Tuesday Shoesday: RIP Sensible Shoe

Looking for a timely Tuesday Shoesday post, I turned to a requirement for our cooking class: "[w]ear casual clothing and comfortable, CLOSED-TOE SHOES, and please no high heels."

I found a couple of kitchen shoes that satisfy our requirement while not being sensible shoes - you know, the ones that in movies squeak as you walk? But I also found that traditional british sensible shoes are on the decline.

"Women’s sensible shoes may well be leaving their final footprints
on the history and landscape of Britain.
" - Ed Watson, Debenhams spokesperson
Over 90 percent of the British women’s shoe market is now dominated by fashion statement shoes,
figures reveal.

Now with sensible Mary Janes who can blame women?

As I'm actually in the market for some comfortable shoes that I can wear when commuting as well as in the kitchen, a pair or two of these clogs might be headed soon for my closet.
