I have three matching shoes. I used to just have two, a regular matching pair, but then one of them got left on a boat or a bus or a train or a car – I’m not sure where it walked off to. So I was left with a single black flat. What in the world do you do with a single black flat? It was in too nice of a shape to simply throw away, and I’d been not so secretly hoping the other one would just appear, but no such luck.
So, I’ve been looking for a replacement pair the last year or so, with none meeting my fairly simple criteria of being black, flat, and made in leather with more than a paper thin sole. But no such luck! (I must be terribly picky).
So, the other day while browsing a shoestore, I spy *the same shoes* – same brand, same shape, same topstitching, same everything except an updated lining fabric – I took the hint and bought them. You know, so I could have three matching shoes.
Any suggestions on what to do with a single, gently worn shoe? Haha! I probably should just befriend talented shoe-wizard Emily of Botterman Empire-fame and have her cobble a mate so I can have two matching pairs. Yeah, good plan!
