The Shoe Debacle of Oh-Niner

I haven't owned pink shoes since I was four. They had Strawberry Shortcake on them, and those were the shoes I learned to tie shoelaces with. I loved them, and wore them out. (My shoe past is littered with an Awesome purple pair of L.A. Gear shoes, one pair of Nike's that I wore 'til they died and a LOT of Keds!!)

And I was VERY excited about yesterday's purchase of pink shoes, but alas, it is not to be so.

Turns out... the pink shoes have zippo arch support. I thought my leg was going to fall off yesterday. I had to go back to Hibbett and cry. :( The shoe guy (who looked like he was 15) said, "You need the Kayanos". I thought he was speaking in tongues. I had absolutely no clue what he was talking about. He laughed and told me, "You just need the red ones".

So the pink shoes have been replaced with the illustrious RED ones! The Asics Gel-Kayano.

I'm going on a limb to say... I guess the red ones really ARE the best, no? Can I get an Amen from a sister?
