Dual shoe funeral

Last week, two of my favorite pairs of shoes succumbed to wear and tear, beyond repair.

Two beautiful pairs of round-toed pumps.

The gray shoes have been my go-to shoes for the last few years… travel, tradeshows, quick trips to the store… more interesting than basic black, but just as versatile. And so comfortable! But alas… This:

The back of the heel has split.

Also, the elastic in the heel has let go, so they don't stay on.

I probably would have let the split at the back seam go, if I could actually keep the shoe on my foot while walking. But it’s reached the point where I’m endangering myself if I continue to wear these beloved babies.

The other pair, cute little polka dot pumps with cherry red heels, only cost $20, so I had limited expectations for their longevity. They’ve lasted about 3 years, so I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth. But again, they no longer stay on my feet.

The side seams have split on both shoes.

You know what that means. TIME FOR SHOE SHOPPING!!!

Tim keeps teasing me that since I’ll be working at home, I can go barefoot all day and no one will know. I’m not going to an office daily, so I won’t need shoes.

Blasphemy.
