I miss shoes

Oct 19, 2016 7:41 PM

Haveing a rough night chest pain a headache and all. And I'm thinking of various things . And I see a shoe commercial. I used to kill in my shoes. I loved all types of boots wedges and high leg shoes and boots. Now I live in my sandles ( flip flops) and for winter I get i have a flat boot I wear with everything. I miss my shoes.

Oh no that's not good at all, I hope that your chest pain and headache start to ease up soon for you xx sending you {{{HUGS}}} xx
I know what you mean with missing all the shoes and boots that you used to wear. I used to be able to wear wedges and kitten heeled shoes and boots, I could never wear high heels as my ankles "drop" in them.
I've tried to make the best out of the flats I wear nowadays like one of my most favourite pairs of ankle boots are black and have a glittery silver lepod print on them with bright pink laces. I have a pair of black and a pair of brown faux leather wider calf knee high boots (both flats). I have a couple of cute ballerina pumps, a couple of pairs of flip flops and a couple of pairs of different print and colours of canvas pumps.
It's not the same as I used to be able to wear and I'm gutted that because of where my pain is and some of the meds I have to take I get vertigo quite often and my lack of balance, which has never been the best, I fall over in my flats but anything higher I sprain my ankles and the fall hurts a hell of a lot more! Plus they kill my feet.
My only problem with my flats at the moment is my 10 year old daughter is now in the same size shoe as me and she likes to "borrow" mine!!!!
Have a look around if you can and find some boots and shoes that are slightly different, bolder and more colourful than what you wear now to see if that will help a little. I know it's not the same but it might help a little xx

Bahaha, sezzy! You reminded me of my everyday life with my daughter and my shoes, when I can't find mine I go to her room and sure enough there they are! I can't really wear anything but sneakers because of neuropathy in my feet.

Oh me too!! I love pretty flip flops with built in arch supports then switch to knee high boots almost everyday from Oct to May....but gosh do I covet the sexy heels my friends strut around in!!

I'm sorry your hurting.
I've never understood the shoe thing. I have always been a runners girl and probably always will. Runners and hoodies. And I hate shoe shopping, nothing ever fits. I have one brand i can wear and when i get something else they hurt my knees and hips.
Most women i know will emotional shop and get shoes, i went to the greenhouse and picked up a bunch of little plants last time I emotional shopped.
Hope you are feeling a little better today
