Sensible Shoe Family
Some ladies spend a lot of money on fancy shoes, designer variety. Not me, I have been a sensible shoe wearer for all of my life. Good room for the toes, heels that are healthy and not harmful. Somehow that seems to translate into a shoe that my mother referred to as "nuns shoes". The kind of shoe a nun might have worn in the 1950's. My first Earth shoes were a delight to me, but not exactly chic. I wore them with pride all through the 1970's. In the 1980's I graduated to Birkenstock's and wore them until we started going to the Mennonite church. The shoes of that decade were black lace up SAS shoes. Now that those days are over I am back to Kalso Earth Shoes, not the ones found in Wal-Mart, but the negative heel variety. Some of the Earth Shoes are quite cute but I opted for what I had known 3 decades ago. Funny thing is, Melissa has some of the Earth Shoes in the same style as I have, but recently she purchased these cute Earth shoes with patches on them. Makes mine look every bit the "nun shoe". They do look pretty snazzy with tie dye socks or my wild hand knit socks that come out of the sock drawer when the weather turns chilly.
My feet have appreciated the years of healthy shoe wearing. They are healthy and strong.
My new Earth Shoes arrived yesterday in the mail.... Melanie had to give them a try and see if she wants some too. Just one big healthy shoe wearing family !
I call these shoes, Healthy Chic !
