For the love of shoes

Afternoon everyone

Hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday. Without scaring it off it seems Spring is trying to wake itself up at last. Am happy as it finally means we can go from heavy winter shoes back to summer ones.

For those who know me know my complete dislike for shoe shopping. It's not that I don't like shopping since my teen years I've been blessed with size 8 feet. Most shops don't stock sizes over 7 for women or if they do you have to strike lucky and pounce on them as soon as you see them.

The way my luck usually plays with shoes is 9 times out of 10 is I will find everything I want in my size usually the weekend or the day before payday.
My mum has been on the tail end of purchasing multiple pairs of shoes to help me over the years as the way luck works with shoes if they aren't purchased then and there my size will vanish into a void of shoes that only surfaces again a few months later.

I'm not a huge fan of any high shoes I can just about manage a few hours in heels before something more comfortable has to be worn.
I'm much happier in trainers, converse, my Uggs or my flats.

After going for a walk to see the new shoes in my local office store this morning which has now lead to at least four sets of shoes added to my never ending shopping list of things that I want to buy.

If you haven't been in recently ladies I really recommend the new cherry blossom trainer range. Nike have won me over with this now I just have to do decide on which design I want most. Check out the Air Max, Cortez and Classic Cortez.

I've only in the past few years got into Converse shoes. My first pair came to be bought when being caught out in the rain last Janruary my boots I was wearing decided at the point to both start to leak and with soaking feet these came into my life.

They are great for winter with being fur lined and keep your feet really warm. My second pair came when on sick leave last year I was making myself go for a walk each day and wondered into office (can you see a pattern here - this is what happens having your favourite shoe shop minutes from your house) I'd wanted a black pair for ages and knowing my luck with sizes I wasn't expecting much. My face when the lady returned with not one but five boxes of these shoes in different colours..... This never happens but I was good and only left with one pair.

Can't fault the staff at all in the Enfield store. They are always happy to help and on hand what ever day you pop in.

Here's hoping when I go back the stars will align with a size 8 in the Nike trainers. It's time for new shoes.

Have a great Tuesday
