I received a pair of shoes as surprise gift last night. No occasions. I just happened to be the only person in our boarding house with a huge feet. My landlady who got this from a balikbayan box couldn’t find an heir having the same size XD.
Size 9 or 10 fits me. And it usually takes me long hours to find my perfect match. Hearing that the style I want is out of stock (because of the size) is upsetting. But when I select shoes or wardrobes, I often consider the “initial attraction” with what I want to buy. I have sets of preference on my mind – when it comes to color, it’s the neutral tone I usually pick, or a red.
Last week however, I glanced at this Zanea shoe (photo below) while on my way to a seminar in Makati. It was “like-at-first-sight.” This pair was on sale at 400 pesos. And I was assured that we were meant to be because there’s a pair that fits me. Total buying time: 15 minutes!
I really prefer wedged shoes. I’m 5’6 tall, and I could manage to walk with 2-3 inched heels and not more than that; or else I’d either intimidate guys for having super height. (Will you feel that way if I’m taller than you?).
I’m not really good at wearing stilletos. I’m waiting for my fairy-god-mother to train me how to walk with one. I don’t wear shoes to impress but I’m really after comfort.
They say shoe preferences say something about a lady’s personality. Well, that’s another story.
