This is a special post. I'm afraid the red flowers will have to wait until tomorrow. I need your help and it just can't wait. Please read on and give me your opinion. Every single one of you. Pretty please!
So here it is. I must have very delicate or sensitive feet because I just can't find any shoes in which I am comfortable. My problem is that I like to walk to work, which is about 4km a day. It's not that much, but a fair more than the average person in London I guess, who probably just jumps on a tube or a bus. So I need comfortable shoes. But hey, I'm in my mid-twenties, so I don't want granny shoes right? Well that's where it gets difficult. So far, the only shoes I have which don't give me blisters are my trainers (which I like to save for when I'm doing proper exercise) and my walking boots (which I like to save for when I'm doing proper walking).
Running through the other shoes I own (no pun intended here), here are the problems that I have:
- heels hurt the balls of my feet and are generally a big no-no if I intend to do more than just stand pretty in a corner;
- pumps give me blisters at the back;
- sandals with straps just generally rub wherever the straps are, resulting in yet more blisters.
So there. I need shoes I can walk in. Is that too much to ask? And I need to be able to wear those at work please. Because I can't be bothered with the whole changing shoes when I arrive at my desk. And it would be quite nice if some were nice enough to wear with skirts too. Because hey, it's getting quite warm out there.
I'm asking for your help today because yesterday I wore what I thought were innocent little peep toes/ pumps. I came home with two blisters, had to get a lift home because I couldn't walk anymore by that time and had to take the bus into work this morning. It hurts. Please if you have any suggestions, any shoes that work for you, let me know.
And if you have potions and lotions that you use that could make my feet behave like they're not baby feet anymore, but in their twenties, strong and resistant, let me know too. I'll be forever grateful.
