Still nursing my knee, I am browsing Talbot's sale site. I always love to see their shoes at this time of year, because they are soooooo reasonable...and I like their shoes...Not much else in the store, but their shoes are casual and comfortable. Now that I am 68, I am ricketier than before. Even more so. So as I peruse, I check off the ones that I will never wear again..Here are a few:
The only place I will wear any kind of flip flop with be out of the pedicure salon or into rocky water..period. The others, tripping, falling, sliding out of...Not that I am going to go all Birkenstock now, but I choose my poisons with a bit more thought now, after paying a heavy price. Not only do the blue slingback shoes look messy (hey our heels are older now) but I seem to fall out of them. Same with the turquoise D'Orsay...love the look, but again, I fall out of them.
The gladiators? Well I wore them on the cobblestone streets of Rome and almost killed myself. Enough said for that style.
Of course I have fallen in so called stable shoes, but why risk it with these styles? Not very stylish if you are in a cast. (Now I sound like my mother)
