Eight pairs of shoes.

Yup. Like many women, I have a lot of footwear. The paradox is that I have huge feet and it’s quite difficult to find any shoes I like in my size (43). This often results in me purchasing shoes for the sheer fact that I actually found some in my size in the first place 🤦🏻‍♀️

The silver Air Max 95s sneakers were the first Nikes I ever had that were uncomfortable. I wore them for one afternoon walking around and then never again. And the limited edition blue Nike Joyride ISPA trainers with the tags still on were an impulse purchase.
