Are Strappy Sandals the New Backtoo?
I was having drinks with my friend Manish last weekend when he stopped to admire my new sandals. “I like them because the straps are thick,” he said, looking them over with approval. “Not too revealing.”
“It’s possible to have shoes that are too revealing?” I asked.
“Absolutely,” he said. “If a girl is showing too much foot, I assume that she’s a slut. Especially – especially – if they’re lace-up. I think it's part of the fall-out from Sex and the City.”
“I thought the slut litmus test was always the tramp stamp -- whether or not the girl has a back tattoo?” I said.
“Oh, strappy sandals are the new back tattoo,” he declared. “The first thing I do when I meet a girl is check out her feet. If her shoes are too skimpy, I won't go there." Who knew?
