The Open Shoe Pledge for Summer 2006

As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood,
I pledge to follow the Rules when I wear sandals and other
open-toe shoes: This is also a good pledge for those Guy's,
you know the one's that need to pledge.

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not
hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill
over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not
pudge out between the straps.

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh,
intact and chip-free. I will not cheat and just touch up my
big toe.

I will use Foot Fix Pedicure Product / Dry Heel Balm
( and sand down any mounds of skin
before they turn hard and yellow.

I will shave the hairs off my big toe if needed.

I will not wear socks in my sandals or flip flops out in

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend,
coworker, mother or sister tells me the toe seam really
will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.

If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it
back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my
shoe fixed or toss it.

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my
good friend Pat Bailey if my feet need help.( Salon

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for
the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small
enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This is out of concern
for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk
properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate
to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my
toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend /sister /
coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear
sandals. Someone has to tell her that no sandal makes
crappy feet look good.

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that
they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while
walking and I will NOT slide or drag my feet while wearing

I will promise to go see Pat Bailey at Vontrie's Couture
Nails or my local nail salon at least once per season and
have a real pedicure (they are about $30 and worth EVERY

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals
that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty
white sandals.

Don't keep this to yourself - pass it on to others that
need to pledge.
