    The same thing has happened to me! I bought new black shoes for a job interview and what I didn't realise when I was crossing my legs and then changing to cross my legs the other way I had the message 'Do you believe in love at first sight?' 'Or shall I walk passed again?' flashing at the interview panal from the soles of my shoes. I was so embarrassed when I found out later. STill got the job though....no proposals yet....

    I have another pair of brown shows that look similar to yours Martin (less pointy though) and they have some dodgy picture and writing on which get flashed to colleagues at meetings. They were from River Island I think.

    I can remember, way back in the 1960's, a bride, kneeling at the Altar at her wedding, with the price written in ink on the soles of her shoes; very MSE - they only used to do that in the sales!
    Seriously though, Martin, didn't the style of the shoes tell you that there was something wrong with them?

    Oooops! Those will really keep you on your toes, ha ha! Soles aside though, I'm loving your taste in shoes, Martin :-) Very snazzy.
    mmmm, still seeking something witty to be my auto-signature . . . so this will have to suffice for now ;)

    Why are they wrong for Parliament? They're all in league with the devil anyhow!

    I like shoes with a bit of grip on the soles.
