“When I was young, I had beautiful shoes. High heels, stilettos, platforms, ballerinas, even vintage shoes my mother wore in the 40’s. But that was then. Now my favorite shoes are loafers. With dresses or with trousers. I wear my loafers all four seasons long. In summer I love sandals too. Ones with bands over the foot, no flip flops which force me to arch my sweet toes into cramps from hell to prevent the things from slipping off my foot and drive me to legal drugs at night to just get some shut eye. Comfort is the magic word when it comes to shoes. As well as clothes for that matter. There was a time when I would sacrifice comfort for beauty. But that was also then….

Great sketch. Love your discription of flipflop, awful things! I miss nice shoes too but sandals or slip on flats for me.
Love the way you have painted your Mary-Jane shoes, never wore that style, I have small chubby feet, so they would look even more chubby. Now a days it’s flat shoes /boots for me, occasionally small heeled boots.
