Adidas Superstar- An Independent Shoe Opinion

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.

I want you with me wherever I go

I know I can’t be the only person that’s guilty of this. You buy a pair of shoes or a cute outfit, and they just go with everything. No matter the occasion, no matter what you may have on, you know for a fact that those shoes or outfit will be a perfect match. To make things even better, they are soooo comfortable. Next thing you know, you’re wearing the same pair of shoes almost everyday or the same outfit at least once a week in spite of the fact that you have many many more shoes or outfits in your closet. Sound familiar?

Green with Envy- A St. Patrick’s Day Special

St. Patrick’s Day or the Feast of St. Patrick is coming up soon and even though I’m not Irish I am always up for celebrating any holiday that has a singular color associated with it and the fact that it has been designated as an official drinking day is a plus as well. The only issue I have with St. Patrick’s Day is that green is my least favorite color for clothing or shoes.

I am all for variety and different color clothes and shoes and don’t believe in boxing myself into just wearing black or brown or white or whatever the color may be. I have purchased green outfits at some point but they end sitting in my closet until I eventually donate them. I have a lot of variety in shoe colors but green just isn’t one of them. St. Patrick’s Days have come around and I would search my closet high and low for something green to avoid being pinched knowing full well I didn’t have anything and would end up wearing something as close enough to green as I could get and hope to receive a green party hat or something.

Comfort before beauty

I am a firm believer of beauty before comfort. I will squeeze my feet into an uncomfortable pair of delicious shoes if I have to because looking cute is way more important than being comfortable, am I right?!

The one time I believe in comfort before beauty is when I choose clothes to workout in. I can never understand ladies that workout in full on makeup or with their hair all done and stuff. If you can pull this look off then more power to you but I can’t think of anything more uncomfortable than sweating by mascara down my cheeks and into my foundation. No thank you!

I personally don’t believe in buying expensive workout clothes. You will be sweating in them anyway so why spend hundreds of dollars on them. Would you get sweat all over your brand new $100 sexy black dress? I don’t think so. I buy majority of my workout clothes from Amazon. The questions I ask myself when looking are 1. will this be comfortable 2. will I have to keep pulling my shorts down while I’m running and 3. will it fit me properly, that is, not so tight that I can’t breathe and not so loose that I’m falling out of my clothes.

A Conversation About Converse

I’m not really a sneaker person. I wear them for working out but that’s about it. I know a lot of people wear them as an everyday shoe and I understand why, they are very comfortable. But for me, sneakers are for exercise or sports. I am however on a constant search for what I call “sneaker type shoes”. These are shoes that resemble sneakers but are more of a shoe than a sneaker and are cuter than sneakers.

I decided to try Converse shoes. It took me a while to buy a pair because even though they meet my requirement for resembling a sneaker but not quite being sneakers, they didn’t meet my requirement for necessarily being cuter than sneakers. But, I’m never one to turn down the opportunity to try on a pair of shoes that catches my fancy, so I trotted down to the Converse Shoe Outlet here in Orlando and bought my first pair.

I’m in love..A Valentine’s Day special

So, it’s another year and Valentine’s Day is coming up sooner than most of us thought it would. I mean, wasn’t it just Christmas? I remember being single and anxiously dreading this heart-filled, chocolate covered “love day”. If I had just got out of a relationship, I would avoid grocery stores for the whole month of January and part of February because the second the last of the Jingle Bells fades away, it looks like Valentine’s Day threw up all over these stores. If you are single at this time, all you can do is sit on your couch with a tub of ice cream and cry to “Love Actually” lamenting your love-less life. Oh, just me? Okay, never mind. Moving on.
