Walk a Week in My Shoes

‘Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can take over the world.’  -  Marilyn Monroe
A shoe can make or break an outfit, so a girl needs a lot of shoes to make sure that when she steps out it all goes together. This is my shoe diary for the past week. 

Monday: I don’t usually wear these shoes, not even sure why. But this Monday I thought I would, just because I can :-)  

These are my gym shoes ; Monday to Friday, these takkies take me to two spinning classes, a kata box class and three step classes a week. Dirty and miserable looking, these takkies live a rough life!


The seasons are changing and the weather has warmed up nicely. The weather was beautiful on Tuesday and I wore these shoes to celebrate. My feet are very narrow so I had to have them narrowed so they could fit. Now, they are perfect.


I’ve had these shoes for five years and they are really looking worse for wear but I love them ever so much. I feel very foxy in them :-) they were my Wednesday shoes. 

These make me feel very ladylike and proper :-)
and that’s how I stepped out on Thursday
Yet again, welcoming the warm weather. I wore these on Friday.

This Saturday was the first time I wore these shoes.  I loved them! 

On Sunday mornings I indulge myself in a 20km run,to clear my mind and get some fresh air. These takkies take me all the way.
My feet need some comfort after my Sunday morning runs and so I wore these shoes when I went to work. The weather was a bit chilly and wet so I needed something closed. These were perfect, nice and comfortable.

    Ngcebo on of the English proverbs goes by saying: Facts are facts,what is true is true and it does not need decoration. Looking at your first pick in this page about your shoes i just went wow, the things is that I'm this one Man who is fairly obsessed with beautiful toes coming out of those open shoes, why don't ask me, BUT THAT DOESN'T MAKE ME HALF MAN AT ALL (NO) NOT AT ALL. but its maybe because the beauty of any lady lays mainly in two parts of her body(FACE AND TOES/FEET)wena ke I've been so blown off with natural beauty and never had a close up with your feet/toes, now wow, what can I say? there is a belief that umuntu akaqedwa uma edwala, in other words, there has to be something that's not so much corresponding with the rest of her/himself, in Xhosa ibiza isiphako, not sure in Zulu. and that is only found in two places emuntweni, either on the face of on the feet. but looking at yours and your natural beauty, I'm now speechless. hence i love using that English proverb. now about the other shoes all I can say is that you have a good taste of choice, about the five years old Wednesday shoes those one's are my favorite don't know why maybe, its because of the age and beside they can be very comfortable in your tango dance, LOL. and the last one's mmmmmmmmmmhhhhhhhhhhhhh, let me think, okay they okay, but they seem very unreliable, especial on those tiles, they seem to be less balanced, and less warm. and the Nike takkies, I have so much faith in them they can take from Ethekwini to Pietermaritzburg within two hours of jogging and umungenqeni uzogcina e la e cape point e cape town. but beside everything Ngcebo you have such a beautiful feet Sis Wami. seriously that's what i can say to sum it all up.

    Getting a big head from all this toe flattery we-Mbongeno :-) thank you for the compliments…Of course, liking toes/ women in nice shoes doesn't make you any less of a man. It makes you a man who is aware :-)
