Can you imagine the first person to strap some leather to their feet for protection? I'm sure it wasn't very pretty.
Over 2000 years ago, someone actually took several pairs of shoes and put them in an earthen jar. These shoes were discovered in a burial site in Luxor. They believe they placed them in a wall because they were the most valuable possession they owned. They may have intended to return for them and never did.
Fast forward to 2016. Some people think of shoes as simply foot protection. A female customer and I were talking about our difference in opinion about footwear. She buys a pair of shoes and wears them until they wear out. I could not comprehend that statement.
Some people feel like that about cars. Drive whatever works for you and then replace as needed. Some people love a certain type of car and may collect them. Others, like Jay Leno, collect cars of all types, makes, and vintages.
I would like to be the Jay Leno of shoes. Spring is coming and I'm lured by all the pretty espadrilles, sandals and strappy-type shoes. My Pinterest board is filled with all the spring styles that I love.
So, let me know. Would you rather be the Jay Leno of cars or shoes? Perhaps both, and match your shoes to the car you're driving that day.
