I’m not sure why I felt inclined to write a post on baby shoes. It might have begun when as a new mom, I bought three pairs of shoes at one time for Zoe because she “just had to have these.” Clearly, I was buying them vicariously for myself; they were so cute.
Last week, my mother came by for a visit, and pulled out a small time-weathered box containing my first pair of shoes. They were white and so simple. What baby shoes supposedly should look like. Styles are so sophisticated now but I can't say I'm not charmed by my retro footwear. The graphics on the box remind me of Dick & Jane – I swear, I don’t feel that old! There’s a price marked at $1.95 in pencil…what?! I need to talk to my mother about this.
