Listen, the news is tough, and we all need moments of escape from the horror to recuperate and prepare for the next onslaught, and I can talk about shoes all the livelong day, so welcome to the OMG SHOEZ thread.

Got a favorite pair of shoes you want to share? Bought a new pair about which you're super excited? Have a recommendation to make, or want to caution us away from a purchase you regret? Want to solicit suggestions for a specific event, a foot issue, an elusive something for which you've been hunting? Having trouble finding something particular on a budget? Have at it in comments!

I'm sorry it's been awhile since the last OMG SHOEZ thread, but I haven't had any new shoes to show off. And I still don't — which is why I'm featuring a favorite pair of old shoes today!

I got this pair of Softspots a few years ago, and I have worn the hell out of them:

Although lots of people (quite understandably) hate the look of any scuffed shoes, I think the scuffs on this weathered material just add character, so I don't even worry about them.

The shoes have a little heel on them, but the soles are, like all of Softspots' shoes, extremely comfortable. I have walked countless miles in these things.

They have held up so well. Still incredibly comfy, and the soles remain in great condition. Love them!

So, that's what up with me! What's up with you?
