Of course, I plan to buy some DFH1 shoes to take with me to Italy.
But I really need something a little more robust for long walks. I don’t want hiking boots because, well, just no. Nor do I want runners, because that is not exactly stylin’ is it? (Says she who often forgets to take them off all day at work).
So, I turn to my beloved internets for some footwear ideas and come up with these and these – things which I think I might have some possibilty of wearing again. And even though the site is camping.com.au, it links to an american merchant – bugger. I could buy them online, but time is a bit of a factor and also, I have this strange thing about wanting to try shoes on before I purchase them.
The thing I find incredibly aggravating when looking for shoes on the internets is how very cheap shoes are in the US, compared to here – even allowing for the exchange rate, the same model shoe is at least 2x the US price. Which is just evil.
I think I am kind of partial to the Mary Jane style and there are a pair of skechers in Myer that I have not entirely ruled out – not precisely what I want, but they might do at a pinch.
