pugly


Those around me unanimously dislike these shoes.
I have mixed feelings.
Ugly, comfortable, durable, inexpensive (£2) 
and somehow charming (to me).

Classic!

ExactingL - not so certain about classic, but so far they are good for dog walking and running errands…they may or may not make the cut. Dr. Martens are a long way from my ordinary footwear (converse/ballet slippers).

Comfortable and durable are pretty weighty qualities. Beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder and perhaps in the sole of the wearer. In my experience, inexpensive is not normally a good thing in shoes, in fact it's usually really bad news, but to my mind inexpensive AND comfortable AND durable just knock the stuffing out of ugly!

Shelley - ha, the matrix of good shoes - price/comfort/durability!

Pao - yep!

LOVE your shoes! They make me nostalgic for the traditional styles kids used to wear. I used to have a similar pair in a light beige in the early 90's.

SilkP - they really do look like children's shoes don't they? I don't know that I love them. They would look good on a 19 year old model, but a middle aged greying woman they look orthopaedic.
