Spring shoesOh, yes — come to mama! Never mind that a recent Shoes for springFacebook quiz pegged me as classic ballet-flat-wearing.  (Read “boring.”) When I saw these shoes at our local mall earlier this week, I had the classic symptoms of shoe lust: Sweaty palms, increased heart rate, rapid breathing. Or maybe that was from the Spring shoesburrito I’d just eaten. Doesn’t matter. I fell in love with almost every pair of these totally inappropriate and probably wildly uncomfortable shoes. And actually, I believe I had a pair exactly like the bright and shiny pink pumps about 20 years ago — didn’t we all? Sadly, common sense prevailed and I moved on empty-handed. But I can’t get those purple python platforms out of my head. And those brown strappy sandals. And the animal-print pumps. So take that, stupid classic-ballet-flats Facebook quiz.

  1. Fun shoes to look at and enjoy in the shop window. I totally agree, probably would not find something to wear with…

  2. Oh, I love shoes. Yes, I also had a pair of bright pink pumps. The thing about shoes is you can get away with young and crazy ones at almost 50 and over 50. Shoes are the fountain of eternal youth. My grandmother was wearing pumps and high heels into her 80’s. She is my role model.;-)

  3. If I wore those, I would either trip and break my hip or not be able to walk for several weeks..I hated heels even when I could wear them. I like sensible old lady shoes..firmly planted on the ground! 🙂

  4. Thank you all so much for the kind words. I love thinking of shoes as the fountain of eternal youth, although most of these would probably send me to the podiatrist.

  5. I think you need to go back and get at least one pair, for occasions that you can spend most of your time sitting down with one elegant ankle crossing the other.

    I don’t think I’ve ever had bright pink shoes, and now I feel deprived.

  6. Eryl — What a great idea! Love it. And you need to run out and get a pair of bright pink patent-leather pumps right now. But Kathy, I think you are exactly right. Sigh. And thank, Pseudo, for stopping by!
