I once did a parody of Desiderata, called Desideprada. , it was all about shoes. I thouight it was pretty clever myself.
My friend's mother used to collect shoe ornamentals. Porcelin shoes, shoes in all styles and colors.
You will never find more than a few pairs of shoes in my house. I don't much like shoes. The wideness o my foot prevents me from wearing the most stylish of shoes, and I am left with a poor selection. Right now I own a pair of sandles, and a pair of those rubbery things with holes in them, that I've forgotten the name of.
My sister used to be a shoe horse. She liked strappy sandels, which looked great on her long lean legs. But oft times she would try and squeeze into a 9, when she really was a 10. Her feet are paying for it today.
I used to take pictures of my feet, sans shoes, wherever I went. It was my thing---unlike shoes.
