I am not the type of girl who has a million pairs of fabulous shoes. I have a single pair of black flats, a pair of sneakers, a pair of flip flops, and a pair of slippers with Eeyore (my favorite character from Winnie the Pooh) on them and that is the extent of my shoe wardrobe. I tell you this so you will know how unusual it is for me to fall in love with a pair of shoes. Carrie Bradshaw I’m not. But despite all that, I am head over heels in love with these Edgar Allen Poe shoes and I am feeling the need to make them mine.
I mean, how cool are they!?! And the fact that they are custom means I could get any poem or book I wanted. I am now imagining Prufrock shoes with various passage from the poem in a cool font on them and I am getting a little giddy at the concept!
I feel like if I had these shoes (or my imaginary Prufrock ones) I would be the type of girl who people would look at and say, in the immortal words of Josh Lyman from the West Wing, “I love her. I love her mind. I love her shoes.”
