Vacuum Shoes

Manolo says, as we all know, nothing makes the unpleasant housework more bearable than having to wear ridiculous and ugly shoes while doing it.

    These look as if manufactured from spare parts by Joel on the Satellite of Love during an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000!

    perhaps they squirt the cleaning fluid, then as you dance around, it cleans the floor?

    Can’t they make Rosie the Robot maids and leave the poor shoes alone?!?

    Wise Manolo, have you ever ran an article about comfortable, attractive house shoes? It would make a lovely jumbo post this spring. And a great anti-croc statement.

    So, there’s a built in vacuum, eh? We can all see how loud it is and how much it sucks but is it easy to empty?

    How does it work? You’d think the weight of a person in the shoe would cause it to get jammed up against the carpet and stuff.
    Weird.

    This is what you wear to casual day at the office when your Crocs are just too formal.

    These make me recall that moment in the Pippi Longstocking books (or movies, perhaps) where Pippi and the very un-cool neighbor children clean Pippi’s house by strapping sponges and brooms to their wee feet and sliding all about! Oh yeah, verily, it was fun and yet useful. I am most certain this was precisely the pitch employed by the marvelous designers who developed this most insane concept.
