I'm disturbed that he was browsing the Bata website. I didn't even know they had a website.

Bata riding sandals, for the discriminating rider who wants to show off their status with metatarsals sticking out of their skin. Do it, you deserve it.

Bata was founded in Zlin,Czech Republic,where I was born.
They were world renowned for quality shoes.
My grandfather worked for them in the 1930's. He's now turning over in his grave.
Who's f'd-up idea was this???????

no fugging way. Of course this is from a woman who puts on crocks to do demo work in the basement. They are my steel-toe crocks. And for the record I only wear them to take the dogs/trash out. Never in public.

I don't ride, I cook!
