Orthopedic Ruby Slippers

There hasn’t been much snow this winter, so I have been able to wear shoes instead of boots most days.

I walk everywhere so comfortable shoes/boots are extremely important. My most comfortable pair of shoes, my version of “orthopedic” shoes, are these red and white platform shoes that I bought at a yard sale about 7 years ago for $3.

Not only are they extremely comfy, they make me 2 ½ inches taller.

Although they remind me of this.

Yes, your shoe/stripey tights combination does have that Wizard of Oz look about it! Those shoes are pretty amazing - comfort with attitude, a winning combination! Curtise x
