May’s Winning Tale of the Sole: The Sad Case of the Mislaid Sandals
Laura in Santa Barbara, CA, wrote us this month with her “Tale of the Sole,” but, as she notes, “It’s a sad one, I’m sorry to say.” Here’s her tragic story:
Remember those Argila Alana’s that I got, oh, only a few weeks ago?
Well, silly me, I brought them to New York City on my last trip. But I also brought bronchitis. On the day we decamped from the On the Ave Hotel where we were billeted, I was feeling particularly low. And it was early, so I was jet-lagged. In any event, I remember wrapping the precious things up and THOUGHT they made it into our larger suitcase. But, alas, they did not.
When I discovered this, I immediately called the hotel, but several days had passed, and naturally, they were never turned in.
So some chambermaid is sashaying around NYC in my stunning sandals.
Honestly, this is the only thing that made me cry in the last month, when Santa Barbara nearly burned to the ground, we got a flat tire while evacuating, and Tai got a foxtail up his nose. It was the SHOES that pushed me over the edge!
But it ends happily because I just ordered those darling Chie Mihara Frederica’s! Not that I can afford them, but I just don’t care—my wound needs to be salved.
We’re sure those Frederica’s have Laura back on the upswing. And we hope winning a $100 Ped Gift Certificate for sending the best Tale of the Sole in May will also make her feel a smidge better about losing her lovely Argila sandals.
Do you have a Tale of the Sole? Tell us—and show us (we LOVE pictures!!!)—what happened to you while wearing a Ped item, and you, too, might be the recipient of $100 in Ped credit. Each month we pick the most sole-ful tale to share on the blog. Here’s hoping June’s story is less of a tear-jerker. So, let us know what in the world you’ve been doing in your Ped!

Well I feel just like “Queen for a Day” with my sad, sad tale winning me the grand prize! This will go a long way towards assuaging my sorrow . . . if only you still had them in my size then all would be as it was.
But I look forward to falling in love with some new sassy pair when the fall shipments start rolling in.
Meanwhile, I can not thank you enough, and just totally love PED and everyone who works there (especially the ones with fur).
