A shoe success

I am still looking for comfortable (but cute) shoes to wear on my upcoming trip to NYC.  One easy option would be menswear flats -

They are so cute and so practical, but I haven't been able to make myself buy any.  After looking through our family's old photographs, I have figured out why.  It's because I've "been there, done that" -

That is me in New Orleans in the early 90's in menswear flats.  After you wear something for years and then graduate to what you think is a better look, it's hard to go back.  Maybe if I lost the socks, it would be OK...

Anyway, today I ran into Banana Republic with 5 minutes to spare and saw these shoes that I've had my eye on since last winter -

Originally $89 - I got them for $18!  I call that a success.  They are very comfortable, too.  I have some flat Aldo boots (on sale) coming in the mail soon.  So, I think I'm getting close to the end of my shoe saga.

I saw some "Bobs" at Rack Room today. I'm guessing they are supposed to be like Toms. Anyway, I tried them on and they seemed pretty comfy there in the store. I thought they were cute enough.

I do not know if the shoes are comfortable, but your Dad is certainly proud of the deal you made and your patience in waiting for "your price". Dad
