Contemplating Shoes

Unlike others who have composed posts about shoes for an entire month, my shoes tend to be a little dull. Functional, but not thrilling – black flats, black heels, black ankle boots, black knee high boots, black sneakers, black clogs.

When Nanny K came over to visit and play with Q yesterday, the expert herself helped me go through the closet and pack up a bunch for Goodwill. We found that not surprisingly, most of my pretty shoes are for the dance floor.

"You should do a month of dance shoe posts," she said.

I'm not sure I have enough for a month, but I'm thinking about picking a few favorites for a short series. I mean, how many people do you know with three pairs of red & white Lindy Hop shoes in increasing heel heights and five shades of satin ballet slippers that were never worn with a bridesmaid gown? It's only right to join the collection of other oddities on the wide world of the Internet.

I told SwingDaddy that he should play along as well. "You have a lot of dance shoes for a boy!" I said.

He pointed out, "One pair of dance shoes is a lot for a boy."

We'll see if we can find enough shoe polish to pull this off.

Swing Daddy has a point. But, it also makes him uber cool.

Man, I loves me some shoes.

A dance shoe collection would be interesting to see.

I love that idea! And I think that SD is on to something: 1 pair of dance shoes IS a lot for any guy...

So when does this display start? I don't want to miss it!

I'm curious, have you ever worn your dance shoes with a non-dance outfit?

Mayberry said...

Oh yes! Bring 'em on!

OK, I think we're going to have to do it!
