Just an idea that came to mind today as my feet were really sore and I didn't even look at the pretty shoes in the sales. (Sorry Sailor, it's a girl thing!)
I am vertically challenged in a sea of giants.
I am getting older and therefore dress more "sensibly".
But I was always able to have beautiful shoes.
Pretty red shoes
Pretty black shoes
Not sensible shoes
Shoes with heels and tiny straps.
Twenty percent have ongoing residual pain and numbness.
Twenty percent can no longer wear pretty shoes.
Expensive sensible shoes to control the ongoing foot pain.
No more pretty straps and heels.
No more bare feet on a hot day.
But the good thing is I am here to feel the discomfort.
Sore feet - better than the alternative.
