Good Shoes

There are some things you can skimp on, but shoes are not one of them. For more than two weeks, I’ve been walking over hill and dale, castle walls and cathedral steps. Thankfully, I have a decent pair of treads under my toes and heels. Without them, this journey would have been much less enjoyable. Seriously, don’t waste your money on cheap shoes. They’ll only let you down, literally and figuratively. After all, it’s your feet that take you where you want to go. Treat them right and you’ll arrive in style.

Here in Spain, shoes are an art form. Every imaginable shape and style is on display both in the shop windows and on the feet of the populace. Some streets feature 3, 4, even 5 shoes stores, sometimes one next to the other. This culture adorns their feet like no other that I’ve encountered. That said, I’ll venture a guess that not all of the respresented designs are as comfortable as they could be.

But after spending between 4 and 7 hours each day on the pair I have, I can reliably report they have passed the test.

Soon this blog will be filled with photos, video, and more from this voyage to Spain. Be patient. It’ll be worth the wait.
