Buy This, Not That: Reader Question

Dear Spark!,

In Case You Didn’t Get the Memo….

Attention all pre-school mothers, in case you didn’t get the memo, these shoes are the new hotness in the carpool line.

This morning, I saw no less than three pairs of this exact shoe on moms flitting through the halls of my daughter’s pre-school.  And these flats are absolutely, head-turningly, stunning. 

But, you all know me, I simply cannot justify $195 for shoes that will soon have a combination of peanut butter and playground chips all over them.  And who really wants to look like everyone else, right? 

So, how about these?
