To market to market to buy a fake-y croc-ky

Finally…I have succumbed to it. I have bought a pair of cheesy-looking fake crocs for Ashley. We went to the market on Sunday and while looking around the stalls, I saw these shoes which have Ashley’s size. I have been looking for this brand because it did not have the word As*di right smack in the middle. Yes, eventhough they are fake, they have to look real 😀 It costs RM9.00. I did haggle with the fella but he kept saying it’s the lowest price, other stalls are selling RM10.00, etc. I guess he could tell that I really want to buy it even if he doesn’t reduce the price :) After checking the shoes inside out, I quickly paid him because Ashley was starting to throw the other shoes he has on display and hubby was sweating like crazy.

Alright, I confess that I have actually bought a pair of original Crocs for Ashley in January. Yes, this kiasu mommy bought her shoes eventhough she didn’t know how to walk then. It was the smallest size and yet it is still too big for Ashley’s feet. I think I need to wait another year before it will fit her. Have been seeing children walking around in these colourful shoes that I cannot wait anymore.

As soon as we got home, we put on the shoes for Ashley and she loves it! She didn’t want to take them off when she took her nap too :) We went for a walk today and she would point her shoes to everyone she meets. What a show-off huh?

Well, may go to the market again this Sunday to check out the other colours (rubbing hands).

  3. a HK friend got one for Aidan when we were back in Ipoh. Aidan loved wearing it, but the black buttons on the side gave him very bad blisters. So, be careful, and guess what I did with it?? Ask W.Peng!

  4. Mika’s mummy – Let me know what size Mika wears. Just measure the length of his feet. The sizes of these fakes are not the same as the originals :)

    Laundryamah & Julian – Hehehe…you either like it or you don’t.

    Annie q – Thanks for the warning. I find that Ashley is a bit clumsy when she wears them. Hmmm..maybe better not get another one.
