But at the same time, do I need more shoes? The simple and realistic answer is NO. I don't and I am fortunate enough that I don't have to worry about keeping shoes on my feet or my child's feet or even shoes that I buy for my husband that he has never worn. If you're like me and don't need new shoes but feel like you want to make a shoe purchase, you could always donate to Soles 4 Souls, a non-profit that is helping to "wear" out poverty one shoe at a time. You can donate shoes or make a monetary donation, both of which I know will make you feel good.
So if you're feeling like buying shoes, then buy them but if you feel like buying shoes and know you don't need any (like me!) consider donating to a worthwhile charity!
