These Boots Were Made for Line Dancing?
My leather pumps with its little heels were feeling pretty tight for line dancing and the leather was actually cracking. How can that be? Could it be it's pleather? Anyway, it's not been the best and was starting to hurt my feet.
Our line dancing teacher brings boots to class that she finds at the Salvation Army and other thrift shops. I was really not wanting to buy a pair of second hand, used, sweated in shoes that somebody else gave up. The teacher even said she sold it to another of her students and that person returned it to her so she was going to sell it to anybody for $8.00. It was 2 sizes too big but what the heck, I decided to go ahead and buy it. I'll be wearing thick socks anyway and maybe I can get one of those shoe inserts...
I've looked for boots or flat shoes in Hawaii and I just can't find anything I like much less something less that $75.00. Also, we were told that you shouldn't have rubber outsoles because it will hurt your ankle as you try to do your steps. Well, they don't seem to make shoes these days without a rubber outsole.
Ah well... we'll see how this works. My son is also encouraging me to do yoga. I think that would be nice. Even better, I don't need shoes for that!
