the hungry feet syndrome
I hate it when this happens. Or when I witness this syndrome on other people. It's uncomfortable and it's very disorienting. If I see another person with it, the uncomfy-ness somehow resonates. What's unfortunate is that sometimes they themselves don't mind. Urgh.

So what is this hungry feet syndrome? I have observed two scenarios:

Feet hungry for socks. The very disturbing sight and sensation of socks slowly being sucked into the shoe. Every time you take a step, you need to tug it back up again. And the problem with this problem is that it is a recurring one. Furthermore, it's hard to pinpoint the cause of such disorder. Is it the sock? The shoe? The way you walk? This is why I prefer sandals. Less complications.

Feet hungry for pant legs. I see more victims of this rather than the one above. I witness these hapless people almost everyday, and I have to bear with the suffering sight of it until I get to my floor. This will most probably happen when the shoes you are wearing are slip-ons, rarely but could happen if it has an ankle strap, and by its nature, will not happen if your shoes are closed. The tragedy: your pants become eaten and trapped within the jaws of your foot and your shoe. And the result is a very annoyed, unfocused and totally unfashionable you.

And men say they can't see why we ladies have assigned different shoes for specific pants of different materials and lengths? Bah.

    I'm an avid leather chinelas fan & would never EVER wear sports shoes bumabaho paa ko nyan. SOCK really sucks on summer months pero pag winter na I love them.

    My first love was in HS. I fell in love with the K-SWISS shoes.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
