Bad Shoe Day
For the second day in a row, I have stepped in dog poo on the way to work. It must have been camouflaged because I sure as heck did not see it and I avoid all dew covered grass on my way to the car. To make things worse, today I was wearing brand new fresh out of the box shoes. Yuck. I managed to get most of it off in the parking lot at work but still, total bummer. Except for the poo remnants that were clinging to to small ridges on the underside of my shoes, I really enjoyed wearing them. They were comfy, squishy, and looked pretty damn good. I had a few errands to run after work and on the drive to the store, I was thinking that the right shoe felt a little loose. Halfway through my shopping, I started to think that the right shoe felt a lot loose. As in "about to go flying off my foot" loose. I looked down and the tiny strap holding it on had snapped in half. In half!!!!!! Crappy shoes!!!! I had to cut my errands short and do a weird Frankenstein like shuffle to the register and out to my car. No way was I doing a Britney Spears and going barefoot in public. The shoes were not returnable because I ordered them online and no longer had the box.I did go online to rate the shoes and I basically said they were crap. Surprisingly someone else had a similar experience. I will definitely not be buying a pair of Franco Sarto shoes again because Franco Sarto shoes are not worth the money and did I mention that Franco Sarto shoes suck? Because they do. Even without the poo.
