I have ugly feet

I’m not looking for sympathy or for anyone to tell me I don’t because I have now accepted this fact of life. They are big, size 7  (or an 8 if there’s no 7’s left in the Zara sale) the toes are far from elegant, though they may fare useful on the golf course if someone has forgotten their clubs and the skin requires more sanding than I can be bothered with to keep them remotely smooth. Can you imagine how horrific summer sunshine is for one with ugly trotters? Let me tell you. It is horribly horrific.

One thing I’m sure of is that I cannot be the only person in the world who feels this way. Pretty sandals make me run for the hills, flip flops make me feel physically sick so I’ve hunted high and low for the perfect summer shoe for us sandal shy foot haters.

And, drum roll please, I found it. Hurrahhhhhhh

It’s called “The Slider”

This magical summer staple makes large feet look smaller, especially if you buy in a half size bigger, hides half the toe and allows the air to circulate and I love them. They are perfect for beach, perfect for work, perfect with dresses, trousers, jeans and basically everything, anytime and did I say I love them?

Here are a few of my faves

Oh ye of imperfect hoofs, trot online and buy some of these immediately. I promise you will not regret it. For those of you who have beautiful feet I wish you happy summer days in your pretty sandals and for those of you who don’t have any hang ups no matter what your feet look like, I SALUTE YOU

Love and Hugs as always
