so today i got some hideous shoes in the mail and i'm so excited!
last spring i was reading all this stuff about masai barefoot technology shoes (MBT) and how great they are for posture and back problems. seeing as how i have wretched posture and my neck and back hurt every single day, i thought it might be something to look into. so i did. and i wanted them. badly. but alas, they are insanely expensive, and although some girls in far-off penthouses think nothing of dropping several hundred dollars on this seasons must-have shoes, i cringed at the thought of spending so much money on something so, well, ugly.
but my practicality won out. i mean, how much money would i spend on a chiropractor for months of treatment? i looked at these as a health investment--one that will hopefully pay off--and so i bided my time until we could afford it.
then luck was with me and i found some discontinued models online for half the price of the regular shoes, and now i am the proud owner of some atrocious-looking footwear! already my butt is killing me, and every time i bend over to pick something up (which, with two little ones is about every five seconds) i nearly fall over i'm so out of balance. but i'm determined to wear these suckers as often as possible, even if everyone snickers at me for looking like a cartoon character with too-big feet.
actually, this picture doesn't do them justice. they really are way uglier than that. and so sporty! i'm so not a sporty shoe person. well, we'll see how excited i am after a few months of wobbling and rocking and falling over.
