Foot loose

Before heading to Seattle's Best Coffee at Greenbelt 3 last night for Friday night coffee talks, I went to Landmark with some friends to hunt for cheap black flats.

Earlier at the center, I was ready to call it a day and I was stretching my limbs some when I saw how ruined my footwear is. I can't remember how long I've been using the old pair of black flat shoes that I have (above left pair) but upon examining it a bit more closely, it dawned on me that it was actually falling apart. In fact, I wasn't even sure if it could make it on my way home intact so I decided to buy a new one before my shoes go foot loose on me.

Admittedly, I use this particular pair of footwear most of the time so it's really not a surprise that the signs of shoe distress began showing up. With all the walking and sometimes running that I do during my daily commute, I'm actually more surprised that my shoes lasted as long as they had considering that they don't look like they were meant for strenuous foot activity.

The abrupt change in weather these past few months was no help either. This week has been crazy enough so far: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday were really HOT days while Tuesday and Thursday were overcast and a bit chilly. The rollercoaster rise and drop of temperature only hastened my shoes' break down and, apparently, my health's as well because it's been weeks since I have had this annoying cold. (Praise God, I'm getting better now!)

Anyway, it took me less than 20 minutes to stumble upon a pair of simple black flats that I immediately liked. Thank heavens! It was on sale for Php499 [roughly $10]. What a bargain! I don't shop a lot but I knew at once that it was the pair that I have to get. The best thing about it, besides being on sale, is that it was comfortable to wear. It will also go well with any outfit because of it's color. :)

Honestly, I don't like buying things. If a thing falls apart or breaks down, that's the time I replace it. Well, I realized that it's a difficult way to get by with as well, especially if something bad happens at an inconvenient time and place. With this shoe incident, I realized I have to invest in more sturdy footwear and a variety of them, too, for that matter.

Quality over quantity... as long as it's within reason, of course. I mean, you never know when shoemthing like this happens.
