Friday Shoe Haiku: The Returned One

Darn you, too big toe!
These shoes would have been perfect
Were you not so fat.

Shoe n' Tell: So, I have this supersized big toe. Really. When I was a kid, I spent an entire afternoon stepping off the ledge of a public pool over and over again because my dad told me that with wide big toes like mine, I could walk on water.

Turns out I really can't.

These Miista "Ripley" mesh booties had been sitting in my Urban Outfitters cart for weeks when a sale and free shipping forced my hand. They look like the kind of edgy kicks Alexander Wang would design, don't they?

Alas, the sole wasn't as padded as the product detail professed it to be and my damn big toe was squeezed into that leather strap like a size 12 butt trying to sneak into size 8 jeans. So, I sent 'em back. They do look really, really cool, though.

They do look Wang-ish. Wish they had fit.
