I admit I’m not a huge shoe person; the only shoes I’ve ever loved were my floral Dr Martens when I was five years old. Give me those back any day and I would sure be one happy girl.
So right at the bottom of my empty shoe heart, I found three shocks. Purely for your pleasure at my inadequacy to find a nice pair of shoes, here are my three shoe sins…
Graffiti Skater/Sneaker Boots by Faith
I bought these on clearance for £5.00 when I was sixteen. I have NEVER worn them. I was a little caught up in the emo scene to put it politely. This is so typical me, buy something and never wear it, yet let it sit in my house for a lifetime.
Blue ‘bubble’ shoes by General Public
I call these my bubble shoes, they are of the weirdest texture and don’t really have a particular style. I have worn them probably four times and that was whilst I was still a teenager, so forgive me not for finally parting with these bizarre beasts.
Yellow Trainers by Alberto Guardiani
You know I bought these on clearance many years ago from TKMaxx. I paid the mighty sum of £2.00. And I have never been able to get that lost £2.00 back. These have been listed on eBay and taken many a time to the car boot, but I have yet found anyone mad enough to buy them. I don’t quite know what I was thinking when I made that deadly purchase all that time ago.
Off to the shoe recycling I go. And I will continue to mourn my terrible taste in footwear.
