I've said it before but it appears I need to say it again.
DO NOT WEAR THESE SHOES IN PUBLIC.I repeat...DO NOT WEAR THESE SHOES IN PUBLIC.
These are great shoes. Sure. Who am I to say they're not great shoes? But please only wear them when you're gardening. That means mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, planting trees etc etc.
Do NOT wear them to the supermarket.
Do NOT wear them with a dress.
Do NOT wear them out for dinner.
I don't care how comfortable they are or how you're just running out for a quick something...Just don't wear them any time... unless you are gardening.
Lifeguards may also wear them... but ONLY when working.
