I don't suppose that anyone really paid that much attention to my shoes (remember that remark in The Shawshank Redemption? - I always thought that a bit strange, because I do notice people's shoes. Perhaps men don't...), but throughout that first year of secondary school I felt painfully aware that even my shoes didn't fit in with everyone else's. In later years I went through a couple of pairs of t-bars in an attempt to feel like more of the crowd. But by year 12, I celebrated being different by wearing these funky black canvas shoes that I'd got in France in preceding summer holidays. Vive la difference....
And my point is? T-bars might have been the height of fashion for school-wear, but you don't see many grown-ups wearing them. They are, however, a damn fine shoe for showing off hand-knitted socks. So here are my new Footprints T-bar shoes teamed with a newly finished pair of socks.
