No Pain, No Gain ... ?

I've always been an ardent follower of the quotes
"No Pain, No Gain" and "Beauty Hurts".

Lately though, I've noticed that my feet are yelling "Please call Social Services, this girl abuses us!!!"
Due to this, I am going to clean out my closet ... my shoe closet, that is.
This is something that I have never done. Literally. The only shoes I've ever thrown out are the ones that I've outgrown or shred to pieces because of overwear.
I am a pack rat, I'll openly admit to that.

I will donate all the shoes that are half a size (or more) too big on me (unless they have straps around the ankle) and the shoes that I've never worn/only worn once.
If I have the original box --which is very likely-- I'll give them the box, too.

Have you ever had to do anything of the sort?
I feel like I'm going to suffer while picking out the shoes and even more when placing them in another person's hands.
But hey, at least it'll be like a Fashion Reachout Program, in which you make fashion available to everyone...
(Yes, I'm just trying to make myself feel better).

I'll post up pictures after I've decided which pairs to donate.


  1. Wow, this sounds like a big job, cause I saw the pictures of you moving your shoes to your new house :S I have never really done anything like that but its probally because I don't actually own many shoes! I know, mad :) Anyway Good luck!!!

  2. This is a brave step (and will free up space in the wardrobe for new entries? ;-) A friend of mine recently did something similar because she read that feet get bigger with age, so that old shoes might not fit anymore; but I haven't noticed this with my feet (yet). xoxo

  3. That is so brave of you... I have so many shoes but I want to sell them (there are so many that I haven't even worn yet - and it's been more than 6 months already).

    Feel so guilty.
