I love shoes. I just got rid of half of my shoes and I still own 28 pair. Shoes, glorious shoes!
But my shoes have to be nice. When I left the corporate world, I tossed all my heels. Never to be worn again. My bunion-less feet are very happy with that. Working in a museum requires flat shoes. Why? Going up and down wooden stairs at LEAST a dozen times a day, standing on the exhibit floor for long periods of time, pushing cars, etc. Anyone who wears heels in our museum is insane.
I don’t have any nice looking boots, however. I would love to have a pair of these. I would SO love that!
Nice flat boots with those incredible tassels. What’s not to love?
Here are some shoes I would never wear (and my reasons why).
Your own personal hovercraft shoes. You can wear these while you walk across the English Channel. I like the color but that wide edge thing would trip me up for sure!
You’ve heard of training wheels for bikes? These are training pointe shoes for ballet dancers! She will be a swan in no time! With busted toes or a fractured foot!
Wear these shoes and you have your own wee barstools wherever you go! If someone gives you shit, just stomp down really hard and something in the foot bones is sure to break. Or maybe you could use these shoes instead of those massage thingies that look like turtles.
Really handy shoes for when you break your leg. They come with a built-in splint! And from the design hazard, breaking that leg is quite likely!
So there you have it. Must be a slow day for news when all I can muster up is some pictures of horrendous shoes. Some days are like that.
