This is my footwear. I wear these pretty much everyday all year long. I do have a sandal type for the summer but throughout the rest of the year I can be found in these. The butterfly ones are my 'slippers' as I have to wear shoes with support all the time. The black patent are my wear with everything shoe. Fashion Forward I'm not, but they are comfortable and since I am on my feet all day... running around after grade ones and being a stand up scrapper at night... comfort over fashion for me!
