...if the shoe fits

Hello. Are your feet tired yet from all of the Holiday running around? Shoes, like mattresses, should be of the highest quality. Those ads stating "buy one, get one free" equals one pair, right? Maybe not, but don't skimp or you can't skip. Some cultures use shoes as a way of protest. Hopefully they don't go to Payless for that. On this day in 2008 President George W. Bush made his fourth and final (planned) trip to Iraq as president and almost got struck by two shoes thrown at him by Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi during a farewell conference in Baghdad. Shoeing, throwing shoes and/or showing the sole of one's shoe or using shoes to insult are forms of protest primarily associated with the Arab world. Whatever one thinks about a world leader, show some respect, don't shoe a lack thereof! Between UPS and USPS boxes, I am up to my neck in them, but am happy that orders keep coming in. Have a great day, show some soul but not sole and if you want a great gift for a friend or loved one, get them a pair of quality shoes. Dear friends own Wallach Shoes so keep it in the family. You shop, they ship. Shown today is the "Florentine Ceramic Footed Planter." Get it? 'Footed.'
