    you no longer can fit into but you love them so much you can't bare to part with them. I have a pair of navy blue wedges with a braided skinny rope top. Almost like a basket weave top they are hard to describe but I have never seen a pair since like them and they were so comfortable you could wear them casual or dressy I got them around 1980 and they hardy show any wear. I just wish they fit but I won't get rid of them no matter what.

    I did till my DGD found and fell in love with them. She's 14yrs. She said they were the coolest shoes she ever saw/ I got them in 1982. So how could I say no.

    Yes I do believe I have the shoes I wore for my wedding 40 years ago. They were a low heal as I just got over a broken leg but I think I still have them!! Somewhere is la la land!

    I have a pair of pink leather granny type boots. I bought them in Toronto on a trip with my best friend in 1987.

    I have stuff like that. In the past I've felt a little silly keeping things I know I'll never wear or use again...but I am okay with it now. I think it's good to keep some things just b/c you like them so much and the memoriers are wonderful.

    My daughter cleaned me out 18 years ago. I was glad to see my high wedges and a pair of red slingbacks go to a good home. Ankle fusion ends the very high heels.

    I don't, but I have some that are completely worn out and should be tossed.
