Murdo Girl…Corrective shoes

Do you know what corrective shoes are? They’re just like they sound.

One year, when I was five or six, one of my mom’s friends noticed that I was walking in such a way that I was virtually standing on the sides of my shoes. Well, that really bugged mom and when she saw me doing it, she yelled at me to, “STOP!”


Of course, those kinds of tactics never work. Have you ever seen anyone stop doing something because even a person with some authority told them to “stop?”

I didn’t even get the somewhat bearable Mary Janes. My mother’s friend, Elsa, who was normally a very nice lady, told Mom that the shoes had to be tied, “tight” to work. I ended up with the brown Buster Bowns. I thought they would never wear out.

I thought


Imagine this dress in pink with pink tights and brown Buster Browns. I’m pretty sure I started a new fad and the next week the whole town sold out of Buster Browns. (See!  now you made me lie.) will have to admit, I don’t walk on the sides of my shoes anymore.

    I should be wearing corrective shoes right now. I have one leg longer so my hips are always tilted. No wonder why I have had back and knee surgery.
