If someone had said to me: “One day you’ll wear pink and actually like it” I would have laughed in his/her face. And if he/she had said: “One day you’ll buy Crocs” I would have answered: “Yeah, maybe, for someone else!”
I’ve never been a fan of Crocs. I did try a pair a few years back, and yes they were comfortable but the thought of wearing them “out” was just not for me. Too bulky, too much like clogs, and way too wide. Like many of us out there, I have this ugly toes aversion, so for some wearing Crocs in the summer instead of the airy, toes-out flip-flops is a good thing. At least in Crocs I don’t have to see those ugly, dried, full of calluses toes/feet. That is the one good thing I liked about them.
By the way, this is the time of year when people with ugly toes should be doing something about it. Talk to your doctor, he might be able to help with those fungus. Go get a pedicure, you’ll see, it does feel great during and after it’s even better! I did karate, barefoot, for over twenty years and never had those ugly calluses or those cracked heels. I had (and still do!) smooth, well-maintained feet. During all those years I never once painted my toenails, never really felt the need or want.
The year we got married, since we were doing the deed on the beach, barefoot, I got a treat for my toes. I got a French manicure. I loved it. Since then, every summer I paint my toes. I also realised that I love bright colours down there. And, I have a nail on each toe! Not a little piece, or a “want to be a nail, but don’t have much room to grow” thing, but a full nail. Also, since that year, I realised that I was “turning” girlier… Things I didn’t care about much before were starting to interest me, like makeup, jewellery, etc. I wasn’t a big pink fan (the colour, because I actually really enjoy the singer!), I would wear it once in a while, I had a few tees, but it wasn’t my first choice.
Last week, we watched “The Celebrity Apprentice” and their task had to do with Crocs. I liked the company and what they are doing. I like good causes, and recycling old Crocs to send them to children in countries in need is a great idea.
Long story short, Saturday I bought these: They are narrower than the regular Crocs, which is great for me since I have long and narrow feet. The model is called "Mary Jane" and the colour is Fuchsia. I decided to get those to replace my no heels slippers. I hate to admit it, but I'm at an age when standing for hours (cooking) gets to my back. I needed something to absorb and with a little heel. These are great! They are super comfy, and with the straps I won't lose them coming down the stairs or backing up (used to do that with my other slippers). And since I was buying them, might as well get some jewels for them... Hee. A little penguin (Hubby's mascot) and a paw. Admit it, they're not that bad!
I think they're cute, and boy are they comfy! All good! BUT, these are for the house alone...
