This could be just me getting older, but I’ve been noticing how many crappy pairs of shoes I own. Shoes that give zero support to feet and shoes that look like they’ve got no soul… sole 🙂
I’ve been slowly trying to revamp my shoe collection while still having access to casual and supportive shoes. Have you looked in your closet lately? Frankly, mine was a mess of crappy shoes and it took some foot swelling and soreness for me to get my act together and get some new shoes. Have you thought about doing the same?
I’m usually a big fan of Toms, combat boots, Birkenstocks and Mizuno runners – two of four aren’t necessarily that fun to wear. I’m 24 and I feel like an old lady saying this but, I’m not sacrificing foot pain for fashion… Not that I intend to walk around in my high lighter pink Mizuno runners and blue jeans, but I’m working slowly towards a shoe change. Here is a list of “exchanges”, as I like to call them so no one can give me grief about shopping, that I’ve made to my shoe selection.
Tom flats – Dr. Scholls Flats, $25, Wal-Mart
Flats – Athletic Converse, $20 and Keds Mocassins, $20, Soft Moc Outlet.
Mizuno Wave Sayonara (Worn out) – Mizuno Wave Inspire, $150, Running Room.
Shoes can be expensive and that’s why I’ve procrastinated on this endevour. But once I started experiencing some foot discomfort I knew I needed to suck it up and drop some pay cheques on new shoes.
Shoes for thought!
