Are my shoes "nasty?"

Postby universitylad » Fri Jun 29, 2007 11:11 am

I purchased these shoes about ten years ago while working a summer job at a country club. I didn't wear them all that often and they must have looked pretty new because many other pro-shop and bagroom staff kept asking if I had gotten new shoes. I had heard female colleauges talking about dragging their shoes through a sandbox to get rid of the "new" look, so I took mine out to one of the bunkers to make them look a little less new. People still kept commenting on my "new" white shoes, though.

Now ten years later, my brother has commented on how "nasty" my shoes looked! They are a little worn in, but I'm not sure I'd call them nasty. Would you? They are washable and I do run them through my dishwasher a few times a summer.

They're supposed to be white. They're not anymore. They're nasty. Move on.

You put your shoes in the DISHWASHER!? Ever hear of a washing machine?
Leet me guess, you also dry your socks in the oven and make grilled cheese with an iron?

I'm impressed that you could make a pair of shoes last that long. If I like 'em they are done within six months tops...

Those look like a Top siders knock-off, but I wouldn't call them "nasty" by any stretch-in fact they appear to be just getting good-by my admittedly low, low standards!

Your shoes are fine. Throw them in the washer every now and then and you're good to go.

I can understand your concern, but I wouldn't worry about it.

Your shoes are no longer "Nurse Nancy" white, but they are white enough.

Yeah, but on the bright side, I know a graphics guy who can Photoshop those suckers to a brilliant bleachy white!

Please don't tell me you're suggesting you iron socks. Because ... you know ... that would be only slightly less insane than broiling them.

On a related note, are skid marks nasty?

Or are they sexy?

Are you the same guy who posted pictures last year of the milk cartons in your refrigerator?

This one? http://www.thedailypage.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14021&highlight=

I have to admit I've been better about milk these days. I tend to use more powered milk and force myself to drink milk rather than other thinks if my half gallon of fresh milk is expiring.

No, I am suggesting this person seems to be a little mixed up about uses for household appliances.
