Show Off Shoes
So, for you knitty folks, I've found the perfect shoe for showing off your lovingly hand-knitted socks, the waterproof see-through boot. Must have maximum size 10 child's feet though, sorry grownups need not apply :( Might just have to get some for my brand-new niece (and learn to knit too).
I was looking for some new muck shoes to wear in the garden on the advice of Dr. Leda Horticulture the hilarious rosarian columnist from Regan Nursery. She even mentions Manolo the shoe blogger in her recent column.
I've been wearing the sturdy, plastic/rubber Birkenstock look-a-like's for 5 years, and they are deadly slick on the bottom. Like if I mowed the lawn I'd been in danger of losing a toe or something. So I need some new treads. I don't like wearing the garden clogs (just fill up with mud, and are tooo hot in the California sun), or old tennies (too many stickers and burrs in the yard), so it looks like the Muck super sandals are it, easy on the feet, easy to get off when wet, easy to rinse off and keep my feet cool. Just have to find some IRL (in real life).
