So have you ever gone to the shoe store, but you forgot to wear socks.
Well, this is what you get to try-on shoes.
These absolutely crappy, thin, brownish wades of disposable nylon socks.
How completely unappealing--especially piled up like this and looking like they are getting reused again and again.
The try-on socks look shitty, feel shitty, and don't help you try-on anything, because they aren't the same density or texture as regular socks.
Talk about penny wise and dollar foolish--if the store won't even invest in a proper pair of socks for their customers, then how much do they value their business?
How about an intelligent shoe store with a little class that actually has some real pairs of socks for their customers, and when you're done they send them out to the cleaners or maybe even let you keep the pair if you buy the shoes! ;-)
