M is for . . . Mary Janes


I was telling my husband that I was thinking about my M for the A to Z challenge. He admitted that he hasn't been reading my posts (how can he keep up with me blogging one day then hibernating 100+ days, then blogging then catnapping?). I told him that I had my N--Naturalizer--the brand of my newest favorite shoes. I went on to say, "You know, my Mary Janes . . ." He exclaimed, "Mary Janes!" and like that my shoes jumped a letter. They are sooooo comfortable, I could jump in them all day! But I won't.

I had called these my grandma shoes when I showed them to my boys. What was I implying by calling them grandma shoes? That they look orthopedic? Or that all grandmas wear orthopedic shoes? Or that they look like old lady shoes? Or that grandmas are old ladies? I decided that I had put my foot in my mouth by calling them that, so I now call them my granola shoes. (What am I implying by calling them that?)


I used to wear Mary Janes all the time, each new pair being Mary Janes. I decided to chill on buying them and had been without for quite a few years. Now I'm considering getting these in black because they work so well with my wide feet and are so cushy. What do you think? Oh yeah, they're marked down. Now what do you think?

  1. They look pretty good to me. I will have to look for that brand soon as I need to come out of my winter boots and find some shoes.

  2. I like Mary Janes, but I love clogs. Not sure how fashion forward they are, but every time I wear a pair I can see my Aunt Susie wearing them when I was 5. Since she was the coolest person I knew, her clogs were beyond cool!

  3. I have such horrible luck with shoes that when I find something that works for my feet, that's what I stick with. Mary Janes are cute and comfortable. I say go for it!

  4. They look very comfortable. Don't think I've ever owned any, but I can see myself walking in them on vacation, for example, when we walk so long and I need comfortable shoes.

  5. I waan't too sure, but when you said "marked down..." I'm still not too sure. That is, not too sure what my wife would say about me wearing them.

  6. They sound like this grandma needs to find a pair.

  7. I love Mary Janes. They're hard to find at the moment, but whenever I see a pair I grab them!
