Tell me these new shoes aren't just soooooo bloody cool!
I finally know what all the fuss is about with women and shoes - albeit, with flatties and not stillettoes. Still, I'd rather spend days lost inside a giant stationery warehouse than a Milano factory any day.
It's been 3 years since I last bought a pair of shoes. This is them.
I never really liked them, especially seeing as they were bent on such a curve that they'd go around corners 3 blocks before the rest of me did (!) but they were the only pair of shoes I'd ever bought that were more comfortable on than off.
I kinda gave up buying shoes because I was never any good at it. I have always been the type to buy one pair of practical winter shoes (usually look like school shoes) that I end up wearing in Summer too. It's only in the past decade or so that I have insisted on trying on the LEFT foot too, because it's one whole size bigger than my right. Which makes for a very hard fit. Thus, my toes are quite knarly from ill-fitting shoes.
But these babies! They make my heart sing when I wear them. They arrived off Ebay yesterday. I still can't stop walking around with my chin to my chest looking at them while I walk. They are even better than I had hoped, considering I am very bad at buying shoes, and these ones I didn't even get to try on first!
I have gone from feeling (and looking) like Seinfield in his 1980's white shoes and poxy jeans fashion sense, to feeling so totally hip. And me. They even put an extra spring in my step! Even the soles are cool. Look.
So I guess I should mention they are Converse Jack Purcell limited edition shoes and this is not a paid presentation!
P.S. I got another layout publication notice!
P.P.S. I love these shoes!
