Worn out soles

I put on my favorite pair of Steve Madden slip-ons the other day, only to feel the undeniable sensation of the floor on my foot. I'd worn a hole in the soles.
These were the first shoes I bought to replace my favorite pair of black shoes lost in Katrina. I've worn them out.
I'd searched every store in the city I could for them. I'd even searched online for them. In fact when looking for a picture of them online, I couldn't even find one. The picture above is a reasonable facsimile, same brand, but without the white stitching.

Today however, by pure happenstance I found a pair...identical to the ones that have worn out. Very exciting!
They were a bit pricey, but what the hell, right?

If you love them--and obviously you do--go for it! I don't think most shoes last more than a couple of years if you wear them all the time.

I say definitely go for it. If there's anything you should spend money on it's eyeglasses and shoes. Good shoes last forever (I had a pair of Doc Martens that I wore in HS and beyond for nine years, almost every day.) I finally got rid of them when the sole separated from the heal and I was told they can't be replaced or repaired because of the way they're made now.

Get 'em!
