Shoes shoes shoes

How many pairs of shoes do you own? Don't even ask me. I'm just a fool for shoes. The DSW up in Yonkers is my place of worship.

For my impending trip to India, I'm just going to have to use the biggest suitcase I own.
But have you ever noticed how a lot of shoes can make a BIG suitcase look, well, SMALL? 
Consider Exhibit A:
Exhibit A

No. This is ridiculous. I'm not schlepping 10 pounds of footwear. 
After considerable hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing, I eliminated some of my beloved shoes. 
Now look at Exhibit B:

Exhibit B
Tada! I think this will work. My brand new Teva sandals are very comfortable, and I won't freak out if they get wet. My blue slippers are cute, and those little brown leather slides are pretty versatile.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Namaste!

Gotta have a pair of flip-flops! Le'see...work boots, comfort walkers & mocassins. Nice and well worn :) I usually wait 'til they fall apart ere getting new ones, heh.

And of course, your sandals will come in handy :)

You are heading to the cheapest place on earth.You won't need shoes! Then remember, most snake bite deaths in India are caused by people treading on cobras!

Clodia, and MagicEye, Thank you for coming to my blog! And I am a bit disappointed to not see Mumbai, bt I am still very grateful for this rare opportnity to visit India twice in a lifetime.

Subbs,
I added flip-flops after I took the second photo. HeeHee.

Baino, my Fukwit Friend!
Thank you for the dire snake-bite warning. I will try my best to avoid cobras.

i got some brand new TEVA's too - in red! so i am taking tevas, flips, brown sandals, and some slip on black shoes. Now to decide upon the luggage - remember we may have to shlep our luggage around with us, so pack light.

Should i take the carryon luggage or the medium size with pull handle and wheels...hmmm.
