Crocs: the perfect Yom Kippur shoe.

I daven Yom Kippur Musaf at our congregation, wearing my white yarmulke, kittel, tallit, and...my Crocs.

Oh, yeah. Pants, too. Definitely pants.

OMG!!!! Fred Braun....ah yes, I remember it well....let's see...two stores I frequented......34th between 5th and 6th and also, 8th St in the village. I wore Fred Brauns in high school!! Speaking of the village, do you remember Different Drummer, the jean store across the street from Fred Braun? I bought my Landlubber bellbottom jeans there and had a major crush on a salesperson who looked just like Mick Jagger. My friend and I would sit on the front steps of Different Drummer, praying that the Mick wannabe would come out and talk to us. Great memories!

Elisson, I know how you feel about those 'Fred Braun' shoes, but unfortunately I never got a chance to purchase any, because they seem to have "left the scene" as soon as it was my chance to get at least one pair.
I've also wondered if they will ever be back, and if any of the manufacturers family is still alive, and if they'd want to take up where he left off?
Some of the "best" shoes ever made. Thanks for the memories.

Fred Braun's, I loved those shoes. I had two pair, blue with burgandy rope trim, lace up on the side with what I would describe as a bubble toe and about a 1" sole. The other pair were black, the toes were like gumbies head and flat. I cannot describe the other feature of the shoe. I guess the blue were my favorite. Hah, yes they were.
I have been looking for the manufacturer for about 8 years off and on and cannot find any. It would be wonderful if the style came back out, why not everything else have.

Fred Braun's. I loved my Fred Braun's. considered too expensive by my parents, part of my summer job pay had to be set aside for them. And those shoes boxes were unlike any other. You had to have your Fred Braun box to tote your gym clothes-to school on Monday morning and back on Friday afternoon. They were a High school girls fashion requirement along with poorboy sweaters, A-line skirts, and knee socks, and a peacoat for the winter.

Fred Braun shoes = status in high school and if you used the shoebox to carry your books to school, you were really hip! OMG, they were the most comfortable shoes you could buy in NYC. I had a part-time job so I could buy my Fred Brauns. They were made of subtle leather and it was like walking on air.

Beautiful post. How can we say that feminism has done its work until each of us can walk on the street alone without fear, annoyance, or embarassment?

What I'm Reading

What I'm Cooking

  • Cheap Ceviche
    This is almost a mock ceviche because it's made with junk fish (tilapia) and surimi, the tofu of fish. However, with the right amounts of lime juice, cilantro, onion and hot sauce, even cheap fish makes a fabulous ceviche. I chopped up a 1/2 pound of tilapia and combined it with 2 packages of chunked surimi. Marinate in juice of 5 limes, 1/2 red onion chopped fine, and one head of cilantro chopped fine. Add a healthy squirt of Sriracha sauce and refrigerate.
  • Collard Greens
    My CSA is sending us lots of green love in the form of collard greens. Here's my very delicious veggie-but-smoky recipe. In a large pot add 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup water. Nice pinch of salt, and 3/4 tsp. Spanish smoked Paprika. Add your chopped collards and simmer gently for at least 45 minutes.
  • Tzatziki Sauce
    Just outstanding on everything. Take a container of Greek style yogurt (no-fat, low -fat, doesn't matter). Grate 2-3 thin skinned middle eastern cukes on a box grater and squeeze out all the water. Mince 3 cloves of garlic VERY fine. Stir cucumber and garlic into yogurt, add a splash of olive oil and a grind of black pepper. Dunk in vegetable of your choice, slather on spanakopitas, etc.
  • Polenta
    Apparently the par-boiled polenta I'm using is considered ca-ca by serious cooks. I've found it to be utterly delicious, especially smothered with sauteed portobello mushrooms. I will give plain old yellow cornmeal polenta a try after Thanksgiving.
  • Hangar Steak
    Grilled in a cast iron pan in the oven, on broil. Remarkably tender and so quick. Salt, pepper and smoked paprika for seasoning.
  • Brussels Sprouts + Corn
    A smashing combination -- the bitter tang of the Brussels Sprouts with the sweetness of corn. Saute with olive oil, salt and pepper. C'est tout!
  • Stuffed Cabbage
    My favorite recipe From the NY Times Jewish Cookbook, made with fresh cranberries and canned cranberry sauce. Total yum.
