If you stalk me like I think you really should, you’ll know that I bought a pair of black sparkly TOMS for my trip to Boston/Rhode Island back in April.
I rather buy wedges anyday, (hello, height and comfort) but I needed a pair of comfortable flats since I was running 2 marathons and chasing down running celebrities like Kara Goucher.
At the Boston airport in my TOMS; socks showing like a total dork.
I didn’t really want TOMS to begin with because they’re so ugly. They are and you know it.
I looked at some grandma shoes and Burberry slip ons. I also checked out a pair of Puma’s but didn’t buy them because I didn’t want my compression socks to show. (My SIL Niki bought them in white/pink and they’re really cute)
So I ended up with TOMS and I fell in love with them because they’re so comfortable. I even took them on the boat to Alaska… which was where they started getting all haggard. They’re now tore up from the floor up. So I did what any crafty Alaskan would do: I took a Sharpie to them.

Hey, I got new shoes!
