Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine that a pair of shoes could inspire, transform and deliver profound and unexpected lessons.
Yet that is exactly what the red shoes have done since wearing began in July 2012.
The Red Shoe Project was created with a dash of impish fun to explore and document the experiences of a variety of wearers. The red shoes have not disappointed. While most of the stories have been upbeat and inspiring a few took wearers by surprise….anger was provoked in friends and disapproving family prohibited the wearing of the shoes.
So that’s life… surprises abound! We learn that we may push beyond our own comfort zones and then land smack dab flattened to the wall of someone else’s. We evolve in different ways and times. Gotta love us all.
I remain fascinated by the raw emotion that can be packed into a shoe.
Having said that…..You are invited to participate in the RED SHOE PROJECT.
All mid life women with size 8 ½ – 9 ½ feet and either a love of shoes or a sense of fun (or both) are invited to participate (apologies to small footed sisters and ‘young’ women).
When, where and how you wear the red shoes is up to you.
The average wearing time has been one week and the more they are worn appears to heighten the experience and the FUN!
As a red shoe wearer and participant in the Red Shoe Project you agree to document your experience – how you felt, what happened, who you met, lessons offered and insights gained.
Red shoe stories will be shared on the Red Shoe Zone – helping mid life women fearlessly (re)discover self.
