It’s summer and so that means that I’ve taken to wearing open toed and strappy shoes again. Unfortunately, this tendency does not go unpunished. Especially not yesterday.
See, I’m a good girl when it come to taking care of my feet. Whenever I wear heels I pretty much always bring a pair of flats to walk to and from the station and I scrub them, moisturize them, and paint my toenails. So it’s not like they aren’t getting any attention right?
Yesterday, however, I was wearing a pair of wedge heels with a sling back strap and a peep toe. Let’s just say my left foot did NOT like this pair of shoes at all and I, for once, had forgotten to bring a pair of flats. It went well for most of the day, though when I walked from work to the city centre to meet a few colleagues for drinks & dinner it went horribly wrong.
By the time we sat down I had to take off my shoes and in the end I couldn’t even walk anymore. I walked back to the station bare foot. There simply was no other way. I had three huge blisters, one of which had already popped on its own accord and I was in major major pain. I will spare you the rest of the very gross details.
I got some funny looks from people, staring at the shoes in my hand, and then my bare feet and back up, as I was concentrating very hard on not stepping into any glass or nails or anything else that was nasty. I do have to say though, that I quite like the whole barefoot thing. It felt pretty good to walk around without my shoes on for a chance. I don’t think I would necessarily like to turn into a hobby, but it wasn’t as bad as I had expected.
Q: Have you done anything that made all the people stare?
