What are those? The overflow from Lady Gaga’s closet? Hmmm. No-o-o-o-o-o-o … they are shoes and boots on sale at a local retailer. Anyone can look outrageous these days, it seems.
As for me, I own wayyyyyyy too many shoes, and it’s not because I have a shoe fetish. It’s because my husband keeps buying them for me (I do not shop, I hate it).
What do you think are my favorite kind of shoes …
Outrageous high heels? (not a chance)
Boots? (a close second, but only if they are low-heeled)
Dress shoes? (Ugh! NO! That would require a dress to wear with them, and that will not happen!)
Athletic shoes? (DING DING DING!! You are correct!)
Do you think I have enough?
(Those aren’t even all of them. I didn’t feel like dragging out every single pair that I own. That would have taken all night.)
I just can’t help it, I love to work out. Lately, I’ve been enjoying “zumba-type” classes, and these little Reeboks have worked surprisingly well:
I got a few pairs of those, since they were on sale. I mean, big-time sale. I like how the big round pad under the ball of my foot allows me to pivot oh-so-easily. I love Asics shoes, too, but they are hardly ever on sale and I have to save up for them. I would dearly love some blue and white ones.
Soon I will have to go back to work (seems like prison to me). Maybe these will cheer me up:
That is, unless I fall off them. High heels and me do not get along, usually. Where’s the “power” in that, right?
These will make me feel great, though, I know it:
So, I guess the point of this story is that I will leave the outrageous look to other people better equipped to deal with sky-high heels, and go on my merry way in my comfortable little un-daring footwear. My back will thank me, and so will my happy feet.
