Feet! (not in a fetish kind of way)

 I have ugly feet.  I know, everyone things their feet are physically ugly, but I mean it in a more general sense.  I have fleet feet, and I have these weird toes. I get ingrown toenails, and I’ve broken lots of my toes so some of thing turn funny directions.  (Hey Nina!  Grossed out yet?)

So, I have sore feet all the time.  For the last maybe three years I’ve been trying all different brand of tennis shoes.  Just trying to find the pair that I can walk around in for more than an hour without being crippled the next day.  I have discovered that Nikes look the best, but hurt.  I have discovered that Keds are cute, but wear out quickly, and hurt.  Reeboks, well, they just hurt.  My shoes have been lasting three to six months, so I’ve really gone through a lot of shoes!

The other day I was killing time at the mall waiting for a movie (Alice in Wonderland, Loved it!) to start and wandered into a Payless.  Saw these shoes, tried them on and thought, hmmm, they’re pretty comfortable!  And Cheap.  Thought about it for three days, then bought them.  I’ve been wearing them for three days now and my feet don’t hurt!  Apparently it’s not about the price or name.  Just the shape and construction.  Go figure!
