My foot never healed after breaking it across my instep six years ago. Well, technically both ends of the break healed but not to each other, resulting in a funky joint right in the middle of my foot. It’s painful at times, but more of a nuisance until this week when I tore the ligaments that hold up my arch. On my doctor’s recommendation I bought a specific pair of shoes costing a few hundred dollars. For that price I expect to get a matching bag. I’d prefer one that doesn’t necessarily reflect my new lifestyle from spending too much on shoes.
