French Shoes

A fan of french tennis shoes, I stumbled upon the Bensimon shop while we were roaming the streets of Paris for our anniversary. I felt like a kid in a candy store! So many options and patterns and sizes to choose from — my heaven. Although these shoes are sold all over the US including at Madewell and Shopbop, they were much cheaper in Paris (even with the euro conversion) and had a bigger selection.

Not only did the store carry my size but they have KID’S SIZES, too. Of course, the smallest size is too big for Big-Girl-Zoe, but I couldn’t resist getting them for the future. My one regret is that I didn’t buy MORE of them.
