Why New Shoes Shouldn't Be Kept Hidden in the Closet

If you're like me, I love Converse Chuck Taylor shoes.  I wore them all throughout college, for everday leisure, and at every job that allowed it.  I've worn them at formals, funerals, and I even wore a brand new black and white pair on my wedding day.  This is definitely my favorite type of toewear. 

Last week I found an amazing pair for $15 at a Converse store.  Lucky me, they were on clearance and was 50% off.  They were blue with a special smooth blue material used instead of the regular canvas.  The unique quality of the shoes and low price was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.

This pair was way fancier than the shoes I normally wear.  A part of me wanted to keep them nice and not wear them. Then the other part of me smacked the other part and said, "Wear them! Why not?"

I came to enlightened realization that life really is limited and short, so I might as well wear them while I can. These shoes really do rock.

Just like many of the blessings I've been given in life, it would be a shame to keep them hidden away in the closet 94% of the time.
