My sandals, let me show them to you:
I got these from Lands' End on a pre-summer sale for $29, and I've been wearing them all! summer! long! I love how shoe-like they are (my previous sandals had soles that were thin pieces of nothing), and how they don't smell bad, and how they don't make embarrassing suctiony sounds against my flat, flat feet when I walk. I love that the footbed is neither slippery-plasticky-smooth nor suedey-hard-to-clean. I don't love the velcro, which is of course starting to curl, but I still love the sandals.
So when some of the colors went on clearance for $14.99 I should have told you immediately, but I hadn't decided yet which ones to buy or how many, and I was worried that you would pounce on them and buy them out from under me, because I am a Sharing Person but not so much a Sacrificing Person. But now I have decided and ordered, and now I am ready to share. I'd bought the pink ones originally, and the green clearance ones (my second choice) weren't available in my size. I bought the Coral Orange and the Gull Gray.
I would not call the orange ones "Coral Orange." I would call them "Tide Bottle Orange" or "Target Clearance Sticker Orange."
They are in fact oranger than I would like, but the pink ones dulled down from a summer of sand and sun and water, so I imagine the orange ones will too.
I super-love the Gull Grey ones: they should be called Gull Grey & Pretty Yellow, because the two colors both contribute strongly to the overall color of the sandal.
If you buy the Brown, which look like they should be called Brown & Target Clearance Sticker Orange, be sure to let me know what you think of them---I NEARLY bought them too but had to draw the line SOMEWHERE.
