Hello

Welcome to my public thoughts on my personal life goals. In 2014, I set out to change my lifestyle, and I began with the best way I knew how - my closet. I share with you, how the road to Perfecting My Closet, is helping me achieve my ultimate life goals. 

How many steps does it take to get to the end of your soles?

How many steps does it take to get to the end of your soles?

How long does it take for you to wear your shoes down to a point where they're falling apart?

I noticed in the last several years my flats all split at the heel where the shoe meets the sole. I'm starting to wonder if it's the way I step...  

The value of my flats are in the range of $150-$250/$300 and it doesn't seem to matter how little or how much I spend on them, I get the same problem. In fact, I am hesitant to try flats that cost more than that because I don't think this is a 'get what you pay for' kinda deal. In fact, I am considering looking at less expensive options because of this.

My latest pair that have done this are my MbMj flats - I tracked how often I wore them since I got them in 2015 and I wore then 121 times. I don't walk a lot in them in a rough environments - I wear them to work and that mostly consists of spending an average of 5-10 minutes outside between buildings, and the rest of the day inside the office.

So how does this happen? That's probably an accurate amount of time I wear a pair of flats over 3 years. Do your shoes fall apart after this amount of time? Am I expecting too much? I don't recall my shoes falling apart like this as a child. I know... I'm comparing to when I was a child when I wore sneakers more than anything else.. It's not rational, I know lol. I'm just bewildered!

I've now demoted these flats to only commute wear, and weekends where I really WILL start to wear them for long walks, and wear them outside a lot more.

My work flats are now going to be my Townshoe loafers - I'm interested to see how these do since the sole is a bit thicker. Maybe I just need to wear flats that have a bit of a thicker sole.. but that leaves a lot of cute flats out of reach for me =(
