I have a favorite pair of pink flats that would be awesome to have in yellow, red, green, eggplant, you name it. They aren't being made anymore. Can I easily DIY-replicate them in other fabrics/colors? [more inside]

How can I buy a pair of shoes only sold in the UK?
There is a pair of Clarks that I want but the model is only available in the UK. The website will only ship with in the UK and the US retail stores can't order them. I have an email into Clarks UK and I'm awaiting an answer.
I don't know anyone in the UK so I cant ask them to buy them and ship them.
Is there a way I can buy them and get them to New Jersey? Some sort of shipping relay?

I am trying to get rid of some shoes that I have. They are barely used and in great shape. Examples, vintage nikes (all white), under armous cleats used only a few times etc. All were >$75. So, I'm wondering is there a better way to get rid of them than simply donating to goodwill? I don't want to sell on ebay because of the hassle..and there are thousands of listings...would prefer to get rid of them soon. Just feels weird giving such nice shoes to goodwill.
I am new to my community so I don't have a church or organization to easily give them to.

My new Birkenstocks feel weird. Basically, I feel pressure on my left heel at about the 10 o' clock position, and on the right heel I feel pressure at the 2 o' clock position, like my heels aren't fitting the cups properly. [more inside]

I would like to walk to work, but my nice work pants are all tailored to the length of my nice work shoes, which have enough of a heel that I can't wear the pants with flats. If I walk to work in my heels, I'll wear out the shoes really quickly. Plus, they're not as comfortable as sneakers or flats. I would really appreciate any ideas you guys have, because taking the subway two stops is such a waste! Thanks in advance.
