New Year, New Shoes

Happy New Month, New Year, New Decade. One friend mentioned that the new year is like grace... it gives us the feeling that we can start afresh with no baggage and a clear conscience. Sounds good to me!

December/January is also the time of the year when Dan and I get new running/athletic shoes. With all the walks to the park and Dan's occasional jogging, our shoes are worn out by December. This year I wanted to try Sketcher's new 'Shape-Ups' that have a contoured base and sole. I wore them the other day when I was out and about. Wow- they sure work out the calves! They are super comfy and even make me stand an inch taller:-)

The other pair I bought was a pair of Mary Janes from Born. I'm still waiting for them to arrive from Amazon but the ratings on the shoe were extremely positive. It is sure nice to have something make me feel special. It's hard being a mama and serving the kiddos continually. Might as well do it in a great pair of shoes;-)

Borns are so comfy! Hope they don't disappoint.

I love Born shoes. I'm sure you will love them too. :)

Thanks for the report on the skechers, I have been curious about them but hadn't heard from anyone that actually know that has tried them. They're similar to the reebok ones aren't they?
