Walking through Commerce

Some days when the weather is very nice I like to drive to the shops and look at what is going to be in fashion for the next season. Not only am I getting exercise but every once in a while I like to buy something for myself. This creates a reward system for keeping my blood circulating and part of my brain responds very well to such incentive. Sometimes I will even make that reward a cinnamon roll.

On this particular day the sun was shining very brightly and a slight breeze blew the loose strands of hair out of my face. I did not have any particular goal or purchase in mind but had considered purchase of another pair of Born shoes. The pair I currently owned was very stylish and durable. I was certain that adding another pair to my wardrobe would benefit me greatly.

However I was very unfamiliar with this area of my town and was unsure where I would be able to buy Born shoes. A reputable firm like Born would certainly post a sign in the window of any supportive retailers and as yet I had not seen any. I did see an ice cream shop so I stopped for a quick chocolate single scoop cone with extra sprinkles before I continued on my quest.

Almost instantly when the idea entered my head to buy Born shoes I became obsessed. What had begun as a leisurely stroll became a sugar fueled trek to the nearest shoe store to determine if they had Born shoes. I knew of one shoe store nearby but it was nearly four blocks to get there and I was on foot. If only I had worn my Born shoes on that day! The brand offers unparalleled comfort and quality at such a reasonable price.

By the time I reached that shoe store I had no choice but to purchase a new pair. My flip flops were completely blown and I was barely able to hobble into the store and sit down. The sales attendant came over to ask what I was seeking and I told her. She smiled and escorted me over to the display where the store had several very attractive pairs of Born shoes available. I also needed socks and she was able to find some light cotton ones that would wick sweat away from my feet to keep them from developing an assortment of problems. Indeed my shopping was successful.
