Killer Shoes

Sunday, December 12, 2010
I love these shoes. I bought them in a hurry last week because I needed them. I liked them. They'll look good with jeans and they're summery, practical, quick to put on and go with a lot. Not to mention that they add several inches to my height.

I wore them out last night with my jeans and a black tunic. We were going to the annual piano recital put on by our children's piano teacher.
I slipped them on. They looked great. They felt great.
For the first few minutes.
By the time we parked the car, my feet were already regretting the choice. Angry red lines were embedded into the top of my foot. I hobbled like an old woman from the car to the house, trying desperately not to look like an old woman. Do you know how uncomfortable that can be?
During the recital, I casually slipped them off, hoping that nobody would notice I was there in bare feet. When we left I cringed as I plunged my feet back into their instruments of torture, and hobbled back out to the car, where I threw them off.

It has been many years since I've had to wear shoes in. As I sit here at the table I have the shoes on my feet, hoping that they will stretch, stretch, stretch. I cook in them. I sew in them. I watch tv in them.
It looks like I'll have to be content with last summer's shoes for a little while longer.

I like the look of them too, but don't you hate that you have to wear the darn things in?

My hint: fill a bucket/bath with warm water. Stand in the water with your shoes on. Wear the shoes until they are dry. Yes, it takes ages, yes you will look like an idiot wearing them out BUT they mold perfectly to your feet and you will never get a blister again!

That's a great idea - I'm going to try it out. Thanks!
