Forget shoes. They don’t interest me much. In fact, I can name all the shoes I own without having to go and look in my front hall:
- 2 pairs of dress shoes that I leave at work; one grey, one black, both are flats
- 2 pairs of nice sandals for work; one teal, one goldy-bronze (currently at home until it’s summer again)
- 1 pair of teal and purple plaid all-stars (currently at work as back-up shoes)
- 1 pair of old black flip-flops
- 1 pair hiking sneakers
- 1 pair hiking boots
I wear my hiking sneakers all the freaking time, even at work (yes, even though I have dress shoes there, I never wear them unless I’m going to an important meeting in the same building). I’ve been wearing my boots a lot lately because it’s been snowy and my sneakers are getting beat up from being abused by me for a year. I’m just not really into pretty shoes and such. I like sneakers and I like to be comfortable and I like to spend my money on other things.
Slippers, on the other hand, are something that I have been starting to slowly collect. It gets cold in Edmonton and my apartment isn’t the warmest (not even after I seal drafts in the windows, etc.). I currently have three pairs: the dirty white ones are wool, super warm and a gift from my cousin last Christmas; the blue ones are just random fleece ones that are good for mid to late fall temperatures; and, the grey ones are also fleecy and warmish. I wear slippers almost year round, so I want a few more pair (some lighter ones for late spring and some very light ones for cool summer nights).
