Obsessed with a shoe

Once I saw the new Dansko Beacon Hill collection online, I had to see in person. I’ve seriously lusted after the Rayne boot, the purple suede version no less, for at least two weeks:Dansko Rayne boot
But it seems that no one carries the purple version locally. Black and brown, yes, at Abbadabba’s, but no purple. Damnit, I covet the purple!!

I normally won’t buy a shoe without trying it on since I have such weird feet and a fixation on comfort. This time I’m rolling the dice, and it will hopefully work (the only other pair of shoes I’ve ordered without trying on first were also Danskos). I went online at Zappo’s yesterday afternoon and ordered my normal Dansko clog size (39, 38 in sandals). They have already shipped; I’m crossing fingers that they arrive before I leave for CCSC on Thursday.

Obsessions do make you a little nuts. I’m less prone to demand bargains on shoes than on anything else, but I paid what, to me, is a LOT of money for these. In purple, no less, instead of sensible black or brown. Who knows what the hell I am thinking…maybe that a girl’s gotta break out of the box once in a while?

    God gifted woman with shoes to console for the rest of the world.

    If the girl-feet are not happy then the brain is not happy. If the brain ain’t happy, the rest of the body ain’t happy… and if the body and brain ain’t happy, only God (and just maybe some rrrreeeealllllly expensive chocolate) can help the man that gets in the way because she is going to kick his very private bits from here to tomorrow with her not-so-happy feet.

    And who declared that we have to buy sensible colored shoes every time… sometimes a change in color does a girl good.

    I cried because I had no shoes, and then I met a woman who had no credit cards.
