And I love them. Wore them once, kept them immaculate. Husband wore them out (despite me asking him not to). Went to a nightclub and now they are filthy, covered in black stains and booze despite best efforts to clean them. Grrrrrrr! Am I being unreasonable to kill him for destroying my new face shoes?

Or fave....

Your husband can fit into your shoes?!

CoffeeTea103 Thu 26-Sep-13 22:50:54

How does he fit in your shoes???shock

AndThatsWhatIThinkOfYou Thu 26-Sep-13 22:52:30

wow sharing shoes with your husband never heard of that one grin grin

Vajazzler Thu 26-Sep-13 22:54:54

My husband has smaller feet than me it's not uncommon. IMO his punishment should be to replace the shoes and buy you a second pair in another colour!

CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Thu 26-Sep-13 22:55:36

They are very nice. I'd be demanding a replacement if I was you!

olgaga Thu 26-Sep-13 22:56:50

Your husband wears lemon shoes on a night out?

Leave the bastard.

tywysogesgymraeg Thu 26-Sep-13 22:57:13

My husband and I have same size feet too. Both size 6 (he has tiny feet!)

My aunt and uncle have the same sized feet too.

He should buy you new ones, he was asked not to wear them and did it anyway.

yellow vans?. they deserved to be ruin imo.

Yellow shoes are going to get dirty, unless you never wear them outside.

He does owe you a new pair though. Perhaps get pink next time?

My husband, me and ds1 all have the same sized feet. I have been eyeing up ds1's green vans (especially since he's no longer allowed to wear them to school).
So LTB. Definitely.

Mawgatron Thu 26-Sep-13 23:08:31

I have big feet! (7/8). I like the replace them and get me an extra pair in another colour idea! And annoyingly, he can pull off lemon yellow shoes. They look slightly less camp than my coral pink ones that he tried to nick...

Idespair Thu 26-Sep-13 23:08:47

Put them through the washing machine. It might rescue them. And give husband a bollocking - what a dick ruining your shoes.

SaucyJack Thu 26-Sep-13 23:10:55

He wore those?! I'd be less concerned for his masculinity if you'd caught him wearing your knickers to be frank.

Mawgatron Thu 26-Sep-13 23:14:43

They have gone through the machine, still stained and the rubber is starting to separate from the canvas now sad

They really are expensive for what they are aren't they? (Ds1's were in a sale). I think I might wear them tomorrow

elcranko Thu 26-Sep-13 23:24:32

Your DH should replace them.

Re sizes, my DH is only half a shoe size bigger than me, it's not all that uncommon!

StuntGirl Thu 26-Sep-13 23:30:11

I'm gobsmacked he

a) borrowed despite being told no
b) wrecked them and
c) hasn't already gone out and replaced them for you.

Is he normally so unthinking?

SnoogyWoo Fri 27-Sep-13 06:45:16

I would be more worried that he has been hanging around gay bars tbh!

Brittabot Fri 27-Sep-13 07:13:05

My DH and I have the same size feet. His habitual wearing of my slippers nearly led to divorce. I feel your pain, he should buy you some new ones.

StuntGirl Fri 27-Sep-13 07:15:15

Colours are colours. There is no inherent sexuality attached to them. Men should be able to wear yellow or pink shoes without being accused of being gay ffs.

Snargaluff Fri 27-Sep-13 07:16:53

So he wore yellow shoes and must therefore be gay? That's a new one.
