Can it be back to normal when the Mets lost and the man who helped put them in a dead heat with the Phillies was named . . . Pineiro. Yep, the pitcher was Joel Pineiro. Don’t know if he’s any relation, but it’s not a common name so maybe.
But enough about the Mets. My beautiful Bryant Park is back to its normal Victorian splendor. I’ve been walking there in the morning on the way to work which leads to this Friday’s Fashion discussion — SNEAKERS!
Yep, I wear them every morning. Actually I wear them every chance I get. My daughter lives in shame of this fact, but her mamacita owns more pairs of sneakers than dress shoes. Another fact about me and my sneakers — I love those wild ones like this pair from Converse (who FYI — also lets you design your own sneakers online!!)
Where did this love of sneakers develop? I really don’t know. But I do remember my first real pair of sneakers — red Converses. I was in elementary school and it only got worse from there. I begged for a pair of Adidas in high school since I was a jock. I still have that pair of sneakers in my closet. They were leather and to this day have held up well, although they are more of a memento than anything else.
I do, however, buy most of my sneakers at the warehouse clubs now-a-days, more for utility than fashion. Boo hoo. I’m getting the urge to run out and buy a more daring pair. Definitely time for some retail therapy! If I do indulge, I’ll be sure to post a picture of what I buy. Maybe this can even be my signature kind of thing — outrageous sneakers! What do you think?
