My husband's new shoes arrived...



He can't understand my reluctance in going out to dinner with him and his new shoes.

A friend said her CEO came to work the other day in a similar pair - in his suit.

P.S. Thank you to Hilary for POTW "mention"!

CrazyCris said...

Natalie said...

Gives a whole new meaning to BIG FOOT!

Fab, I love them

ρομπερτ said...

I'll for sure get me one of them as well. Please have you all a wonderful Wednesday.

Brian Miller said...

congrats on the POTW! interesting shoes...someone wore them with a suit? wow.

Lori said...

I can't help but think of big gorilla feet when I see those. We have a friend who wears his black pair - guess their more formal.

Josephine said...

No, I understand your reluctance. They're awful! Men and taste for fashion... gah!

willow said...

OMG!! Those are so funny! They look like gardening socks...good for pulling weeds with your toes!

DJan said...

These don't even look comfortable! And I had NO IDEA they even existed before this. I'll pass...

Kathy G said...

I've heard about these shoes, and seen pictures, but don't know anyone who actually WEARS them. I suspect they wouldn't be that comfortable in our below-freezing weather.

ellen abbott said...

Now if they just had hair on them they would be Hobbit feet. I could never wear those. I don't even wear thongs (the footwear, not the panties tho I don't wear those either) cause I don't like the feel of stuff between my toes.

Joanne said...

There's a time and a place for everything, and that would NOT include time in a restaurant with me!

Miss Footloose said...

Hey, better these shoes than a mistress or a new Italian sports car! Your husband has a great way of expressing his creative impulses in the 2nd half of his life. Kudos to him!

Rain said...

OMG...those are shoes? LOL....that is too funny about the guy in the suit, lol....

The older I get, all i really want is 3 hots, a cot,a comfortable pair of shoes and a warm place to go to the bathroom...

All i need is these shoes and my bucket list is finished

scarlethue said...

Those are terrible-- I wouldn't go anywhere with him either! haha

ds said...

Those are the strangest things I have ever seen!

Congrats on the POTW mention!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

Jeninacide said...

Please tell me he did not wear those to dinner. OMG. So embarrassing.

lakeviewer said...

Congratulations! Yes, a very positive boost!

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

Hope you will let us know the first time he wears them in public - where? with who? reactions? They sure seem to be catching on.

Congrats on POTW Nancy!

Elizabeth Bradley said...

I don't think so. My husband has really, really, big feet. He's 6'4", and he bought these ugly massive black shoes on a business trip once and I hate those damn shoes and wouldn't you know he loves them? I cannot imagine what he would look like in your husband's shoes! I hope those things are comfortable. lol.

Reya Mellicker said...

Putting on those silly shoes in the morning can't help but create good cheer. Bravo!

Phoebe Miriah Kirby said...

Let your husband know, he has created a husband-in-funky-toe-shoes epidemic. My husband says all he wants for his birthday, are those shoes pictured above. :O

Delwyn said...

Hi Nancy

what are they for?
they look like items from the Universal lots wardrobe...

Happy days

Von said...

Haaaaaaaaa!!!!! They just need hair on them! As far as I know they haven't reached our shores yet, must warn everyone they're probably on their way.

Sylvia said...

It's cosy and nice. Excellent for who has feet problems. Tell me where you bought it. I'll get some for my Mom. :)

Nancy said...

To answer a few questions about these crazy shoes: They're made by VIBRAM, and my husband ordered them online. They're good for any kind of outdoor sports. My daughter ordered a pair (different style) for her trip to Thailand, but she just informed me they're too small and she has to return them. Be sure to follow sizing charts. Most stores can't keep them in stock. We checked locally with REI and they said they can't keep them - they fly out the door! They were originally designed as deck shoes for boats - similar to the barefoot, but with traction and the ability to be a water shoe. My husband intends to run in them - after reading a book on barefoot running being better than running shoes with all of the padding. My daughter wanted them for walking, climbing, swimming, etc. I think I'll pass, I have enough problems being acceptable as it is. Ha

Mental P Mama said...

Congrats on POTW! And those shoes look like the Creature From the Black Lagoon. Remember that one???

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Hysterical!

Midday Escapades said...

What exactly is that shoe thing? LOL.

linda said...

they are hilarious! i am wondering the size of your hubbies feet? hahahhah ;)

this is hysterical! I am wondering how he will like them after he runs in them....

Cloudia said...

Looks formal to me; here in Waikiki we mostly wear flip-flops though we call them "Slippahs" (Slippers).


Toes rule!

Aloha, Friend

Pat said...

Those are down right hysterical looking. They are for real? If I saw a man wearing those with a suit I'd probably wet myself.

I couldn't wear them, myself, 'cause it would drive me crazy to feel that constant separation of my toes. Yuck!

Hilary said...

With a suit? A monkey suit, right? ;)

Kathy's Klothesline said...

Oh, my dear, just be thankful you are married to a forward thinking guy ...... even if it would appear that he is going ape!

Missy said...

They are just as ugly as the first time you posted them. I bet he will get a lot of attention wearing them!

~JarieLyn~ said...

Wow, I've never seen anything like these. I wouldn't want to go out to dinner if my husband was wearing those.

Jo said...

They look like gardening gloves -- for feet.

And, Nancy, you don't need some lame POTW to verify that you have a great blog. :-)

Land of shimp said...

Oh my goodness, those shoes make me want to yell, "Yabba dabba dooooo!"

They're really marvelous in their own way, aren't they? Also, the folks who invented Crocs -- those shoes much decried by the would-be fashion police as being too ugly to live (and of course, I own a pair of pink ones, that I wear frequently, because Nertz to them) -- are rubbing their hands in utter glee! "Take that, Tim Gunn!"

Does he like them?

The Good Cook said...

Please let us know how he likes running in them. The jury is still out as to how suitable and safe they are for running... Remember Zola Budd? Perhaps if Zola had these shoes.....

Nancy said...

Shimp - Yes! He loves them! Geeze

Cera said...

I cant see why you wouldnt want to go to dinner in those they are so "adorable" bahahahaahaahaha
