I Know You All Remember These.

October 2, 2008

I was recently reminded of Dr. Scholl's wood sandals after a visit with my stylish friend Krista. They looked so cute and comfy on her, and so I just had to get myself a pair. These shoes are sort of 70s, but in a good way...didn't your mom wear them?? Also, these were the shoes I was wearing when I met B that day in the lobby.... so I have a soft spot in my heart for them.

  1. Man, I love these. I had a pair of hot pink ones and wore them in the ground. So cute.

  2. I would always smash the edge of my heel on the wood ends. Excruciating, but so hip.

  3. I love Dr. Scholls and went through a big phase of wearing them about five years ago but I haven't seen them for sale lately - where did you find these?

  6. Those Dr. Scholls will never go out of style, but they may come and go in trendiness. I too was wearing them about 5 years ago. And of course, I remember my camp counselors wearing them in the late 70s. I thought those girls were so cool! I wanted to be like them when I grew up.

    I love your blog. Thank you for sharing.

  7. jbhat: Yes, I met B and was wearing these last about 6 years ago. You could get them at Macy's. Now, not so much. But that is what we have the internet for!

  9. These are a staple in my closet. I have a pair of white and find myself reaching for them often. I have a thing about white shoes and struggle to find an acceptable pair--but not these. They are classic and timeless in my book. Love em!

  11. lovely morning: I was hoping they meant you exercise as you wear them, as in your calves get good and buff. I'm going to keep on believing that. Positive thoughts.

  12. i am so very flattered! Dr. scholl's and uggs are always in my closet - through cool times (like when every celeb in Us Mag was wearing uggs about 4 or 5 years ago, and before that in high school), and totally outdated, uncool times.
