Guilty SecretPosted: June 18, 2010
I actually like these sandals…
They’re the kind of sandals that the stereotypical “square” would wear with socks and too short trousers, but I really am quite fond of them. In fact, I’ve liked these sandals my entire life. When I was in infant school my teacher Miss Williams had a pair and I used to envy them then. I don’t think I’ve spotted these since those days but they perfectly symbolise this “age of austerity” we’ve entered by eschewing any reference to fashion in favour of function. This is footwear for the summer. Full stop.
Would you wear them? I’m not sure I would because you’d need one helluv an ensemble to de- frumpicise them and make them work. Plus, with my fat feet I’d probably look like I’m only wearing them because they’re the only things my huge footsies can get into, so I doubt I could carry them off.
A nicer choice in a similar vein are these Margiela sandals that are a hundred times more stylish but unfortunately, 190 more pounds.
