I am bringing a very old blog back to life for a brief moment. I have been on a hunt for heels with prim toes that blend with my skin and are not prim heavy. This has not been an easy task. Last night, I just left a very well known shoe store and was fitting them when I received a notice about the release of some other shoes. I minimized it, but I thought it would be silly to get some because I just bought some. If I buy something and don't wear it, my inventory eats it. I spent another 15 minutes trying to get my skin to match these expensive, unnamed shoes. I left to see these other shoes. I have never heard of the place, so I may be behind the fashion scene again.
I purchased Pure II Black from Ms Graphic Designs. I was immediately impressed with the minimal impact the shoes were to the overall Avatar Rendering Cost (in short, prims with textures and other settings). I love the design; they are so simple and elegant. The shoes come with a removable HUD that is similar to others, but this one was more intuitive. You are able to show toe rings on either or both feet, and the texture of the rings can be changed; of course the nail color can be changed.
Then, I attempted to match my skin, and...it matched in two freaking clicks! Unbelievable. I then bought the multi color ones for obvious reasons, and you can change the color of the heel independently from the rest of the shoe. The shoes can be sized via the HUD, and you are able to click on a help button to get a note card. Today, I bought the multi color ones of Strapped. These are really similar to the others, but they have more straps for when you don't want your feet to be so naked 0.O. I am attaching pictures since everyone wants to see, but I did not put much effort in them. My apologies.
