Friday Fresh!

We are continuing our occasional Friday series of random questions of things we really want to know about you.

Tell us about your favorite pair of shoes--and why. (You’ll be surprised what it will reveal about you.)


What shoes do I love?

My low-heeled black sandals. At this point, they’re starting to show wear and tear in places, but I am ignoring it, and planning to wearing them forever.

Why do I love them?

They are comfortable, of course. And they are my “anything” shoes. They work with most any outfit, from a bathing suit to shorts to jeans to out-to-dinner wear.

What does this say about me?

Uh...I value flexibility? (Actually, I do!)

Okay, who is next?

I actually have a few faves for different times of the year, haha! During the summer I'm a straight flip flop girl, then in the winter it's my old beat up Uggs to keep me warm. Then I just have my slip on tennies that are simple and comfy. :) :)

I am one of those rare females who doesn't love shoe shopping, doesn't own heels. Most of the time, I am barefoot or in socks. BUt, my fave pair, if I had to name a pair, is my 18-year-old red snakeskin cowboy boots. They are bright red, and perfectly broken in, and I've had 'em nearly forever. And when I wear them, because they are BRIGHT red, I feel very non-comformist and very rebellious, of which I am both those things . . . and I wear 'em every day in the winter. :-)

Kelly, I have a favorite old pair of Uggs, too, that I wear to outdoor evening sporting events.

And Erica, during the summer, I spend a lot of time barefoot, too! Another reason I love those sandals...I can slip into them at a moment's notice and tear out of the house.

Sara Hantz said...

Winter is definitely the Uggs. And for summer I have the most comfortable pair of flat sandals ever! Once I find a pair of shoes that I love, I wear them to death.... and some!

TinaFerraro said...

Oh, yeah, it's soooo hard to part with the great shoes. Thanks, Sara!

I hate show-shopping witha passion. It always makes me feel so inadequate!
My favourite pair of shoes are definitely my extra-high grey-and-black Converse. I'd wear them to formal events if I could!
I've always been a Chucks girl *wave to KP's icon*, from my first pair at age 11, I've always owned at least one pair. They go with a surprising array of clothes if you only pick the right colour.

I even once owned a pair of high-heeled Chucks. The height of awesomeness (even if they were two sizes too small).

I have no idea what that says about me.

Kiki, I'd say your shoe preference points to adaptable, spirited and fun! Thanks for weighing in!

Shoes! I could go on for days.
I love thin sneakers. I'm coveting a pair of sleek blue Saucony's right now.
But I also love the new pointy toed black patent flats I bought. Sexy flats can get you through anything.
Great topic!

TinaFerraro said...

Wow, Alex, thin sneakers, what a cool look! I tend to wear the clunky kind since I do mountain-type walking (not hiking, mind you, that's too strenuous for me), but yeah, the thin ones are soooo pretty. (Note to file...)

Thanks for joining in!

I have a pair of cheap Keds type shoes that I love. My Mom always got us stuff she could wash, including tennies, and I think that stuck with me. I got them at Payless and they're washable. I love'em.
