- Comfort. The most comfortable heels are nowhere close to being as comfy as the shoes pictured above.
- Self-consciousness. I feel kind of crazy in heels and I imagine everyone is looking at me thinking, "Poor thing. She doesn't wear heels much and now she walking funny and is on the verge of tipping over."
- Efficiency. I'm usually running late for something, so I need to be able to scoot around fast and without fear.
- Laziness. I don't know... I've got a few pairs of cute flats and a pair of moccasins that I rotate in with good frequency, but in the winter I usually throw on the Earth shoes (unless boots are required), in the spring and fall I've been throwing on the Keens, summer weekends I break out the Birks and duh for my runs I rock the Asics.
(Is it weird that after I took this picture, I started to worry that it wasn't the most accurate representation of my shoe collection and that maybe I should take pictures of all of my boring shoes to prove that I'm not actually as lazy as I pretend to be with my shoe choices. The only reason I didn't do this is because I was running late. Aha! And needed practical shoes to run out the door. Full circle.)
