Dear baby boomers,
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You made my ugly-as-sin, chunky, deep-cut, orthopedic “sneakers” acceptable to wear with my fancy tailored business suit. I don’t have to pull a Mr. Rogers and change into my beautiful Italian dress shoes while choking down a grimace due to the foot pain.
Because of you, boomers, I can unapologetically rock these bad-boy size 12 shoes (but aren’t they really a 13 with all the cushion?) as I stand up from the speaker’s table. I thank you; my hammer toes thank you; and the global orthopedic footwear market currently valued at $8.3 billion thanks you too!
