Not so long ago, we had a discussion about old feet and fancy shoes in which I noted,
”…these are the closest thing I’ve found to going barefoot. They come in a dozen or more colors from two manufacturers, but I always buy gold (or bronze) because that color goes with everything and is more interesting than black.”
The photo I published of these shoes in that post is the “second” brand. They are a close match to the “first” brand I have bought regularly for years but had not tried until the color I like – bronze or pewter – was not available in my usual brand.
A few days ago, it was time to start breaking in the new shoes. They are the size I have worn in many styles and brands for 10 or 15 years but there was not a chance I could get my feet into these. It was as though I’d bought them a size, maybe more, too small.
So here is the deal: These are attractive shoes and even better, are comfy in the correct size. I would like to give them to a TGB reader who is interested in having them.
The brand is Trotters, the style is Liz. The size is 7.5 Medium. As I said, however, the size does not work on my otherwise 7.5 Medium foot. So it could be that to fit, you need to be a 6.5 or 7 Medium in other shoes.
If you are interested, send me an email (click “Contact” at the top of the left sidebar) and let me know. To not give early morning readers an advantage, I’ll choose the fifth email. Include your snailmail address and I’ll ship them off to you post haste.
If it turns out they do not fit, you must promise to try to pass them on to someone else who may be able to wear them.
Isn’t this an odd thing to do with a post on a blog about aging. But, hey, if you own the medium, you get to take advantage of it. Many, many years ago, my husband and I gave away a dozen kittens (our two females gave birth within a week of one another) on his radio show.
