I Got Dem Barefoot Parkin’ Lot Blues

Friends, I am concerned. Not because that teflon-chested hunk of man candy Taylor Kitsch who despite being recently cast against type as the Object of My Unmentionable Dreamlust (replacing –and I kid you not– a pair of green Pucci pumps) has been back in my humble town for weeks filming Friday Night Lights and has still failed to propose, no, I am concerned because in the past week I have seen three (THREE!) well-dressed big girls walking across a gas station parking lot BAREFOOT.

What is happening here? Does no one keep a spare pair of inexpensive comfy flats in their car for just this very occassion? What if your car broke down and you had to walk a mile or two to the nearest gas station? Could you do it in the shoes you’re wearing today?

I am scandalized!

Plumcake needs a liedown. While I’m recovering my delicate sensibilities, check out the sturdy and not entirely visually offensive lug-soled, Avenue Ballet Flat. They’re incredibly inexpensive, have good traction, excellent padding and will be a godsend to anyone whose poor tootsies just cannot handle one more step in a pair of pretty but painful day shoes.

A Necessary Evil

    Friday Night Lights might be the best television show on network tv right now. Too bad it’s unlikely that they’ll last another season. I’m SO jealous that they’re filming in your town.

    those shoes are “da bomb”. I had the original AVX shoes and as soon as I saw the ballet flats I knew I had to have them. Not only are they comfy walking shoes, the wraparound heel treatment makes them THE BEST shoes for driving. Heel-and-toe like Andretti in those babies.

    Is it mental to think that you shouldn’t have to wear painful shoes in the first place?

    Plumcake, we think alike. Just yesterday, before I’d even read this post, I wore a pair of gorgeous shoes that turned quite painful towards the end of the day. Fortunately, I’d had the perspicacity to throw a pair of ballet flats into my bag in the morning, just in case, and I wore them for the long trek from the office to the parking garage after work. Huzzah!
