Not only did I come across these, um, foot covers quite unexpectantly, but someone I e-know and e-trust as an e-friend actually recommended these as a viable summer shoe option. (I'm sorry, DCGF, I heart you and your blog, but I must draw the line in the ether with Crocs.)
Aside from the gnarliness that is the Ugg, there is no other shoe on Earth that I despise more than these rubberized, garrish, even dangerous monstrosities. To put it another way, I'd rather see a sea of flip-flops than a single Croc. That's right, A SEA OF FLIP-FLOPS! I SAID IT!
So, I feel compelled now, if nothing else, at least to provide a counterpoint to the DCGF's point. And so I thought long and hard this afternoon, "What to recommend?" As my mind tends to do often, it went blank until I checked my Inbox and there it was, courtesy of my friend and fellow Radiohead devotee Tom:
see below. something about a sale at my friend's shoe line. happy shopping.
Well, I'll be damned if I didn't see below, and what I found was not only a brand of shoe that is exquisitely pleasing to the eye, but this foot attire looks ridiculously comfortable, as well. It's from a designer called Devotte, which is beginning to gain more press, as alluded to in the forwarded attachment:
Devotte has made the top shoe to get for Memorial Day weekend on Refinery 29!
For the friends and family of Devotte, we will be offering a special discount..this week for Memorial Day, so make sure to put yourself on the mailing list! Do not forget!
So, I clicked on the link, checked out the goods and found that not only do I covet the featured shoe in Refinery 29, but I am drooling over just about every single shoe on Devotte's site.
Helena in graphite, $330
Leeloo in green; $320
Jazzler in brown; $320
Ahhh, now if only they weren't several hundreds of dollars per pair... UPDATE! HOWEVER, those who buy a pair this week and enter the code "devotted" at checkout will get 25 percent off! That is a serious discount for these. And yes, I will concede that these lovelies aren't as well-priced as the uglies I posted at the top of this post, but my-oh-my are they much more worthy of your dollars and sense (LOL!).
