How many of us have complained at one point or another that our feet hurt? I'm guessing almost everyone. So why don't we make every effort possible to wear comfortable shoes? I mean, we invented comfortable shoes for a reason. We were tired of our feet hurting! But yet, if I wear Nikes to work so I can be more comfortable at work, I'm looked down upon as unprofessional. What does wanting my feet to not hurt have anything to do with my professionalism?! If a sorority girl wants to wear flip flops to a chapter meeting she should be able to without being looked down upon. It's not disrespectful, it's just looking out for your own personal well being.
|Tell me these aren't classy!|
Now I know there are certain instances where appearance counts and you want to make a good impression. But if you are being judged solely on your choice of footwear, there is something seriously wrong. People should be allowed to wear comfortable shoes without fear of persecution. It is our right as humans to take care of our bodies, especially our feet, which we use so prominently in our everyday lives.
