These shoes weren't made for walking...

Cuz' this is what they'll do....

I apparently not only walked off the heels of BOTH shoes...but the entire BOTH shoes!  It would appear that I am a PICU walking fool!

I lost the first heel when I was getting onto the train in the morning.  It was a bit awkward being lopsided but it wasn't that big of a deal.  And then the entire sole fell off as I was walking into work.  Yeah that's not embarrassing!  Sorry long line of folks rushing into the hospital doors behind me...I just have to stop in mid traffic and pick up the entire bottom of my shoe that I've seemed to have left beind!

And then the second heel fell off about 5 minutes after that.  Lovely.  People around me must have thought the craziest things as piece by piece my shoes are unraveling.

So i walked around essentially bare footed the entire day.  What's truly unfortunate was that I got 3 compliments on these shoes (at least the top part that was visible!).

Oh well.  Sometimes you find shoes at a thrift store that cost 60 cents and can last a lifetime.  But sometimes you find shoes that cost 60 cents and last about as long.  I think we all know what category these bad boys fall into.  Farewell PICU walking shoes!


  1. Hahaha that is too funny! I've never had this happen to a pair of my shoes before. Way to be productive on your feet.

  2. That's pretty funny. The best deal I found on shoes was a pair of Dansco's for $30.00. I was seriously skeptical, but they have turned into the buy of the century for me. Hopefully they don't go to peices LOL
