  • I wish you could walk in my shoes

    I wish you could walk in my shoes.
    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.
    I have three pairs -- black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones.
    They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.
    I love these shoes.
