How about these for a pair of shoes then?!
I wasn’t purely driven by my fashion-victim gene this time, they were the perfect footwear for wearing at the beach, really, very practical! AND, they actually fit my oddly formed trotters, so I really HAD to buy them.
The confidence I had in wearing these on the beach was sorely tested though. Showing off the waterproof nature of my footwear, I rolled my jeans up to go ankle deep into the sea. This was a wild and savage sea though. I now know the power of a rip-tide, even at two inches deep – to drag the ground from under you and fling you to the very wet ground. I was soaked. And it was so hard trying to stand up again – I must have looked like some lumbering sea mammal stranded on the shore. Worse though. I looked up and saw a TV crew filming! The BBC at that! Filming ‘Seaside Rescue‘. Please GOD I hope I’m not on camera floundering away in my bright orange Crocs. That would be too much.
