If only…

If only I loved flip flops.

If only I loved flip flops, I would have an unending supply of cutesy summer shoes.

If only I loved flip flops, I would have easy on/off protection for my tootsies when walking on hot pavement.

I only I loved flip flops, I would be able to snarf up all these cute shoes I see in the stores.

I think I have had old woman feet since I was a child.

I don’t like that thingy that goes between your toes. It makes me nuts.

So, I can’t wear flip flops.

I am resigned to the fact that I must wear sandals that don’t cause my toes separation anxiety. 

It is a challenge, and once I find a pair that fit, I usually wear them until they fall apart.

The last pair lasted me almost 10 years – and I’d be wearing them this summer again if my geriatric cat hadn’t mistaken them for a litter box.


They are now filling up a landfill somewhere. Stinky.

So, I am on the hunt for new sandals this summer. Something that is cute, feminine and most importantly, comfortable.

Something like these:

Who on earth would by these?

And, while I’m on the subject, what is up with all the gladiator sandals out there right now?

I guess they are marketing them to the teenage crowd who hasn’t learned the lesson many of us 40-somethings have: Comfort is more important than fashion.

Ah, well.

Off to find some sandals for my feet.

  1. LOL – we are so alike. I hate hate hate that little thing between my toes. I have never been able to wear them. I am struggling with finding any that don’t have that this year. I found one pair at payless, but I need to find more. Would you believe my feet are one size smaller? I didn’t think feet changed size. 🙂


  2. Two peas in a pod! 🙂 I wondered about the foot size thing. I would be happy if mine went down a size or half-size. Unfortunately, though, that would mean MB could wear my shoes. Good? not good? not sure yet. 🙂
