~R.I.P., much-loved garden shoes~
It's time to say farewell to my gardening clogs - a pair of Birkenstocks that I got on sale years and years ago. I've replaced the footbed at least five times over the years - and honestly, the chewed right shoe (recently chewed by the lovely and vivacious Annabelle Lee) didn't bother me so much. However, both shoes now have a crack across the bottom that leaks water and is close to breaking into two parts - and so it was with much sadness that I threw them in the trash today.
I'm one of those loyal shoe people - if I find a pair of shoes that I really like, I'm not against having two pairs of them - or buying the same shoes in succession. I'm not shoe-obsessed, but I suppose I am shoe-loyal. So today I took a look at the Birkenstock website - and checked out the Super Birki clog. I haven't placed an order yet - I probably will sometime soon. I know I should check out the other ones that are now out there (that weren't when I first got these), and maybe I will. But maybe not.
I really liked these gardening clogs.
