What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 274: Sandal Season


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

New York has entered Phase 3 (minus restaurants), and that means I can get a long-overdue pedicure! Now that my feet will once again be suitable for public appearances, I’m thinking about sandals. Incessantly, really. Of course, some sandals (and some feet) just shouldn’t be seen.

When choosing embellishments for your sandals, scale is surprisingly important.
Trying to put on those ugly things on must be like an obstacle course for your toes.

Many men do not pay enough attention to foot maintenance. (Not my friends, of course.) However, for those men who take good care of their hooves, these would be great! By Ballsai
I know they’re popular, but I just don’t get the appeal of fur sandals. They just look hot and Muppety to me.
Just perfect! By AnesisLeatherworks.
I have a friend who would love these. I would make fun of her all summer for wearing them.
You remember that weird kid who wore wellies every day? This is her summer look.
Everyone should have at least one good pair of leather flip flops. These are perfect, regardless of gender! By Coisas4u
Look away!

  3. Not much into sandals but ….back in my college days the “thing” was to cut up Bass Weggins (sp) into sandals. My dear friend did this on a new pair and her parents had a fit.

    • How funny! That’s just the kind of shenanigans I would have been up to in school. Instead, we bought Candies sandals and traded one for another of a different color. My mother was apoplectic when I did that. She said “Now, they won’t go with anything.” My response, somewhat predictably, was, “No. Now they go with EVERYTHING.”

  4. Haha! Your comments were so spot on, Donna!!! I wouldn’t wear them, but the Carmen Miranda sandals are awfully cute. Or just awful. I am torn.

  5. I do not have a well-turned ankle and I have the legs of a pit pony – even when I am at my ideal BMI – so I always have to find a sandal that is neither too much or too little to balance out the proportions of my trotters. I do very much like those gold ones and the orange-red pair but they would not suit me. What on earth is going on with that off-white pair with the clip buckle? The foot looks so uncomfortable and that toe looks like it is trying to slouch off. It is such an uncomfortable photo.

  6. I’m not a sandal fan either (my feet just seem to get dirty), but I could kill for those blue t-straps!
