I almost bought Dr. Scholl’s shoes today. Does this mean…
- I’m getting old?
- I’ve lost any fashion sense I once had?
- I’m tired of sore feet and ridiculous blisters?
- or are they actually not that bad?
If anyone has tried-and-true, comfy-but-professional, non-granola, non-granny-looking shoe recommendations, please, please, please let me know. Especially if you’ve worn them in foot-swelling humidity and walked miles and miles in them. Arch support is a must, as is a decent sole that won’t rub away in a month or two. Thank you in advance.
DC is lovely. Saturday and Sunday brought some heat relief (thank god!), a big trip to IKEA, and what is basically now a professional kitchen. I went to the Hirshhorn, which was pretty awesome. And to a potluck with my roommate and her public policy friends (they were all really nice, and the hostesses had great books). I’m getting settled, slowly but surely.
Oh, and I’m running! I’m doing this program recommended by a librarian friend, and I like it and I’m not dying. Also, guess where I run: past the Capitol, by some Smithsonian museums, and back home. It’s pretty great. This is not where the blisters are coming from, by the way.
