National Two Different Colored Shoes Day
Do you remember standing in front of your shoe collection and wondering which one is right for you? The red flats? The white pumps? The lavender trainers You could wear whatever you wanted. Even if you had to choose between two different colors of shoes. But, what if it was really preferable? Does that sound like madcap shoe-color heaven to you? Yes, we do!
If you haven’t been a fan of the Avant-Garde or have a few pairs a-symmetrically different colored shoes, chances are you have never experienced the joy of wearing completely different shoes. National Two Different Colored Shoes Day is a day where you can have your dreams of wearing two completely different shoes and not be judged.
Today is National Two Different Colored Shoes Day. This day celebrates diversity and can be worn with pride by anyone, whether you are going to work, school, or just lounging around at home. This crazy event is explained in more detail.
It’s easy to believe that National Two Different Colored Shoes Day was an accident. Maybe someone was tired, and accidentally wore odd shoes to work. Perhaps the shoe companies created the day to try and sell more crazy, brightly colored shoes. The truth is, neither of these scenarios are true. Instead, the day was actually created by an inspiring woman who was tired of conforming with societal norms.
This quirky celebration was created by Dr. Arlene Kaiser to celebrate the diversity and uniqueness that makes humans great. Imagine how boring the world could be if everyone were identical. Row after row of identical houses, clothes, people, religions, and philosophies can be found everywhere. Dr. Kaiser could not do it, at least not without cringing. So, as a small gesture of her love for differences, she began wearing two different shoes every other week, while still going about her day.
It started as a demonstration of differences by one person for a few days each week. People began to talk and it became a very popular event. Before Dr. Arlene Kaiser realized what was happening, her simple demonstration was a well-known event and National Two Different Colored Shoes Day was created!
Within a few hours, Dr. Arlene had people of all walks and ages join her to celebrate their differences. They wore two different shoes and the event spread worldwide. You may be the only one celebrating this day overseas, so don’t worry!
