The Ugly Shoe Train

I know that I may sound a little bitchy when saying this, because they stand for a good cause and all, but I hate Toms Shoes!  They are so hideously ugly and they are EVERYWHERE.

First came the foot shaped running shoes, which made me want to hurl, and now it's the classic canvas Toms shoes that I'm seeing women wear everyday.  What's up with this?  These Toms shoes look like really bad fake versions of Classic Keds -- which I totally endorse, by the way.  At least Keds are classic and they actually have some structure to them.

The only style of Toms shoes that I can stomach are the canvas wedges.  They, I will admit are cute and reasonably priced.

Okay, okay, I know that with every shoe you purchase from Toms a child in need receives a new pair of shoes, which is really a great movement and I stand behind it, but good lord, can't the shoes they sell be any cuter?! 

All right, I'm done, and now I feel terrible.  Maybe I'll jump on the ugly shoe train for a good cause...then again, maybe not.
