I never tie my shoes. Which is to say, when I take my shoes off, I don't
untie them. So putting them back on, I just slip them on and keep them
tied. The shoes are about a size too big for me, so it's pretty easy
to do. I get big shoes on purpose, just like I prefer loose and comfortable
clothing, so too my shoes.
I re-tie my shoes about once a year. It's amazing that I remember how.
I hate shopping for shoes. I have exactly four pairs of shoes right now.
My work shoes are black canvas with white rubber toe and fat white laces.
I wear these pretty much all the time in public, and they are starting to
look scummy. ie, the white laces and rubber: not so white anymore.
I bought them over the 'Net and will probably buy the exact
same style as soon as I get some money.
A pair of black canvas slip-ons for doing laundry or making a mail run.
These, too, are a size too big and it's easy to walk right out of them, so
I don't actually "run" in them. :) These are even older than my work shoes
and are very much worse off. I will never get rid of them, tho, because
Adric chewed the holes in them.
I've got a pair of generic Keds. Again, black canvas, this time with black
laces. I wear these if I feel like dressing up.
Which is never, so these shoes are in really good condition. heh.
And finally, the black heels. I think they are ugly as sin and highly
uncomfortable. I had to buy them for a wedding and I will never wear them
again. I intend to throw them in the clothing donation bin, if I ever
get around to some spring cleaning around here.
