I have worn many shoes in my lifetime
Consider that I am a man
I can write this on a single page
A woman would need a book to list all of hers!
At first I was barefoot…
Little baby shoes
Sometimes people would bronze that first pair
Later, they end up in a closet
Remember that word?
Showing my age with that word
Every kid had a pair of sneakers
New shoes for school
Annual pair every September
Hopefully, there was money to get a new pair
If not, you wore your sneakers
Depends on your background
We weren’t church members
A luxury we did without
I don’t remember what year these were renamed
Canvas sneakers replaced by nylon ones
The new name came at a higher price
Maybe when they started getting striped or swooshed
Sears Die Hard brand
Lifetime guarantee on these
Had a free pair every six months!
As a young musician, these were a must have
A pair of jeans with boots was cool
After all, The Allman Brothers wore them!
Thick soles and big heels
Any colour you like
As long as it’s black
Scientifically researched for a new era
You paid twice as much money
Your feet still hurt
Shiny black dress shoes
These were for business
I once went on interviews with a hole in a sole
That is known as a broke job seeker
Basketball shoes… aka Tennis shoes
A comfortable alternative to running shoes
Cost less and lasted longer
Real men bought white ones
Waterproof snow boots
Yes they kept the cold snow out
Your feet were still soaking wet
The plastic coating made your feet sweat
I moved to a warmer climate
Left behind the winter boots
This called for some new shoes
Wonderful little shoes
Socks not required
Wear them until they curl up and die
I nearly forgot
Probably because they are used near bedtime
Moccasins, Operas, Slip-Ons
In a warm state, you see these worn at Wal-Mart
The best pair ever
Slip them on, no laces and the best comfort!
I love wearing sandals 🙂
I wear sandals everyday now…
What makes sandals the best shoe ever?
Why should everyone want a daily pair?
One word will speak volumes….
