173: Solemates

22 06 2010

These are my favorite and most comfortable closed shoes I own. They have survived my notoriously long walks, occasional floods, and a Mr. Quickie sole-repair. I bought these at Artwork in Glorietta 3-1/2 years ago with my boyfriend. At that time we’ve only known each other a few days, but we were already regularly hanging out (with our bandmates) at our office. It was a Saturday when we were supposed to have a jam session but the studio and our friends suddenly weren’t available so we ended up just hanging out for the whole afternoon. We had lunch, milled around the mall, and watched a movie (the beautifully brutal Blood Diamond). I kinda consider this our first date, albeit unofficial.

I was actually planning on looking for doll shoes/flats at that time, so when I saw these I bought them on impulse. Similarly, I was at the point in my life when I was pretty much ready for a relationship, and boyfie just happened to enter my life at the right time.

Who would’ve thought that the guy who was with me then would be as perfect for me as these shoes? 🙂


P.S. Can I just say: veins on my feet, EW.
