While the rain has let up, it will be back. It’s November, after all. So there was no reason not to pursue my goal of seasonally-appropriate shoes — and on Monday, I finally found some that I liked. They also met all my criteria: suitable for wet weather, low-heeled, wearable in town or country, and not like anything I already own (since more shoes from the US will eventually find their way here).

Ta-dah! They’re from Strover, made in Spain and all leather, except for the rubber outsole. Not horribly expensive, either. And quite comfy! All in all, I’m rather pleased with myself…
