I’ve been meaning for a while to do another shoe review. But you know…to be honest…I’ve been living in old and well-loved shoes lately. For the past few weeks, I’ve been striding around comfy in a pair of Converse classics I bought years ago. Literally years ago. And they’ve been everywhere with me–all through college, all through working with newspapers, all through lots of photography, all through Mexico and Arizona and back to Oregon. They have pink laces that I replaced the white ones with. And I’m surprised the soles haven’t fallen off yet (although the inside’s quite torn apart). But I can’t find the gall to actually give them up.
Same with one of my first pairs of Danskos. I got these babies years ago, too. So long ago, in fact, that I have NO idea what they’re technical name is. The best I can find is “Dansko Mary Jane Clog.” Errr….
You can tell how often they’ve been worn; they’ve got scuffs all over them, and the tread’s getting thin. But they’re fun and casual and extremely reliable shoes. And I heart them! With the classic Dansko comfort and all. These babies are what got me hooked on Danskos…fo lyfe!
So, people…what are your favorite comfort shoes? Not necessarily just shoes that are comfortable…but shoes that make you feel at ease because you’ve known and loved them so long?
