Fancy footwear...

This is MY new shoe for the next four weeks. I finally went to a foot doctor on Tuesday because it felt like I was walking around on a broken foot and I couldn't get my left foot into a shoe because of the swelling. A couple stress fractures confirmed I wasn't crazy. This could make it interesting on our upcoming vacation to Mackinac Island. Life is never dull!

XOXO

sorry about your foot. I guess that pretty boot beats a heavy old cast though huh? When is your vacation? Youre gonna make me jealous again!

Oh know! I hope it heals soon. It's terrible to have a sore foot. My girlfriend has a similar problem right now and can't find any suitable shoes. Feel better!

Courtney said...

You poor thing. I know from experience, foot pain is no fun. I think that boot needs to make a visit to the craft room, I am sure you can jazz it up a little!

Oh no! That stinks! Wishing you a super speedy recovery!

Where can I get one? Seriously, sorry to hear about the foot. Maybe a little Bedazzling for it?

Lee said...

Aww, Kim! Sorry to see your new footwear. I know from personal experience how a stress fracture feels, although mine was my tibia. Hope you heal fast and feel up to fun on vacation! Hugs to you!

Sarah said...

Lovely! I have a matching one for the other foot inc ase you need it. I broke my foot the day we left for China in 2005. Hobbled around for 2 weeks carry an extra 15 ibs. of love:). Returned home and had to have surgery. I refer to my bootie as my "Darth Vadar" shoe:)

Ti auguro una rapida guarigione!
Cerca di vedere il lato positivo: potrai dedicarti indisturbata a tanti "manuals crafts"!!!

Looks like a great opportunity to gussy it up vintage style or break out the razy scooter and move ahead of the pack! Smiles...Renee

What a bummer, Kim! Having foot pain is horrible, so hopefully this will help. I once had a foot/leg cast, and it made showering and everything else horrible! If I were you, I would lay around and take that thing off as much as possible! Take care!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Oh no! Take care of yourself, my friend! Let everyone wait on you! lol And thanks for the VERY sweet comment this morning! Makes me feel special! ♥

Donna said...

Oh no! So sorry to hear that, Kim! I hope you are doing better. Sounds like renting a horse and buggy is your best bet on Mackinac Island! Maybe you can add some glitter to your new footwear to jazz it up a bit:) Feel better soon!!

Ouch! My husband got a stress fracture playing tennis and had to wear a boot similar to yours. Unfortunately it took quite a while to heal. He tried to play too soon, which just made it worse, and finally had to take 6 months off from his team. One of my daughters friends also got one from dancing. (they really pound their feet in those hard shoes for Irish dance) and she got really frustrated when she had to miss some dance competitions. Stay off it as much as you can.

I have had to wear one of those on three separate occasions. Always in the summer. Finally I started investing in good (aka Expensive) shoes and never go barefoot and gave up running. I have not had a stress fracture in over 2 years now.

Karin said...

Oh nooooooo....not fun to try to peddle a bike at Mackinac with that on! Oh wait...now you can sit in the back of a tandem and not do anything. :) Yeah...that would work. :)

Janet said...

I'm so sorry about your new shoe! Hope your foot heals quickly!
Blessings,
Janet

Ouch! Hope your foot heals soon!

Jackie said...

Oh no! I just got out of my boot...was stuck in that thing for two months for stress fractures and inflamed arthritis. Hopefully you'll be up and kickin' again before you know it!
