A Tale of 2 Shoes 

Yesterday I wore my newish tan 
"sneaks" my dad used to call them
"Do you have your sneaks?"

My new sneaks are comfortable
and soft
and quiet

"You are so quiet!" someone said
as I walked down the hall. 
This is not something I am usually told. 
Quiet is something I'm still working on. 

Today I wore my newish black 
ankle boots, everyone has them now
Good for when I'm tired of regular boots, and winter

My new boots are comfortable
and rattly 
not quiet

I hear them click and bounce
as I walk in the hallway
This is not the pleasant sound my elementary teachers made
when they clicked down the hall with their pretty heels.

  1. I saw your title and had to read this slice, because I have been thinking about shoes today. On a recent snow day, I got bored and ordered a couple of pairs of cute “teacher” shoes online. They arrived and I wore the pair that were #2 pencils today- complete with “lead” tips and “eraser” heels and my name printed on the side where regular pencils say “Ticonderoga.” My middle schoolers were sooooooooo impressed. I never knew shoes were so important, or that if yours have your name on them, so are catapulted to celebrity status.

    1. That’s awesome! I’ve seen cool teacher shoes online — I really want the kind that are notebooks… My daughter painted me a pretty cool pair of pencil shoes last year, but they were the cheap sneakers from Michaels, so they weren’t very comfortable!
