Living in Florida, I wear sandals a lot more than I did in New England (duh). I bought a pair after moving down here that died this summer, and I really wanted to replace them, but I have a long, picky list of exactly what I wanted:
- Slides, so I can just step into them
- But some arch support/contour to the foot bed, so they don't slide off too easily
- Nothing between the toes (I get blisters way too easily)
- Low heels
- Decent grip to the soles
I think that was it! And I was out a few weeks ago and did some looking around, and not at all to my surprise, couldn't find a thing, in my size, that fit all that. I got to thinking about how what I really wanted was just the same ones I had had, but I wasn't even sure what brand they were, and it occurred to me to search Ye Olde Blogge here and see if I had a helpful picture.
And ta da. Kitten-visiting, kittens attack feet, ccr slides sandals off so kittens can attack sandals, and there's the picture. Blogging for the win again.
I zoomed in on the photo and said (imagine puzzled voice), "Rock & Candy? Is that what that says?" But I searched the google, and indeed, that's a brand that makes sandals. Some more searching around, and I found, not just the brand, not just that style (Caragan Cross Band Slide Sandal), but a pair of that style, brand new, in my size that had JUST been listed on Poshmark. Boom! Sold! I had never ordered from Poshmark before, but I'd heard of it, and considered that vouchsafe enough for my comfort.All The Yarn, and I could not be more pleased. Little victories, y'all. Little victories.
