...I thought since I showed you some Famolare sandals, I should probably hunt down a photo of Yo-yo sandals as well.
These are pretty close to what I had. Mine had this exact same sole, but the straps were sort-of taupe in color and weren't braided.
I was VERY proud of my Yo-Yos and my Famolares... thinking back, I know my parents were really working hard (my mom was a teacher and my dad was in med school) and didn't have a lot of money to go around, so I know it was a sacrifice to spring for cool shoes like this. I didn't get everything I wanted, but Mom did manage to see to it that I didn't feel left out of little things like fashion.
