And Then I Had An Orgasm

It was the last thing I expected to see in my inbox. I was scrolling my way through all my emails, like I do every morning. Optical industry related press releases, Google Alerts, newsletters – all the stuff a marketing manager must have to ensure she is firmly up on the industry’s current events – when I spotted  it. It stuck out, as you can imagine, mainly because…well, you know. But there it was. The headline:

Shoes of Prey Launches Eyewear Collection

Shoes!! Blah blah blah eyewear collection something something Sneaking Duck. Did they say shoes?! Of course, I clicked. How could I not? Gotta keep up with what’s happening in the optical world, right? So, I clicked.

And then I had an orgasm.

As the last of the shudders died down, I read. Shoes of Prey is an Australian company that let’s you – wait for it – design your own shoes!! SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

So, of course I had to fully investigate these Shoes of Prey people that are breaking into the eyewear industry. I mean, it’s for the good of the company, right? And just when I got to the part of their website where you start designing your shoes, people kept asking me to do work stuff and I had to wait until I got home to continue my research. I’m such a dedicated employee.

Shoes of Prey lets you choose the heel type, height, the type of toe, backs, decorations, colours and even materials. In 24 hours, I’ve designed nearly $4,000 worth of shoes. And I could do this forever.  Let me share some with you:

flat shoe, zebra shoe, bow shoe

So pretty, and only the equivalent to a week's worth of groceries.

high heel shoe, bows

With shoes like these, who needs food, right? Right?

red shoe, black shoe, yellow shoe, mary jane shoe, shoe bow, high heel shoe

Seriously, how fun are these? We don't really need to heat the house this winter, do we?

shoe flower, purple shoe, high heel shoe

I picture myself doing the tango in these. Mainly to keep warm since we won't be heating this winter.

A second mortgage isn't such a bad thing, is it?

How many kidneys does a person really need, anyway?

So, if you don’t hear from me for a while, well, um, you’ll understand. And in case you’re wondering, their Sneaking Duck eyeglasses are pretty cool too.

    How could you? I HAVE MIDTERMS TO STUDY FOR. 

  • Totsymae

    Oh, my. You’ve got it BAD! All you have to do is put them on the black market and sell what you design. You can heat that house up after all. :-)

    The only other person I know that has such a bad case of shoe-mania is my great niece! She has over 100 pairs of shoes – and she just got two more pairs for her birthday! 

  • Nicky

    I think your great-niece and I might have been separated at birth! I don’t have 100 pairs, though. Yet. :-)

  • Nicky

    I do have it bad. I admit it. I need help….help buying more shoes!!! I couldn’t possibly sell them, they’re like my children. Except I would see my children, if it meant I could buy more shoes :-)

  • Nicky

    I’m sorry. Maybe if all your answers contain the link to the Shoes Of Prey website, your teachers will get distracted and just automatically give you an A+? I know I would, if I was your teacher.

  • Nicky

    I meant sell my children. Not see. I see them all the time. It doesn’t get me more shoes.

  • Linda Medrano

    Nicky, I’m so easily led astray!  You’ve really done it this time.  OMG!  Those shoes are to die for!  So I may sell both kidneys for them.

  • Nicky

    Silly girl! Sell one of Alex’s kidneys instead!! :-)

  • nonamedufus

    Wait. You had an orgasm at the office? You must have made a spectacle of yourself, huh?

  • Nicky

    Luckily, my door was closed. And I’m not a screamer. Nobody noticed a thing. Not even noticed that my hair was all mussed up.

  • Linda Medrano

    No duh!  What was I thinking?  Well, obviously, I wasn’t.

  • Nicky

    That’s what I’m here for, hon!

  • Linda Medrano

    I’ve always known you were more than just another pretty face!

  • Sandra

    So what you’re saying is that you’ll be in the hospital harvesting  your organs for cash. Got it.

  • Mikewj

    Do they have anything in pink?

  • Nicky

    Naw, hospitals frown on the whole “black market organ donation” thing. Hey! I just thought of something. You have some medical training, right? Help a fellow blogger out?

  • Nicky

    Pink is, indeed, an available colour option. I even designed an open-toe, wedge-heel, bright pink, snake-skin shoe. I don’t know if they have your size, though.

  • Jayne

    Hey, you have great taste in shoes.  And I think the website should give you a pair for plugging them.

  • Nicky

    Thanks, Jayne! And that is a great idea…you know, I might just ask them if they’d be willing to give me a discount!

  • Jayne

    Send them the link.  It NEVER hurts to ask and you may be pleasantly surprised.

  • Linda R.

    I could sure use some new shoes!  Downside is I need to try them on first.  Depending on the shoe, I wear between a 6 12 and 7 1/2.  I hate shoe shopping.

  • Nicky

    Wait, what? You hate shoe shopping?

    *world explodes*

  • Momsdrive Online Finds

    Those shoes are adorable. I also love shoes! I can’t resist not to shop shoes when there something I like.

  • Nicky

    Thanks Momsdrive! That’s the thing with this site – designing your own shoes means you love them ALL! Gets kinda pricey, to say the least :-)

  • Katherine Murray

    “SHUT THE FRONT DOOR”…. you had me in stitches!

  • Nicky

    I love that expression! :-)

  • meleahrebeccah

    Holy Crap!! The shoes you designed are AMAZING!! *races to check out that website*

  • Nicky

    Thanks! See you in a few days :-)

  • meleahrebeccah

    Imma be busy forever over here!
