In celebration of Crocs

Well OK I'm not actually celebrating Crocs per-say because although I'm an avid Croc wearer, we all know that they are a fairly unattractive clown shoe, but they are so comfy and since being a mum a quick to put on shoe that is comfortable whilst carrying one and sometimes two children is of upmost importance.

Thats why I am astounded my the new design in shoes.  When do they think women are going to wear these?  They certainly are not going to want to be walking outside.  I often don't wear shoes but anyone who likes to go barefoot knows that walking on tippy toes is painful, the balls of your feet are just not made to walk on rocks, gravel, metal grates etc on their own.  You also wouldn't want to wear these out to somewhere busy where everyone else is in heels, I mean your toes are just waiting to get stomped on by another pair of stilettos.

Plus if you look at the X-Ray of a woman's foot while wearing stilettos and how deformed the bones look whilst in them, well you have to wonder why we ever wear heels at all.

Now don't get me wrong, when I'm dressing up I love a pair of heels as much as the next woman (although it has been a long while since I have been that dressed up, it just feels wrong to carry a child while wearing heels) but after seeing these photos of what my poor feet are enduring for the sake of fashion, I might reconsider it ....... mind you if I had a reason to wear my hot pink satin stilettos I think id get over it for the night.

I've never worn stilettos, because my sense of balance just isn't that good. I do wear heels, but certainly not every day. I shudder to think what I did to my feet waitressing in three-inch heels for two years.

But I don't think the issue with those gold shoes is even the heels.

I think the issue is that they are seriously the ugliest things I've ever seen in my life and that includes the so-called gladiator boots and also those furry boot-things that were so fashionable a few years ago, which looked as though you'd shoved your feet into a couple of Muppets. Muk-luks, maybe? Or maybe I just made that word up.

Come on you know you want a pair :) I'm also thinking that there is no outfit that would ever be complimented by those shoes .... Unless you were a call girl perhaps and then they are extremely impractical

Gold lame mini-skirt.

Gold lame mini-dress, maybe.

If you happened to be living in 1974.
