Friday Five?? I Never Did Monday Mission!
It’s Friday Five time already? Thanks for reminding me, Naomi – I truly would have forgotten all about it! These questions are nothing to make a stink about; they’re treading on thin ice. Those old shoes just love to wag their tongues and sing soul. Ok, I’ll stop. Gosh, I’d like to hear Imelda Marcos’ answers, or maybe Leona Helmsley’s. Shoot, my mom’s answers, for that matter. My shoe-happenings are pretty tame compared to theirs, I’d wager.
1. What size shoe do you wear?
Big ol’ size 11’s. But not wides, just regulars.
2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
How many do I own, or how many can I wear? I own around eight pair, including winter boots. Frankly, I’m comfortable (and barefoot) and I don’t feel like getting up to check!
3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, pumps, etc.)?
I prefer sandals first, the athletic kind with lots of cushion in the heel. Next to that, I like tennis shoes. I do have a pair of buffalo hide boots I adore.
4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite?
I love the bison boots I got at a warehouse sale at my old job. They’re made of soft, supple hide and it’s the most buttery leather I’ve ever felt. They’re the type of boots that lace up, and they go just a little above my ankles. There’s a rolled cuff at the top, which cushions them against my legs. They’re really well made, really comfortable, and really cute.
5. What’s the most you’ve spent on one pair of shoes?
Hmmmmm….Probably $60 for a pair of really good tennis shoes once. Even my bison leather shoes were only $32!
