Too Much Shoe Love

I got new shoes this past weekend. They're not for summer, but they were a buck. How can anyone pass down shoes for a dollar, especially when they're Rocket Dogs?

No one.*

With my awesome shoe find still in recent memory, I'll confess that I love shoes and own way more than I wear. DSW and Off Broadway shoe fill that shoe-need in a way that the mall shoe stores can't touch.

This holds true to the mall next door where last week they opened up their seventh shoe store. This mall isn't big - it has about twenty stores and lists T Mobile as a flagship, so why so many? Mall moguls think we need two shoe stores dedicated to sneakers and two others for tacky, overpriced flats.

And that B Dalton where I encountered B Lite? Now a shoe store called FURY - home of the ten dollar shoe.

For those with a love shoes, come and confess. Talk about how a pair of hot pink crocodile booties turns your head. Share stories about how your Chucks flow like a waterfall when you open your closet. And is there such a thing as too much shoe shopping?




*The exception of course is if you have bad feet and can't wear their awesomeness.

  1. I bought a pair of blue patent leather python print Danskos this weekend.

    That was, of course, the fourth pair of shoes I tried on. The others didn't fit right. Stupid difficult feet.

  2. I saw those online last week. That you bought them doesn't surprise me. You do have a lot of shoes, perhaps you should take a picture of your shoe wall and I can write about it one day.

  4. Girl, you better preach! And those shoes are too cute. And for a dollar! You got me over here all kinds of excited for you.

    You ever need a shoe story, you let me know. And yes, I too own way more shoes than I can even wear. That's why I wear them around my house when I get home from work. That way ALL of my beautiful shoes get love.

    Here's today's little shoe adventure:

    So I got lost on my way to buy dog food and ended up in Nordstrom Rack. (I now know the exact location of the 8th wonder of the world.) The shoe department LITERALLY took my breath away. I had to stop in one of the aisles and calm myself. Even made a friend in shoe heaven. He better cough up that employee discount the next time I stalk, I mean see him. And after telling myself last weekend that I need to cut it out with the orange clothes, I bought these. Don't even get me started on the clothes.

    MM - Maybe you should send me a picture of your shoe collection as well.
