I am off on holiday abroad in a month and am seriously thinking of buying a pair. I was thinking that if I bought a 'decent' pair I could travel in them then wear them on the beach and to breakfast etc and only have to take one other pair of shoes to wear in the evening.

Am I mad or is there a better alternative?

Don't do it.
It'll all end in tears.......
mine when I cry laughing at you wearing them!

I really do not want to look like a twat sad

DH will kill me if I am useless at the airport due to inapropriate footwear - plus I will have a pushchair and need to chase after a 4 year old in them as well.....

Perhaps if I buy a really decent pair of flip flop things.......

Good luck finding a "decent" pair of Crocs hmm

MargaretMountford Tue 10-Jun-08 12:28:50

seriously, Havaiianas are very good...

I am gong to go against the gran here and say YES GET CROCS! V.comfy and easy to walk around in, your feet wont sweat if you get the holey ones. They are fab honest.

Or a couple of nice pairs of canvas pumps. Primark have some nice ones about £4 a pair. Good for chasing,
protects toes with the buggy,
not twat-wear.

Buy them for your 4 year old instead smile

schneebly Tue 10-Jun-08 12:29:32

those havaiianas look like a £1.99 pair of flip flops shock

MargaretMountford Tue 10-Jun-08 12:30:37

or espadrilles - the flat French ones...or some flat topped Converses- might as well look stylish in your pumps
Crocs are just not very nice

canvas pumps make your feet ming. Go crocs, go crocs <<cackles>>

MargaretMountford Tue 10-Jun-08 12:32:00

they come in a squillion different colours though (Havaiianas) and are good quality rubber..there are some other similar and a bit cheaper Brazilian flipflops which I'll see if I can find

MargaretMountford Tue 10-Jun-08 12:32:30

i got those Chequers, there lovey and comfy arn't they? and less bulky that the caymen ones...am getting another pair this year in either celery or light bluesmile..sooooooooo comfy!

MrsPuddleduck Tue 10-Jun-08 12:35:04

I like the idea of a pair of Converse pumps, thanks.....cheper than Crocs as well smile

Goober Tue 10-Jun-08 12:36:02

Canvas pumps come in different colours
AND ARE PATTERNED TOO.
They will also go in the washing mashine.They are cheep enough to have a pair for every outfit.
Crocs make your feet look huge like clown's feet.

MrsPuddleduck Tue 10-Jun-08 12:36:36

Sorry, meant cheaper.

Chequers - what's wrong with Converse?! I am going to end up with a complex at the airport at this rate!

Chequers is wrong - Converse are a timeless classic
