are \link{,mid=-1,oby=,hos=0,srs=-1,txtSearch=,cmbPriceStart=-1,cmbPriceEnd=-1,page=2,brc=,\these} and \link{,mid=-1,oby=,hos=0,srs=-1,txtSearch=,cmbPriceStart=-1,cmbPriceEnd=-1,page=1,brc=,\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...?

dotn like footbed shoes full stop

marthamoo · 13/06/2006 13:06

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

I don't care if my Birkies are flattering Grin

nailpolish · 13/06/2006 13:06

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

harpsichordcarrier · 13/06/2006 13:08

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

Medulla · 13/06/2006 13:08

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

Next · 13/06/2006 13:09

toe posts are ok!!

harpsichordcarrier · 13/06/2006 13:09

Greensleeves · 13/06/2006 13:09

what are "footbed shoes"?

BonyM · 13/06/2006 13:10

Birkies are ugly.

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

oliveoil · 13/06/2006 13:10

Birkies are fabulous

They go with everything and don't hurt your feet

No to rip off versions!

fullmoonfiend · 13/06/2006 13:10

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

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

mine are killing me

nailpolish · 13/06/2006 13:13

fullmoon - god you a re right!

what a hideous lineup

NomDePlume · 13/06/2006 13:14

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

nailpolish · 13/06/2006 13:15

i cant work it out either ndp

i think they are too big for me

byut they are scholl

Enid · 13/06/2006 13:16

scholls are excercise sandals

thjey are meant to excercise your calves like taht

NomDePlume · 13/06/2006 13:16

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

NomDePlume · 13/06/2006 13:16

piss my pants @ 'exercise sandals'

nailpolish · 13/06/2006 14:44

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

CountessDracula · 13/06/2006 14:47
