Spectacular Sunday~Shoe Ked!

Indeed it is a spectacular Sunday. I am a person of heightened sensitivity. I have Myofascial Pain Syndrome. I am unable to wear regular shoes due to the sensitivity in my feet. Tops, bottoms, sides, toes. The entire thing. My whole body, actually. But for today we are focusing on the feet.

The reason for our focus on feet is due to a recent incident. I was given a pair of shoes. Not just any shoes. A pair of Keds. Not just any Keds either. Hand designed Keds. Keds designed by Miss Trisha Hunter, our Fashionista, specially for me. And these shoes are special for other reasons as well. I love the way they look. They are adorable. You’ve got to see them. Oh…now? You want to see them now? Okay okay. Here they are:

 

Okay, I hear you. You are soooo NOT impressed. I understand. This is just phase 1 of the shoes. They were all blue and she added the white to the toes. Interesting effect. But she doesn’t stop there. Oh noooo. She added embellishments with just the right flair for my day job. Child Care Teacher! Would you care to see the finished product with all the cuties on them? ……I was hoping you would say that. Here they are!

 

Aren’t they just ADORABLE! ? And the extra boost is that I could wear them. I wore them the whole 8 hours of the day. I was nervous at first when my shift ended as I am used to having very tender and sore feet at the end of the day. You see, I had to resort to wearing thick soled house shoes at work as they are fuller and friendlier on my feet. That way there was no rubbing on my feet and a softer base to walk on. The problem was that the soles wore down so quickly and I had to keep buying new inserts or new house shoes.

With these little darlings though, I had no such issues. I was able to stand, walk, crawl, and wallow around with the kids and still walk at the end of the day. The first day the bottom of my feet had a very slight sore spot that I believe was due to the new foundation I was walking on. But since it was mild I forged ahead and wore them the next day. At the end of that day….no issues. Didn’t notice any tenderness with my feet or toes. And an extra bonus is that they are so fun to wear. The kids love ’em, parents love ’em, coworkers love ’em. Most importantly, I love ’em! Thank you SensaFashion for the kind gift. They have brought much joy to many.

You can see how happy I am to have them by this picture below:

Now that’s a happy person!!! Again, THANK YOU SensaFashion!

I have been looking all over the web for these exact pair of shoes. They are Keds Stretch Pure Fit System shoes and are nowhere to be found thus far. I did locate a pair of Keds that appear similar to what I have. I may have to try them out. It is difficult with Myofascial Pain Syndrome to find comfort and a risk to stray from the tried and true.

I’ve examined my pair very closely to try discerning what it is that makes them so comfortable. Here are my findings. Look closely at the lines of the shoe and how they are put together.

They are a stretch shoe and there are no separations across the box for the toes. It is one solid piece. This leaves no seams to rub against the knuckles of the toes. I am certain that is one of the advantages. Unlike these shown below, which are also Keds .

This pair also has the addition of “breather” holes on the inside allowing fresh air in. Miss Trisha added a pair of stretch laces and I noticed there is a stretch band across the Achilles tendon area as well.
This is shown below:

The extras make this particular pair of shoes as comfortable for me to wear as they are a pleasure. Another thing I want to share with you is the motive behind these shoes for me. I love high heels. With the combination of the Myofascial Pain Syndrome and bulging discs in my neck and back, I am unable to wear the “pretty flats” and the “sexy heels”. That just wouldn’t do for Miss Trisha though. She firmly believes that everyone should be able to feel attractive in what they wear. That no one should have to settle for “plain and/or frumpy” (as I put it). So she set out on this venture to bring me a pair of shoes that I could and would enjoy wearing and I’d feel good in. Thanks you  SensaFashion..

Blast From The Past Throwback Thursday’s

Blast From The Past Thursday’s
The 80’s
Did you ever think that the past would repaper and the fashion of the 80’s would take you by storm.  Legwarmers, over sized tops worn with leggings, long skirts that are worn with belts. Boots with fringe, stiletto’s with all sorts of bright colors and sparkling glitter.  They are also wearing boots with legwarmers. 
 
With all the ways you can wear the styles from the 80’s they look fashionable and very chick not to mention comfortable.
I was born in the 80’s and I remember the movies that came out in the 80’s some of the clothing and the styles we look at and think what were they thinking and low and behold they have came back with a POW and have knocked fashion off the charts.  A few movies that have some great styles are: The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, The Goonies.
         
So now that we have visited some of the  great things that have been blast form the past remember the next time you go to a clothing store and you pick up a article of clothing and think what would I this with think it will go with whatever you want it to .. that is the great thing about fashion it is always in.
