Shoes that Love You!

I am so impatient!  I ordered online, but they have yet to ship my items!  I am addicted to tracking packages. . .so I'll tell you what I ordered to stave off my package-tracking addiction.

A few months ago, one of the teachers at the school where I work mentioned that she gets these shoes that are cute, but really comfortable.  I didn't need shoes at that point, so I went to the site to sign up for their e-mails - then forgot about it.  Our weather down here in Tennessee (at the moment) is rainy and the temperatures have been between 40 and 60 (again, at the moment).  The ground is becoming soggy and muddy. . .which makes me think about shoes.

I then remembered that last year, I really needed shoes for spring/summer, but couldn't find ones that I really liked - including the price.   So I began worrying that I wouldn't be able to find shoes this year. . .and I really need spring/summer shoes!

I have a few shoe issues. The first is that I have a hard time paying more than $15 dollars for a pair of shoes *gasp*.  The second is that since the ground is muddy, I want cute shoes that can stand up to our red, clay mud.  The third is that I don't want to have to purchase flip-flops AND casual dress shoes (my husband prefers that I do not wear flip-flops to church).  I know it is asking a lot, but all of these factors are hang-ups I have when purchasing shoes.

Low and behold!  I remembered shoesthatloveyou.com!  I received an e-mail saying that they had winter clearance.  I had to check it out.  There they were!  The EXACT shoes I was looking for.  I found one serviceable pair for $13 and another that was ADORABLE for $20.  They are made of a similar material to crocs, and are top-rack dishwasher safe.  Ha - that fact makes me chuckle. . .long story about fish. . .  They have massage beads and are anti-microbial.  They also have a 2-year guarantee. AND THEY ARE CUTE.  My only wish is that, even though I can't really wear them now, I want them in my possession instantly!  :)  Check them out!

P.S.  I did pay shipping (which I normally refuse to do), but I realized that it would be more expensive for me to drive to a city that might have shoes that I like. . .

I totally agree with you about having trouble paying more than $15! I was able to get a $50 pair of shoes for $15 this past weekend!
