In my middle ages, I pretty much gave up on the cute shoes but was always wistful. If only shoe manufacturers would recognize that all feet are not built the same. I wanted a pair of Vibram 5 fingers like my sons have, but in order to fit the body of my foot, the shoe's toes are way too long. I'll stick with my beloved La Plume slides, even though they give me a funky tan line.
But recently a friend had foot surgery. And then my BFF put this picture on facebook.
And you can imagine what I found on a google search. You probably shouldn't go there.
Suddenly, I am happy with my little peasant/Roman/Giselle feet. #2.
peasant foot "is a very stable, functional foot and ideal for ballerinas on pointe." I like that.
I took them for granted until now.
Oh, my sweet little feet. They never cause me any problems. No corns, no bunions... I don't even know what those things are! I can walk and dance and balance and pick up things with my toes.
I am grateful for my feet.
