Depending on the level of hardiness for pairs of shoes I own, I tend to often want the same pair repeated at the end of a long life. This can be difficult given that most shoe styles don't stick around in the shoe stores for more than a year, if that. However, I got lucky this go around and was able to purchase a new pair of my favorite walk around shoes from the last year. Silly and insignificant, I know, but here it is anyway.
Note: I thought I was getting the same color of the shoe, but clearly not.
