Personalized Shoes

IMG_3519Like most women, I absolutely love shoes.  Sometimes I think the funkier, the better.  They are my favorite way to have an icebreaker with a stranger and sometimes I like them better than jewelry as far as accessories are concerned.  I always giggle when I watch people react to my shoes.  If they stare for a while looking confused, I know I did my part… for something.
