The Groupon Guide to: Shoes vs. Sandals
Still in use today, shoes were invented by the ancient Egyptians as a way to simulate the binding process of mummification for the still living. Now, however, a sleeker foot-covering alternative is gaining in popularity: the sandal. Choose between shoes and sandals with this handy guide:
At the Office
Shoes or Sandals? To display the openness necessary for business excellence, always wear sandals to the office.
Important Exception: Managers and the professional shriekers they employ to motivate them can rush to meetings by wearing rollerblades.
At the Beach
Shoes or Sandals? To avoid tearing your delicate foot bottoms on the sizzling, jagged sand, always wear shoes on the beach.
Important Exception: The salty ocean spray of beaches can be corrosive to some shoes. A sturdier steel-toe rollerblade may be a better choice.
At Your Wedding
Shoes or Sandals? To symbolize the joining together of two different souls, wear one shoe and one sandal. Important Exception: Why not show your enthusiasm for your nuptials by rushing to the altar in a new pair of formal rollerblades?
At the Roller-Hockey Field
Shoes or Sandals? If you're lucky enough to be watching the nonstop action of America's fastest-growing sport (1994–1996), you can wear either.
Important Exception: What are you doing in the stands? Strap on a pair of regulation athletic rollerblades and join the fun! Don't stroll—roll! With rollerblades!
At Duncan's Roller-Zone on Route 10, Your Number One Source for Blades, Wheels, and Everything That Rolls!
Shoes or Sandals? Whatever you come in wearing, you'll leave with a great deal on the raddest thing to happen to feet in centuries—a new or used pair of rollerblades!
Important Exception: Come in this Saturday to get your picture taken with the cast of The Mighty Ducks (minus Emilio Estevez)!
At Home with a Crying Spouse
Shoes or Sandals? That's not important right now.
Important Exception: Apologize for wearing rollerblades to your wedding. You were just trying to drum up some business for the rollerblade store. If you get asked to stay in a motel tonight, it's probably faster to rollerblade there than to walk.
