I don't get it

I went looking for some sandals this evening. I only went to 2 places, but one was a shoe warehouse. Frankly, it was obscene how many different types of shoes are out there! I mean, people, they are SHOES! You should be looking at my face, not my toes!

I want something comfortable. And I even tried on a pair of Sketchers that I liked...but I couldn't figure out if I could pull them off. Really, I'm about twice the age of your general high school sophomore, and the last thing I need as a volunteer with high schoolers is another reason for them to mock me. I know better than to try to dress too young, so maybe sometimes I don't stay in style as much as I could because I don't want to try too hard.

So, at my age could I pull off these Sketchers? The world may never know, since I ended up paying less than $6 for a pair of sandals that I hope will get me through the year. OK, I was proud that I paid so little for them, but maybe they were on sale because they are very unhip. Ah, well, I don't care too much if they feel good on my feet, and they don't make my size 10s look like boats. (Yes, I have a firm foundation.)

Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed my rant about shoes! I know I have.

Here's a pair I've had my eyes on...


They were $41.99 when I first started looking at them, so I've hesitated, but now that they're down to $21, I think I'll get them. I don't know how "hip" they are, but I don't think they're grossly out of style. The new balance/dunham brand are always comfortable too and seem to last a while.
