lovely photo! I think it is suiting that we cannot see their faces but focus on their shoes and the moment. Well and those are great heels ofcourse.

    Usually we see women making the switch into – or from – more comfortable shoes to reach their destination. I love the image of the swap here; it's mutual, and we wonder why they stopped to share their very similar sandals. LOVE it!

    I feel like I've done this a million times with my girlfriends. It's sort of a "take one for the team" type of thing. Love the runs in her stockings…it really proves that she was in pain! :)

    being a woman is sometimes so "painful"…so the image says: let's share the high-heels suffering…:)))

    I love this picture. Are they really trading shoes? That's so funny. Both of those shoes are beautiful. I like how the girl's tights are ripped, but not tried. Very approachable.
