Slides

They seem to be everywhere, no wonder! They are “shoes” (nowadays girls’ best friends) and they are also comfortable!!!! These are the divine pair I wish I could find at a reasonable price:

And actually, I have found something similar I really like:

Anyway, going back to why you should have a pair of slides…. Let’s be realistic, summer is about swollen feet, most of the time, so, what is better than a pair of open flats? Now, it doesn’t mean, in my view, one can walk around in those horrible  “swimming” slides, which too seem to be fashionable now… they are really awful and are best kept to the swimming-pool area, if that! The slides I am talking about are a little “Grandad style”, at least my favourites are, but certainly more feminine and, some of them, can be elegant too. By the way, nothing against the Birkenstock slides, I have worn them myself, I do think though they are ok only in particularly casual situations and, I suppose because I have already had them, I am a bit “over” them…

Here are some more styles:

While I was looking through the different sites, I saw a pair for over 1,200 dollars!!!!! Can you believe it?! Really, how can they cost so much?!? Even if I could, I would like to think I would never spend so much, it just seems wrong to squander that kind of money on such a small amount of leather!!
