this is a cost saving measure that shoe comps use to get around paying taxes. they pay less tax on shoe that are labeled as slippers.
use to be only kids shoes. now it fuckin everywhere. I got some dope duckboots from sperry. https://www.sperry.com/en/cold-bay-chukka/47096M.html?dwvar_47096M_color=STS22693&icid=search_suggested_products&q=black%20cold
now I gotta figure out how to get it off without ruining the sole.

I tried one on when they arrived. didn't even look because its a rain boot.
once my foot hit the floor, it immediately slid forward. this some bull fr.
13419896, Terrible. You’d think that for the tax benefit to work|

that they’d need to include “slippers” or at least the word “felt” somewhere in the description where the item is sold. But nope.
13419912, that would be nice. |

I'm glad I was sitting when I tried it on.
13419888, it's hard to see on the photos. which is why I also missed it. |

but if you look at the waves on the sole, they are slightly different shades of black.
if you look at the other colors, its more pronounced.
13419934, that is asinine|
