Nascar and Fashion?

Well, Sean left again today for three more weeks and he couldn't have picked a more prefect day. It's rainy, cool and kind of depressing. Perfect day for laying in bed and reading or watching TV.

Instead I'm at the USO watching a Paul Walker marathon (Fast and the Furious and Into the Blue) and making chocolate chip cookies.

So, while looking at shoes the other day I stumbled upon something, let's say.... unusual.

There is now a Nascar brand of shoes. Yep, you heard me right. The same cars at 200 mph, raching around a track millions of times is now making shoes. Women's shoes.

Although the shoes aren't terrible they aren't really great either.

Here's a couple of samples for you.





I ask you this, what made Nascar decide to get into women's shoes? I just have to wonder who was the brains behind that one.

Haha! Who knows?!? I bet they think the girls who walk around in nothing but their bikins are the races will want some high heels to go with them. Dumb.

Wow.. and Wow... If the checked flags ones were a little higher they may be cute..
But its OBVIOUSLY a mans idea.
I mean really.

Karie said...

They aren't HANUS... but I wouldn't wear them.

That's really odd.

And you know they won't be worn we jeans, unless they have been cut off into shorts. And the shirts they would wear? I don't want to imagine. The shoes may not be bad, but you can rest assured that any fan crazy enough to wear them won't be pairing them with anything classy.

Seriously the two have nothing in common.

Yay for a Paul Walker marathon!

I think it's for the women that you also see posing by the cars and waving flags. Yes, that has to be it.

That is too funny! I can totally see one of my friends wearing those actually...she and her BF are huge Nascar fans...you know, the type that wear all the paraphernalia that they can get their hands on? Yup, that type. In fact I may go email her on myspace now...=]

That is SO random!! Why in the world would Nascar get into doing women's shoes?! Where the hell did you even run across them?!

mewok said...

hahaha! Oh that's funny. I'd say the brains behind that one is someone from Ricky Bobby's neck of the woods!

Sad thing is, i know a lot of people from where i come from that would totally wear those...

Ok, maybe i would... after a few beers.

Wow, Nascar shoes...? Weird. They're almost cute, you're right, but then you look at them and suddenly have a "wait, no" moment.

Why?!?! I just don't get it!!

Is this Nascar's way to get their male fans to buy their wives nice shoes for putting up w/all those races? I'm not a Nascar fan, but I do kinda like the shoes.

Haha so random!!

This just cracks me up! Now I have to ask how you stumbled onto these?!

lola said...

I'm actually kind of a fan of the brown ones.. should I be worried?

New Girl on Post said...

I kind of liked the brown ones until I noticed the flags on the buckle. Then...not so much.
