So how long has it been since you bought tennis shoes? This year? Last year?

Brace yourself! I haven't bought tennis shoes in 17 years. Yep. 1986 was the last time. I bought black Reeboks in the summer after my senior year in high school. I'm pretty sure that I bought them at Hackney's in North Hills Mall. Scary that I can remember that.

Well, I guess that I should say that I hadn't bought tennis shoes in 17 years until today. Yep. I finally decided to do it because Andrew & I are going to DC this weekend, and I have nothing to walk around in.

I walked in Just for Feet, told the sales guy that I knew nothing about buying sneaks, and begged for his help. I tried on two pairs and bought the second a cute pair of white socks with pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness and insoles that help with arch support. Anyway, I spent about $105. Ouch.

For the most part, I think most tennis shoes that I see people wearing are heinously UGLY. I guess that's mostly why I don't wear them. I bought a pair of Reeboks (again), and I like them pretty good so far.

They look really funny on my feet though. Well, at least, they do to me. So don't laugh. :P
