I learned I had a love for shoes at a very young age. When I was in the 6th grade, I purchased these beautiful blue and yellow Reebok Classic shoes. They were even my school colors, which made me love them more. Every night before bed, I would wipe my shoes down to make sure their colors were still radiant, because I was obsessed with them.
One evening when I was outside playing with the other neighborhood kids, I decided to hop on my friend’s pogo stick. While I was hopping, I apparently got a little too close to one of the neighbor girls. As I bounced backwards in her direction, she pushed me away and I went flying into the air. The next thing I knew, I was on the ground. I landed on my back and was in some pretty serious pain! Although I was hurting, I wasn’t very concerned about my health. The first words I was able to muster up were, “Are my shoes okay?”
And that is when I realized: I am a Shoe Lover.
