MBT – Skercher’s Shape Up: Are You Kidding Me?
I have seen a lot and lot of ugly shoes in my time. I mean one’s so incredibly ugly that I would rather get ridiculed to my face by 100 people than spend a day in them knowing the thousand of terrible thoughts people are going to have about me after seeing me with them. And not that I really give a crap about what other people think about me, considering that I already wear bright colored shoes and I know that old people, as well as others, are always giving me dirty looks and nasty thoughts. But I literally had not known what the meaning of true ugliness in a shoe was until I came across the one pictured above. I practically almost threw up all over myself when I saw it and immediately felt bad for the first person I would see wearing them, thinking that they were doing everything they could to help support ‘their posture’ and all of the other crap that these shoes promise to provide!! Give me a break!!. Will we, Americans, believe everything we see or hear advertised? It’s a joke!!
They probably do provide lots of comfortable cushion, but all of the claims that they make to fix this and fix that are just preposterous. I guess it’s like the placebo affect. You get enough people believing what they are seeing and the outcome is realized more because of their belief than because of the actual product or what it is they are believing in. Where are the studies?? Where is the person who used to look like the hunch back of Notre Dame and now stands as straight as an iron board?? Where is this person, I want to see him/her?? I have to hand it to the business man/woman behind the idea though. They are geniuses!! Like Croc’s and Tom’s, they managed to create a butt-ass ugly product and turn it into a 100 million dollar business. My hat is definitely tipped off to them. But what makes me sad is the fact that all of these Americans are so easy to just jump on any old band wagon that they see everyone else jumping onto. Good thing there are not more people committing suicide by jumping off cliffs because as easily as the American population loves to follow what everyone else is doing we would have a drastic decline in the members of our society!
