These Boots are made for Walking...I Hope

If you have followed my posts over the past few months, you probably noticed that I often mention shoes, shoe shopping, and the tremendous difficulty I have with finding narrow shoes.  You probably know about the "foot curse."

I am pleased to announce....ecstatic, overjoyed, super-happy, displaying an unusually large amount of emotion...that today I bought a pair of shoes!!!  Since it's sale season here in Madrid, I decided to give shoe shopping another try.  Of course, I was discouraged from the beginning, and truly didn't believe I would find anything narrow enough for my feet.  I looked at Corte Inglés, Lefties, Bershka, H&M, Cortefiel, Blanco, Mango, and some other stores.  I looked in three or four shoe stores too.  Finally, I went into Stradivarius (clothing store - nothing to do with instruments), and tried on three pairs of black boots.  By some miracle, the second pair fit!  They must have been left because they were narrow and no one else could get their feet into them.  I wouldn't mind if they were a bit narrower, but they'll do.  And they were 50% off!  I don't even think I believe in miracles, but I would still call this a miracle.  I was so overjoyed that I almost started crying in the store.
