I was sixteen when I bought my first pair of earth shoes. It was the 1970's in small-town Michigan. I had my first job as a waitress in a bingo hall. When I went to the mall (also a new development) and paid for my first pair of shoes -all in one-dollar bills I imagine. They were brown and black and I felt so very cool. I was hip and different and comfortable all at the same time. I loved those shoes! Fast forward forty-some years and I am shopping at a luxury department store. I pick up a gorgeous pair of shoes and my heart leaps when I see the brand name! I am now the very proud owner of at least six pairs of Earth and Earthies shoes. They still make me feel cool and hip and comfortable but I will never forget my first!
