Are you a woman who plays golf and want to shave a few strokes off your score? You may be surprised but a good pair of discount women’s golf shoes could really help your golf game. Golf shoes are specifically designed to grip the grass better than regular shoes and will keep you from slipping when hitting the golf ball. Golf is a game of balance and a good pair of discount golf shoes will keep you balanced and on the course.
Start your search for a good pair of discount price golf shoes at your local sporting good store. Many sporting good stores now carry shoes for all sports and carry affordable brands of products. You can always wait for a sale to get a great pair of shoes at a very good price.
If you are not sure what to look for in a pair of golf shoes, head over to your local golf specialty store. Talk to the salesperson at your gold specialty store and ask for their knowledge about discount golf shoes. Be careful to ask the salesperson about many different models of shoes, sometimes the salesperson may only suggest a high priced golf shoe because they will earn a higher commission.
Specialty golf stores can be very expensive, so if the shoes at your local golf specialty store our out of your budget, take the information you gleaned from the golf specialty store and head over to your local outlet or discount mall. Most large outlet malls now have a sporting good store and many will have a golf store. These outlet stores carry newer models of shoes and equipment purchased as overstock or slightly manufactured incorrectly. Make sure you inspect everything you plan on purchasing in detail but chances all you find the same models available at your local golf specialty store for less money.
Calendar timing is essential to purchasing a great pair of golf shoes at a discount. Purchasing golf shoes in the middle of winter, when it is too cold to actually play golf, and you will not be paying an increased premium to cover an increased demand. During the winter many sporting goods and specialty sport stores need to make up for lost revenue by having big sales. You will probably not be wearing your new shoes for a while but purchasing them in the winter will save you money
Take some time and do your research before purchasing a pair of discount women’s golf shoes. These shoes are designed to only be worn when playing golf so they will last you a long time. Purchase the best quality shoes you can find at the best discount price and you will be able to improve your golf game.
This is one in a series of occasional reports about South Florida gardens.
The view from Sy Baskin’s balcony is a 270-degree panorama sweeping north to west. From here you can see buildings on Key Biscayne and Virginia Key with the ocean beyond. Move your eyes and there’s the graceful bridge on Rickenbacker Causeway and the orange roof of Vizcaya on Biscayne Bay.
“Some days I can even see the blue line of the Gulf Stream moving along the coast,” says Baskin who for the past 18 years has been tending a garden on this balcony
Set on the 26th floor of the Bristol Tower Condominium in Miami, his 900-square-foot balcony garden features about 100 plants, of which 55 are fruit trees.
Loquats, three to four varieties of guavas, Meyer lemons, avocados, ruby red grapefruits, pomelos, Key limes, Dancy tangerines and mangoes are just some of his crops.
“When you garden out here, you have to be ready to fight the elements and deal with disappointment. The elements can wreak havoc,” says Baskin who will turn 91 in April. He constantly has to battle wind, heavy rains and the searing sunlight.
This garden is Baskin’s retreat when he’s not out saltwater fly fishing or playing golf. He visibly relaxes when he walks through the sliding glass door from the kitchen into the fresh air.
Today he finds a ripe red pomegranate dangling like a Christmas ornament from a branch, a splash of color among the dark green leaves. Elsewhere, tiny green citrus fruits are tinged with orange signaling that these kumquats will soon be ripe.
Baskin spends his time checking for new growth and overseeing the health of his balcony crops. “He’s in and out all day,” says Beverly Baskin, his wife of 62 years. In fact, the first thing he does when he gets up in the morning is to head for the balcony.
“Before he even says ‘Hi, how are you?’ or checks to see that I’m still breathing, he goes out there,” she says with an indulgent smile.
Baskin’s garden includes a pitaya or a dragon fruit plant that grows large red fruit with green spikes. Then there’s an abiu from the Amazon region of South America that develops a yellow fruit. He also grows an Arabica coffee tree, a Barbados cherry and an acai or miracle fruit.
If there are any bright red berries on the acai tree, he’ll let you chew one as he tells you to “swish it around in your mouth.” Then he’ll give you a wedge of tart lime to bite into. The miracle fruit makes the lime or just about any food taste sweeter.
He moves among the pots as he picks leaves off the bay rum and allspice trees. Then he crumples the leaves in his hand and lifts them to his nose so he can inhale their exotic aromas. He also shows off his Michelia tree from Central America. When it’s dressed in star-shaped ivory flowers, you can enjoy their aroma. The essence of these blooms is used to make Joy perfume, he says.
