    The woman is trying to convince me to get a pair. She says they look nice and tons of PNW-types swear by these things. I think they look like they have cancerous AIDS. I tried on a pair and they immediately gave me a palsy. She claims they break in like butter.

    Although originally from Chicago, I have been told I am a PNW type (Spent 4 years in Alaska and 4 in Washington State), and I wouldnt wear them. But thats just me.

    Just buy your man slipper/boots and get it over with!


    Actually, I have a pair and they are quite comfortable and durable. They don't look as dumb once they are broken in (and worn with jeans), but I almost threw up when I saw my first pair.

    I don't think too many in the PNW wear these things, mostly the rednecks and wannabe types (me).

    I have no experience, but the one in that picture is hideous.

    Why not get something that looks good and is comfortable?

    For the right red head, I might wear them. And not much else.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    I own a pair of Georgia boots, but they are real work boots. I can tell you that Georgia boots run a little large.

    I know nothing about those shoes, and I wouldn't be caught dead in them.

    I think the are fabulous and you should buy them. I can't believe the rest of you are not trying to talk him into getting them.

    she's from a smallish town in NW Washington, and swears they are standard issue. we were just in Bend, OR and i kept an eye out for anyone wearing them. i didn't see any walking around, so i asked why that was if "everybody wears them."

    I'm thinking a picture would help us decide if these boots are cool enough. :think:

    Of the red head, not the boots.

    I rock these in the office. Made by Merrell, comfortable as fvck, look good with any casual pants and no goofy strap/stitching/elastic stuff.



    I like the brown but I'm sure the black is ok too.

    i'm not looking to buy any damn boots. i just was looking for agreement that these things look like they have the boot equivalent of down's syndrome.

    I think we can all agree on that. But like a child with down's syndrome, they'll grow on you ;)

    I'm thinking these "romeos" could be a nice comprimise. Original slipper/boot, combined with sleek rock 'n roller styling:

    hahahha,
    I forgot to mention that they can be ordered with addition heel risers. I think it's like $10 for every 1/4"? That can't be said for the georgia boots.

    While not those exactly, there were a lot of folks in the Navy that wore something similar refered to as "engineer boots" that were slip on.
