ugly shoe alert
we're done talking about chicago for now! i will be going back in a few weeks, although not to be admitted to the hospital, just for a follow up appointment.
meanwhile, i happened upon some of the ugliest shoes EVER. imagine if crocs were made during the 70s -- a disco croc, as it were. truly heinous.
these are brought to us courtesy of dr. scholls:
these gems are called dr. scholl's dance. ....i don't even know what to say. they make me want to cry. the good people at dr. scholl's have so much power to do good, why have they chosen to use their shoe-making prowess for evil? have you seen their exercise sandals? i think they're way cute:
simple, preppy, cute.
but then this monstrosity -- this PLATFORM CROC. where did this idea come from and how did it make it to market? most bewildering of all, people are buying it and LIKING it! don't believe me? feast your eyes on the comments here.
"My only regret is that I did not buy two pair..."
that just about blows my mind.
and in a similar vein, we have the dr. scholls harmony
these have the potential to be slightly less hideous, since they don't have that irridescent strap, but somehow i hate them just as much.
please tell me you aren't buying these. please tell me these shoes are as ugly as i think they are. 39 dollars?! 49 dollars? that's even more tragic.

Yes, I'm definitely going to have to agree with your shoe assessment. Of course, I've never been fond of Crocs in general. They remind me too much of jelly shoes, which were very popular in the eighties but hurt like crazy when you actually tired to wear them.

I couldn't agree more. they look heavy, clunky - like something that would make me trip over my own feet. Now let's just say I don't need help in that area.
Good to see you back.
