I’ve had them for a couple weeks, but this weekend I put on my new pair of leather sandals for the first time. They were stiff, and had not yet formed to my feet, but the leather was soft and almost velvety feeling. My previous pair had lasted a number of years, and were beginning to come apart, so it was time for a new pair. I love new sandals. Wearing them brought back fond memories of summer vacation and going to the local drug store to buy a new pair of cheap rubber sandals.
And, speaking of cheap rubber sandals…
This morning, I searched high and low and couldn’t find my old, beat-up leather sandals for my morning walk with the dog. I usually leave them by the front door so I can find them in my sleepy haze, but this morning they weren’t there. So, I went to my closet and found a pair of cheap rubber sandals. I don’t wear them much, but figured they would be more than sufficient for the job.
About halfway through my walk my heals started to burn, and by the time I got home, I had developed a blister on the inside of each heal from place where the rubber strap meets the sole of the sandal. Super annoying. I don’t remember having this problem as a child.
