And why did this become fashionable?
I am surprised they don't go lame and break ankles. In this case, I dunno how you can consider the chub squeezing out round the laces classy or sexy... but whadda I know? I live under a rock in the forest. I wonder though - I have heard that women dress up for each other first and their men second... and maybe this feeds into that, if it's true?
