Shoe-Swapping Fad

The hot high-school fad of 1947, according to Life magazine:

Every morning before school, girls meet on school steps and swap one shoe and sock with a friend. Then they walk around with shoes that do not match.

Couldn't have been comfortable walking around all day with mismatched shoes. Fashion over comfort, I guess.

If your friend's feet are a half-size smaller or bigger than yours, the return of this fad could be the end of the usual complain about shoes, e.g. "my right foot is okay but my left foot hurts" or the other way around. At last, a solution for asymetrical feet!

Apparently those girls had no fear of Tinea Pedis.
