I hate goodbyes .
Especially when it’s to a loyal companion, that’s seen me through a lot of my life’s journeys.
Before you start getting the wrong idea, let me clarify .
I’m actually talking about my JCrew tan sneakers. They’ve seen their last trip, I’m afraid .
I’ve had these kicks for years–since I was living in New York.
They’re my most favorite travel shoes–they’re easy to pair with a lot of my clothes, and they’re really comfy! Plus, I think they look more chic than running shoes, and less typical than the usual Converse Chucks .
But alas, all good things must come to an end–as the saying goes. And while I’ve enjoyed our time together (and definitely got my money’s worth out of it!), unfortunately, none of my efforts to resuscitate these sneakers have been successful . From these pictures, you’ll see that while it still looks pretty good on the surface, the soles are beyond repair. I have lovingly worn them out, I’m afraid .
I guess I have to accept that it is time to move on.
And to be honest, these new sneakers have made moving on much easier for me. Hahaha!
These are Bensimons. I’m currently obsessing over them!
Don’t they look soooooooo cool?
I love that they’re French too!
*Sigh* I can’t decide what color I want to get .
But definitely, I can’t wait to get myself a pair…or two . Hahahaha!
Unfortunately, they’re only available online for now and cost anywhere from about $48-$55 a pair. That means I need to get them shipped to a US address.
Good thing I have several relatives on their way home, so it shouldn’t be a long wait . It’s practically Christmas already! Hahaha!
Ooooh, something to look forward to!
I guess saying goodbye didn’t turn out to be so bad after all .
