Why I’m so addicted to super-cool shoes

When I first bought my first pair of super-casual shoes in 2004, I was shocked to discover they were so much cheaper than anything I’d ever seen.

It wasn’t until I saw the same pair of shoes for sale at a fancy fashion show a few years later that I realised the bargain had never really stopped.

Now, I own at least five pairs of shoes each, and every one of them is worth more than my $1,000 mortgage on a new house.
