You all know this blog is based on the fact that I’m poor and, therefore, creative with my money. But sometimes, it’s just worth skipping Goodwill and going straight to the new stuff. This is one such instance.
I work at a health center where I’m on my feet for up to 8 hours a day. However, I also have to dress business casual. This means ballet flats or something like it and ballet flats suck! They’re terrible for your feet, your posture, and they just plain hurt. So I began the hunt for a pair of plats that were comfy, cheap, and last a very long time. I found them!
Believe it or not, these are Crocs! They’re comfortable, lightweight, and they conform to my foot the more I wear them. I’ve always shunned Crocs because they’re not the most attractive shoe but now I get it. I love them. I’m usually a size 9.5 women’s or 41 Euro. Crocs only sell round number sizes. I ordered a 9 and a 10 from DSW online, then returned the 10 because the 9 fit perfectly! And, get this, they’re only $35. Heck YES.
I’ve been wearing them for a week now and, while there’s a little bit of a breaking in period, they’re the most comfortable ballet flats I’ve ever worn. And I get at least one compliment on them per day.

Hope you’re all having happy days! Smile, they’re contagious 🙂
