Possessions #8 - My Dress Shoes.
One day I decided my black pleather Payless dress shoes just weren’t cutting it, so I went to Thrift Town, tried on a few pairs of shoes, liked these best, and bought them for $6. That’s it. I didn’t know much about the brand or the style, they didn’t even fit great, I just wanted better dress shoes right then.
What’s more important is what I’ve done in them. I wore them most of the time when I was out west, walking everywhere in them, until they fit. I even hiked a couple miles in the Grand Canyon wearing them. I learned how to dance in them. I did a shoot with Kristin Manson in them. And recently my dad taught me how to polish them.
These have certainly become my favorite shoes. If I could, I’d wear them all the time.
