There’s been a lot of debate about girls’ shoes lately.
The stereotypical names – “Dance Honey”, “Dolly Babe”
Their impractical flimsy nature which doesn’t allow for splashing, running, playing
Unlike the corresponding boys’ styles – “Long Jump”, “Harlem Racer”
Does it get better with ladies’ shoes?
I don’t want fashionable.
I want shoes I can wear for more than one season.
I don’t do heels. Ever. I want practical not painful.
I don’t want to pay £70 or more for something that falls apart after one summer.
I want shoes that don’t look like my granny’s, without costing a fortune.
Too much to ask? It seems so.
Men have it easy. Everything is strong, practical, functional.
There’s too much choice, yet not enough.
I don’t fit the stereotype – and I hate shoe shopping!
While we’re on the subject, I don’t do handbags either…..
