My Favorite Red Shoes

I have this pair of red dansko shoes that have black laces and it’s a strange thing that happens every time I wear them: people seem to have no inhibitions on commenting about them. I take a lot of crap for these shoes of mine. I love these shoes. They are one of the most comfortable pair I’ve ever worn. And they’re red.

Everyone should have a pair of comfortable red shoes that they adore. These also make me just a little bit taller, without futzing with balancing on a heel. They make me taller to stand up yo those with no compunction about telling me they don’t like them. Ya know what? I don’t care. I didn’t get them for you.

Today a stranger gushed to me. She just HAD to know what kind they were because she said they looked like the best shoes ever. If I were that kind of person I would have hugged her. She’s going to try to find a pair. They’re discontinued, but she liked the idea that they’re comfortable, durable, red, but also liked that they kinda annoy other people.

I hope she finds them. I love my red dansko shoes.
