In the pursuit of comfort

I use to have a whole closet full of shoes -- beautiful, sexy shoes.    Then I got older......  now I can't walk from my bedroom to the front door in these.  :(
I wear these to Church now.  They are kinda pretty, but sexy they are not!
These are my "once a week" shoes for work.   I don't know why, but they are only comfortable for 1 day.

I work in an office, I usually wear nice jeans or black slacks.  So all of my shoes are black.

These are my alternate daily shoes.   They are comfortable, but again not fancy, beautiful or sexy.

These shapers are my FAVORITE shoes, I live in them and always wear them unless I feel guilty about being too casual at work......and then the shoes above take a 'sidekick' role for a day.

This is comfort!!!

With summer comming ............

I will be seen in something similiar to these.  Nothing between my toes!!! But comfortable.

I'm not really old --- 40 something, but really too close to 50 .......   I was warned that your body would start to 'go' after 40...... But no one warned me I'd have to give up my shoes too!!
