It's all about the Image!

Isn't this great? Thanks to the Dutch we have a range of every psycho to soccer mom wearing these ridiculous Swiss cheese rubber clogs, you know the foam shoes that resemble the clogs Dutch and fifth graders wear cause for a period of a semester they think its cool, you know the clog that is the cross-bred with an Ikea cheese grater. Take the people in the picture above modeling this catastrophe of a sandal, they look like they are in a cult waiting for a comet to pass them by: "I'm ready, I got my pink clogs, Master Zorg!" Sure we all thought that MC Hammer pants were cool, and comfortable lots of room, baggy...they lasted what all three days...The worst part is when 'they' decide like a clown on a bad 'meth' trip and use various colors available, Punks and skaters wear black, Soccer mom wear yellow, Jerks wear blue, and people that need/are going to get beat up wear purple, etc. I usually try not to comment on bad fashion, since we have ALL fallen to some bad choices in our time, but come on think about it, are those pink clogs really you, or are you stuck in a bad 80's music video and are going to be kicking yourself, when your kids and grand kids look at the pictures and ask was grandpa in the circus?

Your fashion sense astounds me - You should start a fashion column on your blog and comment on the late coming trends of Hepburn.
"Paul Morgun's Fashion Corner"...

Gil, thanks for the reminder i linked "ALl fallen to some bad choices in our time" to that reminder... :) still think clogs are worse.

I see your point...but...if you're going to nag on a fashion trend, at least get pictures of people displaying it that aren't gorgeous; I mean, those women look fantastic in their swiss cheese shoes. It even makes me crave cheese. So there you have it...images are powerful.

Hey Sarah, well thats abit of my point that this bad fashion has no boundries, everyone seems to be falling for it, and those models to me look idiotic... :)and yes we all want swiss cheese :)

I really don't see what is wrong with them.... Have you ever tried on a pair? They are actually quite comfortable. Simmer down Pavel.... You are sounding like an old Russian farmer....... you commie-nazi.......

What would you rather have? Low-rider jeans and clevage buldging midrif shirts or Gator shoes? They arn't that bad monkey.....

LOVE YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!

Just to let you know I putting you on NOTICE pal. for making despairaging remarks about the exquisite period of time in musical history known as the 80's...

Awesome Dale!

Great take on those holey shoes. They're merely a very bad trend that I hope doesn't last into next summer no matter how comfortable they may be!!! I believe we may have to endure a winter of ugly clogs until people realize how impractical and hideous these things are.

if i come out as anonomys (sp?)i will be ashamed becuase i NATASHA WIBERG do have a beef about these clogs..
and LOL @ ikea cheese grater, that was parfait..
anyways, my beef was that its a fad at all..like all fads, everyone wears them making them uncool... i admit i wanted a pair, but this was a while back when i was looking for a slide because i'm too lazy to bend over to do up my sandals and i thought, these great garden shoes would be great in the yard (and anyone who knows mw knows i dont care if i'm going into the yard or to superstore (is super) i wear the same thing..like most moms i'm guessing) so i thought about it but never bought because i figured it was a phase i was going thru..now i cant buy them or it looks like i am a croc worshipper..that my beef..i am unable to make this free choice anymore.. it sucks
well that was the depths of my mind

ahhah thanks natasha

I just have to add one more thing...anyone else notice the big movie-star-coverhalfyourfaceinbrownglass-sunglasses? I'm guessing they're a seventies rehash, and that's all well and good; but when people wear them, they put on a "hey, look at me, I might be someone famous in hiding" sort of look, and it makes me want to trip them (shocking, I know). In Argentina where we go every 3 months to renew our visas; all the snowbunnies and boarders don these optical atrocities along with a visage of snobbish indifference. Alright...now that I got that out in the open....ah, I feel better...If you don't know what glasses I'm talking about, wait a few years for the fashion to reach SK, I know it takes a while to get there...har har har

Paul Morgun said...

yeah, w have that issue with those too, my youth wear those every where

My brother and I have a theory: Crocs are for people with ugly feet. What fungus are they trying to hide? Cause really, ointments are available. Ah yes,anyone remember Ugg Boots? Crocs will soon pass. But for now, Say 'No' to Crocs with socks.

Paul Morgun said...

I hear that...thanks LIz
