Week 2

Good shoes take you good places!!!

img_6356Shoes are something that most people where every day, yet do we really give it much thought. As a child one of my favorite memories is running barefoot through my grandparent’s walnut orchard. I can still feel the soft dirt as it would wedge its way between my toes, I can feel the sharp edges of the sticks as they poked my feet and feel the condensations on the leaves that had fallen from the trees. Fast-forward to today, I find myself in a world that is confined to shoes. I know that apart to diamonds being a girl’s best friend, a pair of Manolo Blanc’s is right up there. Yet, I don’t get the craze. Did I miss out on that part of developing into a woman. The infinite undying love for a pair of shoes. I tried to place myself in another’s shoes and see the world through their eyes, to try and better understand their love for shoes and what it meant to them. What I came to realize is that our shoes tell a story. A story of who we are where we have been and where we will go. And depending upon the shoe a different story will be told. As for me, my story is not one of designer shoes rather, my shoes or shall I say lack of shoes, tells a story of adventure, travel, and a desire to walk across the world. So next time you put on a pair of shoes, consider what story you will be telling.
