I know, I hate when people do that!
"Hey, I like your shoes! Do you mind if I lay on the floor so that I can see their profile from the side?"
Edit: Dogs are notorious for doing that
Looks awkward now that you point it out, but I never noticed before despite having scrutinized every aspect of the boots multiple times.
Might be the point of view the pic was taken from. IRL I don't think it looks as awkward, but still I'll be sure not to let anyone look at the side of my boots while they are lying on the floor, just to be safe.
They don't look that bad. I just noticed it, and was wondering if it was just me. I'd still wear them proudly.
You are definitely on to something, but I don't like them any less because of it. You have a very, VERY good eye for detail.
(I noticed that they had a full heel but only stitching around the front 270 degrees, but I didn't notice how awkward it looked until you pointed it out.)
