Saturday Photo Hunt -- Shoes



If you have read my previous post about The Shoes in my Life, you will know that I own about 75 pairs of shoes. This is because I never throw any of them out. All belong in the category of sensible shoes! I keep them all in their boxes and they are the only thing in my life that is relatively organized.

I especially love the use of velcro on shoes and sandals because I am a type A personality so don't want to spend time lacing laces or unbuckling straps. So this week I purchased these for the summer. Extremely comfortable! Manolo Blahniks they are not, but they suit me just fine.



I'm sorry I couldn't think of anything brilliant to do with shoes. I am looking forward to see what people will do with hair next week, right now I can't imagine anything.

Have a very Happy Weekend

Those look to be quite comfortable. I don't own a single pair of sandals myself as I've just never been comfortable in them but these look like something I might actually like!

I'm afraid I was none too creative with the theme myself!

75 pairs! That's a lot of shoes!

I could only wear one pair now. No other shoes could do because of my bunions.

I just bought a pair that look similar to that, except in black. Great shot.

Mama Bear June said...

Wow, 75 pairs IN BOXES! That's astounding! :-)

(I can't wait for next week. I have a photo from the 70's of a hairdo that I hated!)

Mmmmm. I like those. I am like you and really go for comfort and sensibility in my shoes. I don't have 75 pair though!

I don't think I have enough room for 75 pairs of shoes complete with boxes. Must be a wonderful collection.

Those are nice sandals. Something that suits my style too.

Thanks for visiting earlier.

Oh, I'd love to find some like that!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Those look like shoes you could glide along in, jmb. I try to keep my shoes in boxes too, but fall into bad habits, I'm afraid.

YTSL said...

75 pairs of shoes? Oh my! :D

Lynn said...

I love these kinds of shoes. Very comfortable and the color is not picky with whatever top you are wearing. I am a rat pack too when it comes to shoes. :)

Skittles said...

Those look very comfy! 75 pairs? Did these make it 76? :)

lady macleod said...

Those do look comfy. I MAKE myself give my old shoes away, it's the only way I will wear my new ones. I am so boring, I buy the same shoes just in the newest model every year because I have such high arches.

I'm voting for you EVERY DAY my dear.

I can't eschew a comment here.

Whoops! Media writing teacher told me not to use corny puns :)
She yelled, "Clang!"

Those look like they will remain around as comfortable sandals for years! I love them! My photo is up, please come and visit

Josie said...

I love those shoes. I'll bet you bought them at Ronson's. :-) I have a pair almost exactly like them, and I call them my "car". They take me everywhere.

Gosh, I wouldn't have room in my little tree house for 75 pairs of shoes, but I would have them if I could.

Those look like they are very comfy.
With my condition, I can't wear a heel, (no, not even that much) but if I could, those would be looked at!

Sue said...

Was a toughie this week! Happy Saturday!

LoveMyStarr said...

Oh Nice! Very comfy! 75 pairs of shoes! Really?!!

Cathy said...

I love those new shoes you bought. They are just my style. They look very comfortable.

75 pairs! Goodness, I have never owned that many pairs of shoes. Right now, I maybe have 20 pair at the most.

HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU!

Liz said...

75 pairs of shoes! Gosh-a-me! That's a lot.

I'm a comfy shoe person rather than a high-heeled person.

Drew said...

Excellent photo for the hunt. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. I better not let my wife see them, she may want a pair.

Janice Thomson said...

Shoes is good...I have a pair or two myself...ok I have a lot of pairs...NOT 75 though and definitely NOT in boxes lol...but they are neatly arranged on a couple large shoe racks. Those do indeed look very comfy Jmb.

Gattina said...

75 pairs of shoes !!! (I faint) that's a lot ! I only have shoes which I really need, I am not a shoe woman at all ! I never look at shoes and you could walk besides me barefoot or in slippers for 20 years and I wouldn't even notice it !

Gran - (Angela) said...

Your shoes looklike they would be comfy to the foot. Good picture. Thanks for visiting me today. Have a GREAT weekend!

leslie said...

Ooh, I love shoes, too. My feet are the only part of my body that never gets fat! lol Always a good fit. My "late" dog loved a few of them too - unfortunately for me a few of my favourites. :(

Teena said...

Those are cute sandals!

75 pairs of shoes!? Where do you store them?

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Dragonheart said...

Nice pair of sandals. :) They look very comfortable!

Cathy said...

B said...
