I can’t help but think of how much fun it would be to be wearing shoes in public at every meal—which is always fun! I’d make my shoes so that I’d have to walk the rest of the day—the whole time.
When you’re wearing shoes you don’t think about them or have them go past you as you’re walking. That’s the way your life is. You’re going to be a lot more comfortable if you get up on a stool (or any other chair) to take them off. If you don’t get up on a stool, you’re going to have a nightmare.
Well coaches shoes are for guys who want to wear shoes in public, but theres an enormous market of women who want to wear shoes just like men and who dont want to have to walk around in shoes all day. So what do they do? They buy a set of coach men shoes and put together a set of shoes that would be comfortable for them.
I wouldnt expect any women to be able to wear shoes like men because they arent men. But I would expect a lot of women to be wearing shoes like men because it is a comfortable way to wear shoes. And I would expect a big market of women in the public to be wearing coach men shoes because it is comfortable to wear shoes in public.
A similar thing happened in the world of football. When the Chicago Bears first started wearing shoes in the 1970s, they were forced to change the color of their shoes to match the uniforms. The team’s color was blue and all the players were required to wear blue shoes.
There is a very old story about a Japanese emperor who wanted to look better than his subjects, so he ordered his men to wear blue shoes. After the men died, they were buried in the emperor’s shoes. This was a very common method of purging the empire.
This story is still being told today, but the practice died out in the 90s. In the last 20 years, the NFL has largely adopted blue shoes as a uniform color for its players. The only real difference is that blue shoes are being used in a more athletic sense. There is still a lot of debate about how much the NFL will actually change the color of its shoes, but I would love to see the Bears actually get rid of blue shoes and start wearing them as a uniform again.
The NFL is not the only one that feels the need to adopt a new uniform color. In the 1950s and ’60s, when I was growing up, I wore a pair of white (no longer blue) shoes to school and walked around wearing navy blue ones. It wasn’t until I was in college that I realized I actually had white shoes and not navy ones.
Of course, the same goes for the color of my socks. I go to a school where everyone wears white socks with purple heels. But in my home, my socks are purple and my shoes are white. So in the locker room, I always pick a new pair of white shoes.
As it turns out, I probably have a bit more of a fashion background than most people. I think that’s because I grew up in a house where my mother let me wear my own clothes. And in those days, I wore blue shoes.
