Social Experiment: Shoe’s Untied.

So I bought a new pair of shoes about a month ago. They were on clearance at Target for $8, how could I pass that up?! Technically I should have since they were 1/2 a size smaller than what I wear but they are doing the job so far. My big toe clicks at night when I wear them…I wonder if that’s a bad thing?
