I am always amazed when I see people walking on the street wearing flip-flops, high heels, sandals and backless shoes of all kinds. It’s absurd. When wearing these shoes you cannot walk normally with good balance–you have to worry about your shoes falling off. You cannot run away without losing your shoes. You always have to worry about getting your toes stepped on. You cannot fight. You are pinned down in the name of fashion and vulnerable. Pfui!
Better is to wear comfortable shoes that fit properly on the street and then change when you get to your destination. That’s what briefcases, purses, and shopping bags are for.
