They didn't have flip-flops so I didn't buy anything and the clerk ask me not to photograph the shoes. ????wonder why. They are too outrageous not to. Teri

They look like great shoes for the rainy season. Look how high above the water you would be. You could clean your windows without a ladder, or trim your hedge. Think of all the possibilites. You may want to rethink this and pick up a pair. O.K. so your right. They do kinda send a message, dont they. Anyway, hope your well.

explanation

he fears that you are trying to start your own shoe factory and since their designs are so increibly beautiful(??????) .......well, you of course want to steal them!

that's right, the evil Capitalist Gringa...trying to kill the small shoe store......THAT SELLS THE UGLIESTS SHOES I HAVE EVER SEEN!

the 2nd picture is the 'best'=worst

I feel like buying them all.....then burn then in a viking burial ceremony......

You'd think that free publicity would be a good thing. Perhaps they're embarassed about their wares?

I checked out a couple of shoe stores while there, scoping out some hiking boots. The fit & quality were so-so - is that the case for shoes like that?

I would have told the clerk to call Guinness Book of World Records.. He just might have the Largest Collection of CFM shoes under one roof . I am especially partial to the Nurse Goodbody shoes.... Mondays in a clinic might be a better day.. Speaking of days,, Have a great one yourself,,thanks for the smiles.

I just love posting dicey stuff (like those shoes with dice for the heels) because I get a response out of you guys (and girls). I like hearing from you.
I still can't find what "CFM shoes" are Barry.
My mission: get a photo of someone actually wearing these shoes. SOMEONE is buying them!
There's a whole other life in Jaco that goes on without me in the night and the wee hours of the morning. I'll check it out sometime and let you know.

Wolfie, I have stock (Crox) with the ugliest shoes I have every seen AND that stock took a huge nose dive. Bought at $51 before Christmas, trading now at around $5 now. That's painful!!

wolfie_cr said...

oh no! :(, I hope its not a lot but hey , you went against your gut feeling......when I saw those things...I couldnt believe ANYONE would wear them in public

its a good thing that I have my little $ committed to a big purchase coming up soon........I would be very tempted to buy one of those condos in Jaco. I was there with my buddies a month ago and well, its changed a lot and its still very convenient to us living in San Jose

Oh man, how did I miss those shoes!?!?! You know with 5 kids you have to keep things fun! (jk)

TICA MACHA said...

Barry, Oh, I HAVE been here a long time. I had forgotten all about the CFM expression. Yep, that's the look they're goin' after!

Shawna - I just don't know how you do it with five kids in crazy Jaco. My hat's off to you girl.

Earlier this year I had my mom visiting, and we know the guy who rents out part of that space (It is two units) to the "shoe store". We were talking to him and walking and he wanted to check on the new renters. We followed him right in continuing the conversation, and suddenly realized where we were. The other half of that store is a sex shop with tons of costumes. We had a good giggle and saw lots of variety. I saw a "pool-boy/cabana-boy" and a bellhop costume for the dudes. So funny.

Thanks for the heads up on the boy-toy costumes...
JUST KIDDING FOLKS!!
Long ago, I promised my readers to check out the Tantra Sex Shop in the mall. I did but was left speechless. Doubt I could have taken photos there either and I KNOW I couldn't post them here!
Gotta keep it clean...
