are these and these , both arrived yesterday and are v lovely. i have a pair of birkies upstairs but rarely wear them as i think they make my feet look ugly.

does anyone actually think birkies are flattering...?

I love the first pair but I don't do toeposts.

I don't care if my Birkies are flattering

i am a size 2.5 and i wear them cos they are therefore small and dont flap about like flippers

i dont like the first ones

i like the second ones, more girly

next have nice pink sparkly and girly ones

Like the white ones

no I don't do toeposts either marthamoo, they make me feel faintly queasy.
I do like Birkies in principle but was rather talked out of it by the Power of Mumsnet
oh and my friend who asked me if I wanted to look like a sapphic German geography teacher

Nah i think I'll stick to my Birkies. Haven't taken them off for days!!

Next Tue 13-Jun-06 13:09:11

what are "footbed shoes"?

BonyM Tue 13-Jun-06 13:10:13

Birkies are ugly.

The white ones you linked too aren't too bad though.

Birkies are fabulous

They go with everything and don't hurt your feet

No to rip off versions!

like the white ones very much - but am horrified at the 'customers who bought these also bought...' section at the bottom. Bllleeuurrgghhh

can anyone wear scholl or similar wooden shoes without getting aching calves

mine are killing me

nailpolish Tue 13-Jun-06 13:13:16

fullmoon - god you a re right!

what a hideous lineup

NomDePlume Tue 13-Jun-06 13:14:36

I hate wooden shoes. Not natural surely ? Your foot is MEANT to be flexible, how can heavy rigid soled shoes be of benefit ?

nailpolish Tue 13-Jun-06 13:15:29

i cant work it out either ndp

i think they are too big for me

byut they are scholl

Enid Tue 13-Jun-06 13:16:08

scholls are excercise sandals

thjey are meant to excercise your calves like taht

NomDePlume Tue 13-Jun-06 13:16:30

they look gross too, nearly always seen on women with very cracked, dirty feet <bleugh>

NomDePlume Tue 13-Jun-06 13:16:58

piss my pants @ 'exercise sandals'

nailpolish Tue 13-Jun-06 14:44:49

at this rate my calves will be like dame kelly's