He also has a dwarf Cavendish banana, a cinnamon tree and a vanilla orchid, which he says will never produce beans because Florida isn’t home to the specific bees necessary to pollinate it.
His favorite crop is the fruit of the Murcott tangerine. “The flavor is a nice balance of acid and Brix. It’s tart and juicy; not insipid,” he says.
12 January 2012 Last updated at 19:10 ET Share this page By Adrian Goldberg Radio 4, The Report Bank of Scotland has written-off around £2m of debt because of a failed leasing deal
Taxpayer-funded Bank of Scotland has written-off more than £2m ($3m) after being caught up in a failed leasing deal, a BBC investigation has found.
The bank was owed money for equipment leases sold to British golf clubs by Elumina, a business run by a previously disqualified company director.
Many former Elumina customers are also thousands of pounds out of pocket.
Bank of Scotland insists it is not at fault but critics demand improved regulation in the selling of leases.
Elumina persuaded more than 100 golf clubs across the UK and Ireland to install sat-nav style GPS screens into the their motorised golf buggies.
The screens measured the distance to the next hole, identified hazards and allowed golfers to order food and drink while they were on the course.
Elumina's sales reps told customers that the rental cost of the GPS units would be offset by on-screen advertising sold through another company, GP Ads Ltd.
Andrew Smith from the Whitehill Golf Club in Stevenage, Hertfordshire thought it seemed like a good deal.
Over 100 golf clubs signed-up for equipment lease deals which have left them out of pocket
"It was £2,600 ($4,000) per month and we were getting in £2,300 (£3,520) advertising per month. So the difference was £300," he told BBC Radio 4's The Report.
"Over 20 buggies I thought it was good value as it was only costing us £15 per buggy, per month."
But within a few months the advertising payments from GP Ads became less frequent and eventually dried up altogether.
That left customers, such as Whitehill Gold Club, owing thousands of pounds on their leases but with no means of recouping the cost.
"We were basically paying the monthly lease of £2,600 and not getting anything back in return, so suddenly you multiply that by how many months left on the lease.
"We've lost about £35,000 ($53,700) and an awful lot of time and energy as well, which can't be costed," Mr Smith said.
More than 100 other golf clubs, who signed up between April 2005 and December 2007, have been similarly affected.
When GP Ads Ltd went into liquidation in 2008, it left the golf clubs exposed to millions of pounds worth of liabilities for the leases, without any income stream to offset the expense.
Regulation ‘too weak’
Solicitor Patrick Battersby, who represents 15 of the affected clubs, estimates that his clients are more than £1m ($1.5m) out of pocket.
He argues that regulation of the leasing industry is too weak and leaves disgruntled customers with little means of redress.
"It strikes me as unsatisfactory that when people who enter into leasing arrangements, such as occurred here, did not have any regulator that they could turn to, to ask for assistance," says Mr Battersby.
"We as solicitors, for example, have a very good regulator who, if you have any complaints about a solicitor, you can go to and get immediate redress.
"Perhaps that's something that the leasing industry should be looking at."
Other observers of the Elumina deal are critical of Shire Leasing, one of the industry's biggest brokers, who helped finance the importation of the US made golf buggy screens.
They question whether it performed adequate due diligence on Elumina's owner Kevin Clarke.
Mr Clarke, who has declined to comment on the case, was disqualified as a company director for seven years in 2002 after publishing inaccurate and distorted accounts.
In a statement to BBC Radio 4's The Report, Shire Leasing said:
"Kevin Clarke was known to Shire from a previous successful trading relationship.
Shire did carry out due diligence as well as attending joint meetings with Kevin Clarke… and the Bank of Scotland."
Shire had sold-on the Elumina leases onto the part-nationalised Bank of Scotland – part of the Lloyds-TSB group.
Problem ‘very widespread’
Bank of Scotland confirmed to the BBC that they have now written off £2m ($3m) in toxic assets accrued as a result of the Elumina deal.
"The vast majority of these agreements were assigned to us by Shire Leasing plc.
"Bank of Scotland Equipment Finance was not in any way connected to advertising deals with individual golf clubs," a spokesman for the Bank of Scotland said.
This case follows recent revelations, not linked to Elumina, that British schools could be exposed to millions of pounds of liabilities as a result of a computer leasing scam.
