Have you ever had a shoe that you liked so much that you didn't want to get rid of them, despite the fact that they are now treadless and worn so thin that a mouse fingernail could shred them? Even when you eventually come to the conclusion that a new shoe must be purchased, you hold out because you can't find the exact shoe you want? The shoe you actually want was purchased for you about 3 years ago by a friend and they don't sell them anymore. The shoe you actually want is currently (barely) on your foot. That was my dilemma.

This morning I decided to go to the website of the store where there original shoes were purchased, just to take a brief look. The shoe fairy, knowing I'm notoriously lazy when it comes to shopping, granted my only true shoe wish. There, on the front page of the women's shoe section, were my dream shoes. (Please cue Dream Lover by Mariah Carey. FINE, I'll do it for you.)

Here are my tried and true, brown, gold, and blue shoes:

Here are soon to be new, brown, gold, and blue shoes:

I plan to play this when I buy my new shoes. (P.S. They are on sale at JC Penney and on their site here.)


  1. Wow. I love the contrast of colors of white flesh, green socks w/ black border and brown, gold and blue shoes. Women are truly crazy over shoes, I just didnt think it was tennis shoes.

  2. 1. Those are my Yoda socks. The Force was with me.

    2. I actually am not shoe crazy. I have about two or three pairs of shoes and I have had these sneakers for years. I just like what I like. Even my husband asked why I didn't want to switch things up.
