Shoe Swoon: The (Unknown) ASOS Shoe

This "shoe swoon" post has nothing more than a picture to reference. When I saw this shoe on the header of the Women>Shoe page on ASOS.com, I started searching all over the site to see who made it and was it available in my size. The cost was the furthest thing from my mind. Simply put...I WANTED IT! Much to my dismay, the shoe was nowhere to be found.

Just to demonstrate my sometimes outrageous obsessions with things, I must inform you that I immediately submitted a request form to ASOS's customer service (which is fabulous and oh-so responsive) to find out how to get my hands on this new love of my life shoe. Unfortunately, the response was that they were unaware of the brand. But there's hope, my friends. They also stated that the shoe should be available on the site next week. Needless to say, I'll be stalking ASOS every day next week. So what do you think? Is this shoe worth all of the effort I'm already putting into it? [in case you're wondering, that's a rhetorical question]

I'll update this blog if there are any further updates on my quest.

So, tell me...What's your current obsession?

(2/15/10): The shoe is now up for sale at ASOS! It's the Alpha Suede Patchwork Boot and is available for a price of approx. $215. This is a tad bit higher than what I was expecting to pay. Now, don't get me wrong, I've spent more than that on shoes before. However, they are usually more practical in nature. I'm not so sure I'd get enough wear out of these to justify the current price tag. I will be keeping my eyes on this one in hopes that the price will dip under $200. Then, with a coupon code (which you can always find online at any given time), it'll be even more affordable.

Now, on to the next obsession....

What am I not obsessed with is the question. I am dying over a pair of L.A.M.B. shoes I blogged about in December. They're black and white houndstooth and I tried them on in an Off Saks and I want them so bad! I want an entirely new fabulous shoe wardrobe.

You know what? I've been on the same page lately. I'm finding myself wanting a lot of shoes recently. Lord knows I don't need any more! But that never really is the point anyway, right? LOL!
