shoes

I am not a shoe person. One of the sopranos has a shoe collection to rival Imelda Marcos. I tend to buy one pair of black dress shoes and then wear them until they fall apart and buy another.

Yesterday, the choir did a concert. I realized within about five minutes that I needed different shoes; by the end of the concert, I could not feel my feet. The Imelda Marcos lady, wearing four inch heels, still had high notes and could dance. Clearly, I am missing something...

I do the same thing. I'm going on year three with the same (albeit comfortable) pair of sandals. I tried to buy another pair (via LandsEnd) but they did not fit. Sigh. I do have a pair of very uncomfortable pair of black heels you could have. I bought them years ago when I used to have to attend donor functions. I no longer have to and they just gather dust. I will warn you: they are very uncomfortable. But - one must suffer for fashion, right?

I guess I should count my blessings--at least with my recent bout of bleeding blisters, I could feel my feet. Boy could I!

I have a lot of shoes, dating back to before children, and still somehow I'm always looking for that perfect pair of black pumps.
