I started getting into the heavy stuff when we began stocking two other brands: Born and Dansko. Every employee was given a pair of Danskos. It was then that I crossed over. These shoes were...my first. After that I started my downward spiral. Born shoes with Dryz footbed (translation: most squishy, comfy footbed EVER) became my new winter shoes. Lace-ups in soft pink leather. Another free pair of Danskos that go great with jeans. Casual walking sandals. Brown sandals. Black sandals. COMFORTABLE HEELS! (At this point imagine me with wild eyes and a rapid pulse.)
Yesterday I realized I was out of control. In one week's time I had purchased/received three pairs of shoes:
Running shoes to train for the marathon, a pair of navy Danskos the store is closing out (free again), and the gorgeous brown heels I ordered from Born a few weeks ago. Are they not beautiful? Are they not charming? "Yea, and the most joyous to the sole" (spelling intended).
I'm considering a 12 step program to conquer my addiction. I'll be happy to, so long as I can do the stepping in the shoes I love.
