Summer trends in the city
After spending a lot of time riding the Shanghai metro yesterday, I spotted an obvious (and creepy) summer trend amongst the citizens: Crocs! On people’s feet! Everywhere!
Not only are these shoes ugly when it comes to shape, colour and size, but they are also very hard to match. Just look at these brave ladies who stepped out, without (obviously?) thinking about WHAT they would be stepping out in? Not a pretty sight.
The phenomenon was Shanghai-wide. In Puding, Puxi, yeah, even at the railway station I saw people walking around in these unflattering shoes. Men and women, both guilty. No one managed to pull it off. (Is that even possible?!)
I apologize if I am insulting any Crocs lover out there, I have personally never tried this kind of shoe, but just from looking at it, I know I never will either.
Ps. mind the bad photo quality. My mobie camera isn't what it's supposed to be.
