Yesterday I wore my new tennis shoes.
All. Day. Long. The longer I wore them the better my feet felt.
I still can’t believe it. And of course I am wearing them again today!
This is remarkable for me because I have feet that often hurt. I can’t wear most shoes. They hurt the ball of my foot, or they rub my heel, or they pinch my toes. Or they don’t give support to my very high arch.
These new shoes are amazing!
I bought them back in the late fall when I also purchased some tan walking shoes. I got those because I was tired of wearing white tennis shoes in the winter. (Even though I don’t often wear stylish shoes, I do not like wearing white shoes in the fall and winter.)
Those tan walking shoes (yes, they are really tennis shoes in disguise) were very comfortable and I wore them more than I probably should have. But I can get so much more done at school when my feet don’t hurt.
Like yesterday. Those new tennis shoes helped me be much more productive around the house!
So I have adjusted to life with frumpy shoes, trading cute feet for comfort and joy. I have short term wear shoes for dressier occasions, and I have found a few pairs that have some bit of style for all day school wear. But there’s a part of me that cringes when I think about what my shoes look like.
Then I saw this ad in the paper:
That’s the name of their store. I wonder what is really inside? Could I dare to believe that there is truth in advertising these days? Should I even halfway think that it is possible to have cute AND comfy shoes?
There’s nothing left to do but go there and find out. I have a feeling these shoes could be pricey. But that’s OK. If the store name is true (if the shoe fits…) it will be SO worth it!
