Once upon a time I thought that Sketchers were the worst shoes I've ever seen in the world, and just couldnt understand why girls and European men insisted upon wearing them. Then I realised that people like Christina Aguilera are paid millions of pounds to feature in expensive ad campaigns for them.
So I thought 'oh, ok, i suppose advertising can be persuasive and people can get caught up in a moment or whatever, so I can accept that it's ok for people to fall for it all and end up buying a pair of these shitty things'.
But then I saw MBTs.
I laughed so much when I saw them in a shop window near Carnaby Street that when I started to walk into the shop to see how much they were, the Security Guard moved in front of me to block my access. I've still no idea how much they cost but I presume it can't be any more than £20 or something like that. I mean, people look so ridiculous when they wear them. Who would pay money to look like that.
However, Maybe it's because there are 3 Friday 13th's this year, or maybe because the planets were in a certain alignment at some stage, but incredibly, we have now ended up with certifiably, THE worst pair of shoes ever. Sketchers have decided to make their own version of the MBTs. That's right, Sketchers saw a pair of orthopedic shoes and thought - 'What a great idea, they look fantastic! Let's jump on this bandwagon...'
So, if you think you have a shred of dignity about you and wish to surrender it, these are the perfect shoes for you...
