What is a Fashion Accessory?

I get the feeling when I pick up blogging prompts/challenges, that they are aimed at women. So in the 52-week one I'm doing now, the next prompt is "Your biggest fashion accessory." Yeah.

Listen, I'm an old, grumpy, and overweight guy. I don't do fashion. I do comfortable.

About the only fashion accessory I have are my shoes. I wear running shoes no matter what. After four years in the military and 20 years in the corporate world, I'm done wearing shoes that aren't comfortable. So even when I wear a sport coat, I wear running shoes. Because they are comfortable.

What I do is I go to Big 5 Sporting Goods (I don't know if they are a national chain) and buy an ASICS gel running shoe. They usually cost about $50. It was so nice when a Big 5 opened in the town I live in. Before I'd have to travel to Spokane or Tri-Cities to buy shoes.

It takes a few days for them to break in. I have weird feet. My arch is very high. So I have to get the shoes to conform to my feet. But when they do, they are oh-so-comfortable.

So if you see me, no matter where I am, I will be wearing running shoes. And believe me, I don't run. I barely walk.
