I finally found some shoes! You'll never guess where I found them...WAL-MART!! That's right. Wal-Mart! I had given up hope of ever finding any shoes, and as a last resort I went to Wal-Mart. I didn't find just one pair, I found two! Not only are they cute, but they are comfortable too. Dr. Shoals and Earth Spirit do a good job. I've worn them all weekend, and I haven't had any problems with either pair. So, in the next 10 days before I leave, I will try to break them in as much as possible. I showed them to Jennifer on Skype yesterday, and she said they looked very European. Take a look and let me know what you think.
