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.

About Miz Insomniac

Usually, it's the kids who grow up and leave home, but Miz Insomniac switched it up. When her kids grew up she decided to make her dreams come true so she flew the nest. After making 12 trips across the pond and back to Europe, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East in 2014-15, Miz Insomniac now qualifies as a world traveler. She hasn't quite mastered the fine art of traveling light, but she knows how to manipulate travel plans to avoid missed flights and jet lag. A former hopeless romantic turned realist, she's stateside now reinventing her life in a new city, with new opportunities, and all the challenges that come with leaving a career, traveling abroad for a year, and then returning to a world that's nothing like she left it. Her overseas travel is by no means over, it's just not as frequent. She's different now, but remains a night owl. She writes when she should be sleeping...and while you probably are.
