how about some shoes???

well i was reading a blog entry My feet!!! by a fellow blogger ilsgicemru and had a pondering thought!!!

what is it about shoes that people find so fascinating?

not just women...although i havent met a woman with less than 10 pair of too i have grown to know that some...have made it a point to have quite the collection.

i was talking to a guy friend...he was having trouble finding the right shoe for his outfit and he went out bought a pair that was almost identical to a pair he already had less shine..and the tongue was shorter...the buckle was smaller and slightly darker than just regular silver.(chrome i think) so its not just a matter of woman and a million pair...some guys are just as bad!!!

my dad...has one pair of shoes...make that 3...a dress he seem to not be able to get out of) and gym shoes. he always makes big deal when i get or even want to look at new shoes!!! the ironic part....i love to be barefoot. to feel all sorts of things on my between my toes!!! grass, new carpet, sun kissed pavement, cold bathroom floors, warm wet...tubs from the shower, sand, i could go on...

what about you and shoes???

i have less than ten pairs of shoes. i love shoes, but i do not buy more because i am anti-consumerist. i consider the 9 pairs of shoes i have to already be a supreme indulgence. i know plenty of people whose only shoes are hand me downs and plenty more who only have 1 or 2 pairs.

i know people just like that as well...i would think...that i should be the same....because i like to have "naked toes".....i will not pay more than 50 bucks for a pair of the same breath...i buy for comfort first...then style...when its not comfy...why buy it???

Up to last year I had the habit to buy a pair of shoes and use them 9 days out of 10 for a year or so. Then I would buy another one and repeat all over again, plus using the old ones until they really begged me to cease their life. So it was normal that I would jump into my Diadora sports to go to work, trekking, jogging, dinner out, day on the beach: concrete, rocks, snow, sand, soil, trees... they would eat faithfully every kind of surface and in return only asked me to be washed once a month. Then last summer, realising I had a closet full of old shoes, I entered a shopping craze and in a single shot bought five pair of new shoes. This is the first time I have so many!

Shoes make a powerfull statement. I have 3 pair of boots (the work Timbs and the timbs that I put on with a nice pair of khakis & a polo and a pr. of red lugz), 1 pr. of sneakers about 2 years old that I care for like the only pr. in the world. Then there are the dress shoes. I have the basic black "salesmen" shoes (these go with just about everything, not stylish but good for walking). Next is the Burgandy wingtips (perfect for wear with my green suit and sometimes my brown suit). Then there are the exotics 4 pr. of "blocks" I cant afford Gator or Ostrich so I wear snake or soft leather. They are black, blue, LT. Brown and Grey. These are for the few occasions where my wife and I go "Steppin Out". My wife on the other hand has so many shoes in the closet that she can rarely find the pair that she really wants. LOL

Shoes?....mmmmmmm. Well, I guess I have three pairs. My work shoes complete with steel hiking boots for vacations....and my dress shoes. The only time a new pair is on the docket is when the water starts coming in the holes in my soles.....I am what you say a rather casual guy who seldom dresses up.

Hey Sunshine *waving wildly*

For someone (me) who lives by the 3B's (barefoot, barelegged and braless) I have wayyyyy too many shoes. If I HAVE to wear shoes, they have to match what i'm wearing. I have winter shoes, summer shoes, casual shoes and dress shoes lol but I don't spend a fortune on most of them cuz i'm not a shoe ho! lol If I could..I'd go barefoot everywhere...but since I can't...I not wearing uggy ones!

Sin like you mean it!
