    It had my name on it!

    I don't know if this has happened to anyone else but yesterday when I went to a shoe shop, I saw a pair of shoes I really liked, turned them over and found the style literally was my name (Kim). Had to buy them of course.

    Funny though when I spoke to the shop assistant, she said she found a pair of shoes once with her name on them (Jessie).

    I know it sounds trivial but lately work has been really crazy. And yesterday was pretty stressful and I had a long day. I suppose it just brightened my day up and made me feel good.

    Cool! I've yet to find a style with mine on them (except that any comfortable shoe has "my name on them", LOL). I did however hear my name in the latest ancestry.com ad aired yesterday for St. Pat's -- something like, "See if you have a Bridget or a Patrick in your family"; it was cute, too, because my grandfather's name was Patrick!

    -Bridget

    Anyone else think there were shoes named Aussie Willy when reading the title?

    There was once a line of clothing called Lori Ann - and those are my names (first and middle)

    It is pretty awesome when things like that happen IMO and it is great that it brightened things up for you at a good time!

    Thanks for sharing

    When I was younger, my mom found a fabric with my name on it and made me a skating dress from it! Wicked coral color!

    Your shoes are awesome. Mine should be burned. And then the ashes should be burned, in case they try to recreate themselves. A shoe that hideous has to be eville.

    My mum bought a plant called 'my name, the ice dancer'. Technically I'm not an ice dancer but close enough!

    Here is a picture of the shoes named after me. Not the best angle to look at them from and they do look better real than in the photo.

    Boots with my name on

    I've bought things solely because they were called Cherry Flip before. I remember a nail varnish and a yoghurt
    I am too long away from water;
    I have a need of water near.

    I just did a quick search for shoes with my name, and there seems to be a "Jessica" shoe for any occasion:

    Sparkly Jessica

    Heavy Duty Jessica

    Casual Jessica

    and

    Sporty Jessica
