Kentucky Color: I don't believe

Click on headline for essay with photo of product which caused disbelief
By BIlly Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

There are many things about which I've made predictions, some of which were prophetically correct and some of which proved to be me speaking out about things of which I obviously had no knowledge. This time however, I feel pretty confident in my prophetic utterances.

I don't believe the creators of this product had their heads, or should I have said feet, on straight. Obviously, they've made several miscalculations.

First, they were simply atrocious at math. Humans for the most part have five toes, cartoon characters have three and horses have none. I can think of no entities living or otherwise that wear shoes that have four toes.

Secondly, the wearer of these shoes would necessarily need to go sockless unless they could find four toed socks.

Finally, most folks of which I'm familiar have widely varying toe lengths which would not lend itself to a very comfortable fit in these shoes. Of course not everyone has feet as perfect as mine. - Billy Joe Fudge
