Ever stopped to think how important shoes are? We make fun of those with closets full of shoes, but do we ever really stop to think that, maybe, these people with all the shoes, are actually very fortunate people? Think about what it fees like to wear a bad pair of shoes, and by bad I mean uncomfortable. I’m making the assumption, that people with large collections of shoes actually keep and wear these shoes because they are comfortable. Otherwise, why have them?
It has been nearly two years since I have been able to find a decent pair of shoes. Let’s define decent: the shoes must look attractive and feel comfortable when worn for longer than ten minutes. I’m not taIking about stilettos either. I can’t wear sneakers to work, at least not every day, and those are comfy shoes. I’m talking about work shoes. The last pair of shoes I purchased, felt great, while I was in the store. An hour after wearing them to work one day and I could feel the blisters start. I have other shoes, but none that are comfortable for working an 8-hour day mostly on my feet. They all feel great when I’m trying them on, but they don’t continue to feel that way after I get them home. By the end my work day most days my legs and feet are killing me.
I envy people with closets full of shoes, especially if they have a closet full of comfortable shoes.
