Its the style of sandal shoe that is aparently popular this season. I hate it. It looks ridiculous and I really dont see me purchasing a pair of those ever.

Oh, come on Mara! Not even flip flops?  wink.gif

It's so comfy to have your feet hangin' loose, not strangled by socks n' sneakers.  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

My cutest shoes are my open-toed, warm weather shoes. Not real fond of the foot upkeep, though. It's a real hassle. I must shrink at least half an inch in height when I scrape the barnacles off the ol' footies built up from the winter.

I got my pedicure already.  biggrin.gif

I actually got this very thoughtful gift for Christmas called Pedi-Egg and I gotta say it's AMAZING!!!  You use it right when you come outta the shower about once a week to remove any nasty parts of the foot, leaving behind smooth, beautiful feet.  No more gnarly feet!

Especially not flip-flops!  I like a shoe to feel secure on my foot, not slap-banging around on the heel.  Plus you can't sneak up on anyone when you're wearing those. laugh.gif

A lot of it's my foot structure.  I have very high arches, and they don't like to go without support.  Most sandals don't provide enough and you really can't put supports in sandals.  If you've ever strained the fascia that runs across the arch, from toe to heel, you know how painful that can be.  You end up pronating to avoid the pain, and that causes other problems.

I used to go through 3 pairs of huarache sandals every summer - Unisa made some that were great and had good support.  They were closed at the toe, though.
