You got the luck of the gene pool and ended up with a dainty little pair of size 6 feet. Sidle on down to Second Debut, because here's why:

2nd runner-up: Supple purple velvet Coach loafers for $60 (size 6).

1st runner-up: Classic black patent-leather Stuart Weitzman pointy-toed pumps for $48 (size 6).

And the crown goes to: A pair of untouched Prada leather sandal slingbacks in the softest shade of camel for $28 (size 6.5).

A Goodwill/EasterSeals Minnesota franchise, Second Debut is to regular Goodwill stores as Nordstrom is to JC Penney -- great selection but higher name brands, especially when it comes to shoes.

For us average-footed folks, there is still plenty of foot candy: Nine West, Via Spiga and Franco Sartos with nary a heel impression they look so new.

(Side note to jean mongers: In one quick sweep, we spotted a pair of acid-washed 7 For All Mankinds for $45, some size 29 high-waisted dark wash Rich & Skinny's for $38, and an all ready perfectly worn-in pair of Citizens for Humanity for $45.)

We don't know who the woman is that can part ways with Pradas and Sevens in times like these, but we thank her.

Second Debut, 4300 W. 36 1/2 St., 952-922-9640.

Catch the store's fall preview next Thursday (8/6, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.). See ticket and event information here.

Last chance to get the SBG Designs Fizzy Freebie. Free earrings (plus a 10 percent discount any purchases) to the first two people to visit her booth on Saturday at the Open Air Art Fair, Caribou Coffee (Hwy. 55 and Revere Lane), 10160 6th Av. N., Plymouth, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
