I love shoes. It’s a bit of an understatement, but I really do looove and adore shoes. So, I got thrilled when Dadi told me that we’d go to the mall and look for a new pair of shoes for himself. His ever beloved pair of black shoes from W. Brown, which we got a year ago, had finally given up and retired. In my thought bubble: Dadi wants to go shopping for his shoes? New shoes for him! Yay! Exciting! Unfortunately, he didn’t like any of the ones we saw at SM Masinag Department Store, so we decided to go to Payless and here’s what we got:
For myself. Sorry, I can’t help it. I love shiny and sparkly stuff. Plus, the sales attendant was so nice, convincing and cute. Hehe.
Shining, shimmering splendid shoes
And for Dadi… Ladies and gentlemen….
*insert drum roll sound here*
Furry shoes a.k.a. Frodo shoes
You see the soft, furry interior? He loves this pair. In fact, we first saw this at Payless, Trinoma many months ago and he fell in love at first sight with it. He just didn’t have the courage to buy it because I was laughing, teasing and calling him “Frodo”. When we saw this again, the fashion police in me did not object anymore. How could I say no to a smiling Dadi, walking comfortably along the aisle wearing this pair of furry shoes. This must be destiny, and he and the shoes are meant for each other, so I let them be.
While waiting, I saw an elderly guy (in his late 50’s or 60’s) who also bought the same furry shoes. Oh well.