The BBC's 5 live Investigates programme has also revealed that many small UK businesses have lost thousands of pounds as a result of fraudulent leasing of telephone equipment.
Business journalist and leasing industry expert Brendan Malkin warns that problems in the leasing industry are "very widespread" and have got worse as a result of the recession.
"It is shocking that the UK high street banks have been caught out in these leasing cases, and as a result have had to write-off millions of pounds of taxpayers' money," says Mr Malkin.
Justin Rose of the trade organisation The Finance and Leasing Association admitted he was concerned about the BBC's findings, but insisted that there is already sufficient regulation of the leasing industry.
"The number of problems relative to the total size of the use of asset finance is remarkably small," he said.

Lord and master: The fifth earl and Highclere. His children did not enjoy the warmth and love of the family in TV’s Downton Abbey
The eight-year-old heir to the earldom knew what was coming and was terrified.
Summoned to his father’s study, he glanced out of a window and saw the head gardener tying together a bundle of birch twigs.
The high-born lad was in for a thrashing. What had he done this time?
As young Henry George Alfred Marius Victor Francis Herbert, only son of the fifth Earl of Carnarvon, was about to be painfully reminded, growing up in the first years of the 20th century at Highclere Castle — the magnificent country house in Berkshire which is both the set and the model for Downton Abbey — was no bed of roses.
The Downton that millions of viewers tuned in to on Christmas Day (and were left gasping for the next series to begin in September) is, for all the dramatic events unfolding there, a generally benign place. Voices are rarely raised, let alone fists.
The Earl of Grantham is a pussycat, his wife a sweetie and his daughters — the odd peccadillo and dead Turkish lover notwithstanding — well brought-up gels of refinement but with minds of their own.
For Lady Mary, Lady Edith and Lady Sybil, childhood was undoubtedly a cheerful, pampered and loving experience.
Highclere, by contrast, was a brutal place to grow up, and the real earl in residence at that time was a bully and a secret pornographer.
All he required of his two children was to be seen occasionally and heard never at all.
His son Henry — known as Porchey because of his title Lord Porchester — admitted to living in fear of his forbidding, dissolute and disapproving father.
Throughout their childhood, he and his sister Evelyn were confined to their quarters on the top floor of the three-storey, 200-room castle, with a nanny, governess and nursemaids in charge of them.
Visits from mother and father were rare and, as Porchey would later recount, awful and awkward.
Highclere, by contrast to Downton Abbey, was a brutal place to grow up, and the real earl in residence at that time was a bully and a secret pornographer
‘My sister and I would spring to our feet and stand to attention,’ he said.
‘I never knew what to say.’
The earl would splutter a few words — ‘How are you all, then?’ — as if talking to his groom rather than his offspring, before retreating.
As the door closed behind him, the children breathed a huge sigh of relief.
The sixth earl’s memoirs, No Regrets, published in the 1970s, are an eye-opener for Downton fans.
They reveal how the Highclere butler, a mutton-chop whiskered fellow by the name of Streatfield, put on a posh voice but always got his aitches in a tangle, putting them in where they weren’t supposed to be and dropping them where they were.
‘Heverything is hall right in the ‘ouse, m’Lord,’ he would announce.
Carson, Downton’s eloquent and ever-correct maitre d’, would have had a fit of apoplexy at such an assault on the English language but Streatfield’s strangulated vowels and laboured syntax were probably more typical of the era’s social distinctions.
But it is in the true nature of aristocratic family life that the Carnarvon account differs drastically from Downton. Even the festive season was lacking in love and warmth.
There was no sign of Mum and Dad in the nursery on Christmas Eve. Porchey remembered presents being delivered by servants to be put in the children’s stockings.
‘They were obviously chosen with little care or regard for our personal tastes,’ he commented bitterly years later in his memoirs.
On Christmas Day, it would be after lunch before they were summoned downstairs in their best bibs and tuckers to be shown off to the earl’s guests, a ‘treat’ which ended after 15 minutes when they were dismissed by their already bored father and sent off for a walk in the grounds.
‘Perhaps we’ll see you tomorrow,’ was his parting shot before getting back to his card game, though the promise of that ‘perhaps’ was rarely fulfilled.
Brought up in such an emotional wasteland, it’s no wonder being sent off to boarding school at the age of eight was a relief for the boy. And it was on his return home at the end of his second term that the dreaded summons to his father’s presence came.
