Shoooooooooooeeeeeeees!!!!!

Posted by Newme at 6/25/2010 11:09:00 AM

I have to confess, I have a bit of a shoe addiction.  Or is it an obsession?  Well whatever you want to call it, I have it, and it is contagious.  If you get to close you might catch it too. So don’t say I didn’t warn you. 

And actually the title of this post comes from my granddaughter Haley.  You see she spends the majority of her time with me.  She follows me around all day trying to emulate everything I do.  She cracks me up most of the time.  For example, her first real word was shooooooooeeeeeees.  LOL!  That’s exactly how she said it.  And she’s constantly getting into my shoes, trying them on and checking herself out in the mirror.  We finally had to buy her a collection of cute dressy little kids shoes to keep her out of grandma’s fairly expensive collection.  But I’m getting off topic.  This post is actually about my Mother’s Day present this year.

When my kids asked what to get me for mother’s day, I already knew exactly what I wanted.  Shooooooooeeeeeeees!!!!!   I’m sure they thought I was nuts.  But that’s nothing new.  They told me I already had tons of shoes.  But these weren’t just any old shoes.  They were a special pair.  One of kind.  Custom made and designed.  Just for me.

Besides these weren’t another pair of pumps, or strappy heels, or sandals, or boots.  These were a pair of my all time favorite Chuck Taylor Converse shoes.  I have owned and worn out many pairs of these shoes since Jr High.  I have had them in high tops, low tops, and in many different colors.  But never in my wildest dreams did I think I could have a pair that I designed myself.  Check them out.


If you’re crazy like me, and love these shoes,  Here’s a link to The Chuck Taylor All Star Layer-Up - Design Your Own to get you started creating your own.  It’s really cool how you can choose every detail down to even the stitching on them.  Plus you can choose your own personal id that can be placed on the heel strip or the lower outside of the shoe. I picked my screen name "Newme".

After I placed my order I started to worry that they wouldn’t look exactly like they did in the picture on my screen.  Or that they wouldn’t be the same quality that I’m used to with Converse shoes.  But when they came I was blown away by just how perfect they were.  I love everything about them!!! And I love my kids for such an awesome Mother’s Day present!

So check it out.  Go nuts.  And have fun designing your own pair or pairs.  I already have a couple more designs saved in my account that I just might buy someday soon.

Thanks DQ2!!! I had a blast designing them! And I really love how they look. Now when people ask where I got them, I can tell them they're one of a kind.
