Agreed.

I like em. They look like a cross b/w Birkies and Clarks. I've never heard of Teva. I checked out their website and daaayum, the prices.

I don't have foot problems but I'm on my feet a lot with work (we're allowed to wear sandals) so I need a comfy sandal. I've never gone wrong with Clarks. Birkies were like walking on cardboard to me, so very overrated. Those look like they've got some support like Clarks though. If they work for you, they're worth it, so get several pairs if you've got the green comin in. $100 for shoes would about put me under so I envy ya, gal.

I've seen much worse. They actually have more style/personality than a lot of the comfy leather walking sandals you see out there (Nana shoes, hippy-dippy shoes, camping-in-the-woods shoes, call em' what you will -- I see ugly sandals everywhere, on everyone).

I think you should go for it. If you wear them with confidence and pizazz, they'll be just fine! And you gotta take care of your feet. Your 4-year-old will deal.

They are worth it. Teva, Chaco, Reef all have sporty-type sandals with good support and they last FOREVER.

I'd like them better with a solid brown or black sole, but overall I think they're cute.

I would prefer them in brown, but I think they look nice, actually. But, for some reason the textured part where you put your foot is kind of distracting, but since your foot will be on that when you wear, I don't think it matters. And the cork-looking sole looks a little strange. But, my final verdict is yes, I do like them. (But, you may want to disregard my advice, since I'm not exactly fashionable. Just ask anyone who knows me personally, lol!)

You have my deepest sympathies Medussa. I have genetically screwed up feet, and I am also relegated to *sensible* shoes for the rest of my life (thanks Mom ). My suggestion was going to be Dansko, but you've already tried those. I'm mostly a Birkenstock wearer these days.

I actually like them myself. I guess I'm in the minority lol.

They really aren't that bad to me. As I get older, I realize "cutsie" isn't really as important as "can I wear it all day?"

ITA with journotraveler re: pedicure. Wear red toenail polish, and the Teva's will look less dowdy.

Thanks so much for the opinions.

I wore them all day around the house, with a pair of capris and a red top. I like them, but the red just doesn't go with everything. I need a pair of sandals that will match most of my wardrobe, since I will be wearing them a lot. Here they are in black. I suspect most of you will still vote ugly. If I can't find anything better, I might just go with these.

I'm SO sorry your feet make you unable to wear heels and frivolous sandals. I don't know what the hell I would do. I'd die if I couldn't wear strappy heels...or cute flat sandals.

LOVE the pair pictured above. LOVE.

Same here. Plus, I love red. I'd always have something to match them with.

I don't think they're bad at all. They're not high fashion, but they look comfortable and are much more stylish than a lot of the comfortable sandals I've seen.

I don't really like them, but if they are comfortable that is what is most important. The black color does look better than the red, based on pictures alone.

I think Dansko, Clarks and Aerosoles make really comfortable, durable sandals that look cute.

I like the black better than the red - they don't look as little girlish.
