Buy the Shoes

Shoes make me happy.
I'm obsessed.

No matter what, young or old... male or female... you have to admit that shoes are really a big part of our lives.  We want them to fit comfortably if we are walking or exercising.  We want them to match our outfit (somewhat) because that makes us feel put together and we want to keep our feet safe, because we need them for a very long time.

Week #41 LIFE'S simple pleasure - shoes
LIFE is always better with a nice pair of shoes. 
Of course.... the right shoes for the all occasions.  You wouldn't wear flip flops, thongs, or sandals when there is 6" of snow on the ground (well some dummy might).  And you wouldn't wear a pair of running shoes, tennis shoes, sneakers or gym shoes with a prom dress (although some might, for the ultimate comfort, rather than fashion) And you wouldn't wear a comfortable old pair of clogs, mules or clodhoppers to a professional job interview (unless your really don't want the job).
There are so many types and styles of shoes:  boot, cleat, slipper, blue suade, loafer, platform, pump, penny loafer, high heel, open toed, wing tip, leather, .... each generation has their name for certain styles.  And styles come and go as part of a fashion statement!  For some, comfort is the only way to go, and for others.... they will pay a weeks salary for a current designer shoe!
Never judge a person until you've walk a mile in their shoes .... then you will be a mile away and have their shoes!
Sometimes we don't take the time to think of LIFE'S simple pleasures... it can be simple, like smelling the flowers or taking a moment to take a deep breath outside in the sunshine.  Even something like our shoes can make us happy!
Since all great journeys start with a single step, you should probably have on a cute pair of shoes!
