Ruby Red Slippers

What have we here? I see Mickey Mouse Cutouts surrounded by red.
There's that little gator! Now you know don't you?
Carletta has a brand new pair of red Mickey Mouse Crocs!

You may have heard the latest news this past week that the Crocs company is fighting an image problem and the once hot shoe is in declining demand and increasing inventory has forced the company to cut jobs and close production plants. Knock-offs and discounting have also hurt its bottom line. In today's economy it's hard to say if the company can become profitable again.

I only know they are the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. I spent my last year of teaching walking and standing in comfort. Despite the company's woes I know a good deal when I see one and I scarfed these up this weekend for under ten dollars! Actually, I bought three pair of different styles all for less than the retail on these ruby red beauties!

Oh my gosh...CROCS...excellent my friend. They cover too much of my feet to enjoy. I only wear my shoes to work. Other than that barefoot or my slippers...What you would call flip flops...LOL...Excellent RT :)

Crocs are the best!

Felisol said...

The Mickey Mouse Crocs are superb.
I wear my husbands black ones, running out to fetch herbs from the garden, newspaper from our common mailbox.
They also are good on the beach.
Easy to wear and comfy.
Not for city use though.
I'm to old and conventional.

I hate to admit this but I have yet to try any one...you have convinced me that I should. (I thought they were going to be a pair of Lily's shoes!)

Leedra said...

Maybe I need to see if I can find some Crocs at a discount price. I have only worn the off brand of the same style. Don't know if they wear different or not. Maybe I should check it out.

A stylish yet comfortable ruby slipper. You got a good deal here, yet the value is in footware that is comfortable all day. Style without comfort - perish the thought!

And now I can't post what I had in mind to post because you'll think I'm getting all my ideas from you :) HAHA- or maybe I will anyway...;)

Cute crocs.
I love the "pan out" photo setup.
I wonder how the new high heeled crocs will sell.....

ellievellie said...

Long live the Mouse! Very cute - I never tried those - I see them everywhere - may be it is my time to buy them - or wait til next summer - they look very comfortable

Jim said...

Carletta, I like your red Crocks. They are real pretty. That is nice too that they have Mickey cutouts.

Happy RT, I'm at JIM'S LITTLE PHOTO AND POEM PLACE this time becauswe I left Karen and her new baby on the other for a while.

I've always heard Crocs are very comfortable, but I've never worn them. Perhaps I should get a pair, but I don't think I'll go for the ruby red Mickey Mouse version you have. Yours are very stylish, though.

luna miranda said...

love those red Crocs! oh yes, the knock-offs are all over here. friends tell me Crocs are comfy but i've never tried them. i prefer flip-flops.:P

Annie said...

I've never had a pair of crocs, Carletta. Maybe I should discover them before they are gone. They really are kinda cute.

Chic-a-boom, chic-a-boom. :-)

Rita said...

I have a very square foot and have never found a pair to fit me. But, my husband lives in them too. Wish he could find such a deal. I would have him buy every pair for future use.

Lovely red post.

Tanja said...

Such a cute pair of Crocs. I did promise myself that I never buy a pair, but now I can't be without them :D

diane said...

I've never tried them even though everyone says how comfy they are. Yours are super for Ruby Tuesday.

Gattina said...

Nice ruby reds ! The shoes I saw for the first time two or 3 years ago in Italy ! Then they came last year to Belgium, now apparently it's all over the world !

Martha in PA said...

Wow, Disney crocs, under $10.... that is a deal. I loved crocs too for our many many day trips to Disney while living in Orlando, but I must admit I don't wear them as much as I used to. I never cared that some thought they were ugly, as for me they were the most comfy thing for the parks!

Leora said...

Ten dollars is a good price. Enjoy the comfort! I like the red with the blue jean.

Hootin' Anni said...

Red crocs....and even has Mickey cut outs. Super cool.


My Ruby Tuesday is posted...scroll down below my CATS post. Hope to see that you came for a visit today if you found some time.

Happy day to you.

Great Ruby Tuesday photo. Only time will tell if Crocs will stay solvent as a company.

Kerri said...

Love your Ruby Red Slippers! I have never owned a pair of crocs. I didn't realize they were that comfy....I may have to run to the shoe store :)

The Laughing Idiot said...

I have the exact same ones!!!

I wear them everywhere on the weekends - they're great for the garden too.

A most excellent ruby!

Thanks for visiting me :)

amanda said...

Too Funny. I adore the color although I think the Mickey would be a bit much for me but they are very "stylish"

~Just me again~ said...

Great crocs, trust Disney, to make them theirs LOL.

Chuchie Lopez-Wilks said...

I haven't tried thosekind of slippers yet although they are very popular here and actually became a fashion trend. I heard about it being very comfortable to wear. anyway, nice shots for Ruby

Dianne said...

these Crocs are adorable

laura said...

Gotta love the crocs!

srp said...

And where do you get them... I have either a Mortons neuroma or a bone spur in the ball of one of my feet and it is awful to walk.... great shot.

maryt/theteach said...

Carletta, I LOVE Crocs. I wear them all summer. What's the problem with them? I didn't know they were losing customers? The RED ones with the MM shapes are extraordinary! :)

Raven said...

Cool Crocs! I read about their problems and have been meaning to see if I could get a good deal. I live in my Crocs.
