This thread has given me a serious amount of lols—so thanks, guys! I don't think I've laughed this hard in ages?! *removes head from butts Those shoes, which turn up and have the laces tied round the middle, are so embarrassing! Whose makes/wears those—in Japan, I saw them everywhere?!
By the way, warning! Vibram five fingers sightings are on the rise. Yes, those horrific anatomical rubber socks that show each toe in frightening high contrast. I've seen it at least 2-3 times this week. I always make a point to make eye contact, look at the "shoes," then look back up and make a face of confusion and disgust. One of these perpetrators was actually walking around with his girlfriend - how she permitted the wearing of those is beyond me.
