Dear Shoes

Part 5 of What I’ve Learnt

Dear Shoes (aka Asic Kayano’s),

Can you please stop giving me blisters.  My poor feet are not liking it.

No really shoes, I don’t understand why you are doing this to me, and why now?

When I got fitted for you, you were great.  Compared to my old Shoes, which were a cousin of yours by the way (GT’s, don’t ask me on which side, cause I don’t remember, does that matter anyway?), you are like running on clouds.

I mean I took the time to visit you at a specialist running shop.  I tired you on and other shoes.  I picked you, because well, you were comfy and you looked awesome.  I mean pink, why hello, you are funky and cool and fun.  You’re brother in blue is pretty awesome too, so I had to get him too, but it took a couple of months for me to get him, cause well you aren’t cheap shoes.

So when we first started dating I will admit we did clash a little.  Yeah you gave me a blister, but it had to do with the new cushioning and me not being use to it.

The thing is I’ve had you for nearly a year pinkies (bluey’s 9 months), and you are still great now, except when I peal off the socks to discover those damn blisters.

And before you go off as say “it’s your socks”, it’s not. I know this because I have tired various socks, including socks inside out, all without success. And yes I know I still have a couple of more socks to try but still. Me no likey.

So why am I writing to you shoes. I’m writing to you to give you a warning.  Cut it out, or I WILL retire you.  And I MAY NOT adopt your younger sisters or brothers, or cousins.  I may choose to go adopt an entire new family.

So you have been warned!

Sincerely your owner,

Matilda aka Run Mum
