I don't normally put on proper footwear when I go out. It has always been those comfy rubber shoes wherever, whenever. My feet are those that are hard to please. The size is quirky and the shape is archy, walking can be an arduous affair for two feet stuck in the wrong walking compartments. But when I find one that fits and pleases I tend to not wear them as often for fear of them wearing out too soon on me.
Yes, that is the daily confrontation of my soulful feet.
I am going to be very honest with you. I have only 3 pairs of shoes. One is an orange original crocs bought at only 3 pounds,(orange because that's the only colour left) another is a pair of running shoes cum travelling shoes and the last pair is kasut in which I wear my baju kurung with, a proper looking slippers with heels which have graced the last 5 rayas. That's about it. In a shoe cabinet in any households where the mum's shoes should dominate the shelving space is unlikely the case here.
Buying shoes is an emotional affair for me everytime. I don't get the liberty to choose a design that I like, it all depends on the pattern which has my size. And when I am lucky to find one that speaks to the heart, I get emotional the second time when the shoes are all worn out with my husband begging to throw them away. Sedih.
Anyway, I know I will be engulfed with emotions soon enough with these pair of shoes. They are my prized possessions at the moment, a companion during my travels and a comfort during my sole searching. I have been putting them on more now as I need them in my rounds at this lake. Kunun2 nya nak mengecikkan apa2 yang besar la, so kena la jalan lebih sikit.
Shoes are made for walking pun kan. So walking I am now.
