If the Shoe Fits
I am on my feet a lot. Between clinic sessions at school, running community service events and trying to make the most of my time in SoCal, I spend a lot of time in my shoes. Of course I have my special pairs- shoes purchased for occasions, as rewards for acing exams or because in LA people are always checking out your footwear. But on a daily basis I need some good solid shoes that are going to take my poor feet through the day without causing any major pain or blisters. I also need them to be practically priced. I know this is asking a lot, but I'm a student dentist. Every day there is a distinct possibility that my shoes are going to take a serious beating and the thought of having to toss a nice pair of Sam Edelman flats that took me weeks of no splurging to save for because of an extraction gone awry is enough to make a girl cry. I also have to survive on a student budget. I have been lucky enough to find some great shoes in the past few weeks that won't even come close to breaking the bank. Actually, skip a week of Starbucks lattes and you could afford all three!
