Butt-ugly shoes

Posted by wendyn on 12/30/99 at 00:00 (014223)

Steve, I can sympathize with your ugly shoes. I wear my ugly (and I mean UGLY) Birkenstocks with everything including business suits/skirts. I'm tired of the comments that I'm awfully brave to wear sandals in December, and sick of having people ask me if I'm headed to the beach. I really need the extra padding from socks - so I often wear a skirt, nylons, ankle socks and my Birks. Isn't that a pretty picture?

I told my doctor that I would be willing to wear maxi-pads or bannana peels on my feet if someone told me it would help with the pain....

Bottom line? You do what you have to do...but if it helps, it will be well worth it!!!

I just had to say that whenever I see your name posted I read what you have to say. Nine times out of ten it is because your posts are so funny (not to mention that I know you've been through it all!)

Maxi pads and banana peels? I am still laughing.
