If my feet could talk they would be screaming obscenities at me for what I just put them through. A 30 minute round-trip walk of pain. I was walking back from a meeting and just about the time I took this picture I was seriously considering taking them off and walking the rest of the way back to my office barefoot. But it’s hot out and the pavement would have burned my feet (not to mention my co-workers would wonder what I was up to) and I figured blisters would be better than burns? I might be regretting that decision tomorrow. Who knows.
I’ve had these shoes for at least 5 years and have never experienced anything like this before with them. In fact, they’re some of my go-tos for comfort so I’m not quite sure what happened. I guess they will now be relegated to the back of my closet, only to come out to play on days when I’ll be sitting at my desk for long periods of time. Sad.
They did manage to get me through my walk to the gym where I changed into sneakers and did a pilates reformer class (my abs were on FIRE!) and 25 minutes of intervals on the elliptical. Note, we had a mini photo shoot session in class today to accompany an awesome guest post I have coming your way all about pilates. Hopefully I’m building up some good anticipation. Seriously. Get excited.
They also got me through a walk to the coffee cart where I got this:
Luckily the day is almost over and I will definitely not be wearing them when I walk Chance dog tonight or when we’re eating leftover BBQ Chicken Quinoa salad for dinner. Cardio tomorrow is going to be rough and band-aids for my blisters are definitely in my future. Stupid shoes.
Do you guys have shoes that look cute but kill your feet? Any good flat brands you’d recommend? Clearly I’m in the market.
