Day 20: Your favourite shoes

What are your favourite shoes?

This might seem like a mundane, shallow prompt, but it’s not.

I encourage you think about WHY your favourite shoes are your favourites. Do you have different favourites for different occasions?


How do your shoes make you feel?

Do they draw compliments or comments?

Are they associated with a partiucular event?

My current faves are bright yellow Converse sneakers with rainbows on because they sum up my personality and outlook on life.

Past faves were my purple Doc Martens, which I customised with funky laces and Grolsch bottle tops and beads and doodles. I don’t have them anymore and that makes me sad; I wish I’d kept them. I had them from the age of 14 until I was about 25, and they never wore out.


Set a timer for 5 minutes and write about your favourite shoes!

Happy writing!
