Not by you or by your significant other, unless you're dating Big Bird: these German-designed flats are actually composed of compressed birdseed, and presumably your feathered friends will drop by to nip at your toes. I don't think I'd wear these while mowing the lawn, and I don't think they'd be particularly useful if your favorite outdoor activity is kicking squirrels in the, um, nuts. (Purely parenthetical note: The working title for the wacked-out Sixties single "I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman," by the pseudonymous Whistling Jack Smith, was "Too Much Birdseed." Obviously some pop Nostradamus anticipated these things.) On the positive side of the ledger, you have to admit, they're not as hideous as Crocs.
