Crocs are convenient in a way but be careful on those escalators. I've heard some horror stories there. Easy to wash off tho if one steps in mud or ohhh, doggie-do?
Earthworks kind of the new earth shoe. I saw somewhere that Crocs market has peaked. I remember also wooden clogs were popular in fall and winter months. Now professionals [mostly medical] wear Dansko's but I believe very costly. I believe Dr Scholl wooden sandal era over because most Dr Scholl mainly markets foot care products. But woman should of felt safe wearing them because they could be used as a weapon.

Every high school girl seemed to have a pair. Anyone out their recall or have any memories about them? Wonder why they never tried to re-market them.

You can buy them today, in all colors, right here:

Dr. Scholl's White Leather/Wood Dr. Scholl's Original Shoe

I never liked them...and I don't see how a solid wood sole could possibly be comfortable for anyone.

I wonder how many trees were cut down to manufacture Dr Scholls. One thing for sure a woman always could take the off and use them as weapon to fend off an attacker.
