Sandals from a major discount store are more affordable and common, but they cannot compare to the luxurious comfort and elegance of handmade leather sandals. Handmade sandals can be worn during all seasons, and despite the strange looks I get, I think you would understand my reluctance to part with them if you’d ever tried a pair.
When I wore mass produced sandals, I wasn’t very pleased with their level of quality. First, they made my skin itch. Second, they caused can cause problems with some feet. Finally, after getting a giant blister, I decided not to wear sandals any more, assuming that all sandals were made like mine.
My best friend used to kid around with me, mocking my dislike of sandals. She insisted that I should put on a pair of custom leather sandals like hers, because their great quality would make me want to wear them forever. I didn’t believe her, because the memory of my bad experience was too fresh in my mind.
I was astonished when she bought me a pair of “handmade leather sandals” for my birthday. I was a bit agitated and dumbfounded, to be totally honest. She was adamant that I would love them, and nobody would ever be able to talk me into removing them once I put them on. To humor her, I put them on my feet to try them out.
My facial expression made her burst out laughing because she knew I was instantly addicted. I never knew that sandals could feel so good. It is not an overstatement to say that my feet felt better in these sandals than they feel when I am barefooted.
If you are one of the lucky ones to have a spring birthday, handmade leather sandals are the best gift to receive. Enjoy them through the spring and summer. You will be tempted to wear them in the winter because you love them so much. Go ahead and pack them away during the winter, because sandals usually are not worn in the winter.
My friend thankfully assisted me yet again. She revealed to me that her sandals were worn all winter without being uncomfortable. At first I felt weird by not packing my sandals away and tried to wear them only on pleasant, springlike days. I soon found myself missing my sandals, though, and trying them out as the days got progressively colder. Now I always have comfortable feet because I always wear my sandals, no matter what season it is.
