This one is for ismarah… 😉
The other day I was complaining
talking about wet feet and mentioned my small but select footwear collection, which consists of two pairs of Camper shoes and 3-4 pairs of Mephisto sandals of various ages. I’ll never forget the first pair of Mephistos I bought. They looked so comfortable (and cute!) but the price tag was more than somewhat daunting. But my friend convinced me to try them on and I knew right then and there that I was never going to take them off (well, you know what I mean). That was about ten years ago. Since then I have bought one new pair of Mephistos every spring, relegating the older ones to “second best”, “beach” and “rain” sandals.
I missed getting a pair last year because the ones I’d bought spring 2008 didn’t end up getting worn much that year due to that cancer thing that mostly kept me at home May-December … but I sure wore those 2008 babies out last year! And so, after my awful hospital day yesterday I was walking home through the shopping district after leaving Maria Paz at the bus station and spotted these guys. And I knew. These are going to me my 2010 Mephistos. The black ones.
Right after I score a few more classes and my first tapas tour…
