shit shoes

Originally uploaded by adelaide writer

This is one half of one of the worst pairs of shoes I have ever owned. They are quite uncomfortable because the soles are thin and give no real support. By the end of the day my feet ache. The thin soles also mean that during winter my feet are nearly always cold. As you can see, they are also quite grubby, though that is not the fault of the thin soles.

    yeah, they’re pink! How much can you ask of shoes beyond pinkness?

    But, but, but they are Cons! Surely you can forgive Cons?

    That is why they are the shoe of choice for 15 year old Tuvaluan boy –
    15 year old boys barely realize they HAVE feet.

    They aren’t Cons.

    oh I thought they were Cons. The skaters were good but the ones which looked like that (and were ankle sneakers)were everything you described. canvas is not your foot friend.

    These are the fair trade ones. I’m glad to hear the others were like this too.

    PS hello Caz Za. Sorry, that was rude of me.
    And hello Kate too – nice to see you again.

    Are yours pink too?

    Hmmm, no …see earlier post on pink. They’re denim blue.

    Oh, yes. And in fact, it was that post gave me the idea for this post.

    i have ones that look like that. they’re from target and are not cons. they have no star.
    they are comfy for a little while, but they end up hurting my little toe. i have hit them with a hammer where they hurt. you know, just cos. it actually worked a little

    They’re my shoes! Okay, they’re not, because mine are Cons. Yeah, not the comfiest but I do love them.
