Friday five, shoes.

1. What size shoe do you wear?
Hmm, oddly enough, I am not even sure. I think it is 43? Which is 9, which is 10.5, depending where I am in this world. My current size is 10.5?, but i would not bet my feet on it.

2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Hmm, looks like I have more computers than pairs of shoes? I think I have about seven pairs of shoes. Ok, maybe 9. (I will count later, ok?)

3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, pumps, etc.)?
it really depends. I definitely like simple and classic shoes every day, but I tend to wear sneakers on weekends. Nothing beats great specialized boots during the harsh New York winters. I do not wear sandals. My feet are just too funny for those.

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite?
It is probably this pair of campers at this time. They are Camper Pelotas Napa Negro (16390), the wide kind. I changed the shoe laces on them, so they are not quite as flashy as the original design. They look a little funny, almost as if had gotten them by prescription. They are incredibly comfortable. These Spanish shoes are basically sneakers that look like classic black leather shoes that look like funny clown shoes. How is that for a description?

5. What's the most you've spent on one pair of shoes?
I probably spent more on a pair of shoes at some other occasion, but the most expensive pair of shoes felt to be the these running shoes I got in high school back in Germany. Everybody was wearing Air Jordans then, it was odd how our entire school began to abandon adidas shoes to wear nike.
I was not ready to wear what everybody else was wearing, and these air jordans just really did not look right, so I went for these very specialized running shoes. (Nike Terra (Donít laugh, I got them in 1982)) They must have been the est piece of running equipment I had ever seen. It was almost as if I had to tie them down, so they would not fly away. This ness came at a price. I do not remember how much they were, I just remember them being very expensive, or at least incredibly expensive for a high school student. It turns out that they are one of the worst running shoes money can buy, because they offer no ancle support whatsoever. I am actually quite glad that I am not a passionate runner. I would have probably injured myself in them.
