This is written for you, to you and by you. Anyone who claims the elite title of “Shoe Addict” is classified to have one if not all of the following characteristics:
-You have trouble shutting your closet door(s).
-You keep all your shoes in their original boxes with Polaroid pictures attached on the outside for proper identification.
-You have over 75 pair of shoes that you claim to wear.
-You classify shoes as a completely separate category from boots and don’t include your boots in your actual “shoe” count.
-You try to justify and reason to yourself and others about the new pair of shoes you’re about to buy explaining how you “just don’t have anything like theeeese” in your closet.
As the weather continues to warm up, so will your feet. Even our ancestors wore sandals. The history of the sandal reaches back to ancient Roman and Greek times as the oldest known form of footwear. The shoes were made from a variety of natural resources such as certain types of sturdy leaves, twigs or bark and were eventually made from cork and rope. The oldest pair was found in a cave in Oregon and was estimated to be up to 10,000 years old.
Sandals today have come a long way from when our ancestors wore them. They have bombarded the fashion world with more shapes, colors, styles and designer names than you can count. Today’s production of sandals (and most shoes), use hundreds of types of natural and manmade materials including plastic, rubber and even wood.
Today I’m firing the gunshot at the starting line for you; this summer, divide, conquer and purchase the cutest sandals you can find. It only takes a stroll down the block or a short ride on the subway to cross paths with the thousands of sandal styles that are out this season and will keep your feet feeling cool and looking hot all summer.
