I have a love-love relationship with shoes. That is one thing I cannot stop buying. I wonder if anyone ever did some psychological research on the relationship between a woman's brain and shoes. Let me google it really quick...nope, nothing really. The closest thing I found was this quote - "Dutch brain scientists have discovered that when a woman sees cute shoes affixed to Sarah Jessica Parker's feet, her medial orbitofrontal cortex goes bonkers." The 'bonkers' could be due to SJP or the shoes, who knows? I just know that for me, it's the shoes.
My mom usually says to me about once a month, "New shoes AGAIN?" What she doesn't realize or she just refuses to realize is that she does that same thing too. Like mother, like daughter.
The shoes don't have to be ultra high or sexy or expensive to give my brain activity. These Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi Tops in purple and black give the same effect. It gives me a huge grin when I look at them. It could be that I look like a teenager wearing them, but hey, I didn't have these when I was a teen, so I'm making up for it now. I am proud of picking such a pretty pair for my first hi tops.
I love everything about them, the double tongue, the white stitching, the metallic purple against the black canvas, the purple trim. Shoe-love defined.
