Are these sandals ugly?

I don't think they're that bad at all, personally. But I definitely prefer the black.

And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance
But you are not alone in this"

On first glance I was like "uh, YEA!" but I looked a little longer and now I think they're kind of cute!
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
Ooh, I like them a lot more in black. I like them quite a bit, actually.

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?"

maybe it's in the stitching... or in that little design on the insoles..

hmmm.

Or as my 4 year-old would say, hideous?


My feet have "issues" and it's really tough to find sandals. The choices for people like me are very limited to orthopedic shoes, it seems.

I found these Tevas in two colors and ordered them. They don't kill my feet and this color limits me in terms of what I can wear but if you saw these on someone's feet, would your first thought be, "fugly?"

Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
CK is the one!!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous

The red ones she posted are cuter than Chacos IMO. I have Chacos and while comfortable, I would say the red sandals are less sporty and would go with everyday wear easier.

The black ones look better imo.

On a side note Teva is a company that makes generic medication here in the UK, so I was thinking 'when did they start making shoes?' thinking they'd started making generic prescription orthopedic shoes.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I've tried Dansko, Sofft, Born and Chacos through Zappos. I had real problems with Chacos and Dansko. The high arch supports in their shoes really dig into my flat arches.
I have flat feet, too. And they're wide. So all I ever wear is sneakers. I don't even have any comfortable shoes for special events.

Shoes look much different on than off. I'd get them in tan or black and you can wear them with a lot of different clothes.

I have a pair of Sofft, which aren't very soft or comfortable.

Born...eh...OK.

I haven't tried Chacos (never heard of them).

I am also in the market for a new pair of shoes, but they have to be sort of dressy for work.

I prefer the black ones and I do not think they are fugly at all. This comes from someone who has had five previous toe surgeries; so, emphasis is on comfort for me. I almost always buy open toed shoes for summer or mules for winter and pointy shoes are a big no-no for me so I understand your shoe envy!

2b/3a.
Reading through this, I have to ask if everyone here is wearing cute shoes at all times. It's a serious question--what do you wear on weekends when you're running errands, for example. I wear cute shoes at my job, but the ones I wear when I ride the metro on the way to work (when I'm doing a lot of walking) are not the same as the ones I wear once I'm at work.

To me, the ones medussa posted look comfortable, and not necessarily cute, but I can't see how they're ugly. They look like a decent compromise between function and form.
