Dear pretty pretty Fluevog Miss Aprils that I’ve owned for almost three years:

I adore your style, believe me, I do! But I’ve worn you maybe four times, and you HURT MY FEET. I’m going to give you one more try in the next week or so (around the house, because Seattle weather is not exactly balmy and springlike yet). If you hurt me again, I am going to have to reluctantly sell you off.

(Some Fluevogs work perfectly for me - the entire Mini family, for example. But these gorgeous babies from the Pin Up family don’t like my feet.)
