Well, pfui.

Finally am wearing a dress I bought on clearance last spring, now that the weather's appropriate, with tights and low shoes, a pair of Clarks that have given me many years of service, with soft squishy soles for comfort. And I get to work, and the heel of the left shoe just crumbles - not sure if water worked its way in through a hidden crack, or what. I didn't see any crack when I put them on. When I try to pick up the bits that fell off, they crumble even more.

Pfui.

There's a shoe place 4 blocks down...guess I'll be going there at lunch. Hopefully, the sole won't erode completely before I get there, given how wet it is outside.

Naturally, today is the day I did not bring my gym bag, which would have had running shoes inside.

Pfui.

Also, my right index finger hurts; might have strained it while lifting weights last night. Not so great for typing, or signing my name.

Pfui.

The space-age polymer they make those soles out of reaches a certain point and then falls to pieces.

My problem is not lack of shoes. I have lots of shoes under my desk. None of which are comfortable with my broken toe.

I bet Cinderella never had that problem.

If her shoe fit so well, how did it fall off in the first place?

I assume she caught the heel in a loose stone on the steps of the palace.

Phooey!
I had the heel of a pair of maryjanes fall off on me as I was about to get out of the car and go into a party. However, as they were Keens, I hardly noticed the difference walking around indoors.

Good luck finding new shoes!

I found some! I paid more and got the comfy ones. I realized shoes are one of the few things for which I will pay a premium for comfort and long use.
