I have many stories about being in the wrong shoes. Like one time I was grossly distracted by an usher on an oblique heel in church: I could barely get any worship in. I won’t travel back there; its depressing thinking about them, and much worse being in them.
On the other hand, the right shoes are parcels of excitement. They make each click of your heel an assertion of faculty. You can make them a private soundtrack for your daily personal runway.
Go ahead and picture it: the light is overhead. Bright and perfect for photos. White-walls enclose the space and glassy floor stretch infinitely ahead. Your destination is the office at the prime floor. Cluck. Cluck. Cluck…..you sashay and have the world fixated.
Wearing the right shoes make walking lush and alluring. They give cadence to steps and could be the sole source of the bright and happy notes in your day, and the serene glow of your evening.
This is our chronicle of walking in seven right shoes by Jimmy Choo.
