Sunday Scribblings ~ My Shoes
Boho & Carsten's Rainbow Feet, Canon Digital Rebel XT
Today's inspirational topic over at Sunday Scribblings is "My Shoes".
I thought long and hard about this one since I don't really have just one favorite pair. I am definitely one to be attached to a few pairs of shoes and wear them day in and day out. They snuggle my feet until they grow old and weathered to the point when the average person would toss them and I just simply don't.
My sister Darlene doesn't get this because she is obsessed with shoes of all shapes, colors and styles, therefore has a plethora of them perfectly lined up on a shelf waiting to be worn with the outfit she bought them for. Me on the other hand, I have about 4 pairs that I actually wear...and the few others I own are tossed into a bin in my closet all tumbled onto one another
So which pair shall I talk about today? Well...since I've already shared much of my love affair for Amy's shoes that now live on my feet, I will tell you the story of my Rainbow's.
I liken those that wear Rainbow sandals to those that drive Volkswagens. There is an unspoken Rainbow Sandal Tribe living and walking upon our dear Mother Earth. Just as I said in my previous post about the giving of the peace sign, the knowing nod and blowing the horn (meep meep) when Volkswagen driver's pass one another on the road, Rainbow sandal folks usually have that 3 second glance and smile when they see Rainbow's on your feet.
These sandals live on the feet of earthy, grungy, surfer-esque, outdoor, granola-types. And just like Birkenstocks, they mold to the shape of your foot days into wearing them. Tres comfy and tres cool are these leather sandals. I highly encourage you to give them a try for Summer!
The very first day I met my husband (story is here), I had my Rainbow's on with a hippy~flowy shirt and shorts. He too had his Rainbows on and a t-shirt with the phrase "Neo-Beatnik" on it.
Two peas in a pod.
When I got up from where we were hanging out outside to go into the kitchen for a beer, Carsten said he noticed my sandals for the first time as I walked away. He looked at our friend Rob and said..."She wears Rainbows?" with a huge grin on his face.
I think that was truly what sealed the deal, folks.

Side note: Notice how much larger Carsten's feet are than mine. Nice. *grin*
