I have seen better days. Look at me. My colors are faded. My sides are torn. My insides are cracked. But she still loves me
~ The Teal Ones

That's my teal sneakers yapping away above. Together with my feet, i sometimes hear them complaining. The do make a fine pair of complainers. *LOL* No no no.. i have not gone nuts. Our feet do complain to us sometimes with aches and pains when we walk too much or when we wear the wrong kind of shoes.

I am quite a loyal kind of person because usually I wear only a pair of shoes all the time till its broken. I don't really like the hassle of changing different type of shoes. I don't require more shoes these days because the only place i go often is the market and back home to work.

I do have other shoes but they are collecting debris and cobwebs in some other place.. i think.. i don't remember where i left them :) maybe in my sisters houses.

Shoes... when it comes to shoes... i am pretty choosy. It could take me ages to find a pair that i like but when i do find it.. i will buy it straight away without a second thought. The shoes that strike my fancy are pretty weird looking if i remember them well.

There was this big brown heavy caterpillar boots which i wore everywhere i went. If i threw it at your head, you would probably faint from the knock. It isssssss heavy. And when i was wearing that pair, i was living on the 5th floor of a walkup apartment.. hahahhahaa... When i get to the fourth floor, i feel like 100 pounds tied to my feet. But one day, some moron just nicked my shoes from the porch and i never seen it again. Ever. It is a great conversation piece. The boots. People always look at my boots first before they look at my face. *LOL*

Then it was this black pair with white seams running all over the shoes. It was a Mary Janes... but a bit tougher looking. It kinda look like Ronald McDonald's shoes.. hahahhahaa.. just a wee bit smaller head on the front. I don't know why i liked it.. but i bought it when i set my eyes on it. I had that shoe for years. I even wore it to the beach and walked on the sand and the sea in it. Urrmm.. i was taking photographs... i didn't have any spare hands to take off my shoes.. hehhehehee

I have a pair of black boots with a bit of a heel. It makes me feel so much taller when i am wearing that :) I loved it cos its Kickers. I bought it because i wanted to have Kickers (its a lifelong dream to own a pair of Kickers)... hahahahaa.. But it was painful to be wearing that for long hours. Once i went dancing with it. After a while i felt like taking it off and just walk barefoot. Its still a good pair and now i only wear it for dinners so i can tower a few feet high :)

But i've always have many sneakers cos i find them easy to wear and i can run faster in it.. not that i'm running from the CIA or anything.. hehehe. I don't fall over so easily and my toes are protected if i am kicking some stones. I kinda have two left feet. Even when i am sober, my feet can go knocking on table feet and walls. I don't know how they do that. You can ask them if you see them.

My most loved sneakers is the one above. Its teal in color. My favourite color. With pink seams and a very sturdy base. Its a very good shoe to wear to the wet markets where its all slippery. And its a Converse. (my lifelong dream was to own a real Converse and this is my first pair)... hahaha..

I have many lifelong dreams to own certain pair of shoes. I haven't found a Camper that i like yet. But Campers in Malaysia is way too steep.

Maybe when i get to 50, i'll own my very first red Camper shoes :D That would be niceeeee... but i am still very choosy when it comes to shoes. My sister used to dread going shoe shopping with me. I'll end up buying nothing and she'll have shoes and shoes under her arms... ;)

I have 3 or 4 sneakers (cheapo ones) but feel guilty later that I only stick to only one.

What a coincidence. I just bought a new pair of shoes yesterday after the one I was wearing started to come apart from years of using.

Spiff, The Spaceman said...

I'm a loyal shoe person too and only wear one pair for years and years until it becomes so malu to use anymore ... hahaha ...

And I am a fussy shoe person too. It must be exactly to my specs or I won't buy it.

Spiff, The Spaceman said...

I fact I only have three pairs of shoe, one is the new one I just bought, the other is a boots, yes, like one of those heavy ones you described and the third one is my trusty running shoes which is gathering dust at the moment ... LOL!
