I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too....

At Target tonight, I noticed a disturbing trend in shoes....


Anyone else think of the wicked witch of the east, and her little dead shriveled toes? Do people really want their feet to look and/or feel like that? ew. I even tried them on in hopes that there was some amazing comfort reason for the absurd elastic placement. Nope.
As I was pondering these "shoes" a man walked over with his 11-12 yr old daughter apparently back-to-school shopping. He pointed these out to try on, and as if reading my, mind she said, "Daaaaad, they look like elf shoes!"
I literally laughed and told her I agreed. The Dad gave me a bit of a dirty look, my guess is it's because they were probably the cheapest shoes there, or he was annoyed I was reinforcing the fact that he was an "out of style Dad."

On another note...I may, or may not have bought 4 pairs of (non-withered-witch) shoes tonight. I work at a school so lets just say it was back to school shopping.

These remind me of Ballet slippers, and no they are not comfortable. Can you say no padding.

your post is hilarious! I completely agree with you... While I was in Brazil I saw some of those but in high heel style... pretty weird!!
