Shoes

Auntie Janice and cousin Nick sent Katie a darling pair of Vans! As you can see she was surprised and thrilled!!

Auntie Janice and cousins Nick and Spencer sent Katie a darling pair of Vans on Thursday! As you can see she was totally surprised and thrilled!!!

(Janice noticed that Katie pinned this exact pair on Pinterest and she was so excited to find a pair for Katie.)

Thank you for the perfect gift of shoes.


What are your favorite pair of shoes to wear?

I have been wearing clogs for as long as I can remember...
woolen, wooden, and even birken....

In the summer I wear flip flops.  Everyday.

What about you?

  1. Totally obsessed with my danskos - got them as a gift, and I'm ruined for life for any other shoes. Summer - teva sandals. Ah, summer. Remember summer? And I'm also a crocs fan - one of the few left on earth. Mary Jane crocs - strap across the top - to make them dressy. :)

  2. I Love Love Love my danskos!! And Tevas! Steph we are shoe sisters!

    My house shoes? Grass Green Crocs :-) plus I have awesome flipflops made out of recycled yoga mats and they are super comfy.

    (One thing I really like about my danskos is that I can wear them with my smartwool socks.)

    Katie 's Vans are cool! What a fab gift :-)

  3. When out of the house, I wear Tieks. They're really expensive, but if you can afford a pair, oh my gosh. I never ever want to give them up! Comfy ballet flats in a bunch of colors. Other than that, flip flops, my gym shoes and Converse. In fact, all of us in the house wear Converse. We have to be careful because sometimes we'll go out to lunch and realize we're all wearing the same shoes.

    My faves in the Winter: Uggs which this Winter has been rough on them
    Summer: Teva sandals
    I have a handful of other favorites, but the list would be too long. I have a pair of Aerosoles animal print flats that I am waiting forever to wear....come on, weather!
    My sister, Katie has a pair of Tieks. She loves them.

    In the winter it's Merrells and Uggs. In the warm weather it's Keens all the way!

    Dr. Scholl's fake tie slip on gym shoes (much cuter than they sound), Skechers super light slip ons or Crocs. I know the Crocs aren't much to look at, but they're light, comfy and so practical for walking the dog in any weather. :)

  10. Love the Vans. I can't tell from the photo, but they look garnet which means they can be worn to cheer on the USC Gamecocks! Go Cocks! Sorry.

    Shoes? I so wish I could wear shoes that I love. I wear a size 12 so nothing I like fits. I wear Dansko clogs in the winter and sandals in the summer. I am barefoot at home always. Even in the yard in the "winter".

    Hard question for me because I LOVE all kinds of shoes. I did recently discover Saucony athletic shoes (we call then tennis shoes out here in the west, but I have heard back east they are "trainers", etc.). They are by far THE most comfortable tennis shoes I have ever worn. Fabulous. I now own two pairs. In the summer I wear flip flops all the time except to go to work and church. And I love boots. I have two black pairs and two brown pairs and I am going to be good and hold it at that. : )

    P.S. Katie's Vans are adorable. What a nice auntie to send her a gift. Relatives are the best.

    2. We call them tennis shoes, too. Or more accurately, tennies. :) And I love flip flops too, but they hurt my feet so I can't wear them too often or for too long..

    3. I call them tenni-runners and my kids roll their eyes at me. It is one of those weird "mom words" that leaves them wondering if anything I say is a "real" word (-:

      I love clogs. Love them. I wear them about half the time, and then I have a couple of pairs of flats. Sandals in the summer. Not a boot wearer.

      Red shoes are my favorite. I usually have a pair, but I am bereft right now.

    What a neat surprise gift! Yay for Auntie Janice and the cousins…they are smart shoppers.
    I wear Crocs at home and New Balance walking shoes everywhere except church. I bought a pair of cute flat slip on black shoes at Walmart for $12 two years ago that work great for church unless I am in my SAS shoes that tie…real librarian shoes. ;-) love and prayers, jep

  13. In the summer: flip flops and cute sandals. In the winter: ballet flats and tall boots. I would LOVE some gold glitter Tieks but can't bring myself to spend that much....it's a bit too splurgy for me.

  14. Bad feet resulting from wearing stupid shoes (high, high heels and platforms) that didn't fit well when younger. Now I'm in SAS or pretty structured sneakers. Boots in the winter (practically slept in them in Northern Michigan this last winter). Summer sometimes TOMS or bedroom slippers around the house. Boring .......

  15. I want a pair of Danskos bad! I have several causal pairs of Merrell that I saved for when I got tendonitis in my feet (all because I was living in cheap flip flops all summer--NEVER AGAIN)…Now I am back to work and am on my feet a gob and my feet are killing me. I need less causal quality shoes but hate spending the money… *sigh* good shoes are so worth it though!
