It’s been about a year since I purchased my first French Sole patent cap toe flats. I wore them until they’re battered and bruised. When I could no longer wear them, I wore my other black flats until they’re as battered and bruised. After that, I’m out of black flats. No, not just black flats. I totally ran out of flats!
For the past year, my mum has been dragging me to every other French Sole event, trying to get me to buy a pair of new black flats. When we’re inside the store, she would tell the sales associate how sad my state was, suffering in shoes too tight and developing worse bunions.
It took me a while to find a replacement, though. Shopping for shoes is always a challenge for me. It’s as if my feet were designed to only feel comfortable in 1% of the shoes that I put on! Which explains why I buy like, only a pair or two a year.
Late last month, I found a comfortable pair of new black flats from French Sole (at last!) after trying out half a dozen of new styles with my mum, at the tea party — flats in super soft patent leather in the Henrietta cut. It’s been a fortnight or so and so far, they’re the most comfortable flats I’ve worn in a while. They look so good!
