Saturday Photo Hunt - "Shoes"

********************

This week's theme for the Photo Hunt, hosted by TNChick, is shoes and the only problem with this theme is that there is a guy who has an alter-ego named Kelly who does a song called "Shoes" that manages to get caught in my head every time I hear or say the word shoes. If you haven't seen it (and chances are real good if you don't watch Fuse or spend a lot of time fooling around on You Tube then you haven't) then you might want to check it out here but I warn you - it's strange and not for those easily offended!

I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do for this week's theme - my first thought was to throw everyone's shoes in a big pile and take a picture of them - but then I decided that I would just take a picture of what everyone had on their feet and go with that.

I've never been a big shoe fanatic so spend most of my time in sneakers when I'm not wearing my work boots so here you have my feet sporting their usual New Balance 601's -


Next up would be oldest daughter Amanda's Vans clad feet -

Last but not least are youngest daughter Jamie's flaming Chuck Taylor's -

Just looking at those shoes, I bet you'd be hard-pressed to tell that I had daughters and not two more boys! But they like their shoes which they say are comfortable and they're teenagers so what more could one expect??

Happy shoe-hunting to everyone!

  9. Hi Linda!
    I agree with jmb, the kids have a wide variety of shoes to choose from and many are so cool!

    However fashionable the shoes get these days, I could not buy any because of my bunions. :(

  36. Love the shoes, Linda! I remember canvas Converse sneakers from my teen years. Now it's either sandals or boots. Looking for western-style boots that won't cinch my toes!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I remember seeing the shoe video before! I love your daughters and their individuality!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Used to have Vans when I was younger and I wore them till the pair almost gave out, :D Comfy these shoes are. DD1 asked for a pair of Converse a few weeks back.

    Have a great weekend.

  44. My preference is for comfortable shoes too. And, in fact, my newest pair of footwear are a pair of New Balance sneakers (782s as opposed to your 601s)! :)

    ReplyDelete

    excellent pics!
    thanks for visiting my first photo hunter post!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I guess I have the teenage thing to "look forward to!" I kind of like the Chuck Taylors!

    ReplyDelete
  57. pretty cool shoes! I love NB.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well, personally, I would still wear Chuck Taylor high tops IF they would put some arch supports in them! And skate shoes are THE most comfortable shoes made! Sooooo... I really can't argue with either daughter!

    ReplyDelete
  59. They definitely look comfy. Happy weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  60. My kids wore Vans back in the '80's! I loved heels - the higher the better. That is to say, until I blew out my patella using a shovel! No more pretty girlie-girl shoes for me! I now have to wear "sensible" shoes, which bugs the livin' daylights out of me. Vanity, that's all it is! My chiropractor thinks it's wonderful!

    I can't imagine a supermom in any other shoes :) (At least not during the daylight hours! ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  62. Nice contrasts in styles!

    Thanks for stopping by mine :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Shoes should be comfortable, so I think all of those look just fine! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great idea to show their personalities through their shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  65. If I were to take pictures of my teenage boys' shoes they would be on the floor all over the house and not on their feet. That's where they keep their shoes, anyway. haha...

    My pictures are up.

  66. On my return visits rather late - had a busy weekend. Thanks for stopping by to see my hunt.

    Your girls - it's better with the ugly boyish shoes than the unhealthy, sharp-pointed high heels, don't you think? This way they might not be hit by corns - and the hidden lady will come out of there eventually, as much as it's appropriate for the person in question :D
