Add this to the list of useless information you know about me

I have really wide feet. No, seriously. They are almost as wide as they are long. They are practically square.
Add that to the fact that I don't wear leather and it is almost impossible to find shoes that fit me. Searching for shoes is not fun for me, and I hold my breath every time I pick up a shoe and hope it says "all man made materials."
Living in Manhattan only makes my situation worse. I walk everywhere. When I moved back here a year ago, all of my shoes needed to be reevaluated. Shoes that were previously acceptable because I only had to walk from the car into a restaurant or a store, were now kicked to the curb.
Call me vain, but when I'm walking around town I don't want to wear my workout sneakers (which by the way are men's because they are the only one's that are wide enough for me). The ultimate shoe is both comfortable and attractive. Virtually impossible.
This weekend I found the perfect pair of shoes. No leather, stretchy, good colors, comfortable, stylish,well made, and reasonably priced.

They are so ugly they are cute. Sort of like newborn babies and pugs.

To make me even happier, after I fell in love with them and decided to buy them, I found out they were 20% off.
The husband bought a pair too (different colors). So, now we can be one of those annoying couples who wear matching shoes and suck face in front of every one.

*Bonus- While we were standing at the cash register to pay,I turned around and Laura Linney was standing there. I live in New York, seeing celebrities is not unusual. I just wasn't expecting to see one in a tiny town in Massachusetts.

Congrats on the shoes! And I have a problem with shoes too, cept my feet are really narrow and have a high arch, so if they dont have a strap or enclose my foot all the way, they fall off. Sounds like no big deal, but try being an a stage dancing and having your shoe fly off your foot and smack somebody.

Ok actually, that was always funny.

Dude, I swear we were separated at birth. I have a HELL of a time finding shoes wide enough for my feet. PLUS I wear a size 11...*sigh*

So you're not one of those women who run around the city all Sarah-Jessica in your spike heels? I knew you wouldn't be. :)

And I love Laura Linney! I might have been a dork if it had been me seeing her.

I also have freakishly large (size 10), WIDE feet. Thankfully I've never had a boyfriend with a foot fetish.
