Fact or Fallacy: You can hardly find a woman who can resist the urge to look through a show window of a shoe store, or go inside a shoe store especially during a sale.
Fact or Fallacy: Shoe stores are filled with women when there is a sale.
Fact or Fallacy: Most women own five or more pairs of shoes.
Since I do not drive yet, I just take the bus to Honolulu unless bana-bear is here to take me. And because there is quite a distance from home to the bus stop, wearing high heels is no longer practical. I think I also developed bunion on my left foot which makes it uncomfortable for me to wear closed and/or high-heeled shoes. Out of necessity (and not really by choice), I had to give up my wedges and mules for a more comfortable ballet flats, loafers and flip flops. Hawaii is very casual so I love wearing my Havaianas for daily informal outings to the mall.
My favorite comfortable shoes is the ballet flats of Gentle Souls (Gabby) by Kenneth Cole which I bought from Nordstrom at Ala Moana Center. The very light and soft leather cushion and lining is gentle and suitable for my sensitive achy foot.
I miss wearing the fashionable high-heeled sandals but for now, I had to content myself with the not-s0-sexy, yet, comfy shoes.
