So I finally bought some new shoes — athletic shoes (though I’m not athletic) aka tennis shoes (though I play no tennis). They’re comfortable. For some reason I’m incapable of buying anything but all white athletic shoes. I look at the colors and they look silly to me. So I went to the local Just for Feet (who apparently own feet.com), made my choice, got in, got out. My bias towards zapatos blancos probably comes out of my medical background – for clinical in Respiratory Therapy school they demanded we have all-white shoes. More professional, I suppose.
