Here we go…another day, another pair of sneakers and jeans. All of my shoes are mostly packed, except my RC sneakers I wore yesterday and these, which were downstairs in my office bathroom. Since it’s raining today, I choose these. Honestly, I love Golden Goose sneakers – mostly the look and the styles – but they’re not the most comfortable I’ve ever worn. I said that recently to a couple of people while out shopping and they were shocked. Like, how dare I diss the iconic golden goose sneaker LOL.
They’re not totally uncomfortable, but I wouldn’t rave about them either. I think I need a half size in these, which they don’t offer. I love the way they look, and that the slight hidden wedge lengthens my leg ever so slightly, but there’s a little too much room near my toes.
That was the same with my Veja sneakers, and I tried a few pairs in different sizes and seriously, they were THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE sneakers I ever put on my feet, and believe me I tried so hard to make them work. Which makes me sad, because I love their sustainability standards, and the styles are very cool, but what good is buying a sustainable pair of sneakers that you’ll never wear? Or that you will, and suffer through just to make a statement? I’m not into that, thank you. Other bloggers seem to love them though…so…
Shoes (& clothes) are so personal, and everyone is so different in terms of how things fit. What’s comfortable for me, may not be for someone else. And vice versa. I accept that.
And although it’s taken a while, I also accept that things will never ever in a million years look on me like they do on “models” or even other people. Case in point: jeans. Straight jeans look slim on me because I have larger legs, AND since my inseam is super-short, the way the knee breaks, and the leg tapers and/or flares will always look different. I should probably do more tailoring of my pants/jeans to really make them fit better, but I still have a hard time with that. For now, I buy the size that fits my legs like I want them to, which usually means the waist is two sizes too big…
Random thoughts for today haha.
I wonder where I’ll take my outfit shots once we move to the new place?
Oh, and I think I’ll take the week off next week *gasp* – but still post, if that makes sense. I have some “5 questions” ideas for the entire week. Or we could do another ask me anything? Or requests? Any ideas?
