I have a shoe problem. Or, a foot problem. Maybe it's a budget problem.
Whatever I call it - I need shoes. BADLY!
A recent inventory of my closet yielded a shocking truth:
I own two pair of summer shoes that fit comfortably. TWO!
Summer is nearly over, but my winter shoe situation isn't much better.
I own one pair of cowboy boots (too hot till at least November), two pair of black flats, and several pair of gorgeous heels that I only wear to church.
This, my friends, is a problem.
I realized how much of a problem when I wore my new (very cheap) red patent leather
loafers last week. I got a compliment from nearly every person I passed.
Wow, I kept thinking, I have got to start wearing cute shoes more often.
OK, time to buy shoes. No, wait. I can never find anything that I like and that fits. UGH!
I hate tying shoes; so I have only slip-ons.
I can't stand something between my toes; so there go flip-flops. (Fine by me, I hate them anyway.)
My arches are super high; so no shoes that come up far on the foot.
My heel is terribly narrow; so backless shoes work best.
I stand on my feet all day and chase around small children at recess.
Shoes that are cute and cheap are out because they also must be comfortable.
Those red loafers had me limping for two days.
See? I told you - I have a shoe problem!
I want my feet to look like Sarah's. (See above.)
I need the comfort factor that make my shoes look more like Nurse Ratchett's.
What's a girl to do?
What about you? Are you a shoe fiend? Do sacrifice beauty for comfort or the other way around? What brands are your favorites? Do tell.
