Worn Two Different Shoes For A Day

One of the cool things about this project is having an excuse to do something silly that I've never done, just as kind of a social experiment, to see what peoples' reactions will be. Today, I wore two different shoes. They're actually the same model shoe, but the colors are radically different.

I have two pairs of
Inov-8 f-lite 195s, one is black with orange trim (colored that myself - go Giants!) and the other is red with white trim.

I started the day by going to the dentist for a periodic cleaning. My dentist didn't mention my shoes, but the hygienist did. She said she wasn't going to say anything at first, but then she mentioned how the kids in the 80's used to wear two different Chuck Taylors. I then was able to tell her about this site, and she wrote it down so she could check it out later. Cool!

I went to work after I got the approval of my dentist. (No cavities!) One of my favorite co-workers, Laura Killmaster (yes, that really is her last name - how awesome is that?) said, "Hey, that's cute! I like that!" as she was pointing at my shoes. I smiled and said, "Thanks!"

Next, I went to the gym with my CrossFit group. It was fun to exercise with different shoes. Our workout included cleans.

There were also burpees.

I had a good time taking a shower with my shoes. (Just kidding. I didn't do that.)

After work, I also went to my sculpture class. My instructor
Richard Miller noticed my shoes and said, "You've got two different shoes. I smiled and replied, "Yes, I do." He said, "It's like that movie with the one red shoe." I had to look it up later to find out he meant The Man With One Red Shoe. I kind of want to see that now.

I saw a bunch of people looking at my shoes even if very few actually said anything to me. This was totally a fun social experiment, especially since it was interesting to see which people noticed and which didn't. Also, it was cool to see what people would say through out the day.
