Wikipedia says ‘A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. TOSH!!!
Shoes are like chocolate, they are delicious, they vary in colour, flavour, type and style. There are cheaper varieties, but, like chocolate, you always know when you have had the most expensive!
Like chocolate, you know overuse is not always good for you, especially overuse in the long term!
Like chocolate, having too much can make you feel guilty (at one point I owned 146 pairs of footwear).
But, like chocolate, they draw you to them in the shop, they warm your soul (sole) on a cold day, they ‘insist’ that you buy them, take them home and care for them, they comfort you on a bad day and they always make you feel a little decadent.
All mine are looked after, they live in their original boxes and have their names written on the end (practical when trying to find them). My latest haven’t been worn yet…. but I’m out tonight….
I take photos of them and put them on my blog………. Obsessed?……. not me!!!!
