Yes, that’s my own term: “Commuter Flip Flops”. (Should I copyright this?)
Seriously, it’s hot outside. I love my kicky heels, but I’m can only wear them so long before my feet
swell hurt. Sometimes I have to run into the grocery store before work to get food for school parties The Teen tells me about right after I start the car.
Sometimes after work, I find myself walking for what seems like acres through The Big Gaudy Mall, usually because The Teen announces she needs a particular item of clothing for an event she’s known about for months – but only entered my consciousness fifteen minutes before she needs it. Sometimes, oh, the horror, I have to grocery shop for that night’s dinner right after work.
I also like to save wear and tear on my good shoes (read, the Vogs), so I carry them in a bag to work and put them on when I get to my office. The walkways around the historic house where I work are lovely, but those cobblestones and bricks are hell on heels.
I stumbled across these flip flops in Target after The Costume Technician’s graduation with her master’s degree. We had hiked all over a large college campus, and still had more events to attend. My po’ dogs hurt. Almost in tears, I begged The Absent Minded Professor to let me
run limp into Target for a pair of flip flops.
Only I am too much of a style snob to wear rubber flip flops with my wedding dress. But not too much of a style snob to wear these flip flops with my wedding dress:

Since then, I’ve worn them every day for the commute to and from work, and trotted countless miles through grocery stores, drug stores, hospitals, hotels, and [actual] dog walks, still dressed for the office, but showing off my pedicure and giving my feet a rest in these silver flip flops that seem to go with everything.
Yep, I have commuter flip flops. And I contend they go with everything. Do any of you have shoes just for your commute?
