My sneakers have a widening hole in the heel. Just when sneakers get to that point where they finally look good, they wear out. Today is Amazon Prime Day, so while working between the feathers, I’ve been taking small breaks to browse sneaker bargains.

Look what turned up.


What would you call them….sandals? They look too hot to be sandals. Dress up shoes? What kind of dress would they go with? Bedtime slippers? They’d feel awful when heading out to the gritty patio to refill the bird feeder. I think I’ll pass. They are presently on sale for $39.99 if you’re interested.

A few weeks back there was some shoe talk here. Amy mocked my Birks, without even seeing their magnificent black suede uppers and solid cork lowers paired with my “f*ck this sh*t’ fashion statement socks.

 

I especially love wearing this particular foot treatment in conjunction with a conservative-ish upper body ensemble, say, jeans without holes and a simple shirt. Anyone who notices my feet realizes that maybe I’m not the nice gray haired lady they assumed. One time it was the VP at my workplace. He surprised me and I surprised him, in a good way, fortunately.

Yesterday was heavy and sad. The loss is immense. At a friend’s recent funeral service, she selected a number of funny home movies from her life to run during the reception. People gathered and laughed at E with a perm, dressed up to go clubbing in the 80’s. It was good. I’m not quite ready to look at pictures of tr ig dressed up to go clubbing in the 80’s, but at a future date I will be.

In the meantime, what’s the ugliest shoe currently on your floor? Take a picture. Show us what you’ve got.

In closing, seasoned to perfection and they don't even smell, #1 ranked in heron footwear:

Hard to beat Converse High Tops for a distinct and defining fashion statement.  R&L

As a wearer of a size 15 shoe the idea of choice is but a fantasy.

For ugly, you can't go wrong with Birks...

Veronica, you are rocking those Birks. 

Jon and Jmac, I love my chucks. I have three pairs, black, purple, lavender, in varying states of decay. As my feet have aged, chucks aren't as comfy as they once were though, the lack of arch support. Birks jack your arch right up to there. And they aren't as ugly as Crocs!

Terry I believe chucks come in size 15.

Yes, and I own 2 pair of the newest model but when you actually go to buy (as happened to me) it too 6 weeks before they had my color/size.
