Yesterday I slid my bare foot into a pointy-toed shoe offering itself for sale on a shelf at Macy's (Herald Square). It was from Kenneth Cole Reaction. My reaction, Mr. Cole, was one of revulsion. Now, I know it's not your fault that the sight of my foot involved in such a trendy venue made me recoil in disgust and quickly slide my foot out hoping no one saw it in there in the first place, but on some level it is your fault that pointy-toed shoes exist. Even the shoe was embarrassed, marked down like that. Like a pariah!
