I mentioned in my blog “A Conversation about Converse” that I am not a sneaker person. I personally don’t think they are cute enough to be worn as an everyday shoe although I do completely understand why a lot of people do so. As I also mentioned in that blog, I am on a constant quest for “sneaker-type” shoes, which are shoes that resemble sneakers but are more of a shoe than a sneaker and are cuter than sneakers.
This is where the Adidas Superstar shoes come in. I bought these shoes because I saw someone wearing them on a TV show I was watching and I liked they way they looked on the lady that had them on. So of course, I had to have them. This is what shoes do to me you see.
I went to the Adidas Online site and ordered a pair in size 9, which is what my enormous feet usually fit into. I got the shoes a few days later, tried them on and they were huge. Ok, so, their sizing is different. Great. Now the annoying part about buying something online or even in the store for that matter- returning said item. In any event, I put the shoes back in their box, processed the return, went painfully to the Post Office (my least favorite place after buying gas and going to the bank) and shipped them back.
