Well, Shoeperman was surprisingly unfazed by the whole “shelves as shoe-storage” idea. I’ve yet to put it into practice, but I have to say, I’m tempted. After all, as Roisin commented, just think how much easier the Shoe Challenge would be if I could actually see the shoes I still have to wear, rather than having to root around in the backs of closets for them all the time!
Speaking of which, though, storage will probably be less of an issue once this challenge is over, because working on the “use it or lose it” principle, I’ve worked out that I’m probably going to be losing quite a bit of my current collection (especially if the weather stays as miserable as it has been: it’s just too cold for sandals!). I’m actually OK with that, though. In fact, I’m kinda looking forward to having a more pared-down collection, full of shoes I love and wear to death, rather than a larger collection of shoes that never see the light of day, and just take up space.
I bet Shoeperman is looking forward to it too.
As for these shoes: well, what else do you wear on your feet when you’ve just survived 24 hours of torrential rain? Satin shoes, obviously. D’oh.
