Friday Five: On Your Feet

Jan from RevGalBlogPals writes:

Too often the Friday Fives I offer up seem extremely introspective, so here's something that could be fun. I notice as I finish my sixth decade that my taste in footwear is much different than when I was younger, as comfort wins out over fashion. So look at your feet and think about what you put on them!

1. What is your favorite footwear at this time in your life?
One of my pairs of ROCKETDOGStm because the are cute, kickin and comfortable. They are also flats.

2. What was the craziest shoe, boot, or sandal you ever wore?
Probably a pair of bright green 4 inch heels for a Halloween costume in college. I was a "sprout" and the guy I was dating was a Jolly Green Giant. Even with the heels I didn't come up to his shoulder (and I'm 5'8"!)

3. What kind of shoes did you wear in your childhood?
Keds, saddle shoes, flipflops (though back in the day, we called them "thongs"!)

4. How do you feel most comfortable? Barefoot, flip-flops, boots, or what?

Barefoot or slippers.

5. What kind of socks do you like, if any?

Oh dear. We are getting into "sock season" aren't we? I don't want to think about that...

Bonus: Anything you want to share about feet or footwear.
When I needed to go shopping for PREECHER WOMAN shoes for the first time, I took a committee of my 2 teen daughters and my good friend Susan. From thence came the "Ugly Shoe Contest" which we have continued every time we go to D*W....

I love your pictures at the "Ugly Shoe Contest." It is interesting to see what shoes pastors wear. . . .our newest priest wears her comfort shoes in and out of the pulpit.

Great play, wish there were a picture of your Hallowe'en appearance! The Ugly Shoe contest is a great idea too.

DSW is a great place to have an ugly shoe contest... though I suspect that some of the ones I love might qualify!

Yep, those are some interest-bearing shoes there. One wear with a whole outfit built around them. I have none of those, thank God.
