Black Adidas shell toe trainers are pretty popular with the kids here (and when I say kids I mean anyone up to 30-somethings who still are mildly in touch with youth culture).

You probably know what these shoes look like, but just in case you don't, they look like this:



Now...I don't tend to care too much about fashion statements (except for the ridiculous pants-below-my-butt-defying-gravity-somehow look) but I have always found these shoes slightly ridiculous. More than slightly ridiculous, in fact, but I didn't know why. Especially when they are paired with white laces.

And today it hit me: they look like hockey skates. That toe makes them look like hockey skates.




It looks like people are wandering around college all day with skates on.

Hockey skates and fashion do not compute in my brain. But the realisation has made me like them a little bit more.

That would be awesome! It would be a very Canadian version of wheelies:
