Why, do you ask?
Look at the shoes I just bought:
They’re Easy Spirits. I had to have something more comfortable to wear on my walk to and from my job. Look at them! They’re bulky, they’re dorky…they’re NOT ATTRACTIVE.
But they are like slippers! I can slide right into them and they have a lovely zipper! So I don’t have to fuss with laces!
Even the girls at the Easy Spirit store had to search for something appropriate to say when I tried them on. “They’re nerdy, aren’t they?” I asked.
“Well, they’re no fashion statement,” one of them admitted.
But they rang up as $10 less than the already-listed sales price. So to me, it was proof from God that I had made the right decision.
The only thing that bothers me is that they belong the same shoe-tree, shall we say, as most of Wiggles’ triple-wide, style-free, slab-like footwear. Go ahead, Wiggles, sputter in indignation. You know it’s true.
What’s next? Elastic waist pants?