No maternal instinct: Lady Almina and child. She was an heiress, the daughter of a Rothschild, who was wooed into the family to save it from financial ruin
His report was terrible: ‘Writing slovenly, mathematics appalling, idles his time away.’
A home tutor had been employed but with no improvement, and now came the reckoning.
Young Porchey was ordered to undress and bend over. His hands were tied to a brass bedstead. His father had three birch rods, each tied with a blue ribbon, to choose from and swished them through the air before selecting the one he liked the most.
Then, after a sermon about how Porchey had damn-well better improve his ways and stop slacking, he set to.
The victim recalled: ‘Standing back, he performed a little on-the-spot jig, as if tautening his muscles, then suddenly brought down the birch as hard as he could on my bare bum. After six strokes, he threw down the birch and left the room.’
The immediate effect on the lad was physical — for the next few days he couldn’t sit and had to sleep face down. The psychological scars cut much deeper.
‘From that day onwards, I planned to kill my father,’ he said.
Armed with a small knife he stalked the earl in the Highclere grounds and, concealed in bushes and watching his father practising his golf shots alone, he came close to doing the deed.
In the end, his nerve failed, but the enmity he bore his father was a blight on his life.
Which was sad because there was much about the fifth earl for a red-blooded and blue-blooded son to admire. Fearless and adventurous, he travelled the world and was a first-class shot.
He sailed yachts and bred racehorses. He drove fast cars in the infancy of motoring, scaring ordinary folk with his Mr Toad antics and surviving countless crashes.
To cap all that, as an enthusiastic amateur archaeologist, he became world famous for financing and then joining the expedition that uncovered the fabulous tomb of the boy king Tutankhamun in Egypt.
On the other hand, there was a seamy side to him. His secret sideline was taking photographs of scantily clad girls, and his sexuality was always a matter of some mystery.
There have been suggestions the children were actually sired by his best friend, an Indian prince — which might explain his indifference to them.
However, his wife, the diminutive and highly-sexed Almina, was no better a mother than he was a father.
She was — like Cora in Downton — an heiress, the daughter of a Rothschild, who was wooed into the family to save it from financial ruin.
Downton, with its generally wholesome family relationships – so far anyway – seems tame by comparison with the real-life characters who inhabited the house
Ten years younger than her husband, she traded her colossal fortune for the title of Countess of Carnarvon. She paid off his vast gambling debts and spent a fortune on Highclere.
But, unlike the sweet and loving Cora, she seems to have been lacking in maternal instinct in what never progressed beyond a marriage of convenience.
She had her good points. During World War I, she turned Highclere into a hospital for wounded soldiers — just like Downton — running it at her own expense. On her orders, each wounded officer had the luxury of his own room, with down pillows and linen sheets. She made beds and dressed wounds.
She was generous in other ways too, with a free-and-easy — some would say promiscuous — attitude to the many men in her life, including, it was said, one of the Highclere gardeners.
But all that love and compassion seemed to desert her when it came to her son.
She didn’t care much for Porchey, and even less after his behaviour at a Buckingham Palace garden party, where the excited 10-year-old ran without looking across the lawn and into the rotund stomach of Edward VII, knocking the king to the ground.
His Majesty was kindness itself, as was his young granddaughter, Princess Mary, who offered the distraught Porchey a raspberry ice cream to calm him down.
The boy then watched in paralysed horror as, in his second royal faux pas in as many minutes, the ice cream slipped from the plate and slithered down the front of her white satin dress.
His social-climbing and self-important mother was incandescent.
Lord Porchester, who was a notorious womaniser, with Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson at Ascot in 1985. He lived to 89
‘She grasped my arm, nearly dislocating my shoulder, and dragged me to our carriage,’ he said.
‘I was thrust inside and throughout the journey to our London home she never for a second left off kicking me in the shins with her pointed shoes.
Back at home, she ordered him to be locked in the attic with nothing but bread and milk for 48 hours. Not even the intervention of the Palace on Porchey’s behalf could save him from his mother’s wrath.
The king, not at all upset by his tumble but concerned for the boy, sent round a present of a sack of toys but she confiscated the lot.
The rifts forged in childhood never healed. When the earl was dying in a Cairo hotel in 1923 — succumbing to blood poisoning after an insect bite, which popular imagination said was his punishment for disturbing King Tut’s resting place — the 25-year-old Porchey, now an Army officer, rushed from India, where he was stationed, to be at his side.
