Most girls like shoes. Call me sexist, but dammit, it's true. I can't walk past a pair of shiny red shoes without seeing they're $200 and forcing myself not to like them (whilst crying on the inside).
I have....alright, here goes.
I have 20 pairs of converse.
I don't know where they all are, exactly, and some of them have magically vanished and reappeared in my mum's bedroom back in Mullumbimby, but when I counted all my Converse and Visions (like converse, only better but discontinued </3), there were twenty pairs. Red, black, pink, white, hightop, allstars, short laces, long laces, no laces, Emily the Strange and, yeah, I have leopard print allstars. I know. I have been criticised by other goths for my adoration of converse. And this is what I say to you:
I like them. They're comfortable, worn-in and, best of all, they were free (my eldest sister Sally used to work in a shoe shop. Whenever they had excess stock in their orders - retail workers know this means you buy 10, and get 12 instead, for example - she would just plain nick them). Have you ever said no to free shoes? I didn't think so. I also have:
-granny boots from GoodGoth
-knee-high lace-ups I got when I was...fuck, must have been eleven or twelve, for my brother's wedding. They still fit.
-ridiculous three-and-a-half-inch red chunky platforms with bows. Lolita shoes. Love them so much.
-my Demonia Swings (7 1/2" platform)
-My once-upon-a-time-cherry-red doc martens, still my favourite shoes
-shiny red heels I got from a vintage shop, to go with a dress I'm selling (next update coming soon, was too busy cleaning up and being fat today to do anything else).
-purple strap heels
-patchwork shoes from London my sister Sally got me, pictures later if I can find both of them
And do you know what else? Sometimes, I go outside, and i just don't wear shoes. Shocking, I know, but so what?
What kind of shoes do you guys have? Does anyone else have a ridiculous converse collection? Do you have any awesome converse or similar kind of shoe?
Unrelated to shoes, but I painted this yesterday. :D
