The average woman has 30 pairs of shoes, according to the book Fashion 101, A Crash Coarse in Clothing by Erika Stalder. Boy am I behind the times. I have a whopping total of 7 pairs of shoes/boots that I regularly wear – mostly walking and gardening shoes.
I *want* to have dressier shoes to wear with my sporty tank dresses and summer skirts, but I hate high heels. Or anything I can’t walk 3 miles in comfortably. If I’m going to pay good money for shoes, I want to be able to be comfortable.
I recently purchased some cute little Merrell ballet slipper type flats that have a diagonal strap across the instep.
I wouldn’t want to walk 3 miles in them, but they are really cute to wear with sporty tank dresses and summer skirts walking around the neighborhood or going out for a bite to eat. I’d say they are cute enough for women even under 50. My 19-year-old daughter wants to wear them, but I’ve already given her all my high-heeled shoes, so I feel justified in having this ONE pair of dressier shoes just for me.
