My Footwear only includes Athletic Shoes and Sandals


April 12, 2017

The only footwear I own are athletic shoes and sandals. That is, unless you count socks as footwear. I have plenty of those.

I have four pairs of shoes because I’m looking at things long-term. Honestly, the only footwear I’ve paid for in the last 11 years are socks and some dress shoes I gave away.

Athletic Shoes

My older son, Joe, buys new athletic shoes more often than I can imagine. He’ll sometimes give me his old shoes. His old shoes usually look like they’re new.

Joe sent a jumbo-sized balikbayan box from England a few months ago. It included several pairs of athletic shoes, of various sizes. He not only sent his old shoes, he sent those of his two boys as well.

I could only wear a few of them. They sport the brand names of New Balance and Nike on them. I have wide feet and some of them were too narrow for me.

In the past, Joe’s given me athletic shoes made by Fila and others but that was years ago.

Sandals

I have a pair of Nike sandals and a pair of Adidas sandals. They’re the slip-on type. I wear them over black socks and I wear them more often than anything else.

I have at least one pair of thong sandals, commonly called flip-flops, which I usually can’t find. Someone else will wear them and won’t put them back where they belong. I don’t think I’ve worn them more than twice.

Other Footwear

I’ve had a couple of pairs of dress shoes in the last 11 years. At some point I gave both of them to relatives who needed them more than I did.

I bought a pair of dress/work shoes at the Payless shoe store at the Ayala Mall at the freeport zone in 2015. That was a month or so before my younger son, Jon, got married here. They were built for work, but looked like dress shoes.

I don’t have to go anywhere in the Philippines that requires me to dress up. I don’t have a job to go to either. If I really need dress shoes, I’ll buy a new pair. I don’t see that happening in the foreseeable future.