It was a poignant last moment.
‘I stood looking down at him, filled with sadness and remorse for all those wasted years when we had known so little of each other.
‘I could count on one hand the number of occasions upon which we had enjoyed real affection and companionship, and now he was beyond my reach.’
Porchey inherited the title, becoming the sixth earl of Carnarvon. He also got Highclere, but his father’s personal wealth — which might have paid the death duties — went to Almina, who kept it for herself.
The high days of Highclere were over. Gainsboroughs were sold to meet the debts. Household and estate staff were cut from hundreds to just 23.
To raise money, the new earl turned the rearing of racehorses and gambling on them from an aristocratic pastime to a profession.
Relations with his mother went from bad to worse as she starved him of what he considered his rightful inheritance.
She re-married just eight months after her husband’s death, and he was appalled. She continued on her spendthrift and man-eating ways until she ran out of money.
He got his own back when, years later, he shopped her to the Inland Revenue and, unable to pay the tax she owed, she was declared bankrupt. She died in virtual penury, aged 93, in 1969.
Porchey, a notorious womaniser with a reputation for cuckolding half the men in Berkshire, lived to 89, rattling around in a draughty Highclere before dying in 1987. He was succeeded by the seventh earl, renowned as the Queen’s racing manager.
For all its dramatic invention, Downton, with its generally wholesome family relationships — so far anyway — seems tame by comparison with the real-life characters who inhabited the house.
The Granthams stick together — to a nation’s obvious relief, even Lady Mary and cousin Matthew managed to work things out on Christmas Day.
There were no such happy endings for the Carnarvons.
Not emotionally, nor financially — or the present generation, with huge bills to pay for its upkeep, would not have had to fling open the doors of the family’s historic home as the backdrop for the nation’s favourite toff soap.
It was reported that most urgently in need of repair at the 150-year-old Victorian gothic pile are the roof and the attic rooms where a little over a century ago Porchey and his sister lived and played — but where their uncaring aristocratic parents rarely took the trouble to venture.

I WAS looking forward to a shower and nap after the hard slog up and down Bung Jagoi recently, when William challenged members of the Malaysian Nature Society to more adventure in the bush. Not willing to be considered ‘soft’, I followed the trailblazer, together with eight of the most tenacious of the group, as he hacked his way through the thick undergrowth with a parang.
I was beginning to regret my decision when shortly after we entered the forest, I slipped and slid down a steep muddy bank to a stream, dirtying my shorts, white polo shirt and white hat, designed more for a stroll on a golf course. Fortunately I wore sandals that were well suited to wading through the stream while some of the others sloshed about in their heavy trekking boots.
We followed the stream as it grew from a bubbling brook to a big stream, illustrating to us William’s point on how the trees soak up the rainwater like a sponge and then slowly release it into the spring/stream. Without the trees, the water would just run off the ground surface causing erosion and flash floods. “Don’t cut down the trees,” he emphasised.
William also demonstrated some jungle-survival skills: how to suck up the sweet pure water stored in the hollow between joints in a bamboo stalk using a smaller bamboo stalk as a straw; and finding edible wild fruits so that we would never go thirsty or hungry if we got lost in the jungle. I hope I will never have to put these skills to the test.
We lingered at some rock pools where we soaked our feet in the cool water and watched small fishes including the beautiful striped tiger fish swim in the crystal clear stream. After several perilous crossings on bamboo poles slung across the stream where one of our group nearly fell into the water (not that there was any risk of drowning in the shallow river), we emerged in a clearing for padi and back to our cars, muddy and exhausted but happy to have gained a memorable experience in the ancestral home of the Bidayuh.
Golfers need to maintain stable footing so they can swing and concentrate properly. Golf shoes are the main contributors in achieving the stability that every golfer is looking for and to improve that quality, golf spikes are installed at the bottom of the footwear.
You need spikes on your golf shoes
Golf spikes are spiky and small protrusions that prevent unnecessary movements and slipping when swinging. Golf spikes are also able to better balance and stability when walking on turf, gravel, and sand. Metal golf spikes are usually the ones that are highly preferred by golfers on their golf shoes. A typical one can have 12 spikes that are distributed with the division of four spikes at the heel and eight spikes on the forefoot.
What are they?
