Cuff Sandals!


Considering the fact that I have large feet, I have very limited options when it comes to footwear, of course, unless I am ready to bear the agony of wearing heels ( which I rarely do!)....so I scouted all over Paris looking for something interesting...and found these 'cuff sandals'....in BATA!!

I was secretly happy that Bata, an Indian brand housed some interesting option for women with large-feet like me.... to my utter dismay, I discovered that its a Czech company! :-) They really know how to cater to the locals coz lots of people assume they are an Indian company atleast in India, coz you can find a Bata around every corner and at affordable prices!

Anyway, I own a pair of interesting pair of cuff sandals that are reasonably comfortable and makes people notice! ;-) What do you think? Like it?

I discovered about Bata not being an Indian company in Paris too... they have an outlet at Place de la Republique and I was so excited. My brother was then in Zurich and I was telling him about how an Indian company had opened shop in Paris and he told me!

OH MY GOD!!! HAWTNESS!!! :)
And yes, I discovered Bata's non-Indian roots when I was in Singapore...

As for the foot thing, I so empathise! I do. Not only are my feet big, they're also broad which means all these strappy things are of no use!

But you shoes. LOVE IT! And they're in a colour that will go with pretty much everything! :)

Shruthi,

Babe..thanks, I love it too! he he he...that description would fit perfectly for my feet too...lets form a club and diss all these women with perfect tiny and delicate feet ;-)

Shruthi said...

Yes, lets! I know at least three other people, from my office, who will join in :)

P.S: If you're ever in Singapore, find this shop called Pedal Works, they have shoes for big feet, up to size 43!
And pretty looking stuff too and they will never tell you, I don't have this style in your size

Shruthi,

Wow! I should have known you earlier....I have already been there sometime in 2007, wish i had known....am surprised that its in Singapore, coz all the women there are so petite and fragile-looking!

I completely understand how you feel about shoes.. I have the same problem.. wide feet and useless with heels...
Love your new cuff sandals.. they are very smart..
which shop did you get it from?

Pretty Woman said...

Shruths,

SR said...

Haha.. Such a dodo I am .. :(
I used to think, I am the only one in this world who have wide feet and could not find shoes..
In that excitement.. forgot that the shoes were from Bata..
