Clark's, they are shoes. Shoes that my mom, sister and I love. They are so comfortable, have cute styles and sometimes can be on sale. The thing is when you buy a pair they last a long time. For instance, take these browns sandals. I have had them through 6 summers & when I wore them they felt like slippers. When they started to rip at the beginning of the summer I took them to the shoe maker. I am guessing that I really just wore these puppies out. I am going to miss these shoes but thinking it is time they find a new home - the trash.
