Finishing up in the locker room.
Friend sees me.
“Hey, where’d you get those shoes. Those are cool.”
“Online. They’re called Xero Shoes. They’re for barefoot running.”
He looks closer, “Hey, someone might mistake those for women’s shoes.”
Smiling, “Take another look. They’re not even the same pair of shoes. Do I look like I’m concerned about being mistaken for wearing women’s shoes?”
For what it’s worth, this style of footwear was designed before “men’s” or “women’s” style shoes even existed. Back when they were just called shoes… Or something.
