Nothing like red shoes to lift feminine spirits! (And stiletto heels to rivet masculine eyes.)
But alas, now it’s flats and worse than flats. Now it’s New Balance sneakers and walking shoes, worn over an assortment of tape and moleskin and cotton wool, and the feet still hurt! At least if I’d been a ballerina, I could console myself with having earned the pain. But it’s just age and genetics ganging up on me. It’s a pity New Balance doesn’t make their sneakers and walking shoes in red!
