when a pick up artist goes up to a woman and compliments her shoes, she might reply with a snide comment such as “Thanks, but why are you looking at my shoes? The PUA can choose to interpret this comment in a variety of ways.

It's leather. Also, usually your answers will be "comfort" and "durability".

I have to say I don't understand it either. For 550 you can buy a leather couch that will be comfy and durable for a hell of a lot longer than a pair of shoes...

I wear Rainbow sandals p. much every day it's warmer than 70 degrees. They straight fuck your feet up until they break in, but they last forever. I think my current pair has lasted through two years and one bored pitbull's jaws.

Also they absorb your skin's oil and sweat and get a really obvious outline of where your feet go after awhile. People think its either really cool or really gross but ehhhhh

These are my sandals. Dr. Scholl's studio series. They are wicked comfortable (and wicked easy to wear). Like everyone always said "Birkenstocks are so comfortable" and I got some and was like "EH." Then I got these and daaaaaaaaamn. It's like walking on a cloud.

if you put those shoes on a leather duster and a fedora will form themselves around your body unbidden

your penis will steal a miniature racecar and elope with a sparrow just so it no longer has to be seen with you

do not wear those shoes

girls who want to look like an anime:

These are pretty stupid, but still manage to be super fun. If you wear these you will have the appreciation of a fat metrosexual on the internet.

I am buying these fucking sandals this summer, and you don't even know what to do about it:



These aren't your (waves hands around limply) brown leather deck sandals that you wear on the deck or to the, I don't know, crafts flea market, they are sandals that you use to climb on things and walk on terrain

FUCK

The fact that you all think they're ugly is what gives them - and therefore ME - more power (also reviews say they have excellent arch support and are comfortable)
