Friday Five: Feets
1. What is your favorite footwear at this time in your life? Always SAS shoes or sandals with the left foot built up 3/8" (because the left hip replacement left my leg short by that much. Bah)
3. What kind of shoes did you wear in your childhood? Tennies? Mary Janes?
There were no tennies when I was a child - they hadn't been invented. Yes, I am ancient. We wore only leather shoes - that was our only choice. Capezios were a favorite for school and something disgusting and shiny, like leather Mary Janes for church. As a teenager, I loved 3" heels and wore them whenever possible. When I had a tall boyfriend, I even wore them to class in college. Ruined my feet, they did.
4. How do you feel most comfortable? Barefoot, flip-flops, boots, or what? Barefoot is great but I keep the house too cool for it to be comfortable. Slippers are nice, or sandals, even with socks.
Growing up, we never wore shoes except in the winter, at school or church. The minute we got home from school, the shoes came off! Trees are much easier to climb barefoot, but we had to wear shoes to roller skate.
5. What kind of socks do you like, if any? Very soft, with no elastic in the ankle to cut off circulation (I told you I was ancient)
Bonus: Anything you want to share about feet or footwear. I insist that my shoes NEVER hurt my poor feet. And that includes hurting this bunion I am ignoring.
