Funny Shoes Are Worth It
I wore these shoes today.
"Nice shoes. They're kind of crazy," one of the (male) co-op students on my team said to me as we walked to the sushi restaurant for a team lunch. He squinted at the writing. "Actually, they're really crazy."
The other (male) co-op leaned in and squinted, too. Both of them couldn't get over the fact that one shoe was different from the other.
Two weeks or so ago, I wore these shoes to work. One of the documentation managers came by my desk to discuss release notes. We were looking up something on my computer when he suddenly said, "Do your shoes say 'Lady Luck'?"
Why yes, yes they do.
Last fall, another male coworker caught sight of my Kitson sneakers and couldn't stop laughing for 10 minutes. He finally stopped long enough to joke, "Who designed your shoes, Liberace?"
You see? Kooky shoes pay for themselves just by virtue of their amusement factor.
