As a kid, I remember these awesome sandals that my mom wore for years. She wore these sandals in the summer, in the winter, day and night.
They held up though, they lasted for years! Besides the obvious
lasting quality, these sandals were sexy. I remember my moms legs
looking like a million bucks, and her feet looking oh so damn adorable!
I didn't know what the sandals were, I was 5!
As time went on though, and I grew older, I still could remember those
sandals, those tan sexy sandals with the cool metal buckle. The sandals
that made my moms legs and feet look hot. As a teenager I wanted a
pair. I figured I would be able to find them on ebay, but every pair I
came across looked very used, and those selling them wanted way too much
money for these retro sexy sandals!
The sandals are of course made by the Dr. Scholl's shoe company, and
by God are they glorious! With a leather strap to hold your foot in, and
a wooden base I figured these gems would never make it back to the
Ah, but alas, retro is back, and even though I am seeing all sorts of
retro remakes being sold again, I never thought that Dr. Scholl's would
re-introduce their original wooden heeled sandals back into the market. I
always thought they were long forgotten, and that I was the only one
who loved my moms old sandals.
They are back though, and they are back with all new hip colors. The
originals my mom wore were the natural tan colored ones, with a nice
wood clunk heel. Yep, they would go clunk, clunk, clunk, whenever she
walked, commanding attention, her shoes spoke as if saying 'I have entered the room ladies, check me out, and move out of my way!'
The new originals come in pink, blue, brown, tan, yellow, white,
green, black, or red. They feature new heel colors as well, but indeed
you can get the original wood heel as well. Other heel colors include
black, or light tan.
The new originals however come with a new hefty price attached to
them. The tan heeled Originals come to a price of $39.00 which is not so
bad. If you want the original wooden heel though it's going to cost you
The originals with the wooden heels come to $73.20! Youch!!! But your feet will thank you, because these bad boys are damn comfortable!
