I put out a mini vote and Jey decided shoes were the winner - so I now present to you all of my shoes.

L - R, Back then Front: Converse with fluffy pink detail that I love; Super duper running shoes bought for running club (that recommenced this week!); My all time favourite Puma runners that were bought a size too small that now fit; Nondescript cheapies bought for festivals that have zero support and when seen by a brothers friends gf she commented: I have those same shoes but they have zero support!; Jay Jays skull flats worn only occasionally; Nondescript cheapies that haven't ever been worn!

L - R, Back then Front: Red flats worn twice (once whilst meeting Adam and Rosanna in Melbourne!); Paul Frank thongs (hooray!); Funny heely shoes that I'm still unsure on how to wear; The thongs I bought to try and look sporty - they take like a month of painful wearing before they are semi-comfortable; The $23 shoes I bought in Brisbane before the last meetup that I wore for about 45 minutes total because they totally give me a foot wedgie; Old faithful bought at Sydney DFO at mumsy's insistence.
