I have not bought into the whole Normcore thing. But while I was out and about on Monday, my faithful duck shoes gave up the ghost. That’s right, the last five months been so long and hard that it outlasted my winter footwear. Fortunately this calamity happened while I was at my dentist’s office, which is a block away from a Winners where I found these Birkis for like $40. I’m not a fan of flag waving — especially when it’s not my flag — so I plan to paint these over. I’ve just can’t make up mu mind about what colour to use. Red? Yellow? Sparkles? Black?
