Today’s Daily Prompt deals with your favourite pair of shoes and where they’ve already taken you.
I guess my favourite shoes are some old Converse chucks in grey. I’ve owned them for more than five years and by now they are almost falling apart. Nevertheless I love wearing (as long as I don’t get wet feet due to the sole that’s coming off). I bought them when I was on holiday and since then they have accompanied me every I went. I wore them throughout my entire holiday in Morocco where I got them, they’ve seen Berlin, walked the streets of London, went to Vienna and visited Venice. But not only where they with me when I travelled the world, I also wear them in my everyday life. As long as it’s not winter (including lots of snow and icy temperatures) I wear them throughout the entire year – no wonder they’re falling apart. Despite the fact that they’re completely worn out I could never throw them away, these shoes are simply my all-time favourites.
The other pair of shoes I should mention here are the red chucks I finally got last year. I’ve wanted one of these for a long time. I call them my “Dorothy-chucks”. Red shoes always remind me of the Wizard of Oz. Now I’ve also got a pair of shoes that can take me home no matter where I am.
