I have never particularly liked shoes. When I was a child I wore corrective shoes until I was 12. They were black and white saddle shoes, and I wasn't allowed to wear anything else, except eventually gym shoes for a hour at school, and dressy shoes for church. (I know that many children naturally grow out of minor leg malconformations; mine was so bad that after several years of treatment, at age 5, I still couldn't run because my knees would collide.) Inevitably, the year I was released from treatment, saddle shoes came into style; I couldn't stand to wear another pair!
Since then I have generally had only two or just possibly three pairs of shoes 'in play' at a time. A basic pair for every day, something for church, and possibly hiking boots or the like. Occasionally I'd have a pair that I really enjoyed, but I still never bought shoes just for fun, or switched from day to day.
Well, my kid has discovered fun shoes, and it seems to be rubbing off. It helps that flats are in style; I really don't do heels. But suddenly I have not one, not two, but THREE pairs of dress shoes, and the third has flowers; and last week I bought THREE pairs of casual shoes! My taste seems to be leaning towards "I can't believe my church organist is wearing those!"
