Need Shoes!!


It's Monday, the day when we learn how to DO GOOD in this world in easy ways.  Today it's shoes!


I hate shoe shopping, there I said it.  I love shoes, but not the shopping for them.  I have notoriously difficult feet to fit.  Can you say 9 ½ Narrow? The high point on my foot is in the wrong place.  My ankles don’t cooperate very well with boots or sandals.  However, when the planets align and I do find those perfect shoes, WATCH OUT!!!
 

This, my friends, is what we classify as a FIRST WORLD PROBLEM!


What if it didn’t matter whether the shade of pink was just right?  What if the heel wasn’t exactly what you were looking for?


What if you had no shoes at all and it actually was a matter of life and death?  Or at least serious illness or injury?  What if your child had no shoes?  What if going to school depended on having shoes?

These, my friends are REAL PROBLEMS!

So what’s a girl to do?  Go shopping!  Yes, you heard me.  Go shopping.  I just bought my first pair of TOMS shoes.  With that pair for me a pair will be given to a child in need in some other part of the world.  I could guarantee that I would even be able to get a pair of shoes to a child in a foreign country if I wanted to on my own.  With these, I can.



Remember my first world problem?  These fit perfectly and are so comfortable, way more supportive than I imagined with the flat sole.  I’ve got my eyes on some cute wedges, and I can feel good knowing I’ll DO GOOD if I get them.

Go check them out if you’re looking for that perfect little summer go everywhere shoe.  Look around their website and see how you can get involved.  There are other ways to help and we’ll talk about them later.

How do you do good when shopping?  Have a tip for me?  Leave it in the comments.  I’d love to learn more.


How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"

  1. Cute!!! And of course wonderful. I have been hearing much about Toms, but wondering if I should jump on the bandwagon or not. I too have very odd shaped feet (bet you didn't know that about me, did you?!!!) :)
    By the way, have you checked out the Hearts4hearts dolls? Might not be on your radar since I doubt they are a high priority for little guy, but I think they are wonderful!

    1. I will definitely check them out. I'm not about being boy-specific on here, hence the first of several posts about shoes. They are completely comfy. If one pair doesn't fit ask if they are the new or old sizing and try the others. Weird, but they are different.

    1. It definitely makes you feel more inclined to buy from companies that aren't all about themselves. This is such a simple way to make a huge impact on individuals' lives.

  3. I think there is another style out there called Bob... seriously. Different brand, maybe SKetchers, same idea. I only wish the shoes weren't so expensive. :(

    1. They do, indeed. Think of half the price being for your shoes and the other half paying to ship a pair to a child. That's what I am thinking.
