My first response to seeing them in all of their yellow glory was to put them in the muddy shoe box under a pair of Bassman's well-used boots. I could still see the yellow, though, and spent the evening glowering at them from across the room.
However, because I am striving to be more Sensible, I reluctantly have come around to the idea that I'm going to have to wear the Bumblebees eventually so, today, I did just that. I wore them to and from work. It's a 5-minute walk - IN PUBLIC - from my car to my office, through wet leaves and hidden puddles which, unfortunately, left no mark on them. They aren't just yellow, they are teflon as well.

My feet may thank me for this, but the rest of me is still sulking.
