Am I the ONLY one left who used to call these shoes thongs - before we were wearing them as underwear (no wonder thongs are so uncomfortable). These are not leather, but so, so, so cheap that you must buy them anyway. You must buy them and claim they will be for knocking around, because they are not acceptable in the workplace. Then you must wear them to work and change into other shoes that are more acceptable in the workplace. Then you must wear them to work and intend to change into shoes that are more acceptabel in the workplace. Then you must wear them to work. Then you must bristle when people complain that thongs are not acceptable in the workplace.
The come in my favorite color, rock'n'roll black, but I have to admit that the fushia is pretty damn pretty. Plus, if you listen to Stacy and Clinton (who apparently disapprove of most of what I wear, especially, but not limited to, my orange t-shirt with a picture of a gorilla on a scooter) a pop of color in your shoes is a good thing.