Metal golf spikes are characterized by their steel posts, flanges and threads. They are highly preferred because of their durability. Most varieties require frequent cleaning by rinsing with water and then letting them dry after each game to avoid rusting. However, they are not usually allowed on common golf courses especially the grassy ones. these metal spikes are also capable of tearing up the grass.
Should you go for metal?
Since most golf courses have grass, metal golf spikes may not be the best ones to use. instead, you can go for ceramic or carbide golf spikes because they cannot tear the grass up. Don’t worry because these alternatives are made of durable tungsten carbide and ceramics, making them abrasion-resistant and ideal for experienced and serious golfers, too. They also have steel flanges and threads that you need to clean regularly to avoid corrosion and rusting. Opting for variants with plastic threads can also retard rusting.
But if you still insist on using metal spikes for your golf shoes, ensure that they have the best traction to provide you with the support you need on slippery and wet surfaces.
Complete information on metal golf spikes is available PickyGuide, the authority in free consumer advice. Access top-ranked, best-reviewed, and most competitively priced golf spikes in PickyGuide’s recommended products section.
In a game that requires a high level of accuracy and focus such as golf, the players need as much stability as they can muster. This stability is accorded to them by golf spikes, the small and spiky projections found on the underside of golf shoes. Golf spikes give the user proper traction for walking and moving around on sand, grass, and gravel found on the course. Given this function, golf spikes are subject to a lot of wear. In order to maintain their reliability, these spikes must be changed properly and regularly. This golf spike guide can breeze you through the process of changing them.
When to change spikes
Most golfers only change their spike when they become old and rusty. However, many a golf spike guide would recommend a more frequent changing time. In general, daily golfers are advised to change soft spikes once every other month, regardless of the spike’s condition. Likewise, weekend golfers should change their spikes every six months even if they are not yet fully worn down.
Golf spike guide to changing spikes
Before removing any of the spikes, make sure that you remove any accumulated dirt or grass from the underside of your golf shoes. After the shoes are clean, use a special cleat wrench and take out the spikes one at a time. Most spikes detach when turned counterclockwise. The next step is to clear off any dirt in the spike holes. The holes must be cleaned to make the insertion of new golf spikes a lot easier. Fit the new spikes into the holes and screw them in a clockwise manner. You can finish off the job by using cleat wrench again, this time to make sure that the spikes are tightly in place and would not fall off during your next golf game.
Summer is here and you want sandals. But with so many choices of sandals, what are you going to do? However will you select a pair? In the following article, we’ll debate the freshest sandals. We rate hotness on how beautiful the shoe looks, as well as the price. So don’t worry, you can still look lovely with a couple the latest sandals without having to sell your automobile to pay for them.
Wedged sandals are one of the most comfortable and hottest looking sandal, especially for shorter girls. Your foot is continuously raised, and does not make you to be walked around on your toes like with lots heeled shoes. Wedged sandals regularly look fancy and female, but you can stay snug while walking around the beach, or spending the day shopping on a hot summer day.
The gladiator sandal may or may not have a substantial heel. They’re gorgeous, feminine, and comfy. The difficulty with these is you do not need to spend too much time in the sun with them on, or else you can finish up with clumsy tan lines going up your feet and ankles.
An all-time favorite of many women, especially those that were kids in the corpulent platform sandal. It isn’t important how out-of-style some folk may claim that these are. Many celebs and ladies still sport these sandals because they’re so snug and they make you taller. Your foot is flat all the way across, with maybe only a slight increase of height in the heal. Over all, these sandals are light-weight and flat which makes them extremely cushty and the ideal sandal for any ladies dying to look taller with comfort. A pair of solid white or black ones would be ideal.
A great brand to say is Candies. Candies come in a wide variety of colors and styles, so you can wear them with just about anything. Prior to Britney Spears promoting Candies, the brand featured ad campaigns with other starlets like Hayden Panettiere, Hilary Duff, and Kelly Osbourne to help promote these juicy and ultra-sexy brands of shoes. Candies’ sandals come in all styles and colours. Two these actually horny sandals can range in price from $10-$100, depending on where you purchase them from and what style you are looking for. Other brands like Roxy, Juicy Couture, and Baby Phat also have a line of awfully trendy sandals which can be adequately priced depending on where you purchase them. Possibilities are, if you purchase them online you can get a superior deal than at their precise stores. You can always find the best prices for the freshest sandals online.
