Addendum to the Ugly Shoes

For those of you who are regular readers (no, I can't believe I wrote that either), you may recall that I was having a bit of an ugly shoe dilemma. At first I thought they were comfy and great. Then I was convinced by my son they were ugly. After that, I was sitting in a hair dressing shop waiting for my son to get his hair cut and a lady who was many years older than me stood up from her chair to pay and leave when I noticed she had on the ugly shoes. So then I realized they were not only ugly, but also preferred by an older crowd. (Unless she was a fierce example of mutton dressed as lamb) (with her freshly curled coif).

Here's another shot of my comfy ugly skechers shoes.


I took my ugly shoes with me on our trip to England. I did wear them a couple of times. They were very comfy for waiting around airports. When we were in a little town (honestly, I can't even remember which town, it is now all a bit of a blur... oh god, maybe it's the shoes...) I spotted this window display. I could not resist. I asked husband to take this picture and I sent it to my son.


"That's what you get for calling my shoes ugly!  You get a great big ugly shoe!"

  2. I vote "not ugly" I would like to get a pair in the pink in the photo (yeah probably that size would fit my sailboat feet).

  3. This is so funny Jenn! This reminded me that my sister was the first to recommend GoWalks! I looked at them and said...NO! Not my style! Until...I needed a comfort shoe and after one walking excursion...I was sold! I love them!

    1. They are comfy, however, not a ton of support if you need that.

  4. I see you have not reached the stage of life where you look the shoe abuser directly in the eye and say, "Your point is?" You may need to repeat those three words several times, to get to the point: they're your shoes and your comfort.

  5. Hahaha! I've got ugly shoes too. Comfy, but ugly. And, if you don't believe me, ask one of my daughters. LOL I had one pair that were particularly comfy and I wore them until one of my daughters said they looked like something my elderly aunt would wear. Out they went. Vanity, much?

  6. HAHAHA! So funny. Well, I must be getting older because when I saw the photo of your shoes in the original post, the first thing I thought was "They look so comfortable". I just LOVE a comfy pair of shoes these days.

  7. Holy Big Shoe! And pink ((shudder)) to boot. (No pun intended.) I am not one to talk about stylish shoes. If you saw my current pair of gardening shoes, you wouldn't believe it. My family merely shakes their heads rather than comment on them anymore. Visitors politely turn their heads and don't comment.

    I hope your son appreciated the message from mom. lol
    Stylish shoes are so far in my past, I've nearly forgotten what they look like. :)
