Sometimes I have to ask myself what people are thinking.
This is one of those times.

Are these not socks with soles attached?

$150.00 a pair and me saving up for a new low angle plane!

ARRRRRGH!

I think the real cost is in the buttonss. It’s not cheap changing the word UGLY to UGG.

A guy could always store his planes in them.

Trifern, the buttons are apparently “Wood”

Must be Canadian. They look too thick for an American Version. Except for where Odie lives.

Sounds like a good deal to me, not. I wouldn’t give 30.00 for a pair much less 150

They look like they’d keep your feet toasty warm but would collect sawdust like crazy! LOL!

They are currently advertised on Cnet webware weekly.
I suppose that’s a good place to sell them given the tinkerbells programming today. <g>

Karson, we have shoes like that up her but they are called Muk Luks.
Odie, you’re such an eye for fashion.

Mot you should get a pair for those fancy planes of yours!
