Rhetorical question: Why in the name of God are all the shoes so ugly this spring!? Actual AskMe question: Please help me find a couple of pairs of sandals online or in Toronto for a reasonable price.
I’ve been trying to shop for some spring clothes, and have found the clothes are awful this year. No problem; I can make my own clothes. However, I need to buy summer shoes – I am not a cobbler and cannot make them. And oh God, the summer shoes this year. They are all some weird, ugly hybrid of booties and sandals.
I want a pair of a) basic yet nice brown leather thong-style flip flops (something like these
) and b) a pair of brown leather medium-heel sandals with an ankle strap and one or two straps over the toes (something like this
, only in brown and with a slightly higher heel). I need arch support in both pairs. I scoured the entire Eaton Centre this afternoon, and I was able to find only one pair in each style that were nothing really special but that would do… for $140, plus tax, a pair. This is much more than I wanted to pay, especially for the flip flops.
So, Metafilter, I turn to you. Please find me some shoes online, or in Toronto, to love.
