10 Year Old Shoes
I bought these shoes in 2002 when I was waitressing and needed a pair of comfortable black shoes to adhere to the restaurant's dress code. Believe me when I say that they've had a lot of foot traffic. In the 10 years I've owned these shoes, they've seen me through waitressing jobs, a teaching job, a job at a local college, and several years of mothering. Now they're about to take me back to the classroom in the fall.
Good quality leather gets better with age. I wonder how they'll look after another 10?
What about you - how long have you been wearing your Auroras?
