Form and Function Should Really Try to Meet Somewhere in the Middle

I dunno, guys. I kinda feel like if you ever find yourself at a point in your crafting career where you think that duct-tape and cardboard are all that's needed to make yourself a fine-looking pair of sandals, you seriously need to put down your favorite huffing glue and back away slowly.

Example A:
From the listing: "My daughter has a wide chubby foot which makes it hard to shop for shoes, these here are easy to slip on & off plus she loves them. Just trace foot onto cardboard, cut out plus foam, then tape up."

That is all.


  1. "These here" are gonna get her daughter's ass kicked if she wears them to school. And God help her if she shows up at the pool in these beauties.

  2. FUGLY, Lazy and ew! Who wants duct tape rubbing on their feet - ouch!

  3. And next Christmas, family members open their gifts....

  4. Hey, if they ever have to fix their kid's cardboard clothing, they can just take a bit of tape off the shoe! Brilliant and versatile...

  5. Oh dear god.

    Duct tape is growing in popularity for some sick reason... I just found these on etsy LOL.

    Yeah I know, I'm supposed to email suggestions, but I'm way too lazy for that.

  6. This is just going to be so bad for the development of her feet! Not to mention her self-esteem.

  7. Wow, it's not often you see fat kid sandals in a patent cardboard. Studding!

  8. wjw. what's worse, that the Mom's creating an obese child, or proudly creating the child's shoes from trash and tape? this is child abuse, from every angle.
