One of my earliest recollections of my childhood was wearing steel-shank shoes because my feet tended to roll inward at the arch. While all the other little girls had cute little sneakers and sandals, I was forced to wear these ugly brown saddle oxford style shoes – I called them “clod hoppers”.
When I was about 6-years old, my grandmother took me shopping in Neiman Marcus. We happened to walk by the shoe department, and there I spotted the most beautiful red shoes in the world. They weren’t just red—they had sparkles under the surface—to this day I can remember how my heart pounded as I stood there staring at them. My "little girl anticipation" rose when my grandmother asked me if I liked them. As I told her yes, I was hoping she was going to tell me she'd buy them for me. I was raised to never ask for something, so I didn’t dare tell her I wanted them, but secretly I hoped she’d figure it out.
My grandmother then told me, that when the doctors said I didn’t have to wear my corrective shoes, she would bring me back to Neiman Marcus and buy them for me. I remember how excited I was--just the thought of wearing those red sparkly shoes! Of course when you’re six, a day can seem as long as a year, and I remember yearning for those red shoes--trying so hard to make my feet do what everyone said they had to do…….sadly, shoes I never got to wear.
Finally in junior high, my "clod-hoppers" were a thing of the past, but the ruby red ones at the department store never left my memory. To this day I love shoes, and I love shopping for clothes. That’s in part what led me to becoming the owner of this site. I raised two daughters and always loved dressing them up. Now I have twin granddaughters and it’s even more fun finding cute little outfits and shoes for them.
