Shoes everywhere

In which I can’t move for tripping over my own shoes.

Shop selling lots of shoes

But I need more shoes…
– Mrs Geek ergo Sum, everytime we are near a shoe shop.

I don’t understand why people need a lot of shoes, Not in the “ooh you can’t have too many shoes because who knows which pair you might need to wear” but in the “you can’t have too many pairs of shoes because why do you need them all”. I have shoes that have purpose not fashion. They may be fashionably purposeful but I don’t buy a similar pair of shoes in a slightly different colour to accumulate another piece of footwear.

Each piece of cobblery I own has a job, to keep my foot adorned in a particular situation and place. If they don’t have a job then they don’t exist. I don’t have a collection of footwear that looks like this.

They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but thank God, all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes.

Work shoes

They’re black, they’re smart and they have a bit of a cuban heel. They also double up as my smart dress shoes. All they need is a bit of polish now and then and they get the job done anytime I have to wear a pair of trousers.

Non work shoes

These pair of Adidas have been around a long time and are the insides are starting to disintegrate. I would go and buy a new pair but the colour schemes seems to have gone crazy, although I could be tempted by a pair of ‘Stormtroopers’.

Notice how pristine these are, I could lie and say because I’m like those trainer-collectors who will methodically clean their shoes after wearing them. That’s not the case, it’s because they have hardly been used in anger.

Fancy-dan shoes

I bought these especially for the party at my wedding to go with the tux I had rented. They are now my party shoes and get noticed whenever I take to the dancefloor (which is tricky as they are a bit too long, have a bit of a heel and slippy under foot). At least when I fall over I do it looking good.



Because the floor at home is cold.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

  1. Love the fancy dan shoes! As a woman I own 6 pairs, each with its own purpose. I spend most of my free time I trainers, and heels are for a very special occasion as I can’t stand up for more than half an hour in them!
