My Mother's Shoes

I'm lucky that my mom and I share the same shoe size. I am not much into shoe shopping, so I just have 1-2 pairs of shoes that I wear daily and another one for formal events. But when I need shoes, I first look in her shoe collection and see if there's any pair that would suit my needs before heading out to buy.

She also has better shoes than I do. She has branded shoes like Ferrogamo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Bally, Naturalizer, etc. in her decades-old collection. I guess it's because they are good quality (and expensive!) that they are still in good condition even after many years. Which I can't say about the cheaper brands that I usually buy. You truly get what you pay for.

She does let me use her shoes. Especially now, since her hip accident, she can't wear many of them, especially the ones with heels. My sister-in-law does not share the same shoe size so I'm the only one who can utilize them.

Maybe I should start using them. They are more classy anyway than my own shoes.
