The past couple of weeks, I’ve been going through boxes of summer wear, and I rediscovered these comfy sandals—I love finding things I’d forgotten about; it’s like a miniature Christmas. Now, since the soles were detaching, my first thought was to toss them out…but on the other hand, they’ve served me well, and did I mention they’re so comfortable?
Visiting the cobbler—yes, we have one of those right down in our local shopping center—I asked if there was anything they could do to return to my shoes a little of their former pep. Turns out, a little leather glue, some strategically placed stitches, a once-over with some transparent care cream, and a little TLC were all they needed. At least, for now…
While it was warmer today than it’s been lately—only snow flurries this afternoon—it was unfortunately still far too cold to wear them out and about. They’ll be snuggled into my carry-on when the weekend arrives, though, which is a place of honor as far as shoes go. They’re officially my “go-to” when we land in warmer weather.
Am I just a pack rat, or are there others out there that have items that, for sentimental or comfort reasons, you simply don’t want to get rid of? How long have you kept them beyond their prime, even to the point they’re falling apart? What are your favorites?

I played around a little with pattern mixing; still not entirely comfortable with it, but it’s only a scarf, right?
