What do your shoes say about you?

What do your feet and your shoes say about you?

The site of these little stinky feet in pale red Crocs makes me smile.

My seven-year-old son lives in these shoes,
except on days he has PE,
when he has to wear his tennis shoes.

To me, these mean he can put them on himself and be out the door quickly.
They represent his favorite color...and independence.

My older son, who's 12, wears a larger size shoe than I do now.
I don't know why that amazes me, but it does.

He's growing so fast.
Sure the hormone brothers visit occasionally,
but he's such a great kid.

We have the most incredible conversations.

He usually only wears tennis shoes.
My sensible kid.

And this is me in all my paleness.
I just realized I'm pale beyond pale...from wearing pants to work every day.

I usually live in shorts, but we can't wear those at work...

so this year, I'm paler than pale.

I'm paleness defined.

I used to have only a few pairs of shoes that I wore.
Now I have a ton...and I wear them all the time.
I have my cowgirl boots I wear at least once a week with a fun skirt.
And the plethora of shoes my mom gave me for work.

My latest desire?
Pink boots.

If you bought some cowgirl boots, what color would you want?
What do your shoes say about you?

Did you know there are websites devoted to celebrity feet?
And I'd totally love to visit the Bata Shoe Museum

I have many pairs --not enough to rival Imelda Marcos' collection, although my husband thinks so, --but I tend to always wear the same 2-3 pairs all the time. Now, I try to get rid of a pair every time I buy a new pair. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great week!

I have a handful of pairs, and only wear my favorite sandals and sneakers when I'm working out. That's it. My shoe collection is pathetic.

Love me some shoes, ESP cowboy boots. My craving is for some turquoise inlay Old Gringo ones. Yikes on the price though!

Shannon said...

I love shoes (almost as much as I love purses). Shane doesn't understand why I love shoes (or purses) so much.

I have many pairs, but when I think about it, I probably only need about 3 or 4, LOL! I live in flip flops in the summer... and pretty much just my Crocs the rest of the year...

I'm not really sure what my shoes say about me beside cheap. If I bought some cowgirl boots, mind would have turquoise colored print/trim. Oh, and maybe some rhinestones.

Momo Fali said...

Oh, thank goodness. For a second, I thought I was going to scroll down to find a picture of my size 11 feet in my bright orange Crocs!

Mama Dawg said...

I'd totally buy red cowboy boots! And wear them nearly every day!

I love shoes. I loved colorful shoes. The bright and more tacky the better! I'm such a shoe whore. Sigh......

beth said...

i so love shoes. in fact, i usually wear really boring clothes with fun shoes. on any given day, my shoes say something completely different about me. however, now that the nice weather is working it's way towards us, i'm a flipflop type of girl (unless i'm going to the gym).

Sally-Ann said...

I hate buying shoes for my messed up feet, so when I find a comfortable pair I wear them to death.
I used to wear very fashionable shoes, now I wear comfortable shoes

CrystalChick said...

I don't have many shoes at all.
A black pair of sandals that I got for our Cancun trip last year I was really loving and then a part of the strap broke. :*( They are still wearable but I really should get to the store and try to find a replacement pair or two... summer is almost here!
I have some very boring looking sneakers with open backs on them that are really comfy. They definitely are not fashionable.

Hope you get some pink boots!!

Ash said...

I'm going with the brown with turquoise detail.

Mama Dawg, I won't tell you what red cowboy boots says about you - probably urban legend anyway ;-)

All my shoes are either from Target or Payless. I had a heart attack the other day when I fell in love with a pair of Target sandals only to realize they were $29.99 - wth?!

I need to get to the mall more often.

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

My shoes say I get an "F" in fashion. No idea what is stylish.

9/10 times I wear tennis shoes, too!

My sister got similar boots to those except they are turquoise.

TentCamper said...

I don't care what you think....I HATE CROCS! I live in tennis shoes or flip flops.

Congrats on being such a Hot Mama!!!

Susie said...

My shoes say that I am a mom and I am tired and I had better be comfortable.

M said...

I'd kill for a gorgeous pair of hand made high-top cowgirl boots. Something brown with a saucy inlay. Something that would look great with jeans or a skirt, for work or for honky-tonkin'.

I have a shoe fetish but I tend to balk at the price. Once I have a steadier paycheck, I may just get those boots. I'll stick with my work boots and dress boots for now.

Hey Rhea, just wanted to say hi. I haven't been able to get around as much. Seems to be the case for many! I love shoes, especially sandals and I am a lucky girl that my hubs loves shoe shopping for me and I love the shoes he picks out. I am not a shopper so this works out well for me. Love some slinky black sandals!!!!! And flip flops with a bit of height.

My shoes say that I have Fred Flinstone feet. Otherwise they are pretty quiet.

I tried to comment on this yesterday but my computer refused to load the page. Stupid computer.

My shoes say I'm a Florida native, I guess. I wear flip-flops almost all the time.
Andrew has Spiderman crocs and we both love them; him because they're cool and me because they're easy!
Elayna loves fancy shoes, Shelbie loves flip-flops too and especially MINE! And Tim is into the fancy, expensive sneakers.

Justine said...

Oh man, those boots are SO YOU! You've gotta get a pair!!!!!!
My shoes say that I'm pathetic. I basically wear the same flip flops every damn day.
Your feet and toes look cute, but I don't like those shoes. You might be better off in my scuzzy flip flops. Hey, just being honest here!

Justine :o )
