Re: I broke my own rule and ordered velcro strap shoes!

My adversion to velcro has to do with the fact the straps are usually thick and sort of clunky looking.  I prefer a thinnier strap with a buckle.  If I cannot buckle the back strap myself, my husband helps me out.

 

Velcro gathers a lot of stuff.

I have bee thinking about them to wear with jeans and you talked me in to ordering. They look comfortable and stable to me. I ordered the khaki.

I have always detested shoes with velcro.  As a general rule, if a shoe had a velcro strap of any kind, it was a deal breaker for me.  A couple weeks ago I was watching AMStyle and Leah was showing a pair of Skechers wedge sandals that looked similar to a pair of Clarks wedge sandals I loved but thought were too expensive. 

 

I had reservations about the velcro but ordered them anyhow.  They came Friday and I love them.  I still wish they didn't have the veclro but the shoes are stinking adorable IMO and they seem like they will be super soft and comfortable, although I've not worn them around.

 

My DH saw them and told me the velcro should have been the least of my concerns.  He thinks the shoes are ugly.  I did ask his honest opinion and I laughed when he told me.  My SIL shook her head when she saw them too.  LOL  I ordered them in the natural shade.

Okay ....   Maybe I'm missing something here but ..... just what is your problem with velcro that you have made up a "rule" about it?    

 

I'd be curious what you other "rules" are, lol.

I"ve never had any of my Earth or Sofft shoes with velcro gather " a lot of stuff".

 

Thick and clunky looking shoes are thick and clunky with or without velcro.  All of my shoes with velcro (and I own 4 or 5 pairs) are super cute and not clunky looking.

Re: I broke my own rule and ordered velcro strap shoes!

The velcro part doesn't bother me but my single experience with Clark's is that the tread wears down so quickly! I stopped wearing them when I stepped off a curb and ended up on my rear end!

Sure it was wet but when I looked at the bottom of the shoes they were as smooth as a baby's bottom....

Was this a fluke occurance? I've been hesitant to buy them ever since...
