  • My favorite pair of sneakers date back to my high school days which means they are at least 11 years old, if not older. I freely admit they have holes and are well worn, but they are SO SO comfortable and they're hard to find dance sneakers. I also have a pair of heels that are probably around the same age, but since they only get worn a couple of times a year their still in great condition. My husband has a closet full of shoes. I have a few pairs of shoes I love. Other than a $10 pair of snow boots (that were lace free, I'm vastly pregnant and can't reach my feet) I think it's been 3 years since I bought a new pair of shoes for myself. I'm constantly getting teased about the fact that my husband has as many shoes as the stereotypical woman and I have a handful at most.

  • Yes, some low-heeled pumps and a pair of leather thongs.
    I wear both still. The pumps are in fabulous shape, but the thongs have some rough spots on them, yet are perfect for the yard.
