Lost Youth

I keep buying back pieces of it. Latest acquisition-- the shoes of the endless tropic summers of my childhood: Salt-water sandals. True, Dandelion Wine mentions a different kind of summer shoes, but these will always be it for me. My mom liked them because they stayed on, were indestructible, and didn't deform our feet like flip flops did. I like them because they're simple, but comfortable. I got them in the slightly shimmery champagne color. I'm also considering black or red-- though we always had navy blue when I was growing up. This site has them at a great price. Thoughts?

Could you please post a picture of you wearing these sandals as a child? I don't even care if the sandals show, I just want to see a cute little 4-year old Em gallavanting through the jungle.

I love them. I have 2 pairs that I acquired back in HS and still where them. White and Navy. They sold them in the children's section of Nordstram's shoes and have adults sizes. I'm looking for patent leather red ones. I know they exist.

Hoorah! I still have navy ones from junior high, but I could probably use some new ones.

Props to Mom Cox. Soooo much cuter than Tevas or Chocos.

I grew up in Salt Water sandals too. I have two pairs that I still wear. Love the shimmery champagne color!
