One of my big NYC surprises was how ill-prepared my shoe wardrobe was for living here. I mean, I'd spent quite a lot of time here before I moved, and I was walking almost everywhere in Denver by the end of my time there. But somehow neither of these things prepared my feet for the walking that is living in NYC. And now that the days are turning warmer, I'm running into trouble with sandals. Because wearing flip-flops doesn't work in NYC--not for me, anyhow. They flip, they flop, they rub. And my beloved Mephistos are just quite simply too heavy. I need sandals that cling to my foots when I lift them, and that are cushy enough to cradle, to withstand heat and city and sass. One of these, mayhaps?
