Summers can be really, really, really hot in China and you’d hardly find any ladies wearing trainers or sneakers during the summer. I am one of the only weirdos who do and that’s because I can’t find any shoe that fit my fat feet!!!
I’d asked a friend to bring over some shoes from the US, which I’d ordered online. They were super comfy but because I couldn’t try them on before I bought them, I’ve found that the back of the shoes are too high. Result?
The blisters are so bad that the only pair of shoes I can bear to wear are socks and sneakers. Even my kids pause in their play when they hear me go, “Oww…” as I try pair after pair of shoes. My dear little boy will go running to his Dad for plasters!
Thus began the hunt for comfy footwear. A search on Amazon revealed these pretties:
Gladiator sandals, are thankfully, on their way out of season. I have been seeing one too many short, fat and frumpy lady (like me!) slopping around in them.
Honey, unless you look like Gwyneth Paltrow, stay away from gladiator sandals:
Her hair’s a bit off though, but who cares? She always looks so slim I wonder if it’s in her genes or if she works out a lot?
Gwyneth – are you reading my blog? If you do, will you please tell me your secret? Thank you in advance.
Anyway, gladiator sandals look better on ladies who have:
a) small, pretty feet,
b) trim ankles and
c) long legs (like the lady below):
Trendy as they are, you really, really cannot attempt to trot around in gladiator sandals or you’ll look like
a) a disciple of Jesus or
b) a Roman soldier
No, these are NOT compliments! You’ve got other footwear options, dear…
