So I finally got a pair of comfy shoes....


The last time I got a pair of shoes was Christmas before last, you see I'm the girl that finds something that she likes and then wears it until it's completely worn out. Comfort is a big thing in my book. But the problem was that those other shoes were just not comfortable! And if they aren't comfy after this long you may as well give it up! I had heard that these Sanuks were one of the most comfy shoes out there so I hunted them down. They sell them at high-end sporting goods stores where you can find North Face and KAVU brands. Well it seems that my foot is so huge (8 1/2 or 9) that only the plain ones were left, and my feet have been hurting so bad that I decided I wasn't leaving that store without a pair. So here is my problem....I need to pretty these things up a bit. I'm thinking a bo-ho theme or something like that. (You know I'm a closet hippie right?) Maybe even a cute fabric patch or embroidery?? I even thought about just doodling on them with my set of sharpies, but I couldn't decide what to doodle. So what do you think? Have you seen any cool ideas out there? Link me up, throw me ideas, whatever you've got, I wanna hear! These things need some personality!

Just so you don't think that I'm completely mad, here are some hand painted Toms. Get the idea? But I want the bohemian theme...

Welcome to the wonderful world of Sanuks! I've been wearing them for about 3 years. The longer you wear them, the better they are.

I have never heard of them, but I can think of fun things to do with them.

What about embroidery? Ok, it may be hard to get a needle through them, but that wouldn't stop me.
Or rickrack and some cool beaded ribbon? Could be really cute!
