clubfeet

I bought some new shoes yesterday, and, since my feet are different sizes, I had to buy two pairs. I think it's such a shame that I always end up throwing out two perfectly good new shoes, but I can never find anyone who wants my unneeded mates. I thought perhaps I could find someone here who takes the same sizes as me on the opposite feet, and if that's you, I'll happily mail out these shoes to you for free. I just don't want to see them get thrown away and go to waste.

They are plain black sneakers with non-marking soles, and the gimmick is that they're specially made to be non-slip. They are all man-made materials. The right shoe is a size 7 and the left is a 9.5W. Those are women's sizes, but the shoes look like a man could wear them, too.

I am 47 and have a club foot too. About 28 years ago, when I met my husband, he mentioned that Nordstrom will split shoe sizes. I can't tell you how elated I was to FINALLY be able to wear cute shoes. My sweet husband bought me my first pair of low heeled dress shoes when I was 20 years old. After that I began wearing dresses occasionally because I had cute fashionable shoes to wear.

I am able to get shoes in the Children's Department at Nordstrom because even my "big foot" is only a size 6 in women's. My club foot is a size 1 in kids. I have found there are really cute styles of children's shoes. Of course, I don't want shoes that look too juvenile. So I can be selective. There are times, I will walk through the children's department at Nordstrom and not see anything I'm interested in or they just won't work for me. However, when I see something and it fits me--sometimes I buy a few pairs.

So what to do with those mismatched shoes, if they were not purchased at Nordstrom? I would strongly encourage people to donate them to Shriners Hospital or a local hospital. There are always kids, like some of us were, that may have one foot in a cast and need a shoe for the other foot.
