Shoes, shoes and shoes... treading with sneakers is still one of the best

I have several collections of shoes - most are from selective yet necessary buying, while some are results of impulse buying. There's this pair I used only once - on the wedding of our friends here. There are these two pairs I used when I was pregnant but didn't feel like using them again after I gave birth. I have this pair of cheap orange sandals I used last summer but it didn’t last that long because one side of one shoe started to tear off and I was not able to find time to fix it. While there's this pair of slip-in shoes I bought also during the time of my pregnancy that I use until now. It's a regular wear for all seasons as I can wear it with short stockings on summer and with socks on winter. I liked it so much that even if the color starts to fade, they're still regularly intact in my feet. There's this slip-in high heeled favorite pair of mine that's now in storage because I can already feel the water getting in on my way to office during the rainy days.

Wanting to change image, my sister urged me to buy a formal office shoes back home but it turned out to be of one usage only because it hurt my feet a lot and I didn't want to use it anymore. (I am planning to sell it at a discounted to some friend's friend.) Forget about changing the looks, I'd rather enjoy the comfort of moving around. Got also this pair of authentic Macanna striped multicolored shoes I haven't worn for few months now. It's time to bring out of from the box now that it's cold. It'll keep the feet warm. There's also this pair of branded rubber shoes bought together with hubby's now almost worn-out shoes.' haven't used it for more than a year now so I might as well sell it out. Hey, I also have this trendy shoes I brought from SM Baguio - twas used less than ten times.Another one I almost forgot on the list is the pair of boots I bought from a friend selling goods from the Philippines. It's a rugged type shoes and I love to wear it with jeans. I couldn't simply pass these pairs to my sisters as I have the largest feet compared to all of them, including my mom. Definitely, I can't pass them to my only brother (err, I was able to pass him a pair of rubber shoes I brought in LK but I don't think the rubber shoes now will fit him).

It doesn't end there... On Saturday, my feet ached a lot after a long walk around the shopping areas of Taipei City I went to the department store and you guess it right, I bought a new pair of shoes... this time, it's a pair of sneakers - brand unknown, twas on sale (from 990NTD to 560NTD) - color is white with a touch of orange. I am wearing it right now and this is actually the reason that drove me to blog about me and my shoes. It feels so good moving around and nah, it brings out the youth in me, lol.

It may appear that I am a shoe collector but you won't say that if you see my younger sister's collection - she's imeldific...
