Awfully fond of you


Further proof that I am a sucker for the knitting of the sock: I may have been influenced in the purchase of these shoes by their potential for showing off hand-knitted socks.

In my defence, they were discounted. And more importantly I have one other pair of Skechers which I have practically lived in since I bought them. So comfortable, largely because unlike most fashion sneakers, they have a decent arch support. (These are less sneaker-ish than the others but have the exact same sole).

That seems like a perfectly reasonable criterion for buying shoes. I'm thinking I need me some new shoes, too...

Julie said...

AAAAH! I want a pair of those!!!

Come to visit. I've got a Sketchers outlet nearby. We'll go shopping.

Because of my foot size and width, I generally hate shopping for shoes.

(It's depressing to start out in the cute shoes and walk down the row to my size, watching the selection dwindle down to "Your Choice of Tan Boats!")

But I love your socks!

Oh yes! Where do I get me a pair of those Olivia? Email me!

I love those. My Katie bought a similar pair made by dansko that show off her socks well.

I firmly believe that they don't count as a shoe purchase if they were on sale. After all, you didn't pay full price for them. And besides, shoes are always practical. Especially if they show off your fabulous socks!

Alwen, I feel your pain. I have large, skinny feet. The only people I ever encounter in my section of the shoe store are named Olga and seem to need a chat about performance-enhancing substances.

Thanks for the comment, Olivia! I'll try to keep your advice in mind, but there's just so much potential there...
