Shoes on little feet
For some strange reason, I thought shoes were meant to be worn. To keep the feet from getting dirty when you ran in the mud. To protect them from getting hurt when you stepped on something sharp.
Shoes are something you slip your feet into when you step out of the house, and abandon as soon as you can. Shoes deny you the grip when you try to climb up the slidey part of a slide. They don’t let you feel the roughness of sand or the smoothness of metal.
Shoes are pretty, but not on little feet.
