The topic this week at the Madhouse is "Shoes".
Before I got married (in 1993), I was all about my shoes. I didn't blink twice about spending my parents' money on $90 sandals.
After I got married, I discovered the joy of $7 sandals, although I will admit to spending $130 on a pair of Naot's. Then, another well over $100 on other Naots.
These are my faves:
Only I chose the brown ones. They are SO comfortable. I ordered the Evil Twin a pair of men's Naots and he says they feel like slippers, but look like dress shoes.
I couldn't help myself, so I ordered another pair of sandals.
So, there you have it. I'm a Naot addict. I am all about the comfort level, but still want to seem relatively stylish. I don't own - ok, well, I DO own tennis shoes, but only for my whitewater rafting trip. They'll never be worn again.
Here's my shameful secret: When we went to Disney World in May '09, my sandals were cutting into my little toe on the left. (Hey, no one ever said being stylish was easy or pleasant), so the Evil Twin bought me a pair of (actually) really cute Croc sandals with the Mickey Mouse logo on them and that's what I wore most of the week. I ended up with many random band-aids from the massive walking, but that would happen in any shoe. At least the crocs kept my feet dry and comfy.
I still keep shoes from the days I had an office job and I keep shoes for sentimental reasons. But, honestly, I rotate about 3 pair at any given time depending on the weather. I'm no Imelda Marcos these days. :-)
PS. Most of the time, I'm barefoot. I don't even wear shoes or socks or slippers around the house! ;-)
Happy Wednesday, hooligans!
