Girl Talk Hop: Shoes! (Brought to you by Rory :o))



My s-i-l Laura writes for a blog called "Girl Talk" and this week they are hosting their very first blog hop! This week's theme is shoes. Go join in!

(All my images are taken from Google Image Search. I own all the shoes pictured, I just don't have pictures of them. :))

I myself like shoes. I especially enjoy a good pair of black heels, the taller the better. I attribute this to my since birth desire to be a Rockette and never making it to the required height. I'm 5'5, which is certainly not short but it's not the towering goddess a Rockette is required to be! :) I like comfy sneakers and oh goodness. These bad boys...


My Nike Comfort Sole sandals. I got them for the beach because I figured my sore pregnant lady feet would need a little extra comfort. Now it's a rare day when I don't have them on my feet! They are like walking on a cloud. I paid $18 for mine at a beginning of summer sale, but next year I'll pay whatever price they currently are because they are awesome.

But there's where my shoe love ends. I'm not really very picky.

Rory on the other hand...


See that sandal? Imagine it in LIME GREEN and you've got the love of Rory's life. She has two pairs, due to a day when I thought I lost one and she was heartbroken, and wears them at least 6 days a week. They are really nice shoes, good soles and tread so Rory maneuvers nicely in them. But they are *GREEN*. I can't find a picture online of the actual shade of green they are but...imagine lime green and yellow sandals got married and had a baby. That's the color of Rory's shoes. Stylin'. I don't care. I let her wear them with everything because she never ever even tries to take them off, doesn't fuss when it's time to put them on and walks like a dream in them.

She also loves...

Her pink glitter sneakers! New to our shoe collection, these little darlings are making an appearance for fall. Rory's are velcro because she likes to "put them on herself" once I get the shoe on her foot.

And let's not forget the real star of the show!

Her tap shoes! She wears them around the studio all afternoon like she's a hot tamale. Yesterday I was teaching a beginners' class (kdg-second grade age) and she heard them tapping. Rory came FLYING in from the lobby to join in. She's pretty proud of her taps, let me just tell you. :)

Yay! Thanks for joining in Kate! I have found that it's worth it to pay for a good pair of flip flops!

I need to come see you guys! Rory in tap shoes is probably something amazing. :)

those Nike sandals look AWESOME! I wish I had known about those earlier this summer... they may have trumped my Old Navy flip flops!

Stopping over from Girl Talk. Love those Nike sandels! I'm not a big fan of that thing between your toes, but I might just have to try those. They do look comfy!
