    Ladies, it's that time of year once again!!! I think y'all need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat the following....

    The Open Toed Shoe Pledge


    As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:

    • I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. The sides and tops of my feet will not bulge out between the straps like bread rising in a pan.
    • I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.
    • I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.
    • I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.
    • I will shave the hairs off my big toe.
    • I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, co-worker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.
    • If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.
    • I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.
    • I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes! This is out of concern for my safety and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with meas I fall and break my ankle.
    • I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.
    • I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.
    • I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.
    • I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once a month and have a real pedicure (they are about $35 and worth EVERY penny).
    • I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear...nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

    Especially since they are free if you ask someone with a foot fetish to take you.

    You don't have to date him. Just let him worship at the alter of your feet. For that privelage he could bring you to the salon every once in a while, right?(Unless this was more than a fling.)

    What if I promised to follow every rule except getting a professional pedicure? I can't stand it when someone else touches my feet. I don't wear socks after March unless there's snow on the ground so I always make sure my feet are smooth, toenails polished, trimmed, and hair is shaved. If I don't, i'll have hobbit feet.

    I'll take you up on that offer Wyldgusechaz - I'll have the manolo blahnik metallic jeweled sandal in a uk 3, european 36.

    Why if I go away for a few weeks do people make such interesting offers?

    Great post nj.

    NJQT, you'll be happy to know my feet are smooth with no callouses, rough edges, toenails trimmed, painted brick red, and wiggling inside a fine pair of Kenneth Cole sandals. I love spring. :biggrin1:

    I love spring too! I don't wear any other shoes except sandals. I don't normally polish my toes, but I DO use a pumice stone on my feet, plus foot cream... I have pretty feet! I accept the pledge.

    I wear flip flops. They're awesome. My feet are not ugly, as far as ugly man feet go anyway.

    What if your open toed shoes are just a beloved worn-out pair of tennis shoes?
