So it seems academics like shoes. Profgrrrl had her tenure boots a while back. Seeking Solace has sought advice from the bloggy world on shoe choices and Scientistmother
took umbrage with Dr. Isis' condemnation of square-toed shoes.
Therefore I feel it is only fitting that I put my two cents in. I love shoes, always have. However I have never been a fan of the high heel or the pointy toe. Sorry, all those so-called "cute" shoes look like pure torture to me and my size 9 wide feet. I have put my feet through a lot of stress--walking, running, and kicking--but they've been relatively free of shoe abuse.
As I get older I can only get kinder to my feet. My latest kindness and obsession has found a happy home in Keens.
I own this pair in blue
and just bought a pair similar to these
These boots are a current fantasy.
There you are, my bloggy friends, a true middle-aged academic shoe obsession.
