Last week I found myself in the Kohl's shoe department. I say 'found' because I can't remember why I was there and, trust me, when I go to Kohl's for footwear there is always a reason. Ferragamo? The back clearance room in Von Mauer? Those trips are pure recreation. When I go to Kohl's for shoes, I go with a purpose. That's just the way I roll.
Anyway, I'm in the Kohl's shoe department and I see them: a certain style of sandal (extra points for alliteration) that had been unleashed on the world last year. They were ridiculous. I thought they would be in and out of fashion in less than a humminbird heartbeat. Yet, here they were for season two and they had multiplied. A full row of different variations was dedicated to this style. That's part one.
Part two happened this past Monday. I was back in Kohl's shoe department due to a shoe emergency that has no bearing on this story. Plus it might make one of my family members mad so my lips are sealed. Anyway, remembering the row of ridiculous sandals I brought my camera, thinking it would be fun to take a picture of it and write a post. Well, guess what. Only one style still remained on the display shelf. Below it looked like this:
From the photo above, I'm not sure if you can appreciate the full glory of this sandal so here's a close up:
What am I not seeing here? Is there some chilly ankle epidemic I'm not aware of? A sudden fancy for cankles? I can't remember the last summer day when I said, "My toes are so hot but my ankles are so cold! Why don't they have sandals for that?"
Maybe I'm just out of touch, but those things look incredibly silly. Am I alone here, or are you with me?
Tell me, what do you think?
