Sometimes when you wander around England you can´t help it, you will be forced to look at this:
(it´s not my own photo...I can hardly stop someone on the street asking for a photo simply cause "The way you wear your boots just looks so extraordinarily bad")
So, sometimes I want to send at least 50% of the British ladies (the men probably too - I just don´t seem to look at their feet that much) to some ballet classes...or to the orthopaedic specialist.
Your soles are made for walking - not the left or the right edge of your feet. That´s why when it comes to shoes they have a hard wearing sole at the bottom and are usually weaker on the sides.Simples.
How can you put those boots into your hall or cupboard after wearing without looking at them thinking that something is seriously wrong?!? Don´t get it.
edit: OK, this phenomenon is not limited to the UK and unfortunately can be spotted in e.g. Germany and France too but trust me, I have never seen it so often as on the island!
