Benefits And Promises

Making a decision can be hard but it is something you have to do, you look at the line of potential candidates and have to decipher which pair will fit your needs, then if you are not happy with your choice it’s up to you to either impeach them so to say, or live with your decision no matter how uncomfortable you are.

Sometimes you end up with a pair that was not exactly what you wanted, I remember about four years ago I was looking at a pair I thought would work out, but now I can see my fears were correct about the pair I ended up with, should have dumped them then.

Will a new pair be able to repeal all the bad things the last pair created? The old pair may have started off with grand promises, but the underlying support ended up being thin and weak at best, adding more support is just throwing good money after bad in the end, most times it really doesn’t gel.

While on vacation Cindy and I had several discussions concerning her choice for the perfect pair, although my ideas are different at times, it is her decision to choose what is right for her, I vote for this pair because they feel right, but she votes for another because they look good.

I guess when it comes to getting women to buy what you have, it’s all about the look, cute sells and comfort takes a back seat at times to empty promises, the fit may not be perfect but if it looks good then the woman’s vote has been bought.

I on the other hand will go for what fits correctly and will last, in spite of what is brought up in the debate process, I see through the empty promises of lasting comfort and new ideas about how my sole will be supported, I wont buy it now and accept an apology later for the failure, let me worry about what fits correctly, I will decide once I have found a pair to fit my needs, rather than buy into the rhetoric of someone else’s idea about my sole.

Cindy on the other hand does look at the fit, the campaign slogan for this one does get her attention, but most times it comes down to the look, the promise on certain days that there will be no taxes does sell, so now she has three different pairs to decide on.

I have spent hours with her discussing the benefit of each one, where did this one actually come from, was it made here or actually somewhere else? I have also spent hours just sitting and watching her try out the different platforms, actually trying to make the cute ones work.

Don’t ever worry about cute, listen to the benefits and promises of each one and make an informed decision, go for what fits your lifestyle properly, feels good, and has the quality you deserve.

The decision you make will walk right into your life and be with you for a long time, unless you attempt to hide them in the closet, the perfect pair is out there but sad to say what we are looking for is not always available.

Shoe shopping should not be this hard, three pairs of shoes in one trip should make anyone happy, aren’t you glad I wasn’t talking politics.

    1. It would have worked with jeans also, but then we would have been poking fun at me rather than Cindy Ha Ha

  3. BRILLIANT post, Jimmy!!!!

    Love how you cleverly wove two different experiences into one; ending with the one I had I feeling your were referring to.

    As I shared in one of my previous comments, this is gonna be the hardest election to choose from because I don't like either.

    Again, great post, buddy!

    1. Hey Ron, Funny how the two subjects can be such a pain, I actually came up with this while sitting in a shoe store with Cindy :^)

      This election is going to be a tough one, I actually know who I am voting for already and I guarantee you it's neither of the two getting all of the attention.

      Thank You Buddy

  6. Have mercy, I hate to shop! If I find something that works, cute, or not, I usually buy multiples, just so I don't have to repeat the process any time soon.

    1. Same here, I am actually so picky on what I want and most times I feel they are not selling what I am looking for anymore.

  7. You had me fooled right to the end, Jimmy. Thank goodness you were NOT talking politics. I have to say I'm with you about the shoes, it's no good them looking good if they kill my feet....lol.

    1. Valerie, I actually wore a pair of steel toed hikers for years because they were comfortable, they were not the nicest looking shoes I ever owned but they did feel good, now all of a sudden that particular shoe has been discontinued--go figure.
