Have you found your sole-mate?

TheodoraI read a blog post this morning from the New York Times. The author briefly discussed her inability to part with a pair of old running shoes she’d worn in high school. The post also mentioned a woman who, despite her husband’s vocal opposition, has managed to hold on to at least 30 pairs of old running shoes she’s used throughout her life.

No, seriously.  He somehow strapped stilettos onto those poor girls heads.  Here’s the strange thing:  the models made it look totally fierce.
