Shoes - It's really not just a girl thing

You would think that, as a girl, then I really should have a thing about shoes.  After all, isn't it genetic?  The current challenge at Cardz4galz certainly thinks they are a suitable subject for a girl.  However, if you live in my house, then the norm is not the norm.  I tend to have one black pair for winter plus a pair of boots.  In summer I'll have a black pair and a neutral shade (although I have had a lovely blue pair from Moshulu that have lasted me years).  In my son's bedroom, however, you can't move 2 inches without tripping over a pair - and he's only ever here in the holidays!  Heaven knows how many pairs he's got at university. As shoes are a bit of an obsession with him, several years ago, I bought a brilliant woodware stamp.  I decided to drag it out for today's challenge and how do you turn a pair of sneakers girly?  Colour them bright pink and paint them over the top with sparkle pen of course!

Having said I'm not much into shoes, I really fancy a pair of these.  You would see me coming a mile away if nothing else.  They also look far more comfortable than the heels I used to wear in my long distant youth.

Over to you ladies and gents.  Let's see your footwear creations please.

Thanks for reading.

  5. A super card Dawn. Your family sounds like mine, I have few shoes but my eldest son has loads, he buys the same style in several colours - I thought it was supposed to be girls that did that!
