6 Word Saturday

The Agony of (Women's) The Feet

I got an e-mail from some shopping site about these adhesive sandals ...



I can see using these after a pedicure while waiting for your toes to dry.

This led me to a search for more odd shoes.

these two kinda defeat the purpose of the original design ...




How else would you walk your tarantula? ...



What evey gangsta-nista wears ...



What every gangsta wears when they sleep with the fishes ...



I'll stick with my Keds.

Jay Simser said...

I have heard of smelly feet before but the fish flip-flops take the (crab) cake. Thanks for the Saturday smiles. Have a great week-end.

Caty said...

I can't see the sticky sandals working too long...the spider shoes and the fish sandals...absolutely not!

Nora Johnson said...

I'll stick with my flats!

Great post & great blog!
Happy 6WS - and look forward to *seeing* you again next time!
Mine’s HERE!

LOLA:)

Craziness. But I might wear the first ones, for just the reason you said. Except they probably cost a bucket, so i'll probably just keep smearing my toe polish 2 minutes after it's applied.

Trisha said...

Wow - talk about weird shoes! I don't think I will be wearing any of those fashions any time soon.

bobbie said...

You found some weird one for sure. I actually bought the first ones as a joke for my oldest once.

Linda Reeder said...

Oh, those are wonderful! Thanks for the chuckle this morning.

Sparkling Red said...

Those fish-flops are ridiculous. I can only imagine that they also smell terrible! ;-)

sara said...

wow, those were hilarious. the tarantula one....just plain gross!! :)

but I do like the idea of the sticky ones after a pedicure!!!

Ron said...

Bwhahahahahahahahahaha!

OMG....what a FAAAAAAAAAAAAABULOUS post, Dianne!

You crack me up!!!

The GUN heels would be great for city living. I mean, if you're ever being mugged, all you'd have to do is lift your leg, point your heel....and SHOOT!

Bwhahahhahahhahahaha!

Thanks for the great laugh, dear lady!

X ya!

ds said...

Are those heels loaded? Thanks for the laughs & have a great weekend!

ellen abbott said...

Sandal boots?!

Linda said...

Amanda had to do an assignment this week to design three pair of shoes for her drawing class so these shoes didn't surprise me at all after the ones she dreamed up! I ought to have her scan the pics and send them to me, they'd make for an interesting blog post!

Funny what people will put on their feet and then actually be able to walk, too! I'll stick to my EMT boots and New Balance sneaks, thank you very much!

Olivia said...

Yikes!! Those last ones are too much! (And they are all crazy!)
Happy 6WS!

shopannies said...

wow those are some odd shoes

maryt/theteach said...

Dianne, these are very funny! I like the ones you can wear after pedicures... The backwards sign in the door reflection on my weekly reflection says "Tuscan Tiles." :)

Jim said...

These are neat, Dianne. Sort of like the 'spray on' bikinis.
Happy 6WS! Thanks for stopping in to see my abandoned train (blog).

LOL, LOL...Oh My Lordy! These are truly bizarre shoes, aren't they? I don't understand the shoes these days....The "wedgies", (Well, that's what they called them 'back in the day'...at least I think that's what thry called them...lol) And that was in The 1940's...Platform Heels, etc....Well...'They are baaaaack....'!
How anyone can walk in these very High High Heels, I don't know. Heels always hurt my feet like crazy....and in truth, I hated them because of that. They say it is NOT a natural position for the feet and toes, etc.
I know I couldn't wear them these days, or even for the last 20 years or more....Like you, I'll stick to my comfortable Nike-type shoes....!

And Big Hugs back to dear sweet charming Hope!

I love the gun shoes. Secret agent chicks are super hot, like that wiener girl in Chuck!

Have you ever heard of Tom’s Shoes? He gives a pair to a kid in Africa for every shoe he sells. Good shit. I can give you a link if you want it.

Arkansas Patti said...

Good heavenly days!!! Some people have a lot of time on their hands to think these up and others have to much disposable income to buy them. Funny but weird.

Daryl said...

I wonder how many foot festishists will Google you ... Those fish flops looks a little too real ..

kenju said...

The sticky sandals would be great for people with foot or toe injuries or surgery! I'll take a pair in black, please. (I wonder how long the stickiness lasts?)

Matt-Man said...

I don't know...I'd probably wear the fish. Cheers Di!!

Jeff B said...

So could those last ones be considered Flipper-Flops?

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

I have a calendar with a new shoe a day and some of these are better than what is on the calendar!

San said...

A couple of years ago or so I did a post about some high heels that were designed with the heels going backwards or something, by a Japanese designer. They looked like murder to wear, but I believe I'd be more comfortable in them than those fish flip-flops. YUK.

Bob-kat said...

I'm not sure I will be rushing to order any of those! Who wears these things?! LoL!

Just caught up on your posts again - love, love LOVE the pics of Hope. I think you DIL is upset over nothing!

Sleepypete said...

Definitely non-kinky boots and very weird ...

Oh - within about 30-60 minutes tomorrow after work, I'll have worn 3 different pairs of shoes :-)

Hilary said...

Fish flip-flops! Now I know what to get Frank for his upcoming birthday. Diane you're a genius! ;)

Lu' said...

Ha ha and I like shoes but no way Jose'
