Can't wear the ones I have. 5MB each shoe is just stupid and would get me ejected from many venues that don't allow script overusers to spoil the experience for everyone else. Since they are no mod I cannot rip the never used for anything scripts out.

Dude has made good money from this vanity:

More then 200,000 pairs for over $1M

I know nothing about Stiletto Moody shoes, but I do know that large established merchants have the double burden of 1) making new content regularly as well as 2) keeping older content updated. It is difficult to do both at the same time and match the pace of new product releases of newer stores that can concentrate entirely on new releases. To do both well they would need to almost double the size of their team -- and with their sales it may be easy enough to meet the payroll; however, finding the right ppl to put on the payroll might be more difficult than it sounds.

This is why I outright refuse to buy no-mod content.

For L$1299, they'd better have the color HUD, alpha option, built-in foot massager, and a mini-taser for those occasions when my wardrobe is not stunning enough on its own.

There are so many brands out there now with superior products for less money, it's kind of shocking that people still even choose to shop at SM anymore. When I see people wearing SM shoes, I assume they're newbies who don't know any better and figured the big pricetag automatically implies better quality.

Better shoes with sculpted prim-foot parts may be found at N-Core, Nardcotix, Annex, Maitreya, LeLutka, Pixel Mode, SLink... and that list is just off the top of my head!

My impression of SM is that they're just plain arrogant for seeming to think they can dismiss what the market wants, and continue to offer invisiprims and horrid skin-matching menus for shoes that cost way more, with no demos.

I'm sentimental. I still love my Stiletto Moody "Gretas" and "Pinups" and will continue to wear them because they remind me of good times in my SL past. I have loads of other shoes and wear those, also. If people want to assume I'm a noob, I'll have to assume they are too dumb or lazy to read a profile.

Stiletto Moody is just driving the brand against the wall like Armidi did before. Both hired a team of excellent designers, both are based on an excellent marketing strategy, both had nothing to deliver anymore after the crucial designers moved on and somewhat lost interest to really care, both tried to keep the brand in the minds with more and more weird marketing stunts and promises that even more rapidly made the brand decline. Both still make a lot of money off the 'old days' and once the inworld sales drop to a point, where it doesn't justify the costs of a sim anymore, the stuff will turn up on the marketplace with ridiculous merchant names like 'fashion' and 'fashionz' under which the armidi stuff is sold out now (and still generates a lot of money).
Stiletto Moody is as dead as it can be (and still generates a lot of money).

I've felt for a year now that N-core has as good a product, if not better, and for a lower price. L$2,000 for a pair of shoes, whether with prim feet or not, was just out of my price range. But I have several pair of N-core, and for half of what Moody was charging.

"If people want to assume I'm a noob, I'll have to assume they are too dumb or lazy to read a profile."

I don't mean to be rude, but I don't click on everyone's profile to read--especially now that SL makes them load so slowly. If I see invisiprims, I do assume that the player is new.

No offense but even when they were popular I found them an eyesore. Besides that... they are super overpriced. Go to SLink if you want nice shoes XD I cant stand Moodys prices sorry. I mean you know? I understand paying 600l ish for a well sculpted well scripted hud driven very option changing item that is beyond reasonable... but Moody charges way too much for shoes that dont warrant such pricing. Just my two cents.

I just saw your comment Arcadia "For L$1299, they'd better have the color HUD, alpha option, built-in foot massager, and a mini-taser for those occasions when my wardrobe is not stunning enough on its own."

Basically. Yeah that sums it up.

I run a small shop where I make shoes from full perm sculpties which I buy from their creators etc. When a friend bought moody shoes recently I was appalled. Even in my small shop, I use a hud based system, offer both alpha and invisiprim versions of each pair. I also use an ankle lock system to prevent the shoe from moving around on the foot so that ankle attachments don't look funny as they do in the case of Moody shoes. I had to make an invisible ankle lock attachment for my friend so she could wear her shoes more beautifully. 1500L or more for a pair of shoes that doesn't come with these standard benefits is ridiculous, no matter how pretty the shoe is. Furthermore, I find that Moody's feet have not been updated in the years since they were first introduced and when compared to maitreya or slink or ncore look dirty and unrealistic.

A few weeks ago I noticed that the store in world and the Marketplace of Stiletto Moody are gone.. After a long time without new releases, I know from personal experience that it's not easy to keep up to date a great brand, and at the same time find inspiration to continue supprender customers with new releases. I also know that nowadays there are many other more affordable brands with good quality!
Even I now rarely use a Moody's, but do not criticize those who do! For me wearing a Moody's is wearing a piece of SL history, with all the memories of the times when Moody's opened, I still remember like it was yesterday the day that I first saw a Moody's in early 2007, just weeks after have opened the Armidi, and was exactly at Armidi where I saw in the first time someone wearing a Moody's I remember that the first time I was so flabbergasted that not had time to inspect to see who was the creator. spent days in the Armidi sim until finally appears someone with other Moody's, this time already inspected and teleported me to the first store Moody's which had only 2 versions of the same shoe in different colors already at the time were very expensive but I had to buy them! People who criticize at this point probably has not even played SL, at this time the Moody's Armidi Cake have sculpted shoes! everything else was prim made shoe!
Moody's its an Icon of SL best times ever! And now that was gone its not for sure a matter of being newbie! Who lived those times can't ever forget! As I say before its "like the orchestra of the Titanic, playing while sinking!"
