Cruel Shoes

Because my son might have mentioned that these shoes aren't very attractive or trendy (I think the words "ugliest shoes I've ever seen" might have been mentioned)...


I present to you these "keen" shoes.


They might not be very attractive, but they ARE trendy (and waterproof)! And speaking of unattractive, get a load of that left ankle...I twisted it on my walk today. It is just now starting to turn purple. Ain't it purdy?

Don't forget to check out the music video on my sidebar. You won't be disappointed!

As one who is always either barefoot or in flip flops, they just look kind of... uncomfortable. LOL

Healing for your ankle.... :)


Peace,

dear me
those first shoes are a puzzle: are they for the garden, or evening wear?

butterfly girl said...

I like them both!

They make cute little charms to dress up the first pair, ever see them?

Hope you heal quickly!

Menchie said...

Ah, crocs. i hear they are very comfortable. for some reason, i find it very cute on babies and little girls. my daughter, to my chagrin, refuses to own one which is kind of a good thing because it is quite pricey for a pair of shoes.

ThomasLB said...

I'm past the age of vanity. If it's comfortable, it's on me.

Laurie said...

Chani, actually both pairs are quite comfortable. My ankle is much better today, thanks.

Ur-spo, they are multi-use shoes, but I don't think I'd wear them to the prom...

Butterfly, I actually saw those charms you mentioned at the Croc store in Billings. My cats would have a field day with them. ;-)

Menchie, my cousin's kids all wear them, so of course I had to have a few pairs myself. They are ugly, but oh so comfy.

Thomas, Amen, brother! I am so with you!

Anvilcloud said...

Actually, I thought those shoes were very trendy. Are they passe already?

Dave said...

I own crocs and I love them they are ultra light and very comfortable. Who cares what they look like? We all do!!!!!

MsLittlePea said...

I like the shoes. And singing veggies? Someone's after my own heart.

Elevate that ankle.

Within Without said...

Oooooh, where can I buy a pair? (*Runs away*)

Laurie said...

AC, they are very comfy! I think they are still stylin to some, apparently not to my son, though.

Dave, I agree! They are very comfy...but then so are my new ones. :-)

Mspea, it's all better today, and I love the Veggie Tales too!

WW, I know you secretly covet my Crocs... ;-)

Cathy said...

Owwwie. Hope you're continuing to mend. Did you have 'cruel' shoes on when that happened. All my shoes are ugly because I refuse to torture these old toes again. Ever.

I love that pirate song! Made me hungry :0)

KGMom said...

Crocs may be ugly but they are so popular, esp. with kids. Maybe you are still a kid at heart?!
New shoes are great looking.

NatureWoman said...

I like the looks of the keens. Are they good for walking long distances?

Laurie said...

Cathy, I twisted it because I'm a klutz, not because of the shoes. I was looking at a bird overhead in a tree and didn't see a gopher hole. :-) It's all better now.

KG, I am most definitely a kid at heart.

Pam, I walked about 4 miles today, so I'd have to say yes, they are good for walking fair distances.

Carol said...

I loathe Crocs. Here in hippy country everyone lives in them. I agree with Wolf; they are they ugliest shoes. The others are nice, though. Your ankle should be elevated.

Mary said...

I love my crocs. Ugly, but the most comfortable shoes I own. Mine are off-white and I feel like I'm wearing bedroom slippers when I venture out with them.

Since my ankle surgery, I love wearing anything on my feet that keeps me hoppin!

Laurie said...

Carol, I know they are ugly, but they are so comfy, I swear it makes up for their looks. (That's my story anyway...) ;-)

Mary, Don't tell Wolf or Carol, but I have t-w-o pair (dark blue and the lovely sage green pair in the photo).

Gina said...

I'm not fond of that particular type of croc, but they actually make other VERY cute styles, like a Mary Jane and some other stuff.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Actually, I like both pairs. Hope your ankle heals fast.

Laurie said...

Gina, I know they are ugly beyond belief, but they sure are comfortable.

Nick, glad you like. I am going to purchase another pair of the Keen's I think. Maybe in purple this time. ;-)
