What are the perfect shoes for summer?
You see I am a great fan of boots. I find them comfortable and stylish too. In fact, I need a new pair after I wore my knee high leather ones like a pair of slippers as well as out and about.
Even I have to confess that as the heatwave hits, boots are not practical at all. I want the fresh air on my feet. I want to feel the heat of the sun on my skin.
Since the boots became positively dangerous to wear, I have sported some red and white nautical flats with a shiny bow on the front. I much prefer flats to heels. After injuring my ankle last year in a fall, I worry even more about heels.
So my flats are fun and comfy but I am going to look for some ladies flat sandals now that Summer really seems to be on its way.
I also need to up my exercise and fitness levels so am going to check out some NHS guidance on buying sports shoes.
I have never seen my husband in men’s sandals at all. He says that is because he remembers nasty plastic sandals from his childhood. He says if men must wear sandals they should watch out for rain and never wear socks with them. Clearly those plastic sandals have traumatised him!
My kids tend to wear flip flops or trainers in the summer. If I want to prevent them avoiding sandals for life like Dad, we should check out some kids sandals.
My top summer shoe memory is rock-pooling and finding a tiny fish wriggling in my flip flops.
