I wear Darco shoes. You know the kind that folks where after they have surgery…the blue shoes? Lately, it seems like I’m wearing them out like there is no tomorrow. I don’t think I’m any more active than before. But, since I am walking the dog regularly now, I may be wearing them out on the sidewalk. I cringe at trying to find another pair of shoes that I can wear. I’ve got 1 pair of canvas sneakers, 1 pair of tennis shoes, and 2 pairs of orthopedic “special” shoes in the closet that I can’t wear at all. Each is uncomfortable in it’s own way. I really don’t want to add another pair of shoes to the collection.
I had to laugh over the weekend. I was walking around the house when I noticed a very different noise coming from my right shoe. There was a click following me! When I turned the shoe over, it was almost cracked in half. I was very close to walking away with only half a shoe.
I got online quickly and ordered another pair. For now, I’ve got them glued with some packaging tape around them (Well, that stuff sticks to everything I don’t want it to, so it must be good!) Sure hope they are here tomorrow. These are the only shoes I’ve got. I have a vision of walking around the corner and finding that I’ve left half my shoe in the gutter.
