Robert Zur – ‘Petra’ Driving Shoe

This year, I made the (seemingly obvious) resolution to stop wasting money on uncomfortable shoes.   Ever since I moved downtown, I had to make the switch from gorgeous but uncomfortable shoes, to heels that I am able to walk in for several blocks.  My previous strategy was to buy an assortment of shoes and only keep the 1-2 that worked out in the end (ugh, so wasteful right?).  Now, I’ve been making the concerted effort to buy fewer pairs…
